HQAL: Tori’s Quilt


Continuing to work on my quilt for my granddaughter Tori aka Torance πŸ™‚ I am ready to update for our three week posting.

In my last post I had completed 5 out of 16 blocks and for this posting I have added 4 more blocks making a total of 9 blocks – more than half way there πŸ™‚ With all the blocks basically the same there isn’t much visual change. I’ll just add the 9 block picture of now.

Last time I shared my new passion – junk journals. I have been fiddling around with some ideas, working on a Christmas jj for a friend. I made a simple quilted cover for this one. It’s funny how when you look at your work in pictures you can really begin to critique and see what you could have done. I quilted around the bird and the single leaf under the bird button. Wow – what if I had quilted all the green leaves – that would have been better. It’s already glued in place and no changing it now. What I am going to do is create an entire quilted cover for my next try πŸ™‚

    Your quilt is looking mighty fine! I loved pulling up the photos close so I could see all the things you were putting in the journal. They are going to give that special person a lot of fun. It’s such a thoughtful gift!
