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,

Scrapitude – I finished clue #4 just in time.  The final clue is being released this coming Tuesday, 5/12/2015.  Here’s how it looks so far with all the blocks on the design wall:

This weekend is Mother’s Day weekend and I’m attending a workshop with Annie Smith!  I’m so excited I’m dancing!  And…

I think I found my next mystery QAL.  I found it from Quilt Block of the Month and she does a great job of posting free BOMs she finds on the web.  This BOM is perfect for my schedule since Scrapitude will be done this month and I love being part of a mystery QAL.  This one starts in June and will continue until March 2016.  So this will be a new project I will start.  I checked out the previous QAL and I liked how it looks so I’m hoping this next one is just as nice.  Hopefully I can use my scraps like I was able to with Scrapitude but if not, that’s okay.  I have a lot of fabric to use up. 🙂

Happy Quilting everyone!
