I am waiting on some more of the turquoise dot but am working on getting the blocks together. Some people would cringe at the thought of more chevrons but I like this layout and they won't be a problem! Right now I am thinking a small inner border (TBD), my inspiration fabric and then brown binding.
Next are the first finishes for 2018.
I live in Minnesota. I am a Vikings Fan. I have endured the days of old when they made it to the Super Bowl but never won. They have made it to the Divisional Champions spot this year. The Super Bowl is being held in Minnesota this year. Without screaming, I am being cautiously optimistic. BUT....I did feel it was time to finish this. Just in case they make history and win the Super Bowl in their home state which has never been done before. One SB win for them in my lifetime, please.
And this got quilted and bound.
It is the "Children's Library" BOM from Pat Sloan, free on her page. My version anyway. I did it mostly in "Little House on the Prairie" fabric that I had in stash. It will be gifted to a young girl, along with the book, who joined the family through marriage this past year. I hope her Bonus Mom and she will read it together as my daughter and I did at about the same age.
And this is finished. A 60th birthday present for a dear friend, "Dapper Dan" made from 2 charm packs(minus the pinks) of shirtings and suitings. Hope it keeps him warm.
And last but not least. My MIL stayed with us over Christmas. She saw my basket of quilts waiting to have binding made and applied. Now, I have offered to make her a quilt over the years but she has always declined. I did finish one for her that she had cut out years ago, an Irish Chain, turned out beautiful but she has never used it. It sits in her linen closet carefully wrapped. We went through the basket and she picked this one and wanted to hand sew the binding herself. Ribbon Star Block. I told her I would bring it to her the next week with the binding applied. I did.
I really hated to see this one go as the FQ Stack came from a very dear friend but I guess if it made someone happy and she promised me she would use it, then it was time for it to go.
And the current afternoon delight is:
Pat Sloan's "Lets Go Camping" BOM #1, again on her web page.
Not bad, considering it is only the 11th.
