Last night, I worked on my disappearing 4 patch quilt. I have all the rows together except for the last one. I sewed them together wrong and figured it out when I went to sew it together. I had to unsew this last row and will resew it together tonight and finish up the quilt top. It went together very well and I am really pleased with it so far. I will put a white on white border around it to frame it then the final border. I haven't bought the final border fabric yet. I know what I want but needed to do some measuring first to figure out how much fabric I needed. I'll probably do that tonight and get the fabric tomorrow if I can find it. I was planning on using stash fabric but this one is for my granddaughter and it needs to be a certain fabric that I don't have...I'll take a pic tonight and show you my progress on it.
I also sewed together all the D9P blocks I had ready and I now have 8 rows of it done. I think it's looking good for a scrap quilt but is turning out darker than I thought it would. I took a picture of it laid out on the floor but can't upload it until tonight. I want to add a few more rows to this one before I call this one finished. I don't plan on this being a big quilt, just lap size. I want to make some of these for the local nursing home. I have enough fabric to make a few so this first one was an experiment to see if I liked the pattern. I had made the D9P before but not this setting. I'm definitely making more of these...they are fun and quick and use up fabric that's been laying around far too long.
I follow Susan at Desert Sky Quilting and she's doing a Get It Done Challenge this year. She lists 4 projects a month to work on. I like that number. I always work better with a challenge too. I have alot of tops that need finishing and alot of projects to work on so I'm going to be doing this challenge this year. I think this challenge actually started over at Judy Laquidara's blog called Patchwork Times and I'll link up with hers too. Now, to decide what 4 things I want to work on for the February challenge...I'll think about that and list those tonight or tomorrow.
