What Do You Think?!?!??

This is my version of a Gee's Bend Quilt called "Coat of Many Colors".  I saw a scrap version (like mine) on Pinterest.  I love it!  It is comprised of 2 x 4.5 inch rectangles and is sewn together with Y seams.  I have gotten the "hang" of it so the going is much faster.  It actually takes more time to cut the rectangles than it does to sew them together.  This is a "long term" project, since I really am going to have to get back to my "shirt" quilt, but I do need something to break the "sameness" of working on just one quilt.  I don't think this will be a bed size quilt though, more a large lap size.  This will be the last quilt I make with these particular scraps though (this will be the fourth one I think). After a while, the quilts all sorta look alike, so after this quilt, I will discard what I have left and start over.  I am already discarding the small pieces I have left from cutting the rectangles and am not feeling the least bit guilty about it either.

I have finished my "African Abacus".  I forgot to take a picture of that, and right now don't want to go back downstairs to do so, so I will post tomorrow.  I am currently quilting one of only two quilts I have left for Diane, so after I finish the one on the frame, I will load Abacus on and quilt it.

I have also finished quilting two baby quilts for donation and just need to bind them (I am doing so by machine), so although I haven't been blogging, I have been busy.  I have one more baby quilt to quilt and bind before the next guild meeting and then I will past those on.  I think I will stop for a while since that will make 20 I think I have made and donated.

Well, just wanted to check in!  Have a great remainder of the week!
