I have been on holidays for the last two weeks and am doing my best to work through some of the basket quilts. Of course I have to fit in a couple of new quilts as well, just to keep me motivated.
Number three from the basket is this Magic Tiles quilt. Some of the fabric in the quilt is year 2000 fabric. I'm fairly sure I used the fabric when it was new, so this means I pieced this top over twelve years ago. It was due to be finished.
I felt my swirl feather needed a little work, so I practiced it on this quilt.
Number four from the basket isn't so old. I made this top last October on retreat. I wanted to try a little ruler work on this one. I learned a lot, mainly that I need to mark the lines, as my left hand isn't strong enough to hold the ruler as steady as it needs to be. This is why I practice on my own quilts.
Even though it isn't perfect, I'm sure someone will love it.
The other quilts on the pile are the Sunday Morning quilt and the Noteworthy quilt, both of which I have already shown you. The quilt on the bottom of the pile is another Coma quilt that I will show when the fabric comes into the local store.
Have a great weekend everyone!
