Bang Bang Bang
There! One simple binary change and I give myself an additional 12 months to complete this "challenge".
Wonder where I went? Yeah, I know the feeling. But back I am and with it, I bring 2 completed quilt-tops.
This is the Blue Gold quilt and I finished it in November, I think. After I had competed the last block, I was eager to see what it would end up looking like. I was concerned that any outer border was going to work against or not hold up against the boldness of those blocks but as I restricted myself to using what I had in my stash, this is the one I went with.
Now that several months have passed and I have distanced myself considerably, I can look at it and feel over-all: Pleased. I will choose backing fabric at the shop Thursday and flip it on the machine for quilting.
Now I have also finished the Christmas fabric quilt but cannot find the photo in my harddrive ... check back later for a shot.
At the moment, I am assembling the Red White and Blue and this one will have only a single outer border and no cornerstones. The Dark Blue sashing really sets off the blocks. It is simple and will be heavily quilted.
I have had to buy more fabric to finish the Oriental. I needed a fabric for the outer borders and sashing. Again, the blocks are all so different yet "asian", I could not not find a fabric to tie it all together and it just didn't exist in the stash.
After that, I will return to the final two, the Brights. I still have 6 blocks each to make for them and lots of fabric to choose from so I want a real clear head and workspace before I tackle that. They are so loud and busy I doubt whoever ends up with them will get any peaceful rest under them.
