Peace on Earth-Part 2


I made this quilt with the 100 half square triangles I had when I made this quilt last month.  When I sewed the corners on each of the strips, I sewed another line 1/2 from it and cut between the stitches and got these extra blocks. I also used all the left over fabrics and scraps from my scrap bins to complete this.  This will be donated to our guild's charity quilts.  I used it to practice my loops and swirls machine quilting.  (I still need some more work on it to keep the lines straight and consistent.)

I also worked a bit this week on my brothers quilt.  I drew a design out to use what I have as far as x-blocks - I just hope it turns out as good in real life as it does in my head.

Thanks for looking.  Off to clean house for a bit.  I have the art group Loose Threads coming on Thursday and the Best of the Valley Quilt show next weekend.

Feels good to use up those extra blocks, huh? When I first saw the quilt from a distance, I was thinking that you would use all those great open spaces to practice your quilting. I was right :-).
