I was actually very productive this week...finished one quilt, made progress on another, and started a third.
First, the finish:
The strip quilt is done! More details are here.
I finished the back of the green/yellow plus quilt for my husband. Now to just get it together and pick out a binding. Hopefully this will be finished in the next week, but more than likely not. Good thing our anniversary isn't until September.
Just getting started:
I started cutting the fabrics for a Kaleidoscope quilt. I'm not sure yet if this was the best idea. I have all the prints cut and over half of the solids. I plan on making the larger size, possibly as a gift for my best friend, whose birthday is sometime in September. (Isn't that awful? We both know about when the other's birthday is, but we never get it right. I think it's the 16th. Or the 20th) But, her anniversary is in October, so I could always fall back on that date if I don't get it done.
Anyway, not sure if I have the necessary skills for this baby. I'm not known for my accuracy in cutting, and I'm guessing that is pretty important here. So I may get frustrated and throw it in a drawer. But, I absolutely love the fabrics. Mostly Heirloom, with a Grand Bazaar, and possibly a Lace Elements. I actually didn't use the Modern Meadow that is shown in the first picture. Even if I give up on the quilt I will definitely make something else with these fabrics, possibly a table runner for our dining room.
And now for the question of the day...I'm narrowing down our options for a little trip in a few weeks and am trying to choose between Wisconsin or Michigan, or going south to Alabama/Florida. Any opinions? I'm stumped.
