501 Quilt Top

The 501 quilt top is finished.

061314   (768x1024)As you can see, it is longer (64″ x 76″) than my design wall (72″ x 72″).  I usually pair black & white with red, but I really like this blue version.

Several months ago I decided that there were three main quilting goals that I wanted to accomplish this year.  They are to learn a new technique, add applique to a some quilts, and sew another Judy Niemeyer pattern.

The hexies are the new technique and a great portable project.  Witches Brew is the Judy Niemeyer pattern that I picked and all the fabric to make it has been collected.  As for the applique projects – the first is Kingyo made with Oriental fabric and the second is Loco-Motion made with recycled men’s shirts.

061514    (734x1024)This is going to be a fast finish – see how much is already completed.

061514A   (768x1024)Now it is ready for the applique borders.  There is a good chance that this will be a finished quilt top by this evening.

I worked on the hexies during quilt guild, but their progress will be seen tomorrow.
