I’ve had a bunch of HSTs lying around for quite awhile. I finally got them trimmed and turned into tops.
That only took me half of the day.
I need to get more of the Kona to finish that top. I think it’s Ash, but I’m not 100% sure. I’m not really in a hurry since it will take me only a few seconds to finish it once I have the Kona.
I’ve torn that quilt out once, but I’m happy with it now. The print fabric is Lost and Found by Jen Allyson for Riley Blake. I think my mom and I both bought a charm pack of it from Missouri Star. She let me have hers and I paired it with the Kona Ash. I don’t have a purpose for this top. It will probably sit for a long time before I get it quilted.
The same goes for this top. The print is Summersville by Lucie Summers for Moda. I believe the solid is Kona Papaya. I’m a big fan of chevrons. The first top was originally going to be chevrons, but I realized I didn’t need two chevron quilts. I really like this top though.
Besides those two tops, I also have the wonky cross top and the star top. I finally have all of the quilting pulled out of the star top and now I need to remove all of the pins and re-baste with spray. The problem is that I don’t have anywhere to spray baste. I may have to wait until I go visit my parents. I’m also working on finishing up the herringbone top, which will hopefully be accomplished this week or next. After that, I’m moving onto a churn dash! My goal is to have a bunch of tops ready and then hope I somehow come by a long arm. Totally unrealistic, but whatever.
My friend was in Dallas and had to stop and take this picture for me. She also quilts.
If you look closely, there’s a man quilting. How cool is that? His quilt looks pretty colorful and awesome, too.
Speaking of colorful and awesome…
Isn’t it pretty? I love veggies. I made a bunch of these to eat throughout the week with various meals. There’s zucchini, onion, carrots, sweet potatoes, and regular potatoes seasoned with sea salt, cracked pepper, and olive oil. Delicious!
