I've been working on this project in between other activities for the past few weeks. I stayed with no plan, just an intention to make pluses using as many different fabrics as I could.
There are over 800 pieces in this little quilt, and over 175 different fabrics. I think I managed my intent of not repeating any fabric, except a couple of the single squares at the end. I pretty much ran out of fabric options in my scrap bin by the time I had this finished.
Now it just needs a backing and I can finish the up this donation quilt. I'm tempted to make a companion from 5" squares (this one is 2.5" squares), but I think I need a break from this pattern first.

I have a new project on the go tonight, after a dry spell for the past few weeks. Using the lovely colour of the year - Highlight - from Kona to make a drunkards path variation.
One might think this bright yellow would be enough to keep me awake, but that isn't turning out to be the case. So I won't be getting as much done tonight as I had hoped to do, but it is nice to be working on something new.

I've been a bit remiss in my blogging lately. Mostly because my long arm business has taken off and is keeping me quite busy. That's a good thing, but has made it hard to carve out blogging time. So I've decided to try something new - blogging through email. This will hopefully make it easier for me to link pictures to my posts, without having to download them from my camera every time. So this post is an experiment :)
A couple of weeks ago the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild participated in a quilt show. We displayed several quilts from our members, to showcase modern quilting for visitors to the show.
This quilt was my favourite, and i think might be in my list of future projects.

I did finish the border on my house quilt (and I see I never showed a photo of that, so here it is).
One Monthly Goal, I think I will try to find time to finish the border on the companion star quilt. I have a plan, I have the fabric. I just need to make a couple of dozen flying geese to get started.

The original fabrics are very traditional, and there are only enough for a wall hanging (about 100 pieces), so I pulled a bunch more in matching colours from my stash in more modern designs. I hope that will spruce it up a bit.
I wrote this up and posted it. And it wasn't until I went looking for the Design Wall Monday post on Judy's blog that I realized it is in fact Tuesday today. Early in the week, and I've already lost a day :)
