There were actually four more I was thinking of, but one of them got ruled out as there isn’t any chance I could finish it. So now I’m down to three more possibilities for the quilt I work on during the baseball playoffs.
First up is the Patchwork of the Crosses. I added the outer cream hexagons and the purple squares to this block last night, to get a sense of how long it would take. Not long. There are only seven blocks left that need the outer cream hexagons and purple squares. Then it will just be a matter of figuring out placement, adding the outer edges and the 2″ squares that will be needed at the block intersections. So this one is definitely in the running. I’d love to finish my POTC quilt top as the blocks have been languishing far too long.
While there are two distinctly different quilts being made with these, The Memories of Smudge quilt and a shabby chic Yin Yang quilt, I think of this as one project.
The two stacks of the Yin Yang shapes have been sorted into sets of four, so all that’s left is to just pick up each set and stitch. Both would be easy stitching and there is again a reasonably good chance I could finish these during the games.
Finally, the little spool blocks/klosjes. They are tiny, finishing at 2 3/8″. 120 of the blocks are made. All that’s left is to stitch the little blocks together and add a border of some sort. This will be a small wall or doll’s quilt. And definitely one that I could finish during the games.
Baxter seems to like the Yin Yang symbol.
Baxter had to get in on the act when I was putting the klosjes out to be photographed. He takes his quilt inspection duties seriously. Or perhaps he was about to make off with one of the little blocks if only I had turned my back for a second.
