Just jumping in here. Haven't been on the the forum on any kind of a regular basis for a few years. Glad to see some familiar faces still hanging out. I am currently working on 13 quilts for some co-workers. Two started out as just because gifts for the ladies in the office, then it grew to two more for the retirees, then I said, oh what the heck, I'll just make everyone a quilt. Couple of people later, I have settled on 13. 4 1/2 of which are done, four presented, one (the 1/2 of the 4 1/2) I decided to keep for myself and will have to remake for the original recipient. The colors match my bedroom so I decided I am going to add some more borders to it to make it fit my bed then keep it.
This weekend, I finished up #6, started #7 and #8. Replacement fabric for number #7 (Pink Floyd) will be in this week and then it should go rather quickly. I'm ready for the borders and some applique on #8 (Pokémon - yes its for an adult . . . it's what his dad gave me as an idea for him for so that's what he's getting . . .lol) then I can work on to the rest. But anyway, not your traditional style of quilt but for a huge Grateful Dead fan so here is the one I just finished (this picture doesn't have the final black border around it) and as I make more progress on #7 & #8, I will post pictures of them too. The rest of the quilts will follow a more traditional pieced style of quilting. And I'm ready for a break from applique.
You are most welcome. Hopefully you enjoy making this pattern. I have made it 4 times and am already planning more.
Wow 13 quilts. Sounds like you have been making good progress. I bet the recipients are excited.
What fun! That's a lot of miles to drive.
safe travels to you
13 quilts? That's ambitious. You must have some really nice coworkers to make specialized quilts for them.
Dont know how to post pictures, but my wife and I each made this quilt. She used three values of blues, and I did a one color purple. We set at the kitchen table most mornings looking through our Iipad and mac for (sometimes) hours and when we see a pattern we want I can spend sometimes hours finding the pattern. We had a quilt business for 40 years, so we cant give up the urge to make every quilt that catches our eye.
Thank You.. It's been a ball. If I was having any more fun I'd be arrested...lol
Started working on the Pink Floyd quilt again this evening and after the taking a picture and getting it cropped to post, I realized that my prism is lower than it is supposed to be so now I am going to trim off the top and add a section to the bottom to raise it up. This is the center of the quilt and partially represents the recipient’s favorite albums.
I do have some wonderful coworkers that and I don’t make much for myself so I make for others…just because. It’s keeps me busy and off the computer and away from the tv!
