Swoon quilt

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
My last block to finish out the top of the quilt.

I have been playing with pieces to see how I want the border to look.  I am still undecided!
If I use the first lay out I will have to put tops on them and that should make it wide enough to fall a good 12 inches on each side.
I put the last 2 blocks together to make a sandwich yesterday and will quilt them today.
Get them added on to the other 4 blocks and then I can see whether I need a small border  for the top and bottom and see how much border I need on the sides.
Have a great weekend friends.

Sixth Block

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!

I got two more blocks quilted yesterday  Hope to get them joined  and add them to the other 2 i already did
sometime today!
I am hoping this way will be easier than doing a big quilt .
This is the start of the last block  [ i hope]
These two joined together has a little over hang on a queen sized bed.
 So i am going to make a border at least on the sides, some time next week.
Have a great week end friends.

5th block finished

Hi friends!
Rainy day!
I finished my 5th block!
I think i am just doing one more, that will cover the top of a queen sized bed.  Then i will think about borders!!!
I love that light green and dark green!!
Still looking for the fabric for my next one, thought about blue and red but i have one of those already.
I will come back later this week with ,i hope, two more quilted and by then i hope to have chosen my next one. I am getting excited about finishing it.
Have a great day friends.

1/3 of a quilt!

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I finished quilting that yellow and brown block then i did the blue and red and joined them together.
Now i have one third of a quilt.!!
I may put borders on the side or i may put pinwheels. The size it will be when i get all six together will be plenty long enough but will need some fall on the sides.
I will look to see if i can find any thing but maybe a solid would work!
I am leaning to pin wheels!
May not have any fabric i could use.
That's the problem when you use fat quarters.
What i have left is in the same family so if i don't make pin wheels i want have enough for the sides.
Well i will figure it out!
Have a great weekend friends.

Started Quilting

Hi friends!
Beautiful but cold!
I am going to sandwich and quilt each block , this is the first.
Got it done last night and was ready to start this morning.
I am straight line quilting and leaving a inch or more on the edges so i can join them together. Need to do another so i can try it as see how it goes..
I may use a saching in the middles so i am leaving a inch or two of battening on each edge.
I will let you know how it goes later this week , i hope.
Have a wonderful day.

Start of another block

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
Love this one!!
I think i am going to try quilt as you go with these blocks, wish me luck!
i see other blogger's doing it  so i am going to try.  The blocks are 29 inches and i haven't decided whether i want sashing or not. One day this week i will come back with pictures of me quilting them..
This is the 5th block, that will make 87 inches in length when i add another but only 58 inches across so i may have to do three more to make a queen sized quilt for our bed
I am really loving these colors playing off each other.
When i get them all done i will decide whether to add sashing, it may need it to make it big enough.
Have a great day friends.

Another block

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I made this Sunday and keep working on it until i had this
Though i was through but then took a good look and took it back down and took it apart.
If you don't like ripping out seams with "Jack the Ripper" you shouldn't be a quilter.
Now it's right and i can move on to my next block!!!
This will be my next block, it's light green and dark green.
Have a great day all my friends.
