I finished the Everything Old is New Again top, then used the remaining charm squares to piece a strip for the back. It’s loaded on the frame to be quilted but I don’t have any white quilting thread! It was all ready to go yesterday, but of course the quilt shop was closed on Easter. Mom’s going to pick up some thread today and I’ll quilt it tonight. Fortunately, Mom ENJOYS doing the binding so it should be finished for Wednesday’s quilt guild.
It’s made with charm packs and a little yardage. I used Sultry by basicgrey from Moda. I love the pink and green and brown combination. It’s girly but modern. Mom found a charm pack that she loved, also by Moda – Northern Solitude by Holly Taylor. She finished her quilt first (of course).
Isn’t it gorgeous? And speaking of gorgeous Mom quilts, here’s her finished Family Star BOM:
She’s the only one of us who has actually finished. I love how it turned out. When all five are done I’ll post them together so you can see how different they look, even though we did the same blocks.
Then last night on a whim (as usual) I experimented with a zigzag quilt technique that I found on the Bee Square Blog by Crazy Mom Quilts (CMQ is of my favorite blogs, by the way – she has the best tutorials). I used some leftover white from my Everything Old quilt, and did a miniature version. I tried pressing the seam open and I was pleased with how it turned out.
And yes, I know I wasn’t supposed to start another project. Hmmph.
