OctoberQuest #4

Yeah! the finish is actually on my goals list!




I had started doing two x five strips of red, blue and yellow 2 1/2 in squares.... i dont even remember their purpose or what i was going to make with them... i just had about 10 of them done.

In my quest to rid myself of unfinished projects taking up space... i made them into this....

the border was a blue sheet (same one i am using in the plaid quilt) and the back was a sheet I bought at a yardsale.

Partially why i finished this one is because i am out of my go to peicing color of thread.... im waiting for my shipment of thread and batting from connecting threads. I had blue... blue quilting would work!!


Oh no! I was out of the red and white stripe I use on all of these red and blue projects. I had some of this red and white vine... I think it works!

Other things i have been working on. I didn't use Beth's border exactly... i decided to use the extra 4 patch blocks I had... but i like how it turned out.

My pile of ready to be quilted is growing. They go in this pile when there is a flimsy, a back and binding prepared!! (i have a whole tub of ready to be quilted flimsies... without the back and binding)

The runner is lovely and I think the red/white vine goes very well!
