Sep 13, 2015: I purchased this shop sample from Olde Forest Quilt Shoppe pieced by Paula Ginn. Fabric line is More Hearty Good Wishes by Moda. Quilt top pattern is "Take 5"--5 fabrics of equal weight in the quilt center. Just need backing, batting & time to longarm.
Sep 17: Bought backing today at Greensboro's Ye Olde Forest Quilt Shoppe.
Nov 04: I promised to finish this for someone special. She needs to select her quilting pattern.
Jan 02, 2016: Learned she has a pattern in mind but ...
Feb 22: She is still not selecting a pattern so I can only assume she is passively refusing this gift. So be it.
May 30: My friend & neighbor, Eddunio Gomez, asked for another quilt & this one is perfect. He has one quilt already with these fabrics. This one is for a grandson. He has said several times how nice his quilt is because he doesn't get too hot or too cold--just comfortable. Wish I could take credit but that is thanks to the batting.
Jun 22: Loaded ready to quilt.
Jun 23: Quilted.
Jun 24: Squared the quilt. Made & attached the binding. Clipped ready for handwork.
Jun 26: Binding is finished.
May 18: First contact on this quilt. White thread & W&W batting.
May 28: Quilt arrived. This is Sonya's 2nd quilt to grace the cabin.
Jun 16: Doing some overlays, etc. on the Playground for Sonya to ponder while I prep. Thanks for marking the top of the quilt! Spent the day working out the best pattern & density with Sonya. Changed pattern to Flames.
Jun 17: Prepped back & top. I forgot how many points & intersections there are in a half square triangle quilt. Great job by Sonya getting the top flat & all those edge seams are secured nicely. Quilting.
Jun 18: Quilted.
May 15: First contact on this quilt. Welcome back Michelle.
May 20: Quilt is out for delivery today. Sent Michelle some "stippling" patterns & overlays to consider.
Jun 08: Going with Meander 2 & white thread to match the background & Dream Orient (bamboo & silk) batting.
Jun 14: Prepped & loaded. I want to say that this is a beach quilt with no waves! Excellent border piecing here. The easy part was no points to match.
Jun 15: Quilted.
May 19: This is a twin to On Walden Pond Joan Style 2012. I can see why one sister would want exactly the same quilt another one got! Me 3?
Jun 11: Prepped.
Jun12: Loaded. Quilting. Had to stop when the winged tidbits were attracted to the light. Gosh they bug me!!!
Jun 13: Is June really half gone? Quilted. Shipping tomorrow.
May 06: Quilt, pieced by Joan Taylor, is here. Loaded ready to quilt.
May 07: Quilted. Photogenic little quilt.
May 08: Forgot to take the photo I wanted before packing up the quilt. Still I have created some collages that are in places kludgy trying to give a fair representation of the quilt for the gallery.
