This past week has been a wonderful opportunity for me to get out some projects I've been wanting to work on. One is an old quilt that I've been repairing. I will begin quilting on that this coming week. I've not asked for permission from the owner to post a picture of her quilt, so best not to.
I've also been working on a quilt from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltsville website called Crayon Box. You can view her pattern here.
I went with 20 blocks, 4 across and 5 down. I'm washing the border fabrics as I'm typing this.
The next project is another of Bonnie Hunter's called String-X! pattern
Borders are finished on this one and it's waiting in line for quilting.
You can see a theme going here, and that is scrappy! And last but not least, one more project that is ongoing:
These are Quilt As You Go blocks (QAYG) and I'm leaning how to do these. I am doing this because I want to learn the concept and because it is making use of the small batting scraps. As a longarm quilter I can already tell you that it is not quicker...but I'm enjoying the process and have researched several methods to join the blocks. I guess there are enough blocks to give that a try, but I must admit that making the blocks with the batting and backing already sandwiched together is addicting. What fun!
