It's been a very busy summer! Between dodging thunderstorms and weeding and mowing when it's NOT raining and storming - even lost one of my primary notebooks during one of our recent lightning storms, managed to get a few projects started and even finished.
First is a patriotic quilt top one of our Volunteer Members of our East Central IL QOV Group, Doris, started the interior, we added borders and readied for quilting:
|A Doris original - ready to be quilted into a QOV!|
This 'surprise' quilt is currently on the frame, almost finished! This is a wedding/anniversary quilt for a very special bride & groom...and it's a Surprise! So, you won't get to see the BIG reveal until 'after' it's been presented ;-)
|Just a 'peak' of this Surprise quilt ;-)|
Once this quilt is off the frame, a very special T-shirt quilt will take its place asap, since the intended starts college in less than 2 weeks...yikes!
LOTS of piecing of quilt tops and Mystery Quilt(s) are currently in various stages of progress:
|Marathon of strip-piecing|
|ALL the piecing paid off...|
|Enough blocks and panels to create at least TEN (10) patriotic quilts for our Vets!|
...and a few embroidered Eagle blocks thrown in for good measure ;-)
|We need a few more to begin assembly!|
Plenty of quilt tops are ready and awaiting to be ALL bordered out - here's a few we are working on:
|Borders cut for nine (9) quilt tops, three (3) borders per top = 27 borders!|
And the final clue to this Patriotic Mystery has just been released!
|Patriotic Mystery ready to be finished - hopefully over the weekend...|
Time to sew & quilt!
