Weekly check in

Hi Friends! I was finally reacquainted with my Bernina this morning. I was able to get March's "Civil War Tribute" blocks done. There are 2@ 18.5" and 2@12.5". These went together pretty easy and no triangle tips were harmed in the process. What a miracle!!
I also made 64 HST's for this months "Civil War Chronicles" BOM but I forgot to take a picture of them. This month I used Triangulations and it was so much easier.
I finished my "Kitchen Fairy" BOM this week too.
I also finished 20 more Klosjes this week. That brings my total to 75. I will decide what to do when I reach 200. Either I make something with the 200 or I make more.
I also gathered all the fabrics for the "Cracked Pots" quilt. Ranette posted her fabrics here.

That's it for this week. My goal this week is to stitch the rest of the "Vintage Valentine" medallion. I am about 1/2 way there!! I also hope to get started on my Stitch-a-long blocks.

Have a great week!!!

Fabulous Civil War blocks and I love your kitchen fairy. I've not made a klosje in ages, I should get back to those. Hope you manage to finish your Vintage Valentine block this week.

You are turning those Klosjes out fast. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

I really love your fabrics for Cracked Pots...like I might change my mind on mine...lol...not really, but I do love a red, white/tan and blue quilt.

I cannot believe you have 75 Klosjes already! And they are so pretty too.

The CWT blocks are pretty and I wouldn't have thought they were that big!

I need to try Triangulations sometime soon.

I love the little kitchen fairy block...too cute!! It would take me a month to get as much done, but since I can't seem to quit knitting, I'm not getting any quilting finished LOL.

Wow! Another very productive week!! Love those CW blocks. I've got my two big ones done, but not the smaller ones. I forgot all about Triangulations! I think I should get some because those HST are driving me nuts! :o)

The Kitchen Fairy with the measuring cup is a cute design. Is it from a set of blocks? I have never seen it before.

julieQ said...

You are getting so much done!! I think it a special kind of discipline that makes you stick to the monthly projects, it is really not easy...I get distracted on one and just want to go, go, go!!

Robin said...

Fun stuffs! It always feels good to get back to the machine. Sounds like you got a good amount done, too! Those fabrics for the Cracked Pots quilt look happy. :)
