    In my search, they did cross hatch in the open area on the whole quilt with small wreaths around the snowball blocks in the sashing. I was wanting to get away from that. I do know that the feathers is on the traditional of the 30s. It was the trend for that era. So definitely doing those. I am doing a feather/cable in the outer border and in blocks and center. But from there that background is where I am stumped.

    Here are two UFOs that have made it to flimsy stage this week and are next up on the sandwiching/quilting list - Kitchen Sink Strings and Scrappy Summertime.

    asimplelife--a couple more great scrappy quilts

    I have 4 rows quilted on the airplane quilt...just 3 left before adding borders. In between I have been working on a D9P...I've had the 9Ps done for a while. Cut them apart yesterday and got them sewn together today. I will need to make a couple more blocks to make it 3x4....I wasn't sure if how I was going to lay it out for sure. I am using fabric originally cut for a different pattern and still have some left. I'll look for fabric for setting triangles or border tomorrow when I work (at quilt shop). I have a yard of one of the black prints that I could use for one or the other...just not enough for both.

    It's getting to be the home stretch for this UFO! I've had the top assembled for a while now - it's a simple scrappy brick in bright, pretty colors. I finally got a back pieced this weekend (a bunch of backs, actually) and now I'm on to quilting. This is only my second attempt at FMQ, so I'm dealing with imperfect stitches and eyelashes. But dangit, it's getting done! I need to send it along to my cousin and her parents in Washington state - they're going through a tough time in the hospital right now. I did some squiggles in the ditch prior to FMQ, hence the foot on the machine.



    Here's the top for reference. It's a terrible shot for colors - they're really vibrant and gorgeous in person!

    Jennalyn: Love the quilt. Did something similar on the back of one of my quilts. Really like the look!

    I got my setting triangle fabric...what do you think? A lot of the fabrics have a little red in them.

    Oh and I was very happy to discover the 2 blocks I needed made, just sticking to some other fabric so didn't have to make any more.

    Carrie: Absolutely love the red, it harmonizes the whole quilt. The border sets of the center without detracting from the whole. I really like all your choices, I don't see how it could have turned out better.

    When I first saw the red--I thought it was a little too red--not realizing the border fabric was on the right hand side, And yes now it definitely works. One thing I would do (IMHO) is distribute the blocks that have some red in them more evenly around the quilt. Kinda looks like you have a "hole" with no red showing on the middle left and bottom. Maybe you're not done placing blocks yet either. Some people get sew much done!

    I agree with Oksewglad, there is one block in the upper right corner facing that has red in it that blends right into the triangle, switch it with the second center block down and rotate so the red is not against the other surrounding blocks red, and you will have it. This is why I ask others to look at my designs. I place them up there, stare at it and stare, but never see the move that needs done till someone else looks at it. Have fun piecing it and we look forward to seeing it displayed in the UFO thread.

    OK and QuilterMomma--thanks for the input on the reds in the blocks...I noticed too and rearranged them before starting to sew rows together.

    Wow Fraew, see, no wonder I can finish four tops and you just now finish this one. It is way more intense than the ones I did. Way more intense. I would be glad to go onto something else by the time I finished that one. Reminds me of my tree of life I did several years back, thought they would never end, and look at that border. OMG! Great job girl. Great Job!

    Thank you quilty buddies! 1" finished. All from Mariposa's 1.5" square swaps...almost 1700 of them. I have at least 20 times that many so I am definitely open to suggestions for my next project.

    Mariposa's swaps are fun, but can be full of work. LOL

    So, what's on the agenda for this month??

    I have a couple quilts I am working on...still want to get the airplane quilt finished. I have the quilting started, but have to give my shoulder a couple more weeks to heal before handling the weight. In the mean time I made a baby quilt from scraps...just have binding left.

    My UFO for the month is my 2nd Pony Club Quilt. All the blocks are done just need to put them together. I figured out the layout and math for cutting so hope to get that done tomorrow.

    Also I am working on a quilt for my MIL. I guess it could be considered UFO of her mom's. DH's grandma embroidered blocks (one for each month) and I am putting them together in a quilt. Lots of flying geese in the pattern I choose, so will be trimming those in the evenings.
