A flimsy (for now).
My One Monthly Goal (OMG) that I declared earlier in the month (make this quilt top) has been accomplished and has resulted in a Broken Wheel quilt top 53 x 66.
Last year I joined two different birthday clubs and this year I joined one. Everyone in the group asks for a particular block in particular colors to be sent to them in their birthday month. I received 24 or 25 different blocks and used 20 of them in this quilt that I thought played well together. I'll use the others in a couple of other quilts so they aren't going to go to waste. That's for sure!
The block I asked for was the Broken Wheel block from Quilter's Cache. Most of the other ladies ask for their blocks to be made in specific colors but I said, " make the block in the colors of your choice on a neutral background of your choice." I really didn't know what to expect so every block was a surprise. I kind of thought it was a psychology test of sorts. Do the colors the ladies chose for my block say something about them?
At any rate... I didn't have to make a single block - I just added a thin sashing and I have a quilt top that I now need to decide how to quilt. Suggestions? Hand quilting or FMQ? First, though, I guess I need to decide on a backing (and a goal for next month).
