Turkey Tracks: October 6, 2015
October 2015 Quilting Update
I seem to be working on about 7 quilts–three using the 4-patch blocks I spent the summer making.
The tumbler quilt is off Lucy the longarm and is ready to be bound.
The Coastal Quilter’s 2016 challenge quilt is ready to be bound. That’s a little guy–16 inches square, with 16 pieces, and using one set of opposites on the color wheel.
The two quilts that are emerging fast though are these bright and happy darlings–both using Bonnie Hunter blocks from Quiltmaker magazine: Criss Cross and Carolina Crossing.
Carolina Chain: I saw this quilt completed on the Bonnie Hunter FB site in regular, not bright, scraps, and I loved it on sight. I’ll make this one twin size. Love the bright happy colors.
Criss Cross. I think I want to make this a medallion quilt with these blocks as the center. I’m going to go to a border of white fabric with tiny dark blue stars next and then build out from there. Not sure which block I’ll use next. If it gets too wide, I’ll just extend on the ends???
I think these two quilts want to be companion quilts, and I know two little girls who are getting a new, shared bedroom in the near future. One of them does not have a “big girl” bed quilt from me.
