Quilt top of May Rail Variations blocks

Quilt top of May Rail Variations blocks

Hi everyone! Here is my finished quilt top of our May Rail Fence Variations blocks.  I had intended for the zig-zags to go lengthwise down the quilt, but accidentally laid them out this horizontal orientation at first, and decided I liked it more than the vertical set.   Anyway, I now need to find a back for this, and get quilting! Many thanks to the ladies who sent all these pretty blocks to use! One question for the group- if/when you enter...

The perils of deciding to sit out a month

Ladies,  I have discovered the perils of deciding my plate was just a little too full this month and skipping the basket blocks.  I nearly forgot to send my California Poppies block off to Nann!  It’s in the mail today, you should have it early next week.  Sorry!   Instead, I was busy sewing together my Rail Fence variation blocks.  I’m almost to the flimsy stage, I’ll show it off when I get it there, it might take me a lot...

A California Poppies block

A California Poppies block

Hi, Everyone!   I made myself get my Red Forest blocks mailed off to Su in Michigan before starting one of these bright California Poppies blocks.  I was glad to see that she received them.  However, I was afraid I wouldn’t get anything made this month, as I had an unusually busy August.  However, I got a few quiet hours today to do as I wished, and here it is!  I don’t know if I’ll get any more made, but I guess I have a few...

Blocks arriving, and 4 Summer Reading blocks for donation

Thanks to Cathy K, Julianne, Karen B, Kathie, Kathy S, and Peggy M for the pretty Rail Fence variations that have arrived.  It’s so fun to walk out to my mailbox and find the wonderful soft envelopes of fabric goodness.  I couldn’t resist, I have started laying them out to see how they would look.  Such wildly different fabrics, and they’re blending together so nice!  My children are trying out some alternate arrangements as I...

4 Rail Variation blocks

4 Rail Variation blocks

Hi everyone,  where did the month of May go?  Oh, wait- I’m preparing my kid’s summer plans, work, doctor’s appointments, and poof, there it went.    Anyway, I managed to get 4 Rail Variation blocks made to enter in the drawing – just under the wire!  I hope it’s OK that my blues and greens have been joined by a small amount of other colors. 🙂 Last week (5/24) I sent my Noon&Light blocks off to Karen- hopefully...

4 Susannah blocks from Linda

Hi everyone! Thanks for letting me join Block Lotto, this looks like a lot of fun!  These Susannah blocks are lovely, I was surprised to find I had as many green fabrics as I did.  Just goes to show you I need to be digging around in my stash and scraps more often!   These blocks come together in a jiffy, and were fun to make.  I made 4 of them in fairly short order.  Here they are:...
