Hey there, quilty peeps! In the ten days since I last posted about this project, I have completed exactly FOUR more Halo quilt blocks. Don't let my slow progress discourage you from attempting this pattern, though -- I've also quilted three pretty intense quilts for clients, prepared music and sang at a funeral, and drove up to the mountains to visit my son in the past 10 days. I am fitting these blocks in here and there when I have time, not at all chained to the sewing machine for hours at a time. You can read more about this project and find links to the Jen Kingwell pattern, templates, and other must-haves for making this quilt in my previous post here.
|My Latest Favorite Halo Block|
Since this quilt will be a gift for my mother-in-law, I'm thinking about her favorite colors (light pink, medium pink, and hot pink!) as I'm picking out the fabrics for each block. Looking at the ten blocks I've finished so far on my design wall, I don't know if there's ENOUGH pink? 😂
|10 Halo Blocks Down, 26 Blocks (Plus Border Blocks) to Go|
One thing that really helped me make some progress was packing up my machine and prepped block pieces and taking the project "on the road" to the Charlotte Quilters Guild's monthly Sit & Sew.
