Monday Meandering 6 - 26 - 2017

I decided to try a different outdoor location for my photo shoot this afternoon. Hum, I'm not sure this works as well as I thought it would.  The quilt, on top of a sheet, is sitting on the grass in the backyard.  I took the photo standing on the deck above it.  Yep, keystoning going on here, but overall a brighter picture than the ones I take in the studio. 
And here's the back of the quilt: I happened to have a length of blue with white stars that I added a big of light grey to.  I found an old piece of gold Marbles that wasn't particularly wide but was quite long.  I'm thinking it might have been used for a border at some time.  I was happy to be able to use it for the binding. 
And quilt #2 -- navy blue and beige pinwheels. 
And, the back this one which was one length of fabric. A friend gave me the fabric a while ago when she found out I make QOV quilts.  This one will go to a nursing home since it is so small -- about 36" square.  I was tickled to find some red and black check for the binding. 

For those who read of my dilemma last week, I still haven't found the flower wall hanging -- neither the back or flowers, leaves and stems that are already to be sewn on!  Argh.  I may start panicking one day soon.  I've looked in all the places I thought I might have put it! Do I want to mention I also can't find my fine line chalk pencil too? EEKS! 

Here's the goals from last week.  Not bad.

Make some fabric boxes
Lay out UFO Grid Lock and start sewing into a top
Make backing for pinwheel quilt #4 and quilt it

I'm linking up with my favorite Monday linky parties: Monday Making, Main Crush Monday and Moving It Forward.  Take some time to visit a few of the posts.  I am always so inspired after looking at several posts.  On the other hand I also seem to have a longer list of what I'd like to do some day.  

Happy Quilting All, Bonnie 


  1. I really like those quilts! and.... it's in the fridgerator, under the salad.... yep... that's where all my pens end up.... maybe yours are siblings to mine ;-)

  2. Oh no, I hope the missing project is soon found.

  3. Very nice finishes on those pinwheels! The flag fabric works really well as a backing. Sometimes a design like that can be hard to use in blocks, probably because the RWB color scheme already has so much contrast.

    Good luck finding your project!

  4. Pretty quilts and I love the binding and the backing your picked for them. I hope you find your missing project soon.



Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
