I promised that I would share some of my progress after a weekend away at a wonderful B & B north of Evansburg, AB. Rustic Ridge Ranch. It was a really awesome time, with some fantastic friends.
I brought 4 different quilting projects with me, and one knitting project. I will take pictures of the knitting project later – but as a side note, I love the yarn I am using.
So I brought a table runner to finish that I had started a year ago. Well, I didn’t finish it. I realized when I got everything laid out, I hadn’t made enough copies of part of the pattern I needed to cut some things out.
Two of the other quilting projects I brought were all block exchanges for 2 different quilts. I was considering laying one of them out, but I knew I wouldn’tget very far at either of them. So, I will have to find another large floor to lay them all out on to figure out the rows.
I did bring along the quilt that I was showing in a previous post the pattern and the fabrics.
I tend to usually assembly line my quilting. I will do a bunch of sewing. Then I will go and press. The back for trimming and more sewing. As I was with some friends, I was quite excited to see how the blocks are going to start looking so I deviated from my system a bit. I actually am finishing that it is a bit chaotic now with my project. I am at a few different spots with several blocks. It may take me some time to “recover” my system, but it was worth seeing some of the colour.
All in all, I am really excited about the colour. I think It will be really fun.
What do you think?
