Happy Thanksgiving to all my Quilty friends. I wanted to post a picture of a fall quilt I've made, but I've never made one! This is the closest I could come to that -- part of a table runner I made in 2002. The photo is a little fuzzy, and since I no longer have it, I can't take a new one. Anyway, you get the idea. Have a Blessed Day, everyone!!
In January I started on a QRC quilt and told about it in this post. Then, in February I finished quilting it and told about it in this post. I really can't remember when I got around to binding it, but I'm thinking it was sometime around August. A couple of weeks ago, f i n a l l y, I put the sleeve on it. It is finished. Whew! That was one dragged out project!
Now, at long last, I can reveal the secret - what it says and who it is for. There are several cell phone apps available for reading QRC codes. I use ScanLife.
That's right. It's for Hubby to hang in his office. And that is just what he has done. He took it to work with him yesterday.
This was a fun little quilt to make. So grateful that he appreciates it.
Just because I haven't blogged doesn't mean I haven't been getting things done. In September I made four more blocks for Josh's Zelda quilt.
and the Sword.
Then, I had other projects to work on so it sat and waited. Again. For a long time. This week was RETREAT, though, so it was time to get some serious sewing done!
I made the Map Piece...
...and the Triforce. Oops! I forgot to take a picture of that one.
Laid out on the floor it was really looking good, and I was getting excited about finishing.
Since each block was a different size, putting them together was a challenge. I divided the blocks into columns then added borders until all the blocks in each column were the same width. Next, I added sashing to make each column the same length. Finally, I added sashing between the columns and added the borders.
Now on to making the backing and quilting it. I may just finish it this year!
(I'm kind of looking forward to making something with a pattern after this so there isn't so much of that Dreaded Math involved!)
