October Quiltathon Project

The next Quiltathon is October 4, 5, 6 and 7.  You’re welcome to work on any project you like but the project I’ll be working on will be for a QOV to send to Alycia.

This will again be done in the “cheat sheet” format with plain borders.  If you’d like a pieced border, I recommend my 60 Pieced Borders book.

This quilt will be 65″ x 82″ if made as shown.  According to Electric Quilt, the fabric requirements, not counting binding, will be:

Background – 2-1/4 yards
Red – 1/2 yard
Navy – 3 yards
Gold – 1-1/4 yards

There are some quite a few flying geese but other than those, it’s a simple and quick pattern!

    When I saw the quilt drawing, I immediately thought of a bunch of scrappy 9-patches from a block exchange that have been waiting for some inspiration of what to do with them … I am thinking of scaling your block to work with my collection of swap blocks. Maybe I’ll join your quiltathon and work on these.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Looks good Judy. don’t know if I’ll be working on that one then, may have to keep it for later. Depends on how far I get on the must do tops. My 2 week qualtathon starts this evening after I get back from airport! Galen gets back 10/6. Do you think I can keep busy for 2 weeks?

    I have to have my mom’s quilt done by Oct. 6th when I leave to go visit her, so hopefully I won’t still be working on it the days before! LOL I almost have all of the blocks done, I’ve been sick so I have not worked on it much the past few days.

    I like that very much. Do you have a name for this one yet? I have a bunch of those 9-patch swap blocks, too, plus a bunch of 9-patches which were donated for American Heroes. Have I ever told you how much I appreciate your approach to piecing tops? I can’t tell you how many pretty tops I’ve made for AmHero using your hour a day sewing plans, and I’ve even often converted other patterns to that concept. =)
