The first quilt is Carolina Crossroads. It just barely qualifies as a UFO, as it was started last December. This is the first quilt of Bonnie's that I've done - I just love it!
This "Stepping Stones" quilt is a happy accident. I pieced these scrappy blocks to use as alternate blocks with churn dash blocks I received in a swap. When I finished them I put them up on the design wall with the churn dashes, and these blocks just took over. The entire thing was so busy that the churn dashes just faded into the background. So I made the alternate blocks all over again - not scrappy this time (that quilt is one of the quilts I quilted today). I cut plain alternate squares for these blocks and this is the result. I really love this quilt!
I've also decided that I'm madly in love with this pantograph, "Chestnut Swirls". I used it for the first time on the long cabin quilt I showed yesterday, on this Stepping Stones quilt, and one of the quilts I quilted today. It is most definitely my new favorite pantograph!
1. Our hot weather has gone - at least for this week
2. A safe trip to the beach for Joseph and his parents
3. A caring husband who may not understand my love for quilting, but accepts it unconditionally
4. No more pain in my knees!
