CGQC Finishes


I realized this morning I had not posted about any January/February finishes. Below is an almost finish...I just need to add the pieced borders for the sides and then the flimsy is done. And in keeping with my 2011 goals this will be added to the "'to be quilted" list and not put away in storage.



These are two small quilts that I have blogged about before and I finally got them quilted and the binding on. I hope to the the hand work this week. I am working on just quilting in the ditch or straight line quilting. It will be a work in progress for awhile. I really want to do some stipple or curvy quilting so have some scraps ready to practice on and I have been watching some how to videos etc...
I did get a good start on finishing (??) the quilt from a CGCQ quilt along. This is my high tech way of keeping the blocks in order to sew the rows together. I number them and then put them on this piece of cardboard that I can keep right beside my machine. 


These half square triangles are left overs from the quilt at the top, so I am making pinwheel blocks with them and will add some kind to alternate block to make a small quilt. As you can see I have my high tech  cardboard waiting so I can put thee in order and chain sew these babies...



Today is Dana's birthday- 23 !! Wow - how can I possibly be old enough to have a 23 year old (and an almost 25 year old!!)? Seems like just yesterday I was 23-well maybe not yesterday...

Have a wonderful week as we get closer and closer to spring. (That would be the eternal optimist in me saying that, as it supposed to be -18 here tomorrow.)

What is the name of the pattern on the first quilt? I really like the pattern & colors!

You are not alone in the way you organize your blocks in order to chain piece them together. I use small sticky labels and mark the row number and direction (L to R, Top to bottom). Great minds (or forgetful ones) think alike!

So close to the finish line on those quilts!! -18! No wonder you are looking forward to Spring. Great organizational method.

Lots of lovely quilts! At least the sun is shining here after a weird weekend of weather...ice, snow, thunderstorms, hail, floods and fog. Surely that means spring is trying to make an appearance!

I wish I could be that organized! I'll have to try your method. We have thunder and lightening today - does that mean Spring is on the way?

You are quite organized! Oh...and I must say do love your fabric choices on your sweet quilt tops!
