Wednesday, September 2, 2015 in QUILTING by 2 Dogs Studio

How can it already be September? Where does the time go! I have been working a little on my WIP’s during the past week or so. Finally feels like I am making some progress.

Uneven 9 patch Batik ‘Uneven Nine Patch’ (I know – not a very creative name). Any suggestions for a name?
The quilt is coming along nicely. I have started sewing the 8″ blocks together into pairs. The layout is only a 6×8 grid so it shouldn’t take long before the quilt top is finished.

Quarter log cabin Batik – ‘Quarter Log Cabins’. I have 48 blocks done but decided that I wanted the quilt to be bigger. These blocks will finish 6″ square so if I go to a 8×10 grid the quilt center will finish 48″x60″. I was doing a search on quarter log cabin blocks to see if I could find some inspiration for a layout when I found a photo of MY blocks. Kinda strange to be looking at your own blocks on a google image search.

Houses Scrappy Summer 2015 #2 – Houses. I am thinking that the quilt will be smaller (more of wallhanging size) but who knows until it is done. The blocks in the photos were oversized a little since I am wasn’t sure what size I wanted. I am leaning toward a finished 5″x 7″. Here is my first quilt for Scrappy Summer 2015 – Petals using the same collection of fabrics.

Leader Enders 2015 I think I have decided on the layout only to discover that I will need more units (bunches of them). What do you think of adding a border made up of dark squares and rectangles? I like the look but maybe it needs a bit of red for a skinny inner border.
