I have the second Star Wars quilt basted and ready to quilt. I am hoping to have it quilted by Saturday evening so I can finish the binding at the guild meeting Sunday morning. Of course, if I finish it sooner, all the better!
I decided to make a Turning Twenty quilt (in twin size) out of a FQ bundle I bought a while ago. I was originally going to use these FQs for a quilt for my bed, but I really like Faceted Jewels and don’t see me wanting to take it off the bed for a while. The soft aqua color is just the right shade for the Wellspring Living recovery house, and I’m happy to contribute a 3rd quilt to them. Here’s the blocks ready to be sewn into a top. I bought some yardage of Kona solids in an aqua and chocolate when I was planning a king-size quilt, so I think that will be the border.
I am also piecing scrappy bits together for that mystery scrappy project (still working on the gold bits – halfway done with the remainder, so only 72 more to go!). I’m treating those as leaders & enders where I can, so I’ll get some more done while piecing the Turning 20 quilt.
I also recently finished the two Saturday Sampler blocks for September. This is the ninth Memories of Provence block – more craziness with some of this piecing, but it turned out okay. Since I picked up the finishing kit last week, I also cut up the borders and got those prepped and ready. These blocks are being set on point, so I’ve gotten 6 of the 8 diagonal rows complete with the blocks I’ve made so far (there are filler blocks as well). Once I show this block next month, I can piece the 7th row. Huzzah!
And here is the Going Coastal block for September.
