Thank you to everyone who visited my blog during the recent blog hop. I had so much fun looking at all the other quilts! Such creativity and talent! If you are new to my blog, I hope you visit often and also like my Facebook Page (Snug Harbor Quilts) and follow me on Instagram (@snugharborquilts)!
GranChris, who was comment #21 on my blog, is the winner of the pdf copy of the whole Turnabout Patchwork book. I am going to make another quilt from the book soon! Congrats, Chris, I hope you enjoy it!
I can now turn my attention to other projects. One of my first 2019 "to do" projects was to finish the center portion of the spider web quilt I have been working on for years for my husband. TaDa! The center is DONE!I love it, and he loves it. Now I need to settle on a border, and get that done, but I feel great that this part is completed. It was 240 paper foundation triangles. I sewed two together to make a square, then removed the paper before sewing any further. I filled many a trash bin, at least one of which my kittens turned over!
Here is a close up of one of the sections. The fabrics are all civil war repro fabrics.I also managed to finally quilt a charity top that had been donated to one of my guilds. Pinning the quilt is one of my least favorite parts of quilting, and so I tend to put it off. I finally got it done.
I use binder clips with my craft table to get a nice taut back without having to tape anything to the floor. I quilted it with a free motion loopy loop which followed the jelly roll strips, using a dark red aurifil. It looks fine, and it is done and delivered!
I have two small projects underway for competitions late this spring, and I am going to get my On Ringo Lake quilt quilted. It is already pinned - I just need to figure out what I am doing with it! Stay tuned, in between these projects, I have lots more I want to accomplish!
My goal is to post a blog once a week, but I am finding that the studio art classes I am taking are quite challenging and time consuming, so please bear with me if I am delayed a bit on my posts!
