Firstly, Anne and I are thrilled with the number of people – that’s you Dear Peeps! – who are joining us in this challenge, and during the month I’ve had several e-mails from regular commenters saying that they took the idea to their quilt groups and whole groups are joining in. So a big “THANK YOU” to you all!!
So now, chickadees, how has your Substantial Progress gone on your nominated projects for January?
I’ve done quite well (halo shining!), me thinks.
I dragged out the nearly finished nine-patch……discovered it was a triangle quilt…….and that it needed just five seams and a press and the top was done! So from thisto this and it’s off to the quilter this week.
On my “Saigon” quilt, the centre applique is finishedthe final blocks are finishedI cut out triangles and stitched them upcarefully measured and trimmed back the appliquetrialed the look with the trianglesthen stitched them in place (I even gave it a cursory press before photographing for you!)and yesterday I started cutting out the triangles for the next border.
My MSG project has gone from this(ooh, I’ve just seen what I was going to do with the squares – hmm, like that idea!) to sorting through “bits”to placing themand all the right hand side border has been appliqued down.
Not bad for this month!
