2019 finish #2

Another finish and not the one I anticipated in February. My Antebellum Album quilt top is complete but it got pushed to the side by this one.

I put this together in about 10 days. It’s for a special someone who lives on the east coast who needs a hug! Since I’m in Nevada, I’m sending a quilted hug. I love this Villa Rosa pattern called Tiffany which uses 2.5 strips. I usually would do free motion quilting but wanting to get it out quick I used an Urban Elementz panto called Cool Beans which looks fabulous. I will definitely be making one of these for myself.

In other news, an old quilting companion has died.

This old gal has been with me since 2006 She has been a bit leaky of late but on Sunday she just gave up. Goodbye old friend 😥! So today I replaced her with a Rowena who has big shoes to fill.

Rainbow Scrap Challenge-March edition

I waited anxiously for the RSC color to be announced in early March. I pulled my scraps and I’ve finally finished my blocks. This is the third month and I have worked out a system to get them done efficiently. I have 12 blocks so far.

A by product of the blocks are these little triangles.

The first month I didn’t notice them in the excitement of starting a new project. But in February they started whispering to me but I ignored them. This month, however, there were too many to ignore. I could hear my grandmother saying “waste not, want not”. Once I finished my blocks, I sewed them all together. I’m going to square them up and put them in a box. I’m not sure whether these little 1.5 blocks will be part of this project or a mini quilt but they have been saved from the trash bin. Head over and see what everyone is doing on Scrap Happy Saturday !
