My internet connection has been down for the past several days so I have had plenty of time to play catch-up on all my unfinished projects. First, and most importantly to me, is finishing my Independence Park quilt. I have never had a quilt take me as long as this one has, but then again I have had a lot going on in my professional and private life over the last year and a half. I am anxious to get it done though, so I have been devoting more time to it. Out of 42 block, I am now on # 34, hopefully I will be able to finish this block today.
It takes me 2 days (3 hrs each day) to complete one block and the accompanying sashing. My goal is to have the last 7 block completed within 2 weeks.
What I have finished is the Hungarian Posies table runner…finally. I love this block and I love the way the table topper turned out, but I am finished with machine quilting for a while. To say that I hate machine quilting is an understatement. I do not dislike the act of machine quilting, but rather the results that it produces. Even on large professional machines, I rarely like the end results, so I am going to put important pieces aside until I can hand quilt them.
I have also added two more Dutch Windmill blocks to my So Scrappy quilt along, even though they are the colors from 2 months ago…
…and the Crossroads blocks, including this months Orange.
Happy Creating Everyone!!
