Here is a a picture of the quilts that I basted, most of them over the weekend. If you aren't a regular, this post is brought to you by Tanya, Richard hates basting quilts (pin or spray). I did give in and went and bought some more pins. I don't think Richard will run out of quilts to quilt anytime soon. In Richard's defense, he did get one quilted and bound. It is in the wash and pictures will be coming soon.
I also finished two quilt tops this weekend. The owl will most likely go on Etsy and and the butterfly one is for girls camp auction.
The owl is a star quilt as Richard pointed out. I was going for alternating blocks from 8 1/2 inch squares forming half square triangles . This was using the same pattern that I did the pieced rag quilt in. I don't know if I will ever do that large of blocks again in a pieced quilt. I think 5 or 6 inch squares are easier to work with.
The Butterfly quilt top is in the pile of stuff to be quilted. I plan on doing another Butterfly one in different colors, it was fun and simple quilt.
The other boring stuff I did over the weekend involved hand sewing the sleeve on a quilt Richard is displaying at HMQS for part of Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild Display. We watched a movie while setting on the couch and hand stitching. Richard should be proud, I didn't even fall asleep. Normally I fall asleep while watching any movie at home.
Last night I was trying to get Julia to go get one of her toys. She said toy and went and grabbed a strip of fabric. I thought it was cute.
