String blocks for December

String blocks for December

My right foot is on the mend after bunion surgery (November 22 and re-done December 2).  I can sew left-footed, though I didn’t realize how much I move around to get fabric from the shelf, stand at the cutting table, going over to the ironing board, sitting down to sew.  A bounty of strips given away at the guild holiday party this week provided more than enough for this month’s block. The pieced strips are a fun accent. Thanks again,...

Purple Diamonds

In late November, my mother, aunt, and I threw a baby shower for my little sister, who is due in January.  I knew I wanted to make her a baby quilt, and had even earmarked the Split 9-Patch blocks for it.  With my visiting mother-in-law minding her grandsons, I was able to make this quilt in three days, the week of the shower.  My sister got all weepy when she opened the package.  I don’t know why – I’d warned her I would be giving her a baby quilt at some point! So, thank you everyone for the lovely blocks that made a...

Barn door blocks- now two tops

Barn door blocks- now two tops

I have made two tops out of my Barn Door blocks and have a few to use on the back of the larger. I played with two different but similar settings- both on point- but one with and one without sashing. The smaller will probably be donated to my guild’s comforters program. We donate 500 comforters of various sizes to a huge variety of charities. Thanks to all for such lovely blocks, Teresa  ...
