Pageant Highlight Reel / Beauties Pageant 130

Happy Friday, friends! I am making good progress on my ombre hexies, the project I updated you on last week. It’s really satisfying to work on something that’s been on the back burner for as long as those hexagons have been. Finishing a WIP is almost always an easier process than I think it will be. Somehow the tasks at hand seem bigger and more complicated when left to my memory for a year (or two!).

I won’t have any new pictures to share until I get started with the quilting, so I thought we could take a few minutes to look at some of the beauties you have completed recently ...

First up, at the top of the post, is Quilting Gail’s finish for the Stay at Home Round Robin. This event, hosted by Gail and six other bloggers, wrapped up last month, and this link will take you to a parade of all the finishes, from both organizers and participants. Spoiler alert: Everyone had a great time sewing their project, and another round robin is scheduled for January 2022!

Last month, Vasudha, of Storied Quilts, unveiled her Kaleidoscope Churn. This original design was included in the summer issue of Quilter’s World. It was the first time a pattern from Vasudha was published in a magazine. I am oohing and aahing over every aspect of this project. The complementary colors! The quilting! Congratulations, Vasudha, on a beautiful finish and the milestone accomplishment as a designer.

Now it’s your turn to show us the beauties you’ve finished up in recent weeks. Share your finishes in the linky below!

  3. Hi Michelle! I kept looking at that first photo and thought that looks like Gail's SAHRR piece . . . but it can't be. HAHA! Once I got around to reading it all became clear. Happy Saturday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne
