I am finally ready to start sewing the tops together on these quilts. I started these quilt way back in February I started piecing these D9P blocks for these 4 boys:
Now that the blocks are done I have the freedom to work on the “identical but different” layout. The boys share a room so mom wants the quilts to match but be different. Here is the plan:
Two quilts will be set straight – 1 with sashing and 1 without & two will be set on point – 1 with sashing and 1 without. I snapped some pics as I was crawled around on the floor (phew – that is getting harder and harder):
The thing you won’t see here are the random placement of names. I have promised to embroider the boys’ names on their quilts. I haven’t decided where I am going to embroider them yet – or maybe I have and don’t want mom to know yet (I suspect she reads this).
Here is a neat pic of all the trimmed blocks trimmed up:
Next order of business – get at least one quilt top done in the month of July (WhiteBoard says so!).
I am curious…am I the only one who still makes old-fashioned hand written notes for her quilts? I do this! Here is one for one of these quilts (and I have one for each of these quilts – I scanned this one):
As the quilt progresses I add things. For example, if the size changes on this or if I decide I need to add borders, I will sit down with a calculator and decide what size, or when I decide where to embroider his name I will make that notation. Additionally, when its time to figure backing, batting and binding I will do so here.
Since this is for a grand, I will save this paper and maybe when they clean out my quilt room some day they will come across it and he will want it some day. OR they will throw it away.
Now you have a sneak peek at the Super Hero/Americana Quilts as well at my weird note-taking ways….am I alone here?
