Some of these blocks were photographed with my son's iphone on a previous post and didn't make very good pics, so let's start anew.
With this one.
Quilter's cache site a long time ago. As you can see, I have to re-size the trapezoid pieces and also change one of the beige. I am not in love with this low contrast. It is a flannel quilt that will have to wait a little longer to get done.
These were also photographed (badly) with the phone and some were added since then.
Sue Garman's blog last year. (You have to scroll almost to the bottom of the page to see the quilt.) I think it is soooo lovely. Anyone knows the name of this block? I keep calling it Sue Garman' antique block. Not sure she would appreciate that?!! Sorry Sue.
I started to put some 1.5 inch squares together to make some 9 patch blocks.
I also gave the string blocks a trial run. I like do these too. (There's a story behind these which I will tell in another post.)
Civic War Quilts blog a while back, so I made one and ... well, not sure ... yet!
I started to play with this block (which actually was the first one of the lot) and I have abandoned it for Sue Garman's antique blocks. They are much more fun to do. :c)
I am also boning shirts and I have learned something on Pinterest. You can make little pockets/bags with the cuffs of men's shirts to store little treasures, jewelry, medications.
And then Lori from Humble Quilts surprised us with a Cascadia quiltalong MYSTERY doll quilt! Who can resist? I caved! :^D Here is part 1.
Onto another note;
** The sewing room re-organizing is not completed but it is SOOOO much better. The shelves screwed to the walls were removed to de-clutter the house when we first put it up for sale. Since then, my stash was stuffed into bins. It is such a chore to pick fabric from bins. This weekend, while getting the house ready for winter, I decided to remove the books from the book unit and put THEM in the bins. I finally got my fabric in plain view! YES Ma'm!! It is so much easier.
** Didn't touch the Dresden plates blocks.
** No, the chair is not finished either.
** and I've got the flu. (Thank God for Tylenol!!) I'll be making soup (again) for diner ... maybe some pumpkin soup? Sounds good to me!
Linking to Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.
Hope you have a better day than I do and some sewing time too.
Until next time...
