Working hard

I’ve been working hard on a very old quilt the last few days and I’m happy to say I’ve made a lot of progress!  This is the 2010 Quilt Show BOM.  When I started this I had just found out I was pregnant with Alex and somehow through the year I managed to get my blocks done on time until he was born in October.  Took me awhile to finish the November and December blocks, and I worked on it a little the last time I went to the guild sew-in.  I’ve put on 4 borders and I have 4 borders left to do.  I need to sort out the half square triangles that make up the next border and work on putting them together, but today I’m planning on getting the scrappy car quilt on the frame and quilted.  Since it’s only 36″ x 36″ I doubt it’ll take long to quilt with a pantograph, but I’d like to take something to guild for show and tell this month.  It’s been so long since I’ve shown anything!  I’m also thinking about taking my hexagon quilt, even though it’s not quilted just so I can show it off, I’m really proud of it!  I think I am going to use some already made binding I found in the cupboard for the car quilt, I think it might be enough, and it’s a scrappy binding so it’ll fit with the scrappy squares.

  1. I’m so happy to see people still working on this quilt from TQS. I finished mine, but I want to have it quilted by checkbook 🙂 and I’m still not able to write that check.

    Yours is so pretty. It’s so intriguing to see how many different ways there are to do this pattern………well, colorways, I mean. I have liked them ALL.
