Just a few of the quilt tops awaiting some attention. This is the second spare bedroom and when someone actually needs to sleep here it takes a while to remove the many quilts and tops piled up here. Unless they want to do the "Princess and the Pea" thing.
My Bernina Q20 needs some attention--she's been ignored too long lately. I recently set a goal for myself to quilt at least one quilt a month until I'm more or less caught up. The other day I quilted my Challenge quilt for our guild meeting in two weeks--that really doesn't count as it's a new "add" to the pile. Here are the first two I am tackling, starting today:
An old pattern from a Possibilities book of baby quilts. This will be fun and easy to meander all over. The hearts in the borders are just fused in place so I'll be sure to hit them with some stitches as I quilt.
I enjoyed teaching yesterday. In the morning the Smitten class finished up. The students returned from a 2 week break with blocks done, a few questions, and were very eager to learn how to assemble the quilt--it's more challenging than the usual quilt settings as all the blocks are hexagons and need to be set-in to the blocks beside each other:
|Donna's upper left corner, sewn together|
|Catherine's large stack of blocks|
|Celia is hand-piecing her blocks--a great option.|
This week I also picked some more blackberries from our vines:
