Next I unfolded the rainbow quilt - which now has a good home to go to when finished - and measured it to find that it needs another row of blocks plus some sashing and borders to make it the required width. It does have green in it already but the green was "shades of the rainforest" so this time I pulled all plain greens or green with white and made 6 more 9 patch blocks.
The next colour is pale pink - again there is already pink in the quilt but it was hot pink - so all the pale pinks with white or other soft colours were used. So far these are only cut and laid out ready to be sewn.
I needed a break from all this cutting and headed back to the rail fence tablerunner after breakfast this morning and worked solidly on quilting it, then after lunch on went the binding and yeah I have a finished item to show from my quilting retreat. I am doubly happy as I had nominated one of these items to be finished by the end of the month for July's OMG.
I may even have sometime tomorrow to sneak back into my sewing room and get those pale pink 9 patch blocks finished.
It feels good to be able to tick one off the list and have another on the way to completion. I must do another "at home quilting retreat" in the not too distant future to see what else can be achieved.
Linking with Oh Scrap and Elm Street Quilts - OMG for July.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
