Notification came by e-mail yesterday that Topsy Turvy Nine Patch has been juried in for the AQS Show in Paducah. Knowing the quality of quilts that are exhibited there, this quilt doesn’t have a prayer for a ribbon but it sure is fun to walk around that show wearing a contestant badge.
Did any of you wonder if I have done any sewing this week? I did! Remember these little units? I needed 96 of them, or 192 of the little squares, or, if I messed up and had some of them (like those four on the left) going the wrong direction, then I needed about 200 of them! Anyway, got those all done.
Here’s why we should keep all the parts to our UFO’s together. I know .. everyone else does . . I’m the only one who has stuff everywhere! This is the second Topsy Turvy Nine Patch quilt. I made all these blocks several years ago when testing my instructions before submitting the quilt to the American Quilter magazine. Then I stuck it all aside and either I used all the light gray fabric making the blocks or I used it all in something else or it’s buried here and I can’t find it. I need to get this quilt finished as it will be a sample for the class and I had to substitute another light gray in the border. The light gray in the border isn’t going to be touching the light gray in the blocks but it surely is a different color. I promise myself to keep all the parts of my UFO’s together til they’re finished . . from this day forward!
Next time you hear from me, I hope I’ll be reporting in from Louisiana!
