Hope everyone in the US and Canada are having a great holiday weekend. It's been raining and overcast here but still been a nice weekend as I've made some extra dinners and done a lot of baking so the kids have food for school lunches. School starts tomorrow and I think I'm really going to miss having the kids home.
On to some quilty content, I managed to get my second Mod Sampler from the Oh, Fransson Mod Sampler Quilt Along sashed and ready for the LongArm. I was supposed to be catching up on all my own LongArm quilting for the summer but instead my To Be Quilted stack has grown larger than ever. What can I say, I've been obsessed by piecing; I think I'll have to call this summer the "Summer of My Piecing Frenzy"!
Back in March I participated in the Quilt Along put on by Elizabeth Hartman; her cutting instructions and designs are simply amazing. Here is the quilt I came up with.
My 17 year old son wanted to claim it but I thought it was a bit too feminine, so, I decided to take the rest of the FQ stack of Mambo and make a more masculine quilt sashed in chocolate brown Kona for him. Here is a photo of the back first quilt-along quilt I completed.
So, in June I started piecing this one and made all the blocks and then I became distracted with some other piecing projects. Last week my sister and I laid out all of the blocks and determined the layout and I worked all week sashing it. I finally finished the quilt top last night. Yay!
Here it is all ready for quilting!
