Finished Friday

The last few weeks, among other activities, I’ve been making some Christmas presents – those I can’t post yet! I took a break from that to make yet another scrappy community quilt that started with some orphan blocks I ‘found’ while doing a deep dive in one of my totes in the scrap purge I’ve been conducting lately. Some of my fabric and some Guild fabric supplemented the blocks. The Guild provided the backing and batting and one of the members provided the fabric for the binding. Finished size about 59″ x 71″ before laundering.

The pattern is ‘Hodgepodge’ by Fiber Fantasies (they seem to no longer have an internet presence), one of many variations of the Disappearing Nine-patch block that you can find all over the internet. The quilting is a combo of FMQ feathers and ruler work; I love the texture that feathers create! All the quilting is hand guided by me on my Sweet Sixteen. I used Glide thread on the top and magna-glide in the bobbin.

Now I really must get back to making Christmas presents; I’m not done yet! No more quilts until after Christmas….really…
