• What’s up – 2.12.19

    Here is an update on some of my ‘work in progress’ projects.


    quilt center
    Flying Geese – I have been working on other projects and unfortunately this one has gone on the back burner for now.

    rail fence
    Floral rail fence – hey…I have figured out the layout. I have gone from square rail fences to making rectangular blocks. The pink you see in the photo is my design wall. You can tell that I will need to fill in the some blank spots.

    star blocks
    Lilac Stars – this is a small quilt of only 20 blocks (4×5) so sewing them into rows didn’t take much time but now I am not sure what to do for a border.

    Leader Ender Hourglass – this has been my leader ender project for awhile and I finally have enough blocks to start working on a layout for a small quilt.

    How are your projects coming along?

    It seems that I have only been posting lately when I am showing you a finished quilt top. I decided to switch it up and try (emphasis on TRY) to post more often and give you updates on my projects. Here are a few that I am working on.

    quilt center
    Flying Geese – You saw this back in December. You can read more here about the blocks. I have made progress and the quilt center is done. It ended up longer than I wanted but I like the layout so now I have to figure out the side borders. The bad news is that I have a limited amount of the navy blue background fabric left to use.

    Rail fence blocks – this started out as a simple rail fence blocks that I could have set in either a stair step or chevron layout. BUT…and you know there was a but….but that seemed to predictable. I started moving the blocks around and thinking of how I could spice up a layout using these blocks.

    lilac star blocks
    Lilac Star blocks – When I purchased these fabrics I must have thought I was going to make a huge quilt or quilts. Definitely bought more than was needed. Well, I finished French Lilac back 2016 and put the rest of the fabric back on the shelf. It is time to drag them out and have some fun. I love how the star points are floating and there is the bonus of not having to worry about matching points.

    How are your projects coming along?
