    Lots of quilting

    Ribet quilt top is finished! WOOHOO!!!! I think it is too cute. Now I need to get the backing and batting.

    Finished block #6 for Pretty ‘n’ Pink. I’m so loving this quilt.

    Layout so far.

    This is the layout for the Farmers Market so far. I love the free BOM that Pat Sloan does. I can’t wait for the last block.

    Happy quilting!

    Peaches

    Yesterday was quilting day with the Artful Hands ladies. It was so nice to see the ladies and what they were working on. I had prepped my Farmer’s Market block for June which is peaches and I had also prepped block #6 for Pretty ‘n’ Pink. Got the peach block appliqued and I got started on block #6. I will finish block #6 today.

    Happy quilting!

    Block #4

    Block #4 which is actually 2 blocks of a basket. These 2 blocks took me 3 hrs to make and made me say a dirty twice. I was so frustrated. I offered to pay Sharon to make my blocks and she laughed. 😉 I still needto sew the sashings to the block but I’m so sick of this block that I may just leave it laying on my sewing table until I get home from KY.

    Cindi showed me how to make ruching roses. B-O-R-I-N-G These are beautiful, hopefully someday I can find the patience to make some.

    Block #4

    Block #4 and I did not bond. There was a lot of cutting for these 2 cakestands so I checked them off as I cut. Well, I didn’t have enough blocks for 2 cakestands and I had too many blocks for 1 cakestand. Piecing is not my thing, give me applique’ any day. So I did what any quilter would do, I folded everything up and put it in my bag to take to my sewing day tomorrow. Then I moved on to block #5. Got all the pieces traced, fused and cut. Plus I got my background blocks cut and sewed together.

    Block #3

    Happy birthday, Toni!!

    Block #3 took a little longer than I thought, longer as in all afternoon. The block is 30 1/2″ wide with a flower vine that runs across it. Smart me, I embroidered it by hand using floss that wasn’t divided. I’m really slow at hand embroidering. :/ I think the block turned out very pretty.

    All of the sashings in this quilt are 2 1/2″ blocks sewn together. I’m undecided if I want to do that, I don’t know if I want it to look too scrappy. I’m thinking sashings in different colors of pinks and lt. green would be very pretty.

    Happy quilting!
