The first one is a very traditional quilt that I started as a teaching piece when I was involved with a basic quilting group at the local seniors' centre. It's a pattern that I found on the internet, and I have no idea to who to credit with the design. I found it in a box with all of the pieces cut and some scribbled instructions telling me that there were 16 squares. Okay, I thought, just about the right size for a charity quilt, and got to work. However by the time it was finished, I had 24 squares, and a quilt big enough to cover our twin size spare bed. There is no way I can quilt this in my very limited work area, so I'm going to have to find a long armer that I trust, as the one I've used for years has retired. Sorry, but for some reason the picture is sideways. The quilt is 86" by 58 1/2", but, unfortunately, not quite square. I don't think I'm going to worry about that.
The second one is one that I've mentioned before. After over a year of work, I've finally got my hand pieced hexie quilt to the size I want. there are still a couple of fill-ins needed for the edge but the bulk of it is done. I'm glad to see the end of it, but now the question will be whether I can mange to quilt this in my work space. It's a little larger than any I've done before, but I'm thinking of entering it in a judged show, so would prefer that it all be my own work. It's about 48 by 65 inches, a nice lap quilt size, but big enough for the category I'm looking at.
