What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

I've been sewing on the kits I put together a few weeks ago.  Kind of avoiding starting the embroidery phase of the garland on the applique Christmas quilt. I'm  not excited about doing more pine branches, but it has to be done eventually. 

In the meantime I stitched this one, another Kim Brackett design.  They sure do go together quickly when everything is already cut out.  Initially I didn't have sashing but it just felt kind of "eh".  The dark sashing and fun rainbow border is exactly what it needed.  This block is SUPER simple too.  It is just a 4x4 square with 2 corners sewn snowball style, a 2x4 contrast strip and a 2x6 white strip.   Put 4 together and that's the block.  Another one for the "to be quilted" stack.

I finally got around to cutting out my test block for the double wedding ring king sized quilt for my cousin that got married last July. These fabrics were pulled out of the scrap bin. I purchased all new fabrics for the real quilt. Think blues and greens in bottle glass colors on the beach and a light sand beige background all batiks. I hope to sew this up on Monday. I found the template and video to make it on Donna Jordan's website.

The green for my test block uses this screaming lime green from the quilt I quilted last week. This was a very old boxed squares swap from I pieced the top at a retreat years ago. I just need to hand sew the binding to the back and make a label.

I’m at retreat, and working hard on my Dear Jane! 
this is what is on the wall……

It is coming along!

I have more blocks done in a second notebook.  But I have been adding the 1” cut sashing and getting rows and parts of rows connected!

still have about 35 blocks/triangles to finish.  But coming along!

I am making good progress!  It feels good to finally get some row together with the 1” cut sashing pieces!

I have a goal to finish by the end of the year.
