Good progress was made this week on my version of Bonnie's Sister's Choice Quilt. (Free pattern found here.) A few days ago, I did some math and decided to make 12 more blocks and make 2 quilts instead of one. Crazy? Nah, I have a plan!!
Quilt #1 is getting the rest of it's borders today. Quilt #2 will be layed out and blocks stacked, ready to sew together.
Funny story........most of the blocks have the same outer neutral per block with lots of neutrals being used. A few are scrappy. The last 12 blocks....the centers are sewn spinning in the opposite direction from all the others. I didn't even think about it until I was pressing them. Does that bother me? No, it's a scrappy, fun quilt. One day someone will look at it and wonder what was she thinking. The answer will be "She wasn't! She was doing mindless sewing, having a wonderful time with her fabrics."
The border fabrics are nowhere in the quilt. Again, does this bother me.....NO. I love this quilt and I'm so happy I chose it/them to work on before Grand Illusion starts. I need to hurry, I want both tops finished before the 29th.
See what others have on their design wall at Patchwork Times.
My plans for this week:
- Finish Quilt #1
- Finish Quilt #2
- Rearrange sewing table
