Today was the London Friendship Quilters' Guild "Quilt 'til You Wilt". Karen and I were keeners and arrived just before 8am to set up our sewing machines. Karen worked on Indian Orange Peel arcs all day and managed to make a lot of progress finishing 30 arcs bringing her total to 80! She has started another 20 so soon will be at the 100 mark!
I worked on my Blue Ridge Beauty blocks and got quite a few done. I think I will make this quilt queen size so I still have more blocks to make. The pattern is by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.com.
I have bits and pieces of every blue fabric I have ever owned in this quilt!
I decided to start a new project this afternoon. I have been intrigued by Tonya Ricucci's free pieced letters so I tried out a few from some food fabric that I have in my stash.
My husband gave me Gwen Marston's Liberated Quilts II book for Christmas so I made some liberated baskets to go with my FRESH letters. I think there needs to be some borders between the FRESH part and the baskets so I will have to see what I can come up with.
This project made me hungry! Luckily, we were well fed all day! (and we did not have to do the dishes!)
I also pieced my block for the next Elgin Piecemakers' guild Chemo Quilt.
