TTMT 2-12-19: 2nd 2019 Finish

Actually it is 2 finishes in 1.  The back is a UFO from 10+ years ago that I never got around to finishing.  So this quilt is reversible.  Win-Win.

Pictures in the video are 1) front, 2) back, 3) my favorite quilt assistant peeking over to say hi.

  1. Hey, cute lady! Those glasses are fantastic and look great with your hair!

    Oh, yay, I am so glad to hear you finished the pepper quilt! Let us know what he thinks.

    I like your plan for your ST blocks. I usually save potential redos for the end, too, and I have to tell you, I rarely redo when I get to the end because those little things get lost in the big picture.

    We’re having the same weather ups and downs. I don’t mind the cold, but I would like some consistency!

  2. He just left and he liked it – YAY!!! I love giving handmade gifts to someone who appreciates them!!! He has 2 sets of pillow cases I’ve given him the last 2 Christmases and he told me tonight that they are both on his bed right now. I’m a happy crafter!

  3. Cute glasses and hair cut! Looking all spiffy!

    The Pepper quilt is great. I love a two sided quilt.

    The Star Trek blocks have definitely been challenging. You aren’t alone in that feeling. They look good enough to me. I won’t stress over it. I like your plan to wait until you see them all together. Half the time I forget where the problems are and have to look for them at the end.

    Happy Crafting! Yay for all those finishes in the works.

  4. You look so cute and spunky!
    2nd quilt for 2019? Excellent. I am finishing my 2nd one for the year and it sure feels good!
    Good decision on ST. Sometimes I get frustrated and need a break, then I get a second wind and things start looking better.
    Oh….I want to see your jelly roll pattern! Sounds wonderful. A mystery for the rest of us.
    That house/barn/church-whatever-it-is behind you is the block in one of my absolute favorites (a UFO for later this year)!!! My mother made a box full of that block. She was a FABULOUS quilter (perfect piecer and hand quilter) until her eyes and arthritis caused her to retire from it. So, she gave me the box of blocks to put together as I please when I get to is. So it’s on my 2019 list. I have the page from the magazine where she first saw it hanging on my design wall because I don’t like the layout in the photo but I’m staring at the block from time to time deciding what I think I’ll do with it. Hopefully, I’ll be showing it off in a few months. She gave me 2 (possibly 3) boxes of blocks to assemble, and the other one is even more special to me….it’s going to take a lot of time and patience and education to do it justice, so it may not get done this year…not until I’m confident in the skills I need to do it right. If I ever have a slow week (or when I get to it in my UFO closet) I’ll give you a sneak peek. That’s what you get for not showing us your jelly roll pattern!!!
    Have a great week.

    1. The quilt behind me is from one of Jennifer’s quilt-alongs – Paper Piecing Vintage. I made two of them, the smaller one behind me (6″ blocks) and a larger one (12″ blocks) in teal, black and white that I gave to my oncologist and is hanging in her office.

  5. I really love your new glasses, and Jen’s right, they look great with your new haircut! And is that an elderly kitty mraow from Lilith in the background?

    I really love the idea of the double sided quilt. What a great way to kill two ufo birds in one!
