March Goal completed

I did get all the blocks and other components assembled and put some up on the design wall with a bunch of blue scraps and two lengths of blue to pick what to use as corner stones. The two bottom right ones are the lengths of fabric but I've decided that I'd rather the blues here are also scrappy so I'll use some of the blues I already used in the top. Linking up with Patty's One Monthly Goal

Kindred Hearts Quilt Show 2019

On Saturday I went to the Kindred Hearts Quilt Show in Oshawa with my sister and her friend.  It was a busy show and they had a lot of wonderful quilts.  I liked that they hung similar quilts together as its always fun to see the difference colour and value make to the quilt. After we left the show, we were discussing what we had seen.  The question was which quilt was your favorite / stood out the most. This tiny quilt by Jane Souch call the Spirit of Lucy's Bear was one of my favorites.  I love how it blends from the bear to a forest scene. This pair by Nancy Fitz-Gerald and Helma Rollings were fun to see side by side. They used 2.5 inch strips from a guild exchange to create similar pick up sticks quilts. I was also drawn to the very colourful quilts this time like these ones: Chakra Balance by Kleo Tobias Sweet Tooth by Shelley Tapp Best Friends forever by Jane Souch Colour Explosion by Jane Souch I also looked at quilting details and design details.

OMG: March 2019

I'm getting back to my quilting so am joining up with One Monthly Goal (OMG) again.  Had a fun time at a guild retreat on the weekend and got all the components for Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery quilt completed and made atleast one of each of the blocks.  My goal for March is to make all the blocks, the sashing and the border units.  Ideally I'd get the top assembled but I'll be happy to have the blocks made.  Its been about 5 years in the works.  I didn't like the green checker board I made originally and on the weekend they got remade with pale greens.
