I finished the borders on two quilt and made the backings for four quilts. I also took a Mariners Compass class and discovered that it is a lot easier to make than it looks. I have been busy sewing away on blocks.
This is a very old round-robin that I was in, one of two and the second one my quilt along with others was lost along the way. I am not sure it I will ever do another unless I know the people participating very well, and have built up a lot of trust with them. I was a part of the group that I did this one with for a long time and had done several block swaps with them, but the second time I participated in around robin things were not good. I am not sure what I will do with this quilt once it is done as I am not sure if I really like all the borders that were added to my block so I may gift or donate the quilt.
This one is quilted and awaiting binding so I can get it the mail to its recipient. Shirley Jackson did a great job with the quilting.
I also started a quilt that has been on my bucket list forever ad that is the Mariners Compass. Below you will find one finished compass and three other compasses that are in progress. I am debating on whether to make it three by four or three by three. I guess that will depend on how many compasses I decide to make.
This first one is laid out on the two fabrics I will use as backgrounds for the blocks and the center is not yet appliquéd.
|This one is the same as the first one.|
|I think this one is my favorite.|
I also finished my second set of black and white split nines to swap and need to get them in the mail asap,
