Quilt Top

I have completed my lap quilt top, I only need to add a small border, still debating if I want to add one, and then I need to create my quilt sandwich and quilt all layers together. 

The quilt can easily become a full size quilt by adding wider sashing strips between blocks and a wide border on all sides, but I am sticking to the lap quilt option.

It took some time for me to sort out my own layout of each block. I chose to connected my blocks on the long side, 5 blocks at a time then long sashing that I join between each row of 5 block panel, the instructor went with the 4 block sashed together method.

I chose to go with a dark blue backing fabric, there were a few colors that stood out in these blocks, one of them was the blue, and I wanted a more neutral color on the back since each block had so much white and other prominent colors.  But to keep quilt back interested I went with a floral print.

  2. Thanks Audrey, I am looking forward to doing the actual quilting, trying to find a simple design style, then bind the edges and complete.

Early March 2017

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum




When in NYC shopping is not far from my mind, so I visited LV and got myself a present.




Later in March my BFF and I dance to Uncle Charlie in concert.





Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
