I took the fabric out of the box and put a square together for my friends quilt. I just need to do 2 more and then I can put the quilt top together. I took out the pieces to see what I had done and how much is needed to finish up the last two blocks.
I then went through my fabrics to pick out colors that will work for the Funky Chicken pattern I need t do. This quilt block is for one of our group ladies. She asked for the Funky Chicken block from all of us. I had my son work on a "cook" for my funky chicken. He did the pattern for me, and I'm ready to go. Just need to get started. The spatula is done in 2 colors, so picked out the above and will applique the first spatula on to the second one first, then cut it out and applique it to the bird.
Once the "case" was done, then I went and sewed the felt on.
This is the finished design. It is quick and easy. For me, that is WONDERFUL!!
I also got some quilting in. This flower, I had to take out ALL my quilting, and HOPE I didn't have to take out more. I was lucky in that regard, once the flower quilting was removed, I could go back and quilt it without the buckling I had when I quilted it the first time.
Now I'm getting along fine. The echoing is starting up for this area. Once I get that area going around, it won't take long at all. It's a big area, but at least I'm closer than I was. I believe this is the corner area, but not sure. After awhile it seems like I'm working on the same area and the quilting disappeared on me. lol
I updated my journal on the Baltimore Liberty quilt that I'm working on. I bought gray fabric for the bell while we were in Las Vegas, so I'm ready to get moving on this quilt. I need to finish the funky chicken this week because I really don't want to get behind with more than one quilt block at a time.....Wish me luck.
Need to get back in the mood to work on the funky chicken and finish a few more blocks.
Hopefully by next week, I'll have the funky chicken done, and more quilting on the Hawaiian. I seriously need to get moving on the Hawaiian as we will be at the retreat in April. I need it finished by there......in the mean time, I'll be Happy Quilting.....
