Wow, some progress actually made today…
I stitched up 5 Block Lotto Blocks for January which I can’t actually show you until January. However, my daughter has already been eyeing them and really likes them. She thought they needed to be made into a big quilt.
I made some progress on the first of the graduation quilts.
First of all, in true quilter fashion, I did a double seam when sewing on the corners so that I could have bonus half square triangles. I just did one of these to make sure I had the sizes correct. I still have to cut out more white squares and sew them on.
Here is the beginnings of the quilt along with the bonus square that may not be used in this quilt. I am going with this simple pattern with a big red border to match the colors of the college the graduate will be attending in the fall. Cherry & Silver along with black and white! Go LOBOS! I may have to audition a red sashing to see if I like it better than the above layout. It looks awfully gray right now.
I also made the first LONG seam on the jelly roll race that will either be the backing for the above quilt or will be a separate quilt. I may opt for a nice soft flannel for the graduate’s backing. Not sure yet. I don’t think these colors are appropriate for the second graduation quilt I need to make though…
Now I am off to take my mom and her little dachshund to the vet. Then I HAVE to do grocery shopping so this is probably all the sewing progress for today. Maybe some crochet time later.
