We have just a few finishes to flaunt this month. As a guild, we have numerous projects in the works and I suspect that our members are working to get their portions completed or are still recovering from this week’s QuiltCon registration frenzy.
Don't forget to flaunt YOUR finish at the end of this post!
For our guild Quilt Show in October, we’ve all been asked to make two bunting flags. If you've already completed your flags, please get them to Amanda L. If you haven't started them yet, here's a little inspiration for you...
Ann completed her two flags this month. She found the pattern for the origami crane online and thought she’d give it her own twist by using prints instead of just solids. “I don’t do much paper piecing and this one was a little challenging because I didn’t have written directions and had to search out piecing order instructions.”
For the second flag, “I sat with graph paper pad in hand and sketched and sketched away until I came up with the design. Simple. Fun. Different from the first one. And, yeah, it’s got a message.”
Amanda L. has really wanted to get around to making some decorative items for various holidays and use up her scraps. Amanda designed this beautiful “Stars and Stripes Table Runner”. “It’s the first of, hopefully, many more fun, fast and scrappy holiday projects”. You can get the FREE pattern by visiting Amanda’s blog The Cozy Pumpkin.
Jana put the finishing touches and binding on this quilt. For those of you who remember, yes, this is the quilt top that was already pieced and she saved from an uncertain future. We still love her amazing quilting!
Regina used 4 traditional log-cabin quilt blocks that she discovered buried in her stash to make this great quilt for her husband for Father's Day. "The blocks (and cat print fabrics) are so old, that I’m calling them ‘vintage’! Had so much fun turning these traditional quilt blocks into a modern lap quilt. Hubby and our cat, Libby, both love it."
As for me, Leslie, I've been making receiving blankets for a nephew and his wife who are expecting their first baby. I told her I'd set her up with all the blankets she'll need and a quilt is next! This also gave me a chance to FINALLY use some of the decorative stitches on my machine that I bought two years ago. (Psssst....I should've taken that training class.)
