For all 5 of these comfort quilts I will not be putting on the outer borders at retreat. I will wait for borders until I know who they are going to and then I'll buy border/binding/backing to suit that person. The exciting thing about these comfort quilts is with the exception of background fabric they came entirely from my stash. I had a box of batiks that I went through and cut up into 2-1/2, 3-1/2, 5-1/2 & 6-1/2 strips.
Quilts 1, 2 & 3 - Modified Urban Cabin quilts cut up and ready to go. The finished size with border is something like 55X77.
Quilt 4 - Yellow Brick Road Quilt kit. The cool thing about this one is that all 36 of the 3-1/2" strips are different. Also finishes with outer border at around 55X75.
Quilt 5 - Between Friends Jr. Kit - Also finishes with outer border at around 55X75.
Quilt 6 - Modified Strip Twist. The quilt top just needs to be assembled. I last worked on it in November at retreat. Not really sure how far I got with assembly. Will finish 66 X 88.
Quilt 7 - Flowers for Kashmir. Will measure 71 X 82. This will be the 4th retreat this quilt has gone on. It's been cut up the entire time. It's time to make this sucker; it's not going on a 5th retreat. Moneik and I were discussing I should probably make a few rows first so that I've got the piecing of triangles thing down. Yeah, I'm 2 rows of 14 into it and I'm not amused! This was a good idea. I can see this quilt and I parting company once it's finished!!
Ok, Ok, now that I SEE this list I believe that I have enough to keep busy for 4 days. Oh and they've placed wagers on me...whether or not I can accomplish these tasks. I think they're fools for placing a bet because once I hear something like that you better believe I'll do everything to get it done. Moneik is putting up a yard of fabric from her stash for every top I finish. Muhahahaha...I intend to leave retreat 7 yards of fabric richer.
