That was my weekend! On Friday, I finished my Rebel Roses quilt.
The pattern is from Quilting for Joy. I’m too lazy to get up and get the book, so I can’t tell you the name of the pattern. I do love this book though. It’s by sisters Barbara Brandeberg and Teri Christopherson. I’ve loved their work for years and have made lots of their quilts.
I also started a knitting project last week. I showed you this photo.
I started the Aeolian Shawl on Knitty. The yarn is Schaefer Andrea. I feel like I’m knitting with pearl cotton!
I’d love to have this done for Mother’s Day.
On Saturday I finally finished a quilt that I started a year ago. All I had left was the borders.
I made the outside border nice and wide so I can scallop it. There’s one block in this quilt that bugged me a year ago and it still bugs me.
The pattern was from Let The Good Times Roll, by Heather Peterson of Anka’s Treasures. The pattern uses a Jelly Roll of fabric and I needed all 40 strips, so I had to use that piece. It’s a little better now that the border is on. It will be a cute little girl quilt with the scallops.
I also pieced backings for the two quilts pictured here and this quilt. This is the quilt that ended up 126 inches square. It took me a while to piece this backing. I also got the bindings ready for all three quilts.
Yesterday, I started a new quilt. I’m going to work on it all day today, so I’ll have more to show you soon. I’m being a bum and taking a day to quilt because it’s my birthday. My family has something planned for later today, but I don’t know what. I’m sure it will include white cake with whipped lard frosting. Yum! And there’s a baseball game tonight. So I’d better get busy and go sew!
