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. Dec 30: I will be getting this quilt back as Dr. Gomez said it was too short for him. It will go to one of Joan's veterans as originally intended so this is very good.
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.
