A Quilt Top is finished

Area One Mystery quilt. Celestial something or other

 

I’ve had the inner top done for a while and all I needed to do was add the borders. I emailed my LQS during our shelter in place and with their help picked three options. I narrowed it down to two once I laid them down together physically. I love it. I am not sure how many tops I have in my quilt queue now but it’s getting up there. I think I’m at 6… three of which have backings already and all I have to do is prep the batting. I know I still need to piece the backing for this one but this is the last one in queue so I have time. I need to get going on quilting them but haven’t the desire. I may not have the desire to quilt quilt for awhile. With everything going on I just don’t have the mental capacity for the Q20 right now. I hope it changes soon. I know that my creative flows change through time and when the desire hits me I’ll ride that wave.

Always, stay safe,

Area One

So I’ve been calling my new project pulled from the 2012 SoCal Quilters’ Run, Area One.  I like it and it’s so much easier than saying 2012 SoCal Quilters Run Mystery Quilt from Area One.  That’s so long!  Anyway, I was working on a second kit – pulled in no real order other than it was the first one I grabbed from the plastic bin that holds all things Area One. The blocks took FOREVER!  It’s because I had to make 8 blocks and there were a lot of piecing in each block.  There was a lot of cutting too, and pressing.  But they’re done now and here they are!

I haven’t pressed it yet.  I’ll do that another time.  In the meantime, here are all the blocks done so far all laid out.

It’s a mystery quilt so I just laid it out willy nilly.  It was in 2012 so I do have the reveal.  And I know what it looks like when it will be all done but what’s the fun in that?  The picture I have is in black and white and does not do the real colorful versions anyway.  So, here they are for now and we can enjoy the mystery while I work on each clue. 🙂

Have a crafty day!
