What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

I'm getting ready to start a new forever project....   My needle turn is getting near the end, only 4 more small sections to go.  

I've been thinking about trying Aunt Millie's Garden, at least 4 blocks but not the entire quilt.  And use the plaid for background with red applique.  Am I crazy?  - never mind -  don't answer that.  I am going to cut out the pieces for 1 block and look at it for a while.  I want to try and mix applique with some pieced blocks but am struggling a little to envision it - need to go pintrest hunting.  This will eventually be for my red loving daughter.

Dee we are all crazy. If you will enjoy working with the pattern and those fabrics the j..ump in. Since the pandemic I have really gotten back to applique. I love the slow hand stitching and organic shapes.

Thank you.  I have lots of time! No husband, kids are grown and can sew any time/place in the house I want. It makes a huge difference when you don’t have to deal with other things.  Also, a lot of my quilts are made using Leader/Enders, So they can be put together pretty quickly.

I love your house quilt.  Very bright and cheerful. It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!!

LOL1  I never even thought of Mr Rogers!  I do lots of leader/ender quilts too.  Sometimes not sure which project is the leader/ender or the real one.

Thanks.  There are patterns out there but I just looked at a picture and made it up myself.  You are right. The roof is a 2.5 X 4.5 inch FG.  The rectangle right under the roof is 1.5 X 4.5.  and I'm pretty sure the walls are 3    1.5 X 2.5 inch rectangle.  They were kind of like eating potato chips--you just kept wanting to make one more.
