Staying Connected #9

From Sharon R … A charm pack quilt … I finally got this put together and the bindings on. I used that soft plush fabric on the back (not minky) and it was nice to sew with. I thought maybe it could be unisex but not sure …what do you think? Turquoise on the back and a darker turquoise binding.

From Linda F … Thanks goes out to Sonia S who donated 10 masks to Sage House. The masks have long ties that will make them very comfortable to wear. So far, we’ve donated 40 masks, of various sizes and designs. If anyone else wants to be involved, just call me (Linda F.)

From Anne W … Here are the newest additions to my stick figure family …

… and now that I’ve received the replacement for the broken free-hand quilting foot, I’m continuing on the hexagon quilt. It’ll take me a long, long time, which is ok as I’ve got plenty of that on my hands.

From Maureen … Finished!! Machine quilted and bound.

From Glenna … This is my seahorse from the floral collage workshop.

From Marilyn … Happy quilting everyone! I would like to mention that so far the CQA is still taking postcards and they have to be in by June 1 so there is still time to make one. They is also still time to make and enter a Triad quilt. The showing of these quilts will be virtual.

In March I finished a quilt made with the leftovers of my daughter’s first quilt. She bought a kit from Thread Bear years ago and still has it. She changed a few of the fabrics so there were enough leftovers to make another quilt top. I brought them back with me and made this quilt which will go to her friend here who is having a baby soon …

My second finish is from April. I finished a quilt inspired by the Libs Elliott class I took at CQA in Ottawa last year. “Embrace the Chaos” uses the random placement of six blocks one has chosen from a set of blocks handed out by Libs. Libs has a computer program that places the blocks but she used a bag of numbers and dice for us to place blocks randomly. The quilt is now with my daughter, her husband, and their new baby girl.

Thanks to Sharon, Linda, Anne, Maureen, Glenna and Marilyn for sharing their projects.
