My third quilt of 11 for 2011 is complete.
I named this quilt "Tumbling Blocks", and is going to a sweet preemie as part of the Robert Kaufmann Charm Pack Challenge. My hope is that this quilt will follow a babe from her infancy up to when she will be able to stack those blocks as a toddler.
I was able to catch a quick visit with Natalie, who leads the NOVA Modern Quilt Guild, and was able to pass it to her today in the nick of time for the deadline. In true form, I was trimming the last few threads last night, all the while wondering how I can organize my time better.
With the last block I pieced a courthouse step for the back of the quilt, using a remnant of a Japanese fabric that I have so little of. But who else but a babe deserves the best of wishes, to include precious fabric.
I stippled the center of the quilt, and added hearts (wow - was I rusty!), and scalloped the borders. I have decided that I love scallops! Now, how to get them even is another story.
I have put away Freida for the weekend...I think she needs a little bit of a breather from the pressure I put her through this last week. But Monday, I plan to start on our upper hallway quilt! While organizing last week, I came upon 2 sets of charm packs, and I am excited to use them up.
I hope you all had a great Friday!
