I finished this QOV this week. I love it. This is a one block quilt.
When I had the blocks on the floor trying to lay out the design Bill comes in and as nicely as he can tells me I somehow messed up the pattern. Apparently, he likes his quilts to be symmetrical. He also thinks that everyone else who sees the quilt will think I messed up the design. Did I? I even showed him many quilts online that were also off center, Nope, couldn't convince him to like it.
I needed to start and finish a quilt really fast - 2 days at the most. I just wanted a fast finish as the UFO I
am going to work on this month will take awhile to finish. This next quilt accomplished that need. Started Thursday and finished it on Friday. I used Moda's Puzzle Pieces and Kona white. This is a great donation quilt. Do you ever just feel the need?????
I am still pinning and sewing the apple core blocks. I pin until I run out of pins and then I sew the blocks together and repeat. I am only working on these blocks two evenings a week. I figure I will be putting in about 10,000 pins before this top is finished.
My goals for 2012 are simple~
1 - make one QOV each month.
2 - make one quilt for Ronald McDonald House each month
3 - finish one already started quilt each month (have about 20 of these, some more than 3 years old)
4 - if I complete the above 3 goals each month I can start one new quilt
I am doing pretty good on goals 1 and 2, not so good on #3. Any finished quilt is always a plus.
