This is a sweet little wall hanging using a pattern and a technique by Erin Russek. I actually quilted this one in early summer but just bound it a couple of weeks ago. The hanging sleeve needs to be hand stitched down on one edge and it will be DONE! If there is a wall hanging category I might submit this one.
MODA Modern Workshop jellyroll quilt. This one was started late winter/spring of 2011 with a jellyroll and a charm pack and a little more ambition than time allowed for. I designed the border using the flower motif in the fabric line and spent the first summer hand appliqueing the long borders and this past summer doing the short ones (both of which, ironically, have the same number of repeats in them). This one needs a back (see DWM post from two days ago) and to be quilted and is one that I want to submit to the show.
This New York Beauty top still needs some bordering or something to finish it off. I would love to submit this one to the show but it needs work and to decide if it is a large wall hanging or something else.
The last one is my crumb quilt that would be such a great addition to the show that I just can't NOT finish it. The show's theme this time is about making do with what you have and all the fabrics in this one were scraps or already in the stash - some of them decades old - a perfect fit for the theme. It needs a back and to be quilted.
So, clearly I have some work cut out for me. Of course there is lots more as well... most of it looks something like this...
I may take some time to prep another applique bird block so I have something to work on while waiting at kid lessons, but I think the rest of these will languish a while longer, along with the other three or four (dozen) I have stashed away in drawers. So many quilts and only one lifetime!
