My work-in-progress this week has hit a stall, but for good reasons. We have been apartment hunting for my daughter — with success! The remainder of August will be a busy one, getting her moved and settled.
So I’m still working on my Mt. Hood quilt and I haven’t gotten any further on it than I was last week. I need to get the first inner border on it — I’ve been thinking about that and what fabric would work. My goal for this quilt is to do it all from my stash. I’m hoping I have a piece of fabric that will work for the borders, both the inner and the final outer border. Between the two borders will be a row of hourglass blocks.
The pattern is by Pat Speth from her Nickel Quilts book. It’s an easy quilt to make and a great quilt pattern if you’re looking to use up some of your scraps. All of the blocks in the book are made from 5″ squares (that’s why they’re called nickel quilts).
Remember that wedding quilt I made? It was given to the newlyweds last night, and they loved it.
Today calls for shopping with my daughter to prepare for the move. I’m looking forward to spending the day with her. I hope to sneak in some quilting in the next couple of days, however.
