Happy Easter all. It’s been very quiet here and rainy, and gloomy. We are following the state “stay at home” directive and well….let’s just say I did a lot of sewing today!
This week I finally finished my batik Chequers quilt. The pattern is from the “Modern Quilts Illustrated book. This baby took forever! When I went to put the completed blocks together, I wasn’t loving a few of my choices so I remade the blocks. Then – ta da! – I quilted it! If you know me, you know that other than small quilts like table toppers, I am not a quilter. It’s just not something I enjoy, but this one I was determined to quilt. It’s all straight and curvy lines. Burying threads took forever!
Instead of using batting, I backed this top with a bright green fleece. I love the weight and the softness. This will be my new couch quilt to cuddle up with in the evenings when I’m chilled.
I’ve also made more masks. I’ll confess – I’m not as productive in this department as other quilters have been. My hats off to all those who are so generously making and donating a load of masks. Some have offered to buy them from me but I have so gladly gifted the masks. We’re in this together and even my little contribution can go a long way.
