I’ve joined another quilt-along, this time with Amandajean at Crazy Mom Quilts. This one is to make a colourful 9-patch top. Photos of the model with crisp white sashing are on her blog. We are supposed to make one block a day and finish it up by summertime. I haven’t started yet, but I have chosen some fabrics from stash that I would like to use up. Instead of white sashing, mine is going to have bright green sashing.
I am also working on the Ice Cream Social at Hugs, Melinda‘s blog and made this little drawing of my mini-quilt-to-be. I don’t have fancy quilting software, so this is actually a colouring book-type page with Friendship Stars that have been coloured in to look like ice cream cones. My colour is chocolate, and I can use two other colours as well. My blocks are going to be set on a twist, using Mary Johnson‘s instructions for Twisted Happy Blocks, and my little quilt will be 22.5 inches square when finished.
And, I am continuing with my blue-and-yellow interpretation of Judy Laquidara’s latest Stash Quilt Project. Step 3 of the instructions was posted yesterday, and the previous steps are also available on Judy’s blog.
I am trying to use up as much of my stash as possible this year, and it’s really good fun to participate in these quilting projects. I love the fellowship with other quilters and getting the chance to chat with new friends about our progress.
