My July OMG was to make a Disappearing Nine Patch (D9P) quilt. Julie Cefalu’s quilt along was a fun motivator and Julie has great instructions!
I am happy to say that I completed my version of the D9P and posted about it here!
I began working on the pattern called Aunt Bea’s Parlor sometime before January 2017 , and decided to move this project along by participating in the OMG (One Monthly Goal) and Patchwork Times challenges. Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching also motivated me to get stitching!
In May of 2017, I posted 12 completed embroidered blocks in a slide show here.
In October of 2017, I had all 20 of the blocks completed. I had also begun to piece the top. I never created a slide show with the rest of the blocks, but I did show the blocks in various blog posts as I completed them. If you want to see what they look like, simply do a search by typing ‘Aunt Bea’s Parlor’ in my search bar. All of the posts will come up.
The partially finished top fermented in the closet until May of 2019. Do your projects ever need this special time? Mine often do.
Last month, I had the top completely pieced and basted into a quilt sandwich.
Since then, I have been free motion quilting on it at every opportunity that I could.
