Meanwhile, my brother Rob was here over the weekend. I cleaned my sewing room up so he could sleep in it. We had a great time, hiking, roaming around downtown, and just catching up. I had been waiting for another tall person to come and help Paul hold up the 365-challenge-inspired quilt I finished a while ago so that I could take a picture. Every time Chris comes, I forget or it's raining.
This quilt is made using all blue and green scraps which I thought would deplete my stash. Unfortunately, the bins are just as full as ever! I like that large star block which came from a tutorial at the Missouri Star site. It was easy to make - although of course Jenny Doan uses a jelly roll for hers.
I like quilting medallion quilts because you can anchor the rounds and then work on each round separately. This fits a double bed, so it did take some time to finish quilting.
I'm not sure if I'll quilt the pink batik quilt myself or send it off for quilting. Because it's a sampler, I think it will look good with an overall, edge-to-edge design. If I do quilt it myself, I think it will be easier to do in sections. Will have to wait until all the blocks are finished and I decide on a final layout.
I sent Rob home with my modern Tequilla Sunrise quilt for his office. It is always nice to reduce my stash of quilts!
