This month for the Modern Blocks Quilt-A-Long 3rd square we were given a pattern for Megan’s Star.
This is my version. I bought the lion fabric to line a duffle bag I’ll be making as a gift and it just so happens that it matches my colors perfectly and gave it a lovely opportunity to shine.
Meanwhile my new quilt guild (San Diego Modern Quilt Guild) needed more wonky house blocks for a charity quilt.
So I made another, I tried my hand for the first time with one last month. They say they should go together quickly….hmmm this one took me about two hours. I guess I still haven’t settled into the whole wonky aesthetic yet.
In the area of progress I made the back of the quilt I am creating for my sister
My husband teased me that it took 23 years to create the front of the quilt and one day to create the back (which he likes a little bit better…sigh). I had yards and yards of the pink paisley (still do actually) but I had to make a run to my local quilt shop to get the blue since I had virtually none left over from the front. It will work nicely as the binding as well I think.
Lastly, my bug jar quilt is almost complete
just have to finish the binding.
As you can see the long 4th of July weekend and the first week of my sabbatical was very happy.
