Melissa is finished. It is a good feeling to finish a project. I have so many long term projects that never seem to be completed. Most are one block a week (Moda Blockhead 2 and Simple Sampler) or one flying geese a day ( the Temperature quilt). Then there is Dear Jane. She just plods along when I feel like working on her. I have several quilts that are basted and ready to quilt. Also, a few UFOs that I intended to finish this summer. I really should concentrate on one quilt and get it done.
I haven’t talked about Miss Rosie for a while. Today’s quilt is called Open Door. Kerry Nelson, the author of the Miss Rosie book , made her quilt with red, brown and yellow fabric.
The center of my stars were cut from a fabric that I had bought for another project. The flower squares were the right size and there were enough of them to make the quilt. The flowers were different colors so I was able to put them in a medallion setting.
My daughter’s quilt was made with red, blue and turquoise stars. All the fabric came from our stash, so we were able to make quilts with many colors.
We thought the Miss Rosie project would diminish our stash, but that just didn’t happen.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
