Quilt Stuff

Hallelujah! Blogger loaded my pictures without tipping them. Thank you, Blogger!

First up is the quilt-for-hire that I just finished. Its owner has a second quilt waiting for my attention, so I should be getting to that today. Goals are good. I also pick up another quilt-for-hire in a couple of hours.

In addition to the for-hire work, I've actually found some time to spend on my Hoffman Challenge. Here's another clue to add to the clues posted last week. Have you figured it out yet?

I'm actually getting to the point where the top is close to finished. I spent a couple of hours on it yesterday. I haven't decided whether to use appliqué or reverse appliqué for the next step - appliqué would be SO much easier, reverse appliqué would be more effective...

Since this is a prototype, and I'm working on a pressing deadline, I suppose I've just made my choice. Easier = Faster, and Faster = Better at this stage of the game. When I do the "real" quilt, I'll do reverse appliqué. But not this time.

Well, I guess that about wraps it up for today. I'm trying to be a good blogger, so far, so good for the month of June, eh?

Can't wait to see your Hoffman Challenge piece. I am making one too for the first time. I love this challenge fabric. Thanks for the little clues.
