    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.

    Wonderful Wednesday

    Nikki fabric by Pat Sloan. I’m making a smaller version of the Charm Party Tote. I can’t decide which way to turn the fabric. Left or right?

    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!
