Put Together

I have the blocks put together with my Kaffe mini charms.

Now I need to put the three layers together , so that I can start hand quilting it. 

The directions and next step in My Carolina Home's BOM came out today . I finished it because I am only doing a table topper. So it didn't take long.

Busy day tomorrow chatter much later. Martha

Thimblecreek Blocks

I finished the two new blocks that were given on Tuesday earlier this week.

One green and one blue, like the rest of my blocks.

I was ready to start a new hand quilting project and thought I would work with a stack of 2 1/2" squares of Kaffe fabrics. I bought them at Gruber's in St. Cloud, MN. They were a bundle of 250. I also had  2 1/2 yards of a background fabric that I thought would go well. I figured out a pattern that consisted of two different blocks. They come out 8 1/2" unfinished and 8" finished.

The block with arrows to measurements looks like this....

The other block with four rows of four looks like this.....

Got a few more blocks to make. Playing around with settings and found one I like .  I turned the four patch  block  different ways to get this pattern.  I may play around a bit more to find other ways to use these blocks before I decide. Chatter later, Martha.

Ready For something New

I am ready to start something new today! I fixed my half square triangles in my Chain of Fools by Jen Kingwell....

I took it to be quilted by Connie Krueger. Of course I told her feathers! She has a lot of variety of them.

I also finished hand quilting  concentric circles on my scrappy one . They are leftover from a dignity quilt that I did in December of last year. I washed and dried it to get out markings. It is very cuddly. I also put a label on the back.

This quilt will be given to Linus or crisis for kids along with these two quilts and teddy bear....

They are hand quilted and all have labels on them. I will deliver them to Brenda Peterson this Saturday. All for now , sun is shining, bless you all for reading! Martha.

Not Quite A Finish

I have a  picture of right side of Chain of Fools before adding it to center.

I also have made the binding, which I am doing a small flange.

Now a pic of the whole top, in doing this I found two half square triangles that are turned the wrong way. So it looks like I will be doing a little frog stitching! Plus I still need to make the backing. So not quite a finish but getting closer. Chatter when I get back from visiting my kids, Martha.

Left side

                 Well I have the left side of blocks finished.

We got hit with snowstorm last night with more expected Tuesday.  Guess it is a sewing day for sure. I just might finish the right side, cross your fingers. Martha
