What’s up – 3.26.19

I have made some real progress on my projects lately. Maybe it is because I haven’t had to shovel snow or deal with cold temperatures lately. In fact, we might even get to be over 60 degrees this week. I still have snow in my backyard but I think that maybe spring is here.

Sometimes, when I am hesitant on working on a project I have to step back. It seems as though this quilt has been telling me that it isn’t ready for borders. Something is missing. Well, after looking at the quilt center for awhile I figured it out. It needs a few more geese in the lower right hand corner.

Floral Rails

Over the past couple of weeks I was able to sew the rows together and add the borders. Yeah ! I will do a post soon to show you the finished quilt top.

Another quilt top is done. Borders have been added and once I take a good photo I will do a separate post.

hourglass rows

The blocks have been sewn into rows and now I am sewing the rows together. It has a lot of seams to match but is coming along nicely.

I have had these two matching fabrics for ages and didn’t know what to do with them until I found the free ‘Modern Puzzle’ quilt pattern by Christa Watson. Click on her links so you can download the PDF. Christa’s pattern uses jelly rolls but I had yardage so I did strip sets. I added some beige fabric and starting sewing. This went together VERY EASY. I might have to make a more scrappy version some day.

Of course, these aren’t my only projects. I am also working on two charity quilts. The patterns are easy and it has been fun to work on something that goes together quickly.

How are your projects coming along ?
