One finish (sort of) and quite a few blocks done this week. The long weekend helped, although as usual, I didn't get as much done as I'd like.
With the border and the quilting, although not with the binding yet. Tomorrow, perhaps.
It looks better than I dreamed it might! And so much grateful thanks to Jo of Thirroul Custom Quilting for pushing it to the top of her to-do list for urgency!
Work in Progress
Books And Blocks Bee
Finally having my 99 Modern Blocks book, I could start on this!
tessophia wanted the Boxed In block by Faith Jones in the same kinds of colours as the example in the book:
So there's a couple of the Sanctuary collection by Patty Young, a couple of the Terrain collection by Kate Spain, a Secret Garden fabric by Sandi Henderson, and a couple of patterned colours from my stash.
Spin The Bobbin is next and she wants the Selvage Strings block in patriotic colours:
My collection of fabrics doesn't feel quite right. Maybe it's because there's not enough white in it? Hm.
No pics for this one.
I'm not sure I particularly like the way I've done this quilt, but I don't really have any alternative options since I'm out of fabric. As it is, I accidentally cut up the fabric for the binding! D'oh! I'll have to go back and get more.
I need to lay it out and sew it. Maybe tomorrow...
New York Beauty
Finally got this party started! I did the fabric cutting on Saturday and started putting it all together that night!
So far, there are two Block 0s, one block 1, and one block 5!
And blocks 7&8 have some of their fabric pieces, but I still have to hunt up the rest. And print out their patterns...
Festival of HSTs
Project 1: a cover for my Sony Reader!
I've been thinking of doing this for ages, but I never got to it until now.
Some assembly still required...
Behind Door Number 2 we have Japanese squares!
I have no idea what I'm doing with these. I could put together enough to make a tote bag, perhaps? Or perhaps very big mug rugs? I'm not much of a one for mini quilts: I prefer bed-sized ones.
But they sure are elegant!
Still nothing on:
- Birthday Blocks (for my birthday block swap)
- Disappearing Harvest Squares (needs binding)
So go forth and check out what's going down at the linky-party over at Freshly Pieced!
