and you know what that means. . . .
It's Eventide Update Day !!!
Wow, I can't believe this is the 6th sew along update, where has the time gone! Next week will be the last update before the Eventide Parade on April 5th.
I was waffling on whether to post pictures of the finished projects as they came in, then I decided sure, why not. Hopefully seeing the finished projects before the parade will help and motivate those not quite done, plus, who can see too many pictures of beautiful finished quilts, we'll show them again in the parade.
Deb has finished her Eventide and says,
Great job Deb, those Jo Morton fabrics worked out wonderfully, it's a beauty! And that red inner border, perfect!
So here's my finished Eventide which I have named, "Dancing with the Devil in the Pale Moonlight"
For as much as I struggled with my fabric choices and placement, and worried about my bold red and browns, I could not be happier with how it all came together.
I'm particularly happy with how it takes awhile for the large blue star points to catch your attention. I would have never made this quilt had I not seen it in person, but I'm so glad that I did, I just love it and think it's a wonderful addition to my other quilts, a breath of fresh air!
We have a newcomer to our sew along, Marianne doesn't have a blog, but after reading our updates every week she couldn't sit on the sidelines any longer.
Marianne is using Garden Party by Blackbird Designs for Moda. Another great fabric choice for Eventide!!
I also heard from Peggy R, who doesn't have a blog but does have a finished Eventide! She promised a picture before the parade. Congratulations Peggy, I can hardly wait to see your Eventide made with Gatherings by Moda.
Gayle has finished the center of her project and plans to add two borders, a medium colored border, then a darker colored border, no pictures yet, next week for sure. Gayle has an extra Eventide pattern and would love to pass it along to someone who doesn't have one. The first person to leave a comment asking for the pattern gets it!
The early bird catches the worm, or in this case, Krystena gets the pattern!
Becky is at that tricky point in the project, she has everything all cut out, but is not sure how to sort it all. Hang in there Becky, you'll figure it out! That French General fabric is going to make an amazing Eventide, that fabric can't make an ugly quilt! If you're still struggling, maybe reading Nicole's blog on how she sorted her fabric will help.
Judith has finished her Eventide using Roses the Noel. Judith, it's just lovely! And when I say done, I mean pieced, quilted and bound! She's looking for a new name for her quilt, maybe you'll have a suggestion, she's offering a prize!
Gretchen's made some serious progress on her Eventide using some pretty Fig Tree fabric. Great job Gretchen, your project just sings, "spring".
Bea usually has a Tuesday update, the last time I checked in, she was working on her hour glass units for the inner border.
Brenda's got her Eventide cutting done too!
Sherri's working away on her Eventide pieces for the Ohio Stars, there's just something so appealing about a pile of pretty quarter square triangle blocks, just waiting to be pieced.
Paula started feeling well enough this past week to work on her Eventide, her design wall is full and she has just a few more blocks to piece.
Our other Sherrie has a new portable design wall and the first blocks on it....her Eventide blocks. Great Start Sherrie. You have to go through some amazing pictures of the Dallas Quilt show before you get to her blocks, how great is that!
I'm not sure if Sinta, Nicole, or Lisa have an Eventide update, they've been very busy girls, but they always have something interesting going on so it's definitely worth a stop by their blogs.
We have a winner from last week's update, Paulette, from Sweat Pea Quilting, these latest Schnibbles patterns from Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Company are yours! Send me an email with your mailing address and they will be on the way to you. Thanks so much for following our sew along.
