and you know what that means . . . It's Eventide Update Day!!
First up, my progress . . . .
Here's the center of my project, all laid out on my living room floor.
I sure struggled with the perfect combination and placement of those blue star points, but I could not be happier with how it's all coming together.
Next, creating those hour glass blocks for the inner border.
When Carrie talked about this quilt at class, she mentioned that when she was making her hour glass units for the inner border, she thought the solid red alone looked too bold, so she made her units using two different reds, a red solid and red floral print.
This is a closeup of Carrie's inner border.
Here's Deb's latest picture of her progress.
Deb says, "
Deb, I just love the pop of color from your Ohio Star blocks, they look great with your large Ohio Star fabrics.
We have some bloggers making great progress too:
Mary Lou started working on Eventide from a newly organized sewing room plus her chicks came, but she still managed to finished all her large quarter square triangles and start on the Ohio Star blocks. Mary Lou has also had the added distraction of a husband home on leave, but he's back in Afghanistan now, thanks Mary Lou to you and your husband for the sacrifices you are making for us all.
Bea has completed the center of her quilt and is also working on her inner border units.
Becky has the most beautiful stack of French General fabric just waiting to be cut and pieced.
Carol only has 8 more Ohio Star blocks to go.
Gretchen has all her center Ohio Star blocks pieced, hang in there Gretchen, I think you'll make the deadline with time to spare!
Judith has the center portion of her project all pieced too!
Lisa's making great progress!
Nicole's been squeezing in a little time on her Eventide, when she's not been making baby girl onesies, burb clothes, and quilts.
Paula's got a good jump on the pieces of her Ohio Star blocks and a bad case of pneumonia, take care Paula, you still have plenty of time before the parade.
Sharrieboberry's on spring break with her family,have fun and we'll catch you next week!
Shelley's gotten her pattern, her fabric and decided on her color scheme, I think that's the hardest part of the project, it's smooth sailing for you now Shelley.
Sherri's using the same fabric combination that I'm using, except she's swapping the blue for gray.
Sinta's been working real hard on the perfect combination for her large Ohio Stars, but I think she's finally got it!
Linda just got her pattern and will be starting her project soon, she's selected Remembrance by Brannock and Patek.
Great Job Everyone!
