I've sorted my finishes into years. This helps me have a better record of my accomplishments and it makes it easier for my readers too so you don't have to scroll through endless photos without a break. I've also revamped my UFO page and added some new works in progress (I like that term better than UFO).
I've also done some hand sewing. I sewed binding on my Winter Solstice quilt ...
I won't be able to get fully finished pictures until I'm more mobile, but for now you get the idea.
I've also added hanging sleeves to my three quilt entries for our Victoria Quilters' Guild quilt show coming up in May
|Amish Block Party|
and...I've done some hand quilting on my Irish Chain.
And while I was searching for pictures to add to the blog, I came across these design wall pictures of "guesses" for blocks on the Celtic Solstice mystery quilt. Some of us were filling in time guessing on blocks waiting for the next clue on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville blog. I was totally wrong but it was fun playing and these may actually become future quilts for me.
So first here are Bonnie's blocks in my colours which were the blocks used in my quilt.
And here are some of my guesses. Firstly I cut my four patches from the wrong fabrics (dark blue and brown). Then I thought my colours might be too dark so I played with introducing a light blue in the four patches. Then I realized what I had done and decided to stay with the rust and dark brown which were the correct colours according to my substitutions of Bonnie's colours.
|Looks like a Celtic cross to me! Maybe I'm on to something!|
|It kinda resembles one of the tiles that Bonnie photographed and put on her blog. But it's really dark.|
|Maybe it looks like tile...or maybe not.|
|These look really good from far away and they are on point and look like Celtic crosses. Maybe...|
So there you go. Spring cleaning is done. I hope you enjoy the new look.
Until next time,
