Tessellations & PHD Report

I went to the guild sew day over the weekend and added to my Tessellations quilt. Another guild member who also took the class had hers almost complete. She went truly scrappy. I can't cede enough control to do that. 😬 I went with mostly coordinated fabrics.  Here's my progress so far.

It's a fun quilt to work on because you don't have to think a ton other than making sure your colors are lined up correctly from block to block. The worst part is spinning the seam intersections. For some reason I always struggle with that, though it is so satisfying when it works out correctly.

I also cut out a quilt for a QAL that my daughter recolored. She helped me pick fabrics to meet her vision. We had everything but background. We bought that fabric since we couldn't agree on any from my stash. 

I will need to make a bunch of HST in the next two weeks. I'm determined to stay on top of this one.

Speaking of staying on top of things, here is my PHD report for March. I completed one more project toward my "degree" this month.

I've been busy quilting Jeri's quilts. The first one is called Algorithm. I think she said it's a GE Designs pattern. She picked Champagne Bubbles for the quilting.

Next is her flying geese quilt, quilted with Good Vibrations.

Finally, her Color Block Postage Stamp quilt, quilted with tiny scale Squatty Squared.

I am fully binding all three of these, so that's what I'll continue working on this week, along with more quilting hopefully. I have a bunch of appointments this week that are making working a challenge.

I've also been working more on cleaning up our house prior to the family invasion this weekend. The bedroom is completed. We have a few more things to move out of the way in the living room and need to hang a towel bar in the bathroom for them. Then it's just doing a regular cleaning of everything and we should be as ready as we can be. 

Take care, and I'll see you Monday for April's OMG linkup and then my regular post on Wednesday.

  1. Ever since I stumbled on Escher as a child, I have been fascinated by tessellation. So, needless to say your quilt caught my eye. Great work keeping track of the next half of the block for the next row.

    1. Thanks! Gyleen's pattern makes it pretty easy to stay organized.

  2. Your tessellation quilt is looking fabulous! Congratulations on another finish for March; you are right on track for the PHD in 2024.

  3. Another great collection of quilts on your table this week. I love the fabrics you two have chosen. Thank you for sharing in Put your foot down.
