From the archives

Henry's quilt.
I finished the baby quilt and delivered it.
I'm all about the straight-line quilting!

Then I dug out another one of my UFOs.
Only plan for this right now is to have it done.
Not as old as the flag quilt. This one can't be more than four years old. Four blocks done in a class based on the book "Piping Hot Curves" by Susan K. Cleveland. Eight more finished this week.
Tools of the trade.
The book's instructions are clear, and I was able to pick up where I left off in class all those years ago. I like learning new techniques. You never know when you might need them, and they can be a source of inspiration. Not that I need more ideas. Time. That's what I need. Any ideas for getting more of that?

Ooops! Missed September

I'll have to recap that month later. Lots of travel, not a lot of quilting.
I did finish the flag top. Ta da!

My version of the flag quilt.
Picture of the original old quilt.
Only eight years in the making. Of the top anyway. We'll see how long it takes to get it quilted as I seem to have quite a pile of those.

I'm quilting the star baby quilt now. Actually, that's done. Working on the binding. Used the star scraps from that to make this little number.

Twelve inches total with half-square triangles finishing at one inch. Not sure what I'll do with it. Pillow? Mini quilt? Add to the pile of similar bits?
