Though not blogging, I have been quilting.

I have been working on my niece's quilt though I have not been taking pictures or posting. I actually have completed the last three blocks:


King's X


I have also completed the "quilt sandwich" (front, batting, and backing fabric) and quilted 11 of the 15 blocks.

I added a strip of the other fabrics to the back of the quilt for interest.

This is the backing fabric, which is the same fabric I used for the stripping and edging on the quilt top.

I need to finish quilting the final 4 blocks and do some quilting on the border of the quilt top. I am looking for a swirly or scroll design.

Long time no see

My progress has been hampered by a rotary cutter injury to the tip of my left index finger and general life business. Another block for my niece's quilt, Log Cabin:
Whoa the log cabin took a long time with all the seams and trying to get everything lined up straight.
I am also planning a new project. I recently purchased a selection of fabrics for a quilt for my brother and sister-in-law to be.
