As many of you know, I have been rising before the crack of dawn and squeezing in an hour or so of PQP. It is definitely easier than I thought, despite Daylight Savings Time, and makes the start of my day special. Sewww, I thought you would like to see the results of two weeks of a daily dose of PQP!
These two quilts are for Valentine's Day! Ooops!! Well, the one with the hearts was done just a couple of days after the actual day and is hanging in my sewing room. The hearts are string pieced and the two baskets were from a Moda panel that included the two flower blocks in the other quilt and six Valentine postcards which I assembled and mailed BEFORE VALENTINE'S DAY!!
I am showing you a close up of one of the blocks for what I call the FLOWER POWER quilt. I hope you can see the glittery effect. I am in love with Art Glitter and have been using it profusely. In fact, when I was putting it on this quilt, my kitty, Bailey, jumped up on the table and he was glittered also!! I started quilting this one today and should finish it tomorrow. The sleeve, label, and binding are already made. (I find if I don't do those two bits beforehand it can definitely hold up the completion of a quilt)
This next picture is of the thirteen pillowcase parts cut for our service project for the Hole in the Wall Gang. We were supposed to meet and put them together but it had to be postponed due to SNOW. The four little pincushion hats sans their ribbons are the favors we are making for our Victorian Tea to be held in April. This is the second time we have hosted a Tea and it is a big fundraiser for our guild.
This little quilt is going to be for our silent auction which will be held as part of our Victorian Tea. I started this project some time ago. I didn't have an intended recipient for it so it seems a good candidate. I will finish the crazy quilting on it, add some borders and send it on its way.
This next picture is the snowball and friendship star blocks each of us are making for the Relay for Life quilt the guild is donating. It is a local walk for cancer and all survivors are encouraged to sign the blocks. This takes place in June and many of our members participate and help coordinate this event.
I also completed my February journal page but I haven't taken a picture of it yet. Will post later this week.
Now that I have some of these guild commitments done, I hope to concentrate on a queen size quilt for my bed for the spring/summer and get some samples made for a couple of classes I will be teaching at the LQS.
