The final border went on the Wheel Estate quilt yesterday. Now it just needs quilting and binding.
This completes my February goal for
so I'll be linking up when the time is right. I'll probably get it sandwiched for quilting before the month is out with a plan to quilt it next month. Thank goodness, it passed kitty inspection. Smitty was purrsonally very glad to see that I'd included a cat on every block.
Since I've been alluding to my next project, I'll tell you a little about it. Amy Bradley's "Campers" pattern has a lot of different applique elements that can be used to make a variety of quilts, personalized to your outdoor interests. I recently purchased this pattern created by Sher Hastings of Sher's Creative Space for a Truck Camper Mug Rug.
I was going to add some borders and make it a little larger for another small wall-hanging in the new camper. Then I noticed this "Welcome" wall-hanging option in Amy Bradley's pattern. Really, I'm only interested in the lettering at the bottom.
The lettering works out to 14 inches wide, and my wall can easily accommodate an 18-inch wall-hanging. The truck is approximately 7-8 inches wide, and that gives me room to add this tree, also from the Amy Bradley pattern.
I'm kind of excited to get started on that, and it really shouldn't take too long. That will be my next project.
For yesterday's effort, I made the next block for the Solstice Challenge quilt. Pat Sloan's block was called "Never Ending Love," and it had some appliqued hearts to celebrate Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is still almost week away, and so I'm not quite ready for that. Instead, I wanted to make a block to celebrate last week's Ground Hog's Day, and so I left off the hearts and made this block.
The ground hog fabric there in the middle was acquired from Spoonflower with this week's block in mind. By leaving off the hearts, I had a nice big space to use this rather large-scale fabric. It all worked out in the end. I have something else in mind for Valentine's Day, and so I'll work on that one when Block 9 is released next week.
Since I've been procrastinating on my housework...yes, still...I really need to get after that today. If there's some time this afternoon, I'll get to work on the truck camper wall-hanging. It's all camper-related sewing all the time right now.
