This weekend I was able to sew Saturday night and most of Sunday. The weekend sure goes fast when your having fun!
First up on the agenda was "S'mores" This is in last months American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. A few friends and I decided to tackle this one together. I am going to making mine BIG. I need a few bed quilts and this will be one of them. I will need 365 square in a square blocks, 12 side triangles and 4 corner triangles. I decided to make one block for each day in the month and 1 side triangle a month. Here are January and February's blocks. I am hoping to have this put together by next January. I have 59 of 365 Square in a Square blocks done, 3 of 12 side blocks and 4 of 4 corner blocks done.
here. She just hammered away at it and finished in record speed. I hope I can have mine done by the summer. I think this will look great on the back of the couch.
I was also able to do this months "Afternoon Delight" blocks. Here are all that I have done so far. So far I have done four applique and two pieced blocks a month. I bought the patterns for these and am using stash. LOVE using up the stash.
I was also able to finish the binding on two quilts. This one is called "Comfort & Joy". I left off the border applique. I could say that I thought the quilt was busy enough but the truth is that I just got lazy. I have to say that I do think I like it without. My quilter did another beautiful job. She is the best and I am so thankful to have her close by.
The last finish is called "Pine Tree Ridge" This is one of the quickest quilts I have ever made. I tried to get closeups of the quilting so you can see what a great job she did.
That's it for this weekend. I am going to kick back and applique a little before I go to bed. Hopefully I will be done by next weekend to show you what I am working on.
I wish you all a wonderful, safe, healthy week.
