The KC Modern Quilt Guild's recent retreat was a marathon of sewing....I love it so! We began on Friday afternoon and kept sewing until Sunday around 2 p.m., with a few breaks for eating and sleeping...some more than others! I managed to get quite a bit accomplished, which is nice since I haven't sewn a stitch in the 10 days since!
Here's a taste of the Batman quilt that I started for one of my grandsons. I'm surprising myself as to how much I'm liking the way it is falling together! Somehow it reminds me of comic book pages....Besides sewing up a couple more Farmer's Wife blocks, I also stitched together my recent leader/ender blocks into a pretty lap quilt top for charity. I'd really like to get it quilted by next week, if I can, so that it can travel to Nepal with my son for a child there.
My quickest and most fun project was making this jelly roll quilt as a "test" top for the
1600 Inch Race that my other quilt guild, The Blue Valley Quilters, is having at their Day Retreat in May. I used two strips each of all 20 new Flea Market Fancy fabrics to create this simple top...
Because you don't preplan the fabric placement, the colors appear very randomly across the quilt top. It probably took me around 2 hours from start to finish to make this quilt top. It will be fun to see how fast the actual "race" is finished when we have it next month.Stop by tomorrow to see my Farmer's Wife blocks. See you then!
