Relatively quiet quilting week behind us, the crazy busy quilting week before us!
Snap Pop Baby Quilt Top
Done! Very bright and colourful, and will go to baby-of-unknown-sex (as compared to baby-of-known-sex, who is a boy).
Pinning the rows together:
Quilting to happen in the next week. Maybe.
The Aunt's Quilt
My aunt spotted some fabric and wanted a quilt made out of it. She wanted just the fabric with the edges hemmed.
This is my compromise. It's not a style I like, but it's in the taste of my aunt, so...
Although I am thinking about doing the Starburst Quilt by Sukie with the fabrics as a background, and solids:
More work than I have time for in the next two days, though!
Maybe chop it into squares and sash it, posting it with the four-patch squares? That would break up the main fabric a little.
I've had people suggest framing it, and one person suggesting I leave it as is. Any thoughts? If you have suggestions, make them here at the post.
SydMQG Group Quilt
We got the blocks all sewn up a couple of weeks ago:
SydMQG President Penny Poppleton then added sashing and posting. All of it. By herself. (OMG.)
She also did the main piecing for the backing, before handing it off to me so I could add the remainder (yardage, mostly):
I'll be quilting it on Saturday at the LQS with the longarm. Alas, this means I cannot attend the SydMQG sew-in at Greta's Handicrafts. *sadface*
Edge-to-edge quilting - nothing fancy - just my usual fiery curls:
Hopefully, I will also be quilting at least one other quilt, possibly two if there is time enough. I was hoping to get Aunty's Quilt top and backing done so I could quilt it on Saturday, too. I've got the machine booked for the whole day (although 8 hours of longarm quilting may very well do me in). It depends on how tricksy things get...
Ditto with the Bloom Bloom Pow QAL. *sigh*
And the Retro Rubies QAL.
So, what you been doing? I've been bad about commenting on other people's WIP Wednesday projects. Too squished for time, alas!
ETA: Penny Poppleton (SydMQG Pres) has another pic of the quilt blocks (and me laying them out) over at her WIP Wednesday post! Go check it out!
