So I had 4 projects on my list this round. First up was Hopscotch. I had half the blocks made, and an appointment with my long-arm quilter.
I'm probably as proud of this project as any of late, pleased that I was able to come up with my own interesting design, loving the contrasting palest of gray borders (Pearl by Northcott Colorworks), and succeeding (not without frustration!) some angled matched binding. This mini was downright fun.
Also on my FAL list was pulling my Solstice Star blocks out and finishing them into a quilt.
The Stars of Summer. (Click on the title to see more photo-shoot pictures; go here for a tutorial on the matched binding.)
Last on my list, and I knew it would be a stretch . . . was taking my 4x5 blocks and making a quilt out of them. At the time, I had 12 blocks, and was in the process of receiving blocks from the third round of the 4x5 modern Quilt Bee.
and made 2 more to bring my number of blocks to 20 . . .
I am making great progress on this project, but it's definitely not a quilt yet. Remember this debate? Well, I've made a decision and am currently framing all of these colorful, modern blocks.
I'll be linking my finished projects up to the Finish-A-Long Second Quarter Linky Party!
