Weekly update (part 2): It all adds up!

Q/B/L (quilted, bound, and labeled)!  "It All Adds Up" is my November One Monthly Goal project and I finished it November 5.

It's also my entry in the Charming Plus quiltalong.

It's 48 x 57 and used 4-1/2 yards, all from my stash.

11/25/16:  HERE is the link to the November OMG Finish page! 
 Here's the pieced back. The print on the bottom is a 1960's/70's vintage piece.
  I've wanted to try a geometric "modern" quilting design. This worked out nicely (and was easy).

A woman who attended the Zion Woman's Club bunco fundraiser in mid-October learned I am a quilter. She contacted me this week asking if I had any quilts for sale.  We arranged to meet on Wednesday afternoon. I took a large tote filled with unspoken-for quilts and two flimsies.  She bought Tumalo Trail and Confetti Batik . (Cash sale: no PayPal fee, no shipping.)

I donated Red Rails #3 to the raffle at Thursday's Corporate Community Spelling Bee.  I was a speller, too -- our team came in second. We got a word that neither my teammates nor I had ever, ever heard of.  As the Cubs say, wait till next year!

Here's the weekly link up:

Wow You are really on top of that OMG! Congratulations. Did you read to the bottom of the October OMG post. I surmise that Heidi is having wrist problems and can't do much sewing and computing for the time being. She has moved the OMG to Patty at Elm Street Quilts. http://www.elmstreetquilts.com/p/omg-one-monthly-goal.html is the main page for it. I need to go over there and list my Nov. goal. (I usually do it during the end of the month finish rather than make two posts...) I may have finished my goal already. I have to see what I actually said. Congratulations on the quilts.

That plus quilt is fantastic! What a great use for the vintage fabric. It works so well. And congrats on the sale!

Ramona said...

I haven't been a fan of the "Plus" pattern until now. Using the different size plus signs really makes yours interesting. Congrats! on your finish.
