I got this years H2H quilt done in the nick of time. I wanted to make a scrappy rainbow quilt this year, and when I was queen bee at Stash Bee Hive 2, I asked for these blocks with this design in mind. It is so much fun to see all the different fabrics people used. There are no repeats in the bunch, which I think is amazing. I used a purple batik to bind it. This quilt will be going to Em's Happy Chemo Quilts. It is lap sized and just right for staying comfortable and cuddling.
I also had some time to play with a piece for my international robin. I can't show you much, but I did play with making one border using Gwen Marston's method of setting in narrow lines.
Can you see them? I wanted them to be subtle. These are very addicting to do.
I also had a brilliant idea about using a piece of Kaffe Fassett fabric my table mate Karen shared with me last weekend.
If you look carefully, you can see that I cut out around the two red leaves past the seam line so I could pull them out and leave them over the top of the piece I was attaching it to. I still have to stitch them down, thus the pins. I was very pleased that my idea worked. I just hope Willa is okay with my adding something on top of her center piece. It doesn't cover much, and I really like the depth it adds to the whole piece.
Tomorrow, I need to figure out how to do the next step in the other international robin piece I am working on. I am a little behind there. I also need to finish my May doll quilt and get it ready for mailing. Who knows what else will come up. I am going to just enjoy the process.
Joyful quilting, everyone.
