2012 #13 - STEP on Life's Journey
2012 #14 - Working with What You've Got --just needs a binding now. The signature blocks were presented to me after serving as co-chair for the Walla Walla Valley Quilt Guild in 2009. Earlier that year, upon my marriage, members contributed to a basket of fat quarters. I've used pieces of the fat quarters and the signature blocks (and a bit from my own stash) to create a scrapwork version of our guild's logo. The framing around it allowed the redish blocks to fit in too. I've quilted significant elements which include houses (we annual create a Habitat for Humanity quilt), hearts and flowers (we create hearts and flower blocks and assemble quilts for members when a life altering event occurs), other awareness groups like breast cancer, etc. so there is a ribbon at the upper left corner of the red border and a ribbon all the way around the small black border.
Skill Builder Sampler - the rivets were added, backing is ready, it is now ready to quilt.
WWCHS top all remaining bits (including 2 contingency blocks) are cut, still thinking I might get more in the mail. Will put sewing this together off as long as I can and wait for a required piecing day that is coming up when I go to visit my husband at his new work location. I'm excited to quilt something fun in the white border corners.
From last week's SewCalGal's Fall EQ Blog Hop, I wrote some tips on using orphan blocks and creating a Fall Wallhanging. This is a 'technical' start .....not sure when I'll get back to it, but oh well.
