Rachel’s Blocks

Rachel’s Blocks

Rachel was having problems posting last night, but managed to upload a photo of her 10 beautiful blocks.  (9 for chances, one donated to the pot).  It looks like we’ll have enough blocks for THREE WINNERS this month. Rachel has the same problem as has happened to a few people (including me). I think the issue is the resolution/size of your image.  When I look to try to figure out why, the images are usually really large (this one, before I resized it was 2.8 megabytes.) It slows things down enough that it might seem like it’s not...

Busy, busy, busy

Busy, busy, busy

Only 2 from me for donation as I recently made a quilt with the express purpose of using up every scrap in my stash of cream material smaller than a half yard.

I have been quite busy with my Plaid 9Patch win. There will be 8 rows of 7 blocks and there are narrow black borders between each one. Trying to match 8 points along every edge was a bit daunting and had I chosen that method, it is likely I still would be looking for the first two that matched up. Here is a peek at the middle of where I am right now, just before sewing the 4th row onto it....

Triangle Crazy

Triangle Crazy

It’s been a while since I played along and hope I remember how to post!  I love making triangles with the Tri/Recs Ruler set.  So much fun!  Here are my 3 blocks.  I would have made more but have limited reds in my scrap basket. I thought I’d share a triangle quilt I finished recently using homespuns of which I have quite a collection.  I quilted it with straight line quilting by superimposing a triangle grid on the top.  Thanks for reading!...
