Inventory of Quilt Tops Ready to be Quilted

I have three tote boxes of finished quilt tops sitting on the shelf waiting to be quilted.  I decided to take an inventory of exactly what is there.  Once I have a photo of the top and measurements, I can go through my stash to identify backings and move these tops to the finished quilt stage.

BOX #1

SCRAP CHAOS  - 58 1/2 inches square

SCRAP CHAOS – 58 1/2 inches square

1.  SCRAP CHAOS – This one will not likely end up as a quilt top.  I will likely loose it in the pieced back of a scrap quilt.  If I were to make this one again, I would disregard Gayleen’s directions relating to the random placement of squares and be more deliberate in placing values.  I much preferred the quilt tops where quilters controlled placement of colour and value.  Started January 17, 2015 and finished to the flimsy stage on February 21, 2015.

STRINGS ON MUSLIN - 54.5" x 63.5"

STRINGS ON MUSLIN – 54.5 in x 63.5 in

2.  STRINGS ON MUSLIN – These string blocks were pieced on a base of muslin.  The additional layer of muslin makes this top heavier than most and will require a very lightweight batting or no batting at all.  Finished to the flimsy stage on September 30, 2013.

CACTI BQ - 57.5 in x 77.5 in

CACTI BQ – 57.5 in x 77.5 in

3.  CACTI BQ – This quilt was finished to the flimsy stage on July 4, 2011.  The backing has already been purchased and is sitting on the shelf – “Desert View” by Michael Miller.
