Quilter’s Block

Last weekend I was experiencing Quilter’s Block.

Quilter’s block is a lot like writer’s block–a temporary loss of ability to begin or continue quilting, usually due to a lack of inspiration or creativity.

Last weekend I managed to complete two very small projects:

1. I put the binding on my tulip Spiral table center. I think it goes quite well with the quilt I currently have hanging in the dining room.

2. I made a very small table center for St. Patrick’s Day. This table center is made with the same Spiral pattern as the tulip table center above, just smaller–only one round. This is a picture of the table center at my Mother’s house with her shamrock plant, all ready for March 17th.

So this was the best that I could do last weekend–binding a table topper and making a small table center with the fast turn method (no binding).

Parrot Building Blocks – Quilted

It was a lot of work–a lot of stopping and starting–but it is finally quilted! This is my parrot Building Blocks Quilt (pattern from Debbie Mumm’s website).

This quilt was quilted with individual spirals down the center, overlapping spirals surrounding the center, and crosshatching from the spirals to the edge.

This quilt just needs the binding and it is finished!
