Quilt progress! Just binding left..
Trying to upload 3 pics at once! Other people seem to be able to do multiple pics in a post, but I've never been able to get them the way I want before!
Here are shots of my Random Ohio Stars quilt..all that is left to do is the binding and I hope to do that tonight. I played with borders and decided on blue....green was too green, as there are alot of green stars already in the quilt. Remember, these large blocks were gifted to me by friends on an email list, and they didn't know what each other would send, but I guess they all thought green and cheddar (which I love....so it is kinda funny!) Blue just seemed to even out everything. I tried green in the borders and it was too overwhelmingly green. Red made it look like a christmas quilt...so I went with the medium blue inner border and the indigo outer border and I like how it cooled everything down.
I have one more quilt to do for the drawing next week. Gotta dig through some UFO blocks and see what I want to finish. There is a psuedo-pinapple I know I started...it uses 2" strips, and then you sew 3.5" triangles across the digaonal on the corners to give it the pineapple-geese-in-the-corners look. I need 20 12" blocks or so to make a lap size so I think that's a good candidate to work with.
I recieved an email asking me to display some of my quilts in the state guild show....It's a month long show at the Aiken historical museum, and I guess because my quilts 'look old'..they think they would be a great addition to the museum. Isn't that great? Usually stuff is pretty contemporary, at least the last show I attended was, so I guess they are trying to even out the displays a bit. I'll take some over there this afternoon. Aiken is a bit over an hour drive, so that will take up most of what I am going to do this afternoon.
