I finally have a couple of finishes to report. And a third almost finish.
The first major finish is the contest quilt. It will be entered (picture submitted for the contest) today. Final name of the quilt is "It's Quilting, Jim, But Not As We Know It". Suggestion came from an online friend, Kate, and it captures not only the Star Trek reference that I wanted but also the theme of the entire contest which was taking traditional blocks and redesigning them in a modern way.
If you're wondering about the Star Trek reference, for those of you old enough to remember the original shows.....(and yes I do 'cause I watched them!), look at the sashing sectons and what do they remind you of?
Finished the Modern Quilts contest quilt has been finished....after what seemed like "forever" with all the quilting that I did on it. Best estimate of thread is that I have more than 800 yards in just the quilting alone. That means 2400 feet of thread, or almost 1/2 mile of thread. And yes, I'm a numbers geek here.....lol. Final size is 48" by 60".
I also finished the little t-shirt dress I made for my shoe box of gifts for Operation Christmas Child this year.
