Default Totally out of my element...

but Hubby asked if I could make it. A friend of his enlarged a patch that they wear, so I could use it for applique. I did raw-edged applique with satin stitch, even the writing. The center exactly matches that patch. I was so lucky that my stash is what it is! Did the whole quilt (64x64)from stash...couldn't believe it. But hubby said he could! Anyway, the center turned out to be 24 1/2". I decided to go back to the medallion thread we did last year with Elizabrat & Jaba. I had never done a medallion quilt until I did that one with them. It was perfect for doing this quilt. So I did entertwined row, friendship stars, & again entertwined row. It's to be a raffle quilt for our reunion in June. I started working on it 3/1. Used Judy's mysterytrain #9 to use as my L/E (I always make another quilt as a L/E & so usually make 2 quilts at once--it's just the way I work.) I actually also made a scrap 2 1/2" strip flannel quilt along with these (no pic) and it will be donated to the pregnancy center next month. So, I was able to get 3 quilts done in 21 days (tops only)...guess you know where I've been for the last 3 weeks! Sewing room is a disaster area...but what's new? Now to get them quilted...I have a month's worth of tops that must get quilted next month...these 2, 2 for my granddaughter's graduation in June (mysterytrain #3 & HER UFO which she won't be able to finish--it was started when I taught her to sew when she was 10, now she's 18. It's foundation pieced blocks, I will finish it the "fun & done" way), and a wedding throw for a friend's son & wife. It's a scrappy front, but will have subtle wedding fabrics pieced for the back...they are renovating an old house...making something beautiful from scraps; hence the scrappy quilt. Anyway, thanks for looking..........
