What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

I found this heart block used in sashing on FB's applique group and felt it was very appropriate since this is for my daughter.  I haven't decided how far they will go, probably not all the way to the edge and definitely not all the way around.  I'm getting excited to start quilting on this.  There's a chance it might be done in time for Christmas.

I am really enjoying the "evolution" of this quilt you are creating for your daughter.  Love the color scheme and I am going to be a "monkey see, monkey do" with the next project I tackle and use your muted red and beige tones on a foundation piecing project I have in mind.

Thanks for the inspiration you have given me as you dazzle with your lovely project.

Love the newest heart border. You really are making amazing progress and your daughter will be over the moon!

It is always fun to see how we get inspired and spring new project off each other. For me with Dee's project it is the beautiful applique in the middle. I have really gotten into my applique again this year in  big way.

thanks Judy.  Love taking you guys "along for the ride" so to speak.  The colors aren't my usual, and it's been fun to work with fabrics I would not normally have purchased.  But getting them all in a group inspired me to try something different and I have really enjoyed it.  Something about that pink plaid is just comfortable, which is saying a lot as I have never been fond of pink.  I did have to purchase some additional beige as there were only some qtr yds of those in the batch but fortunately my friend had told me the fabric line name and my LQS still carries it.  (French General by Moda).  The grayish beige they had isn't absolutely perfect match but close enough for a scrappy quilt.  It has kind of a vague linen look too it that is nice.  Not sure if you can tell from the picture, but there are a lot of nice texture in the fabrics.  the plaid is woven and soft.

thanks Ami.  I'm even excited about the quilting - not usual for me.  Also thinking about adding some embroidery in the border instead of a label.  Marion has seen me working on it and I've shown her pictures so it won't be a surprise.  But I know she will appreciate it.  Her apartment has so many quilts you'd think she was a quilter.  She has told me people have asked about the one hanging over her sofa as it's in all her zoom class pictures - very bright and distinctive.  She has a real sofa now instead of the futon below, a big overstuffed gray sofa, this quilt will look nice wadded up on it since she rarely folds anything - ha

Christmas 2021?  :-)

I think it is really a great idea to make sure Marion has approved of the quilt. I do that with my girls too. I would rather know they are excited about something they know I am making for them than find they don't care for something I would make as a surprise.

Sarah has helped herself to quite a few quilts. When I see them in her house I am very glad she loves them and uses them.

Well for any of the rest of us 2021. For Dee I bet it done way ahead of Christmas 2020

nope, the one in 6 weeks.  The top will probably be finished before I go to bed tonight and on the frame tomorrow.     maybe blush  I might wait until after Thanksgiving because we have house guests that will be using that room and I can't leave a loaded quilt on the frame - not enough room to squeeze by to the bathroom.
