Jul 28, 2019: Picked up the jelly rolls Saturday at Ye Olde Forest Quilt Shop. Googled for a 2-color strip quilt project and found Cozy Quilt "Glory." It makes a rather large on-point quilt but I prefer the horizontal layout. It is a bit of piecing but the kind that goes fast (not). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjNmZkIN4nY May 07, 2020: Eddie Gomez is here very much wanting a quilt. The one he seems most interested in is a RWB so I am doing a modification of Glory. I will know soon enough how tedious this really is. Lots of 9-patches & sashing with cornerstones shouldn't be too bad. May 08: Fabric ordered. May 16: Started piecing the 6"x6" 9-patches. May 22: 8"x8" blocks are together. Planning the layout. May 23: Rows are together. May 27: Center is together. Borders next. Waiting on striped border fabric. July 07: Vendor refunded the border fabric cost--couldn't fill the order. July 08: Decided to leave off the border & bind with the white--i.e. Shimmer Radiance. Quilt will still be large enough. Ordered the bit of needed fabric. Sep 23: Working on the backing. Oct 18: Backing is done. Loaded. Oct 19: Quilted. Oct 20: Binding is attached. Oct 21: Clipped the binding. Oct 22: Started the hand binding. Oct 27: Binding is done and so is the quilt.
Jul 13, 2019: This disappearing pinwheel quilt is demonstrated online by MSQC. I found it months ago & did the EQ7 rendition then. Now it has the intended fabrics from the RWB fabrics for Joan's Vietnam Vets Project. This will be a J&L Quilt. Jul 17: Backing is here. Jul 19: All fabrics are pre-washed. Jul 27: Swapping white for Wilmington Prints Cookies & Cream tonal 10" squares--1/2 light cream, 1/2 bright white. Mar 02, 2020: Started piecing. Cut the blue and red blocks & paired them with the cream tonals. Mar 03: Sewed the perimeter on the 20 paired 10" squares - 5 blue & white, 5 red & white. Cut the diagonals to make HST pinwheels & sew together. My pinwheel blocks are 12.75" square. Cut the pinwheel blocks in thirds (three 4.25" sections or cut 2 1/8" from center on all four sides.) horizontally and vertically, rearrange & sew back together into large pinwheel blocks. Completed a couple of blocks all the way to see what I have gotten myself into before doing all 20 blocks. Mar 04-07: Working on the "sew back together" part as I get a chance. Mar 20: After a long break, I finished the 18 pinwheel blocks. Yes, getting the centers just so was as tedious as I feared. Apr 10: Made some progress yesterday on the red blocks and along the way. Going is slow. Apr 16: The 20 blocks are done. Whew! The 5 rows are together. Apr 17: Quilt center is in one piece. White border is on. Apr 18: Red border is on. Blue border is left to do. Apr 20: Quilt top is finished. Sep 22: Loaded. Sep 23: Programmed. Quilting. Sep 24: Quilted. Sep 28: Squared. Oct 05: Made the binding. Oct 11: Attached the binding. Oct 13: Hand sewing the binding. Oct 15: Bound.
