Last Sunday, during my Virtual Quilt Retreat, I finished up the 6-1/2″ signature squares for my block. Woohoo!
Yesterday, with the exception of the borders, I finished piecing Son’s Falling Charms quilt. I have an additional 2 rows pieced that will go into the backing, plus another 4 blocks that will go into the border. I have it folded up and stashed away to take to work with me on Tuesday so I can put it up for a photo-op, and pick out border and backing fabrics, and grab some batting. I have a feeling I’ll continue with the plain black, though. I’ll share the photo Tuesday or Wednesday.
Then this morning, I pieced together my JMLW Caramel Corn. I have the backing and binding picked out from my stash, I just need to grab some batting on Tuesday for it as well, so the binding and backing fabric will come out of next week’s stash report. I’m not completely happy with the placement of the blocks, but this was the first time I have appliqued anything, and the blocks are on point. Two lessons in a tiny quilt. I can see myself making this one again, in a table topper size.
So between the signature squares and Son’s quilt I did rather well in the “fabric out” department this week
