Another day, another project. ;o)
No sooner did I take the "Pop Star" quilt top off my design wall for basting, then I brought out the crazy-9-patch blocks for my ManDarin quilt. I pieced these blocks just over a year ago and then they were put away when my hubby decided he wanted to design something to go with them. His plans have changed, so I'm going ahead towards a solo finish for this quilt.
I have 7 sets of 9 blocks, which is a pretty good start for a quilt. Today, I trimmed them square at 7.5" and began working on a layout with no sashing or borders. Yay!
Knowing how much my hubby likes quilts large enough for him to wrap up in (whether he's on the computer or watching a movie), I'm going to need to make a few more blocks. I think a quilt that's 8 blocks by 10, should do the trick (and will fill in the gaps on the design wall - some of which you can see below). More orange blocks are in the works. My hubby is already loving the look of his quilt and I'm excited to finally be closing in on a finish.
The ManDarin quilt also happens to be on my Finish-A-Long list for the first quarter of this year - the list which has me aiming to finish 5 quilts before the end of this month.
How am I doing? Two quilts done and 3 to go!
