February 2018, the Missouri Star Quilting Blog demonstrated a Disappearing Pin Wheel Basket quilt. My mind saw that quilt in solid colors. I sent for a 'layer cake' of solids planning on using each color only once, 42 colors. I was not able to arrange them in a way that I liked but I wanted to try those baskets.
I took four basic colors and made a table topper, 25 inches square.
I then made the quilt sandwich and machine quilted it. The back is a red with white polka dots. It made a nice practice piece for ruler work. Not a fancy pattern but more time with a quilt under my hands for learning.
Last week I met with my quilting cousin Kathy. She gave me this cute hot pad. It is our cat Ted in a log cabin block 10 inches square. I think he is so cute that I will make some for other cats in the family.
I am half way around the final row of Reneluk's Spring 2018 Doiley. I was caught by quilts and material and that has slowed me down. Have also made the first 33 of the 2018 Angels for the Christmas Tree at church. Also, I am ripping out machine quilting (a lot) on a quilt that I am not happy with. I am happy with the quilt, not my machine quilting.
May this find you all well and enjoying thread in some form.
