Thread and Bolts Quilting has been very busy since last week's Block of the Month M & M Quilter's group came. Many parts and pieces of the Marti Michell "U-Taupia" Quilt are in process.
There are 56 or more of these needed for one of the borders. Lynn made a few in the half-sized...opps! They will make a nice edge on the pillowcases that will go with this quilt.
We tried different Alternate solid blocks and setting triangles with the pieced blocks on the wall. The blue is nice but it just didn't make these Jewel-toned blocks pop. We settled on the dark purple. You can see a little of the border fabrics being tested up there too.
A few tiny Pinwheel blocks and two color sashings were made and the Block with the BLUE around the center square got fixed too. The 4 corner Blocks will be the same block. Lynn is adding 4 extras to make this quilt fit her bed -King sized. The fabrics are mostly "Butterfly Carnival" from Kona Bay. This is just a sneak peek of the quilt. It is well on the way to being a Flimsy, ready to be quilted with Butterflies.
Hopefully by this time next week it will be on it's way to the Spring Trade Show @ Trends in Portland.
Both Marti Michell and Doug, aka: Mr. Kona Bay will be there and won't they be surprised when they see it hanging up in the Warehouse? We'll post the Finished Quilt next week.
