Adrian's quilt

I found some log cabin blocks from a project I did a few years ago and decided to make a quilt for my godson, Adrian. It's 1239 am the basting is not done yet! This is one of the marathon quilts.......... deadline..... Friday!!!!

Quilted this on the corner of the wall hanging. Don't know if I should draw a more complicated or busier quilting design. I will see later and add in as I go along. It took more time to quilt around the flowers and vines. The corner pattern took less time!!!

This is still on the quilting frame!! I have not been spending time on it. I should be concentrating on it for the next few weeks!! Hoping to finish it before the year is out!!! LOL

I've finished the quilt top. Added a red sashing and a border. My first thought was using the red fabric for the center square but when I match it with the black squares, it somehow dulls the block!! I actually spent some time going through my fabric stash. I was very happy when I found the center square fabric because if you look at it closely, the background is black!! LOL

Put all the blocks together! I just hope Regina likes the colorful center fabric! I try to keep it plain just the way she likes it and because triangles are also not her cup of tea, I chose this pattern for her quilt top.

This morning, I went for a free-form machine quilting class. It was a very informative and interesting class. I really enjoyed it. Time just flew by!!! Got some homework too!! I got a long, long way to go!!! LOL
Right...... back to Regina's quilt top!! I've joined all the blocks together. This is a one block pattern quilt so it's very easy and fast to piece together!! It would be more interesting if I could put more color into it!! My friend doesn't like flowers so I am actually taking a risk sewing the center squares!! She hasn't seen the fabric! LOL

I chose the flower print for the center of the block. This will brighten up the quilt top. There are too many plain black squares!!

Sewed the printed fabric onto the beige fabric. After that, I ironed and sew them into squares. I don't know but I find the colors rather dull. Might have to do something about it!!

I had to trim the squares a bit because some of them are not cut properly!! Then I quarter all the squares. After I did all that, I found I had quite a few black squares. We'll have to see how it turn out when I piece them with the the printed beige fabric.

Regina's Quilt

My friend, Regina, gave me this to make a quilt top for her. She also bought some plain printed beige fabric to match. I fancy the squares are too big to use it as it is so I am going to cut them! Regina doesn't like the flower print so cutting the squares is a good idea!! LOL
