I somehow missed this photo last week and I wanted to post it. Muriel did such a beautiful job on this quilt and since she hasn't got her blog up and running yet, I get to show off her work over here.
Here is a flimsy finish. This was the G.O.T. (Gathered over Time) swap I participated in and I got all the setting triangles cut and sewn and the top is now together. I'm currently marking it as I'm going to hand quilt this with a traditional Baptist Fan pattern.
What a great selection of fabrics, there are no repeats in the 9 patch or the setting squares. Swaps are excellent for this.
Since that is now off my design wall, I pulled this WIP out and have got to work on it. I have all, almost all the blocks pieced. This quilt is for my nephew. He wanted blue and silver. Since there isn't much out there for grey/silver fabrics, I went with the scrappy creams. Plus I wanted all the bonus 1/2 sq triangle to use in a future project. So far I have a bag of brown/cream and now a stack of blue/cream. The next one is red/cream and I have a pile of greens just waiting to get cut into strips for one last top of this pattern. It's from Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville, check it out! I love her site.
One of my local quilt shops was donating a percentage of their Sat sales to Relay for Life, so I had to make a trip over there. A quilter can always use a yard or two of green batik, right? And I finally bought myself a Hera marker. For some crazy reason, I pulled out this WIP this week and started hand quilting it. It's not like I don't have a sampler on the go and the above mentioned second hand project I want to start.....geez
