Q3 Finish-a-Long Recap
Back in July I created my "To Do" list for the Q3 Quilt-A-Long. Now the time has come to take stock and see what all I actually accomplished this quarter. Unfortunately I did NOT get the king chevron quilt done. I got soooo darn close tho! The top is done, the binding is ready, and I have the back fabric sitting on my shelf. I just need to augment the backing with some left-over rejected blocks and then layer, baste, quilt, and bind. (Ok that's still a lot to do.)
I did better on the next two items on my list and completed my Scrappy Trips quilt, and my turquoise half-square triangle low-volume quilt. The last turquoise strip quilt I didn't even touch once I posted it on my To DO list...
In looking back at what I've done this quarter, 2 out of 4 completed projects isn't so bad. Especially when I realize that I created 2 additional quilt tops spontaneously: a St. Louis 16-patch, and a modern mega-block log cabin baby quilt. Both are just quilt tops currently, so you'll probably see them on my Q4 To DO list here in a few weeks.
I have referred to this quilt by many names, and in fact it has had several layouts in the process of being laid out. When I began this quilt, I knew I wanted to work with half-square triangles, and wanted to include low volume fabrics contrasted with predominantly tone-on-tone or white-on-color gray and turquoise fabrics. But I was unsure of what actual design I wanted to make. You can see a previous post about this quilt here.
I quilted this outlining the diamonds on both sides of the seams, and then quilted parallel lines in the border.
The quilt is backed in Ana Davis' "Buds" fabric in turquoise for Blend Fabrics, and is bound in a fabric from my stash.
This is my SECOND finish for the Q3 Finish-A-Long, and has been listed for sale in my Etsy store.
