A finish! Glam Clam

Glam Clam
Finished Top
1/13/2020

Two tops done in a week! I was so close to finishing Glam Clam that I powered through that last row.  Now I’ve added to my quilt queue.  I will be getting a lot of practice whenever by Q20 chooses to arrive.

My next project is scrappy stars from 2015.  Here’s the page that I started back then. For those who do not want to go to that page, the short story is that it was a mystery quilt by Charlotte Hawkes from 2016 with cutting instructions provided in the fall of 2015.  She gives you all the cutting instructions so when she releases the first clue in January all you have to do is piece them all together.  She releases the clues each month and I think after about 5 clues you have the finale.  I like having the cutting instructions first and being able to piece piece piece to your hearts content.  I’m somewhere in the middle of clue 3.  Just like all my other projects I’ve been working on this a bit at a time at retreats and between other projects.  I’m pretty sure this will take me much longer to complete than Glam Clam although I am at the point where I’m starting to put the blocks together.  I’ll be posting pictures when I pull that project box out to play.

A finish! Good Fortune

Good Fortune
Top is done!

Okay, it’s not really a finish but the top is done and we all can celebrate!  I’m debating on what to do for the back, whether to do the back now or wait until later. I’m pretty sure I have 2 tops with their backs and batting ready to be basted and quilted.  But I recently gifted myself a Q20 and I’m patiently waiting for it to arrive.  So, there’s no rush to do the back now.  I can simply put this aside and put a few more rows on Glam Clam. and maybe even finish the top… 🙂
