Pat Sloan issued a challenge to her peeps - to finish a quilt during the Olympics - read more about it on her "Death by Quilting" website, blog, etcs:
Pat is an amazing talented, full of energy and ideas kind of person - I love her! she's such a quilt enabler!
While I'd like to be doing nothing BUT quilting, there are other obligations a quilter must attend to, and those things have taken a lot of my time this week. You know - eat, sleep, shovel snow, and sew on and sew on!
Here is what I've been working on:
These blocks are from Pat Sloan's Turkey Tracks Block Swap last October - only one of these is mine, the rest came from swap participants, who all did wonderful blocks, as you can see! I received six blocks, but only know three of the names.
I put the sashes on yesterday and then sewed the rows together and added the first red borders today. Another border will be added, and then it will be a twin/large throw size. This is an excellent way to make seven 12" blocks into a twin size quilt. The only tough part is calculating the size of those setting triangles. I'll put this one on the HQ16 to quilt it - as soon as the weather (i.e. basement!) warms up a bit.
Tomorrow is the last day of February - Are you ready for March? It comes in like a LION, remember?
