I am still pondering my scorched project - yeah, I will try to salvedge it but not until I am in the right frame of mind. So I did some meandering quilting to finish off three quilts. This is actually one of my SIL's projects - tutorial for the Sophie Car Seat Quilt found at Moda Bake Shop. She is making another and will do bindings/ties on both when the other is finished.
The other two quilts I'll show once we get some better weather for outside photos. Our weather has been cold, rainy, and severe storms. We even had an F-3 tornado touch down about 20 miles away - info found HERE. I was frantic to reach my son as it is his neighborhood - luckily it died down once it got into his neck of the woods.
I hate thunderstorms (and the metal in my body - really affects me) so I dumped that never ending scrap basket to meander thru.
I have 6 of these old phone books (every family member household passed them on to me) with nice thin paper for string blocks and there were lots of strings in that basket.
And I meandered thru those scraps some more - gosh, hate to pass up on all those free block tutorials offered with RSC14. Lots of 6.5" unfinished blocks - scrap goodness - keeping my mind from the storms.
While meandering thru that basket, I found my zip baggy holding scraps for my Round Robing project. So I thought I would get that final step done and add the left overs to the pile. The last round had to have some 4-patch(es) and I went with just a plain border with the corners as the 4-patch. Those red strips hanging are my binding. This will wait until June or July for quilting.
I have another top sandwiched that needs quilting, so I will ponder on whether to meander or strightline quilt it OR if the weather is better, get a little meander outside - cabin fever is setting in again.
