First, I finished my round on the Pelham Quilters 2010 Round Robin. Remember, this is what I received. I can't show you what I decided on just yet, but I promise to post a picture after guild meeting Monday night.
Second, you have seen me working on Raven's wall hanging for awhile, actually since early November. My poor daughter has had to wait while I finished two Christmas presents, then I worked on hers while I also worked on the Round Robin. Well it is all quilted and blocked. Here is a picture of it being blocked on my only rug, in the front porch.
I changed quilting designs as I moved throughout the piece, which was fun, as it didn't get boring. The top is still wet in this shot, so you can see some of the seams, but here is a close up of some of the quilting.
Since this will be a tryptic, I now have to decide where to cut it. Raven wants the center to be bigger than the side pieces. It will have to hang a few days and give me a chance to stare at it, before I decide. Then I will use the technique my friend Elizabeth Rosenberg taught me last week for facing a quilt without corner seams.
I hope to have it done by Monday night to take to guild for Show and Tell and then ship down to Raven in Miami.
