Apr 15, 2015: Just bought this project lest I have nothing to do ... yeah, right! Okay, because I couldn't resist ... (What I get when I dare to leave the cabin & browse Sew Original, our local quilt shop.) Fortissimo by Kaufman along with some Moda Grunges and various other fabrics I hope will coordinate. Pattern is called Points & Peaks.Purchased fabrics. Drew EQ7 rendition.
Apr 16: Botched first attempt at 1/2 rectangle triangles. Did manage to start some blocks.
Apr 18: Added fabrics to EQ7 & updated the rendition.
Apr 23: Bought 1/2 rectangle ruler.
May 23: Bought backing fabric.
Aug 30: Made some progress after many mistakes. Finally have this & the tool figured out. The quilt is made with only 2 blocks. Block 1 is around the edge. Block 2 is in the center. I am glad this is a small quilt. Finished "1" blocks.
Aug 12, 2016: Resuming the piecing.
Aug 13: Piecing the Block 2's.
Aug 14: Piecing the Block 2's.
Aug 15: Blocks are done. Layout is done. Started putting rows together. On hold for now.
Aug 21: Quilt center is done.
Aug 23: First border is on.
Aug 26: Pieced the backing. Outer border is on. Quilt top is finished.
Mar 30, 2017: My good friends, Angelina & Eddie Gomez, are here this week from Florida. Today it occurred to me that this quilt is Angelina's. She selected Folk Art Flower panto which will be stunning on the navy Grunge backing. I will use a cream thread to match the background & Warm & White batting. Just need to get this quilted before Eddie & Angelina come up from Florida next time, well, actually before they leave to go back home next time.
Aug 07: Eddie & Angela got in yesterday so I want to take a break & get this done this week. I have until Saturday. Prepped & loaded ready to quilt.
Aug 08: Quilted. Squared the quilt & made the binding.
Aug 09: After attaching the binding, I will be doing the hand work until finished, hopefully tomorrow. This is a relatively small quilt (52 x 64), so it shouldn't take so very long even though I am very slow at hand binding. I have never been able to speed up the process since I only do a ladder (invisible) stitch. Been trying to talk myself into doing machine binding on this one but just can't get there. Just can't.
