This week has been rather less productive as work ramps up. With perhaps the exception of Saturday, when I had the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild meet-up, and then spent the afternoon putting together my Pantone Quilt Challenge 2014...not much movement!
46" x 61"
Full post about it's creation is here.
It's not particularly spectactular when compared to the other quilts in the challenge, but considering I only even imagined doing this it three weeks ago, I think it's quite good. And another quilt done!
I really need to make a few more of these quilts - they're fast, they're pretty good stash-busters and they make excellent gifts for very little effort!
Do You Know Where You're Going To?
That's this quilt:
Trimming HSTs is a painful and painstaking process at the best of times, and I find I can usually only do it when I'm at a guild meeting or watching television shows. And even that's difficult.
I got these done at the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild sew-in at Greta's Handicrafts on Sydney's North Shore.
Thank heavens they're done.
Now I just have to sew them all together so the points match. And perform appropriate math to piece it all together.
Yeah, not looking forward to that.
No progress. I'll cut up the squares over the next couple of weeks since this one is easy enough. Split Nine Patches: lovely and simple (although, again with the trimming and matching things up).
My bible study leaders from the last two years have just had their first kid, and I should really make them a quilt for him! Haven't met him yet, but that's not surprising - they're getting used to being parents, I'm good with giving them time.
Something modern, in Kona Ash and various greens, I think.
I need to start cutting up fabrics for an instagram sale - I think I'm going to make it ANZAC day (25th April), because that's an Australian National public holiday, and far enough away that I'll have time and space to actually get things cut up and sorted out.
I need to start sewing these on the way to work. With three trains to catch and plenty of waiting time, it shouldn't be too hard to get my fingers doing these while my brain gears up for work.
What have you been doing lately?
