Aye Yi Yi! BOM - another top finished from the ufo's in the stash acquisition. 9 blocks were done, all were different sizes! There was 1" total difference from smallest to largest... I went ahead and finished the other 3, found some 'close' fabric I could use for the setting triangles, the sashing and the borders. Far, far from great but better done than living in the pizza box!
Here's some images for more thought - Yes I now like curvy!
I was doing the bottom one as a mock up for a real quilt I'm going to be
making and needed to confirm I was 'good' with the process... I think
I'll be finishing out this colorway with a different layout!
A while back, I purchased an older quilter's stash. With that purchase, there were some blocks stored in pizza boxes. I have no idea how old these are, but I know they were all pre 2000.
I'm working on piecing the tops from the blocks -
1. "Best Friends" Paper Pieced, probably a block exchange. 8" square blocks finished. I added sashing, cornerstones, the 2 small borders. I think it's a pretty quilt.
I have a pretty good idea what I want to do for quilting and it's probably NOT what you're thinking!
2. Bow Tie - Another block exchange. This one did have some labels on some of the blocks. Shame on me though, I didn't make note of them. Interesting the different techniques to make this block. Interesting also the variance in sizes of the blocks. Turned out to be pretty cute and I'm not a scrappy fan!
And I have a couple of ideas for the quilting on this one too! Oh, and my favorite fabric in this quilt --
Isn't that cute!
3. Civil War Sampler - I don't know much about these types of quilts.
I have no idea if I've mixed things up or not. BUT it's no longer living in a pizza box and now can be enjoyed by some!
Probably going to do some block specific quilting, maybe some feathers...
Do you ever see a quilt and just know you need to try it? That's what happened here!
Took less than 2 days for the top. About 1/2 of a layercake of the blues and I hand cut the 10" square of the white. There's a youTube video for this one out there...check it out!
This is my final quilt of 2014.
