Good Morning Quilters!
The Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show is this week in Newport News, VA. I have several quilts there, in the "Churn Dashers of Tidewater Virginia" special exhibit. I am happy to be traveling to the show to see the exhibit in person. Since we used to live in Williamsburg, VA, there are friends there that we will be visiting also.
I have not worked on my Benjamin Biggs quilt at all this week, but instead, I've prepared several quilts to ready them for hand sewing the final seam on the binding. I have four quilts to bind, and I will be binding in the car, all the way to Virginia and on the way back home. Hopefully I will get all four quilts bound, and I will be caught up in quilt binding until I get another one back from a long arm quilter. I may possibly pick up one on the trip back home, if it is ready for me.
The only thing I have to show you this week are some little hsts I made to turn into a small quilt. I found some red plaid triangles, sewed them into hsts and trimmed them all to 1.25 inch by 1.25 inch. They will finish at 3/4 inch square, and the little quilt will be 3.75 inches by 4.5 inches if there is no border added.
Here are some possible arrangements for this small quilt:
I will probably assemble them like the next to the last picture - I do like the broken dishes pattern very much. But it was fun to play with the small blocks after I trimmed them while I was in the car today. What do you think?
What are you working on this week? I will show you pictures next week of quilts that I have seen at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show. I will be looking at your pictures, and reading your blogs while I am away.
