I went to the main library for Family History Day and this artwork was in their rotating collection in their gallery. It looks like it would make a great quilt. I've often thought about a quilt like this, based on a painting I have at home or log cabins, but this piece makes me think of making it with fusible instead of piecing. It is made in layers.
All of the books pictured here are quilting books. It was hard for me to tear myself away to get back to the genealogy lecture. I did gather a stack to take home with me, as many as I could reasonably carry to my car without tripping.
15 Minutes to Stitch: Week 40I don't have anything picture worthy to show you, but I did press the charity quilts and add the borders.
As part of my cleaning process, most of my time has been spent cutting up some shirts that will be used for a quilt. They take up too much space in their current state. I figured if I could at least cut them down and throw away all those extra bulky bits like collars, buttons, plackets, hems, seams, cuffs and yokes, they will be easier to store. I have a batch where the bulky things are cut out, but this week, I cut the remaining shirts into squares. 10" finished and the smaller pieces are cut into squares that can be combined to make into 10" finished squares.
