I had high hopes for completing a slew of projects on this vacation. Unfortunately, they were dashed, not by the usual reasons but for running out of fabric. Can you believe that!!
Here is what I did accomplish, which definitely will put me in good stead for upcoming weeks (please excuse the photos as I did not have my usual settings or choices in the beach house we were renting).
Spoonflower Sample Quilt
This was actually the one finish I really had. I finished all 9 blocks for my Spoonflower Sample quilt. That means all my classes are prepared for the Modern Block series I am doing at Spoonflower.
Just the white sashing to add and then onto finishing the whole quilt!!
One of the designs I liked from the first week of Quilt Design a day, the Neighborhood quilt, has been sponsored by Oakshott cottons.
I was actually able to make a start on it yesterday, and I am already 1/2 way through making this mini quilt (32″ x 34″). The fabric colors are amazing and I am surprised at how well it sew up without too much fraying. I totally understand the love of oakshott cotton now.
“Phased Circles” quilt
As mentioned on Wednesday, the back is almost complete but I ran out of 1 print + Kona white 2.5″ strips.
Paper Piecing Testing
I am super excited about this pattern, I am testing. It took a little while but all pieces are cut and glued….ready to start!!
It’s a wrap. That is all the progress and 1 finish I made this week. So, overall not too bad, if I do say so myself. Linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday.
Wow you have been ridiculously busy. I am dying to see the paper pieced pattern come together.
Your Spoonflower sample quilt looks like it was made at the beach; has that summer, fresh, fun vibe about it. Could see it being used at a beachy bon fire party, or draped over some drift wood.
Love the quilt that you made at the beach!
Loving your neighbourhood quilt! You sure were busy for being on holiday 😉
The Spoonflower sample quilt is just gorgeous! Love the design and I am looking forward to see how you quilt it. Enjoy your holiday, Barbora
