I have finished the pieces for the flimsy we are making for our local 2012 quilting class in Edwards taught by Victoria Vander Linden.

As a side note about this teacher and my friend, Vic is a very accomplished quilter of over 30 years and a google search turned up very little information which shows, that not everything is on the web just yet.  I did find a flattering article in the  AgriNews(2005), an article in the Orléans Star(2012) about the tremendous number of community quilts given to the Eastern Ottawa Resource Senior Centre (an effort that Vic spearheaded) and the card that advertises this years Common Threads Quilt Guild show at the RA Centre in Ottawa features three blocks from a delightful bunny quilt she made recently.  In case, by the time you read this post, if the card isn’t shown at the site anymore, I captured it to show the bunny blocks.

Anyways… I changed the very centre of this section to match all the other background in the centre (previous version) and I’m done the 9p areas that will be on either side of the centre.  There are two of those.  And I am finally finished all the rows for this flimsy.  The green rows will be above the centre star flanked by 9ps and the brown rows will be below.  The sashing is the green shown.

Now: making all the rows equal lengths and the cutting & attaching of the  sashing.  Then I’ll think about the outside border.

I had a bit of a hard time keeping at this one.  It was hard to visualize.  I have an easier time if I visualize the finished flimsy first and then put the parts together.

I’m looking forward to a new feel to the bedroom though.  It’ll be a bit more summer-y.  The quilt on the bed right now is another one we did in Vic’s classes a few years back.  This one was hand quilted. My favourite section is the flying geese.  DH likes the log cabins.  I am linking up to The Needle and Thread Network.  The button is on the right – the big red one.  Go see what everyone else it up to!

    congrats on your finish!

  4. Lovely work! I am inspired by your ‘strippy’ pieced quilt. It would be a great way to use up assorted scraps and single blocks, wouldn’t it? :-)

    This quilt is fabulous! I love the row by row look. It really gives the quilt a distinctive look.

    I love how the row-setting shows off those traditional blocks in a new way, very nice work.
