I realize I never mentioned progress on an old project last month. One of the Rainbow Scrap Challenges from 2018 was the Squared Away Sampler designed by Mari/Academic Quilter. When I put them up on the design wall I was short one block to do a 3x4 setting so I made another one.
Then I set about combining them with my current favorite background alternate squares.
It remains unfinished because I am auditioning borders. Oh, and as I was putting it back in the box, I found the missing block that I had "borrowed" for a guild lecture. I guess that means I'm starting another sampler ... or it could become my label.
This week I did finish my abbreviated version of Jenn's Journey (top, back, border) which I'm calling Lib's Trek because of all my starts and stops on that project.
I continued working on Jack's in the Pond (more detail here).
And I took a peak ahead at the end of my alphabet and couldn't resist pulling out Wilderness. It began as a panel of wild animal silhouettes that was left over from this quilt the Rock Island Rockers made for the park office to celebrate our 10th year of retreating in January 2015.
I had already added log cabin strings to the silhouettes and was contemplating how to stretch them with an alternate block when I came across a batik panel of leaves. This is my progress to date.
I had to add strips to the sides of the leaves to make them the same size as the panel blocks. I like the offset look that creates. It has not been assembled yet and I am auditioning borders. I am thinking this would make a nice wheelchair quilt for a gentleman.
Linking with Finished or Not Friday.
