Before I get into my normal blog stuff....
I've been getting some emails from some of you via Google Drive saying you couldn't get access to the issues of Hexie Love magazine that I made available in the tab at the top of the blog. Apparently Google changed their security setting a few months ago.
I got some help from one of my daughters this weekend and we believe we have updated our settings so that you should have regained the ability to view the old issues of Hexie Love! Yay! Please let me know if you have any further issues like this.
And now on to the quilt top finishes! I finished Casserole, made as a twin size.
I really enjoyed making this pattern. It was so much fun to pull colors from my stash for each block.
I pieced the backing from this fabric - this has been in my stash for years. I made curtains from this fabric (Amy Butler, I think?) for our younger daughter's dorm room when she was a freshman at Furman University. The curtains covered the closet space. I have saved the curtains all these years and I'm now using them in quilt backings. Though there was also some of this used in the front of the Casserole quilt, too.
CHEDDAR BOW TIES!!!!! I've been working on this FOREVER! I think I started it at the very beginning of the Pandemic. So I guess this is my Covid quilt? It measures at 72" x 72".
Though I loved making this one, I was ready for it to be done. And it is!
I'm trying to use up some random yardage from my stash. I pulled several pieces of colorful pieces and pieced them together for a Franken-backing.
Won't this one be fun with these ladies dancing across the back of the quilt?
And these animals! Another fun piece for the backing.
And that's my report for this week! I can't believe I have finished FOUR quilt tops so far this year. Almost all of the sewing has been done on weekends.
I still have UFO's that need attention, so those will be next on my list. I'm really trying to finish some things before I start more. Stay tuned.
Continue to stay safe!!! And pray for Ukraine and the rest of the world...
