Multiple Projects


What a fun day I have had. A little quilting:




this is Ode To Flavin - started after Flavin Glover was a teacher at my LQG in 2007.













I also added some double 9 patch blocks to the Rolling Star Block. I still have several more of each to go but we are on our way.










This is a new project. I am part of the Calendar Quilt Challenge and this is my start. The challenge is to add a strip a day for the entire year and it will eventually be a coin quilt, something I have never done.










and a little crafting: I took an old lamp and made it beautiful......

  5. Hi Gari,
    Thanks for coming to visit my blog- it is nice to meet new quilters.
    I have made a few coin quilts- there is a star one posted in one of my earlier posts that I made for a wedding gift. I think it is a cool idea to add a strip a day - You should certainly get more than one quilt out of it. Are you making it from a pattern or will it be designed as you go?
    It sounds like you are having lots of fun with your machines- I have limited space but enjoy the Babylock machine very much. I will look forward to visiting your blog again.
    Regards,
    Anna

  8. A calendar quilt...will be looking forward to seeing that one. You did a great job on the lamp. Isn't it fun to be retired and do what you want to more or less? I don't miss working either.
