If a baker’s dozen is 13, what is a quilter’s dozen? It’s twelve, silly! Quilters know how to do math.
Anywho, I made 12 pillowcases to donate this weekend, which is just under 5% of the guild goal for the year. We’re striving for a target of 250 pillowcases, 250 placemats, and 250 quilts, and I think I can make 12 of each this year (I already have one quilt ready to turn in). Strangely, the pillowcases are the hardest for me to make since it requires a large chunk for the body, of which I have relatively limited selection. So I dug deep and had enough for a nice dozen, which are now washed and folded and tucked into the plastic bags (here they are post-wash, pre-bag).
I also made some zipped pencil pouches for the guests at my daughter’s birthday sleepover Friday night, which made a small dent, and of course, the Quiltparison quilt! I’m about halfway done with the quilting on one of the commissioned quilts, and the other is basted and ready to go. I realized I forgot to make the binding for both of them, so will tackle them as well.
I’ve also been doing some design work on the ECQG raffle quilt in EQ7, which involves playing with fabric, but is not actually in my stash. Soon I’ll start cutting and kitting those!
