I have finally finished my HSTs...all 324 of them!
I've decided that I'm not going to be putting this on the back of my X-Plus quilt. Instead, I'm going to be turning this into a baby quilt to donate to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. Our local MQG is going to collect some quilts to take over and present to some special little patients.
I attached a border to frame out the HSTs. This muted aqua color from my fabric stash seems to blend in well with all the blues/aquas/greens in the quilt. I think this will be a perfect quilt for a little boy, don't you?
I've also come along on my EPP. I'll be attaching the last three columns this week and then I'll start quilting it to some batting to create the front panel of a new sewing machine cover. I'll be assembling this cover just like my other sewing machine cover.
The back panel is still being formulated in my mind. I'll keep you posted on it.
Other things on my list for this week are piecing the back for the Quilt of Valor our local MQG is putting together and cutting the fabric for a baby quilt I'm making for a friend. For the Quilt of Valor, each guild member made a few blocks for the quilt. Katelyn over at Sing While Crafting assembled the quilt top. I'm creating the back and will be basting it. Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation will be quilting and binding it. It's a wonderful group effort.
