Here it is--Tumbling Glory, quilted and hung before the actual holiday for which it is intended. That doesn't happen often at my house. I usually have to tell myself I am just getting a jump on next year's holiday because I don't finish things in time.
After making the little patriotic table topper DD#2 bought at the reunion auction, this is what came of the scraps from its creation. It is about 10" square, which means that the center star is 2" and the 4-patch units finish at 1". It is all quilted (Gidget has been busy) and just needs a binding, which I think I will do in blue.
Last post I showed you everything cut to make Cheri's little "Puss In The Corner" quilt. It is so named not because it is made with the traditional block by the same name, but because it has a cat appliqued in the corner. Since applique and I are not on good terms (we haven't spoken in years), mine has a tiny pieced house and I thought I'd call it "House on the Corner". I also made it narrower and longer to be a table runner. This is not sewn together--just laid out on a design board, and it looks like the photo turned out a bit blurry. I'm still trying to decide if I like the house in there or not. It may remain unsewn ( if that isn't a word, it should be) while I ponder. Cheri said she didn't duplicate fabrics in hers. I did duplicate and as I look at the photo I see fabrics "too close to each other". I wasn't going to let that bother me on this piece--I was just going to let the scraps fall where they may. I.JUST.CAN'T.DO.THAT!! Can you?
Anyone else out there serve as poll worker for the elections in their area? I spent a long day at the polls Tuesday as the provisional clerk and in 13 hours of voting I helped 7 people cast provisional ballots. Needless to say, I got some handwork done. This piece just needs the border quilted, then it will get its blue lines washed away.
You may recall that it was made with leftovers from the little basket quilt I made with leftovers from a quilt my Mother made. I also started hand quilting that tiny 4 block sampler I made from scraps from the piece I made with Kathie's scraps. If you understood all that, would you explain it to me?
Tomorrow is my monthly "Quilt Club" with my Mom and sisters. Most of the time just Mom and I end up quilting--my sisters will bring a project to work on, but not usually a quilt. I plan to tackle the latest installment of blocks from the Barrister's Sow-Along so that I can be caught up before the next batch are posted. In honor of the coming holiday, I may do these three in R/W/B plaid shirts.
I only have a couple of days left to get my FMQ Challenge for the month completed and posted. I am running true to form on that, but I really am going to try NOT to be the last one to link up this month.
Until next time,
