Last night was the first time I joined a group of quilters that sew alone together. It is called Friday Night with Friends featured on Gone Stitchin' . Click on the name to read about this fantastic group that meets this way every month on the first Friday. Then click on the blog name to see what else Cheryll is up to. Then click on the list of others that joined this months fun FnwF . You will need to click on each person to see what they worked on last night. Here is what I worked on last night.
I am calling it Chain of Love and it will be featured next week as my next free pattern. So come back and download the free PDF's. Maybe you will be able to complete it by Valentines Day. It's really pretty simple to complete. This is one days work for me. That's after I choose my fabrics of course. That actually takes the longest. LOL It is only glue basted so it's not really done. I will applique it today. I see from some of the comments that some think this is a block. It's actually a small wall hanging and will measure 24" x 24" when completed and another border is added.
Part of this design was an accident created by EQ7. Here is a picture of what I really designed.
This how you are supposed to design triangles for placement. I've done it before but this time it kept coming out the way it is in the quilt. I kept turning it and flipping it and it still wanted to be the way it was. So I finally left it alone. That was after I checked to make sure the foundation printing section actually would use the quilt and not the block. It worked and I guess I like it better. It lets the blue outline the center which makes everything pop.
Hopefully next week I will also have my Santa and Snowmen quilt tops completed. I just have a few more stitches of applique on the last snowman and two more blocks to complete on the Santa's. I also have to make the pines for the snowmen but that I have down to a science and should have them done in an hour or so. Better get back to work. I still have to start the next quilt for sharing. I won't let myself start it until the tops of these others are done. So maybe by the 15th or so I will start giving away the blocks for that quilt.
Valentines is almost here!!!
