April came and went and I completely missed the seventh block in Eleanor Burns' Quilt in a Day Treasure Chest Quilt. I thought I was out of the game and posted on the QIAD facebook page boohooing about it, and two of their followers commented that I should still go ahead and make the block and enter it even if late. So I did, and it was accepted. I sewed in a fury on Tuesday, but it is an easy block to make, and for maybe the first time ever each piece matched up perfectly. Sometimes Life is just plain good:)
The block is called Greek Cross. I like that name.
If you'd like to vote for my block, voting is open until May 10th.
So now I have a checklist. I need to complete three things each month:
Treasure Chest block
Festive Mystery qal
Free Motion Quilting Challenge
Another list; oh boy.
In my last post I shared the Quilt of Valor pictures I had taken at the MQX East.
I could not settle on a quilt pattern for my quilt. I was making a whole variety of stars in 12 inch blocks using patriotic fabric, but I it wasn't what I wanted for this quilt. Then about two weeks ago I received my Quilter's World June magazine and found the one I wanted to make.
So now I have another WIP and that is very satisfying.
Hope everyone is well and happy.
