My #3 Quilt Doodle Designs 2016 BOM is quilted and bound. I still haven't decided what buttons to use for the eyes of the snowmen and Santas and such. I'm not considering it 100% done yet. Here it is fighting the Ohio wind and rain today. Whew... glad I didn't drop a white quilt in the mud!
I'm linking up with Jen who blogs at Quilter in the Closet for the 60-day check-in here.
I'm also linking up for Fiber Tuesdays at The Quilting Room with Mel. It's a fun place to visit every Tuesday to see what others are doing.
I do have to say that I am feeling like I have been accomplishing major projects lately. I FINISHED my 2015 Bonnie Hunter Mystery, Allietare! on Friday. You can read about it here.
I'm also excited to have the 2014 Bonnie Hunter Mystery, Celtic Solstice. I FINALLY made a pieced back for it. I can't wait for the grand reveal of it to you. It's got a LOT going on. It's got a ton of orphan blocks and piece parts and strips and big chunks of scrappy fun.
Here it is on the frame. I'm so happy it's to this stage.
I am quilting it with Circle Lord giant template board called Egyptian Eye. I wanted dense quilting but in a simple pattern. This is the largest quilt I have put on my frame -- ever. I'm using all but 2" of it. We have a California King bed. This has a huge drop. I don't know exact measurements yet. I put a larger border than planned on it just in case I have to square up the corners if it stretches a little. So far so good... but it's not done yet.
