Off the Wall

I have been on a finishing binge. I have so many quilt tops and piles of blocks in the basement just waiting to be completed. This is the year I plan to reduce that pile! I have finished the 6th UFO for this personal challenge.

Ta Da!

View with the back
This convergence quilt top was made about 2004 or so. I added the border sometime last year. I don't normally do much pink, but the fabrics just seemed to want to play together.

The latest to get under the walking foot is my top from last year's block of the month from the Wales quilt group. I had a lot of fun with sewing these blocks last year. And I was pleased with myself for getting the blocks together into the top and pin basted promptly. I am not counting this as a UFO.

This year's Blocks
I was asked to design this year's Block of the Month for the Wales guild. It is a star sampler. I am pleased with the way my blocks are turning out. I am also really pleased to see how many are participating and getting their blocks completed every month!

Last week I talked about my problems with printing out mirror image. I was able to get it worked out with the help and advice of my Brilliant soon to be Sister-in-Law! I will have get back to this project after I finish the block of the month quilt.

Getting ready for class!
I am really excited, I am going to California in a week to take a class at Empty Spools Seminars at Asilomar! I love that place! I can't wait to see the ocean!  I am taking David Taylor. I am getting my supplies together, so far I have just a few things set up. I have my photo printed out and also the enlargement made. I still need to pull fabrics. I will also stay a couple of days longer to visit my friends in the Sacramento area.

This is my off the wall post for the week, check out what everyone else is up to at Nina-Marie's blog.
