All 54 base-level blocks of it are pieced. Gasp. Pant, wheeze. It was my first attempt at paper piecing and I'm really pleased with the results.
I also assembled one "test" Star just to see how it looked; in the future I have 5 more red stars and 16 cream half-stars to make. (see what the finished quilt will be)
And then it's on to learning to applique for the embellishments.
Partially Quilted! - Basket of Joy
Originally I was going to shelve this one 'till May when my Brother-in-Law returned from a deployment in Iraq since his daughter is the recipient, but then we got good news: he might be coming home early! So I dug this out of the "waiting to be quilted" drawer of my stash (it was already basted) and frantically started quilting it:
In case you can't tell from the photo, it's going pretty quickly, and I am probably about halfway done. I am using a design from Eva Larkin's Free Motion Quilting Made easy for the blocks,
and I still need to figure out what I want to do for the triangles around the edges. Any suggestions would be welcome
I am hoping to have this quilted and ready to for binding by the end of Thanksgiving weekend.
