The Very Series Quilt
I took it along with me last week thinking that if i finished piecing the big quilt project, I would whip this up so I could finish it this month. However, when I took it out to finish it so I can get it quilted before I pack up my machine, I discovered that I had only cut parts out. I like making half square triangles, so that part when quickly. The borders were a new experience for me. I have done exactly 3 single border mitered cornered quilts. This one has several borders, so I had a new experience. I watched a video online because I did not completely understand the written directions. The first corner was difficult to do, but once I figured it out the others went smoothly.
I have finished the piecing of the king size quilt and quilted and bound several Quilts of Valor. Now I need to quilt and bind the large quilt and a customer quilt. Then I have 10 Quilts of Valor to quilt and bind for the Returning Warrior Weekend. After that I will get this quilt and a "cousin quilt" quilted. All of these needs to be finished by mid-June, so I will be spending a great deal of time in the studio.
