I am working on another Tula Pink English Paper Piecing pattern, "Alchemy".  This one is faster working because you are making horizontal rows, not flower or star units.

The picture below shows row 1 and row 2 completed (but not stitched together).  I am currently working on Row 3, which is a real PITA.  It's boring.  It is ginormous flower units ... 5 rounds, if I remember correctly.  There are 6 of them in the row and they fit into the "arches" of row 2 (the pink row in the picture).

I’m trying to beat the humidity by working in the sewing room today.  

My newest strategy is to work on each of my 3 current quilting projects each day.  I have to admit it is more enjoyable this way.

 I’m working on an Appliqué Quilt, a scrappy quilt and a hexagon grandma’s garden quilt. 
And there is no rush on any of these quilts to be completed.  

Enjoying the process it the most important part.

So, I finished a panel quilt, 

here it is before quilting and binding!

I also have a set of retreat lotto blocks into a top.  It needs trimming, and borders.

I’m so impressed!  Did you have a pattern for the layout?  I never know how to arrange the blocks.  ‍??


From: bornblesse2


No pattern, I just put them on point.  But I added sashing to make it larger.   The construction with the sashing had me going for a bit….as it has been a longtime since I have done on point.

oh, for cutting the side and corner triangles, I use the Marti Mitchell ruler!   It makes it so much easier!  I think there are other brands of rulers that do the same or similar thing!
