I was right!!!
The final blocks were finished about a month ago and I decided on a layout:
If YOU recognize that polka dot fabric, THANK YOU!! That print is such a fun choice for the setting triangles and there's even a little leftover for another project:
Assembling the rows had me missing my "design floor" from the last house and had me wishing for a spot for a design wall in this house, as there was a second quiltmaker in the studio that day, but I'm certainly not complaining about that:
I was left with four blocks to transform into a scrappy something at a later date. I used every bit of the floral print! I believe my friend DeeDee is to thank for that one:
I posted about the completed quilt top HERE:
Not SEW long ago, I decided on a backing (also from DeeDee, if memory serves me correctly) and pieced in a strip of sunshine to make up the difference...
The quilt waited...
And it was eventually (in celebration of a completed T-quilt!) loaded on the longarm:
I started with yet another attempt at doing Orange Peels:
It only took THREE setting triangles for me to realize two things:
The first was that I may NEVER master that quilting design and the second was that a large allover meander goes really fast! Before I knew it, it was time to trim the quilt...
... And prepare the binding:
Once again, the quilt waited...
... Until I was done with the second T-quilt. Only then did I allow myself to work on this one. Yesterday, I was pleased to finish off the binding:
Look closely, RSC Quilter friends! There is some Dark GREEN to end the May Color of the Month.
And there, dear friends, is another quilt done and dusted... Too bad it wasn't on the UFO Club list!!! :o((
Again, these blocks came by way of Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict who shared a tutorial by Christina @ A Few Scraps for H2H21. It was YELLOW month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge when I got started on my blocks. I's SEW glad that they gave me a head start for this year's event! This cheerful quilt will be donated to my local Quilt Guild for one of their charities. A smaller quilt was just what I needed during T-Quilt season. :o))
