Another Lantern Quilt

This is another Lantern Quilt made in the Morning Out class last winter.
I used so many tools on this quilt it was getting ridiculous.
  • straight edge
  • large circle template
  • large oval template
  • weird assorted curves template
  • 1 1/2" straight line stencil
  • chalk pounce pad
  • tailors chalk
  • tape measure
  • and of course, the dreaded stitch ripper

I used a variegated thread in the lantern blocks and the borders.

The back is sooo pretty.

The last few days I've been trapped in the office working on the next quilt for Morning Out.  I took an afternoon/evening off and went out with a couple of my Red Hat gals to see The King's Speech.  Excellent movie!  The theatre was so quiet at some points I didn't dare stick my hand in the licorice bag.  Today I'm revising my UFO lists (OMG, that I even have more than one list.  sheesh.) so I can register with Judy Laquidara for a monthly UFO completion challenge.  I don't know if I can complete one per month, but I'll give it the old college try.

  1. If you don't want to sign up to that list, there is Myra's PhD challenge (Projects Half Done) but the cut off for signing up is today. She lives in Winnipeg.
    Good luck. I keep making lists of my UFOs and I don't worry about them. As long as something gets crossed off some day...
