I’ve finished a few more weeks of clues on my Coronavirus Quilt (Bonnie Hunter’s Unity Quilt-along) and I’m really loving it!
Every week, I wonder if I’m going to run out of fabrics. I’ve pulled out every scrap of red, blue and aqua that I could find in my sewing room. I don’t have much dark blue and aqua blue left but I still have plenty of red.
I got lucky this past week because the clue was to make red and white/cream half square triangles that we’ll use next week I guess.
So here are my 272 red and white/cream half square triangles. Yay!
I did have to dig into the ugly fabrics to get a nice mix.
But it’s been cut into small pieces and in the end, all you’ll see is something beautiful.
Isn’t that how life is sometimes – you have to make something beautiful out of something ugly?
Believe it or not, I also finished hand quilting the Homemade quilt.
It’s a little hard to see with the light thread but it mostly adds texture. I want to bind it with the dark brown fabric that I used for the churn dash background but I’m a couple inches short! I went online to order more and now – I wait. Things are taking longer these days so it will probably be here mid June (frown- y face here).
I’m also back to hand quilting the borders of my Beauteous quilt but I’m running out of steam on that one and I did something to bruise my left hand so hand quilting is a little painful now. I’ll get to it eventually.
Stay well my friends!
