A Quilting We Will Go…

Yesterday was a fun day – got to spend it working on some quilting projects…

First up:

My Cornish Quilters Charity block is the above star block.  We made this one 12-1/2 inches instead of our normal size which is about 10-1/2 inches.  I made two blocks and they will be going into a quilt for the mother of one of our members.  She furnished the white and we each furnished some sort of blue fabric.  They turned out really nice.

Second up:

From my Class The Craftsy Block of the Month with Amy Gibson

January – Block No. 1  –  Asterisk Block

January – Block No. 2 – Wonky Pound Sign Block

Both of these blocks were a bit of a challenge for me…I am not used to just cutting fabric and adding fabric to it and then cutting again  … but I love the way the blocks turned out.

This will be a scrappy quilt – but each of the fabrics I use will have some orange in them.  The white fabric will be used throughout the quilt.

Girls Night Out…

Last night we had a Girls Night Out at my local quilt shop, Four Pines Quilting.  As always, a good time was had by all…

Brenda worked on her Butterfly quilt – all she has left to do are the borders!

Deb finished her heart wall hanging that we were given as part of our goodie bag…

And, I finished up a quilt that I had brought up from Tennessee six years ago.  The top is all done.

Up close of some of the blocks….

Also finished the last block to a BOM quilt from Tennessee – The Nimble Thimble Quilt Shop.  We moved to New Hampshire the month of the last block and I am just getting around to finishing up the project.  I will be sashing this in a pretty mottled black and then adding a border of a dark pink.  It will be very pretty when finished.  I’ll get it done soon…

It’s Finished…

My beautiful bargello quilt is done!  And, I could not be happier…

It measures 47 inches by 61 inches.  Almost covers my bed – and once I get a pillowcase made from the backing fabric, the large border fabric and the binding/small border fabric – it will look great on the bed.

This was not an easy quilt for me to make – it took a lot of steps to make it – and I’m not usually that patient a person…but, I hung in there because it was looking beautiful and I knew the end result would be worth it!
