Today’s post is twofold. I need to document my recent finishes for 2 of my monthly challenges.
First up is Table Scraps. My Table Scraps took a turn this month. I was all ready to make Star Badge Runner, but I just wasn’t happy with my fabric pull, still mulling that one.
At some point in the month I saw a neat design and decided to go off script and make it instead. I planned it out in EQ8 and then got to work on it. This was the result.
OK, good enough, or is it? No, not quite. So out came the seam ripper so I could take out the bottom 6 Geese to turn them upside down. Why would I do that? So I could add another star end.
And before long it was quilted and ready for display.
I used a new panto I pick up for free at UrbanElementz. I love it!!
I wanted to get precise with the binding, but I was just shy of having enough navy. No matter, I just winged it. It stops and starts one HST in on the Star ends.
Project #2 is my WOOFA for May, Ripples. This began life as Footnote, pattern by Crimson Tate. I am making it for my Great-Niece who lives in North Carolina. They live life on lakes and beaches when possible, so I named it Ripples because of the rings I quilted into it. They are like the ripples in the water, growing out from the center. Orange Peels are in the other blocks, rotated to follow the color spokes of each block.
Alas, I ran out of steam on finishing this one, so I have less than 1/4 of the quilting left to do, which will be easily finished today, our trip south yesterday preempted my finish on this one.
So that’s my recap on those Challenges, plus another look at my 2021 UFO finish, Figo quilt for my neighbor’s toddler.
