In July I did not finish a single quilt. Not one. It has been a long time since my quilting productivity has been this poor. To help move things along, I am once again signing up with OMG (One Monthly Goal) at Elm Street Quilts for a little incentive. My August 2020 OMG is Plaid-ish.
Through a Bonnie Hunter retreat I met a couple of women from Minnesota who have become my quilting besties. We get together as frequently as we can to visit and sew. In June, a trip to Minneapolis to help our daughter move led to a short visit with these friends. We made the most of our appropriate quarantine for that visit and they followed me home to sew here for a few days (not nearly long enough!). Sometimes, we select a common project for these little retreats. This time we picked two and Plaid-ish was one of them. Since I did not have a lot of time for cutting I used three colors to make the “plaid” instead of value. I’m happy with the way it turned out and best of all, I was able to use scraps from a previous project.
The Plaid-ish pattern is available free from Kitchen Table Quilts. There are hundreds of Plaid-ish quilts on Instagram at #plaidishquilt if you want some inspiration to make your own.
This is not a larqe quilt so it should be no problem to get it quilted in time to meet the August 2020 OMG deadline. Of course I said that about the lap quilt that just spent 38 days on the frame.
