What’s up – 3.05.19

Well, it has been a few weeks since the last update and I had hoped for more progress on my projects but, instead, I started another quilt. Pinterest is a wonderful source for inspiration but can also distract you from your current ideas. There are SOOOOO many ideas on-line that you just HAVE to make. It seems like I have been playing with new ideas and not finishing up the old ones.

 

quilt center
The flying geese quilt is still missing the side borders. This is one of those cases where I thought I had enough background fabric UNTIL I changed the design. I have done some calculations and I might have just enough of the solid navy fabric but I need to make careful cuts.

Floral Rails
The blocks have been sewn into rows and I am working on adding the borders. Unfortunately, I don’t have a long enough piece of the border fabric to use for the side borders. Are you sensing a theme? The borders will have to be pieced. Not a big deal – it will look fine.

lilac star rows
My star blocks are up on my design wall sewn into rows. They might be slightly wrinkled but it gives you a look at the quilt center. Maybe now I will be get motivated to add the borders.

layout
Here is my idea for the layout of my leader ender hourglass blocks. I was inspired by a Red Pepper’s quilt . When you look at the my photo you can see that I arranged the hourglass blocks slightly different. The color section of each hourglass unit surrounds the rail fence to form a block. The pink area (design wall) will end up being a variety of plain 3″ finished beige squares.

How are your projects coming along?
