Strip quilt finished at last

Strip quilt finished at last

I don’t remember when I won these strip blocks but each block is 6.5 inches and had to include one “made strip” in the block. Can you find your block?  I used them all and had to make four extra to get to my needed number. I wanted a larger quilt so I made 6.5 inch blocks of yellow and white to go in between the strip blocks.  While laying the blocks out on the design wall at Elizabeth’s house, Elizabeth’s sharp...

April Block

You might have noticed that two points on one of my April blocks were trimmed off when I squared the blocks.  I decided I couldn’t send them to anyone that way, and so, I removed those two squares and replaced them with new ones; so no more blunted points!  It was a pretty painless repair done while sewing at Elizabeth’s house one afternoon last...

April Blocks

I made these two Night and Light blocks for April. I hope they meet the requirements, the background is yellow but the interior is not totally scrappy.  If they are not scrappy enough, let me know and I’ll keep them for another project.  Since there are quite a few seams in the piece, my advice to sewers is to use a scant 1/4 seam and follow the directions which say to measure each completed unit.  I think the block is lovely and I hope I...

4 March Susannah blocks

4 March Susannah blocks

Here are my four blocks for the March Block Lotto. Half of my family are Michigan State graduates whose colors are green and white so it would be sweet to win these blocks.  They were pretty easy to construct if I had paid attention to the orientation of the dark green and white triangle.  I now have four blades that spin backwards for my parts department...

February Blocks

February Blocks

Robin, I’m hoping these blocks qualify. When I started this month’s block I thought I would only make one block, but after pulling out my box of binding pieces, little leftover patches and 2.5 inch strips, I really got going and made four instead.  These were fun to make. I agree, make your blocks a bit larger and cut them down to 9.5. I also tried to limit the colors and prints in each square so as to make them more...

Barn Quilt

Julie Post is that your barn quilt in the recent (September) AQ Magazine?  If so, I LOVE IT and wondered if the group of barn quilts will be traveling, to maybe the AQS show in Grand Rapids, MI? I would so love to see these quilts in person.  The piecing is extraordinary, the barns whimsical and the quilting wonderfully...
