Progress!!!

On the last Sunday of the month, one of my sewing buddies hosts a quilting day at her home. She mainly does it as a few of the gals are making scrap quilts to use up some of their fabric stash. I come along to work on my projects (and to eat!). I don't do scrap quilts. I am just not a random kind of person. Everything has to have a plan and an order. Putting a scrap quilt together makes me nervous, "there is a blue next to a blue! OMG! Too many lights together and the darks are all bunched up in that corner!". Phew!

So, this past Sunday I took my Blocks of the Month to work on and I FINISHED the last three!!! Yea!!!!!!! Here they are!!!!








I only had a problem with one of the blocks. I had cut one of the squares too small. Since I didn't have hardly any of the fabric left, I had to piece it with a teeny tiny seam. If you can see it you are looking too hard!


Now I have to work on the sashing, quilt it, bind it and on to the next project!

Yea!!!

Miss Jean! Your blocks are beautiful but you must live on the wild side. Throw all caution to the wind and try out a scrap quilt LOL!

What a great quilt this will make - I love pieces that have been pieced.

We have beautiful Scottie puppies over our way!

Miss Jean, I happen to be making a string quilt for some friends as a farewell gift. I get what you mean about all the not going together but in the end it does. I have a white strip that provides some routine and resting place for all the wild stuff. I am enjoying your beautiful quilts
