So the last time I blogged about my tribute quilt to the Infinite Variety Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts Show, held in New York this spring, I was working on snowballs.
The Red and White Quilt show had several snowball quilts but two caught my eye,
this one, because I liked the border and LOVED the quilting. This was quilt 200 and hung in the interior bottom of Pavilion 5.

And this one,
see how the quilter took one 9 patch block and swapped the position of the red and white fabric to make that little interesting design in the top right part of the quilt. I just love that little something something. Not that I could EVER do anything like that, just a little out of my comfort zone. I would be too afraid everyone who looked at my quilt would say, "Did you notice Thelma made a mistake in her quilt!"
This is quilt 304 and hung in the exterior top of Pavilion 13.
Here's my snowball tribute quilt.
Here's where I am right now, 4 mini quilts for a total of 1,640 pieces.
I need to change up some sizes on my next few quilts to give the impression of depth.
I know this project just must have some log cabin blocks and am thinking some little ones would maybe look good between some of the mini quilts.
This one finished at 2 5/8". I think it's an adorable block but am not sure I'm up for making 100 of them!
I would love to have this quilt done by the end of the month, yes THIS month. I'm not coming out and actually saying it's a goal, but it sure would be nice.
Here's what's next. . . .
a few of these school house blocks, I'm thinking mine need to be around 4 1/2 inches. Don't you just love the vintage feel of these blocks? This a block I don't see in new patterns at all, I think it's the perfect project to work on while I make up my mind about those log cabin blocks.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, it's going to be a typical July weekend here, which translates into meals of nothing but salads and sandwiches, it's too hot to cook! Thankfully it's never too hot to sew!!
