First one finished!

The first item on my list is now a quilt!

This quilt measures 42″ x 54 1/2″ and the top was finished in December 2009.    I do have to admit that when I was sewing the nine patches – I didn’t like them.  I was sure that the quilt top would be a dud.  However the scrappy patches play so well with the black & white hourglass blocks and I am very pleased with how it turned out.

I tried a new quilting pattern – a boxy meander.  It was lots of fun to do, although I had to keep reminding myself to sew “straight”.  Here are a couple of pictures so you can see the stitching.

 

I have been thinking that I need to sew a red version of this quilt, but not this weekend..

This weekend I am working on the next item on my list –  the Hunter Star quilt.  I am over 3/4 way done with the quilting, so the plan is to have it completely finished by Sunday.

So what are you working on this weekend?
