Hello there friends..... come in and see what I have been working on in the sewing room. I have some different projects going all at once, my goal is to finish a couple of them really soon. I can not start something else until I get the two table runners done. Period!For those who remember I am making a crumb quilt here are some blocks that are finished. If you have wanted to learn how to make a crumb block- or if you have some scraps in the sewing room that are screaming to be made into something lovely then here is your chance. Hit the crumb block button on my blog page or go to www.joscountryjunction.com and she has all the patterns for the blocks. You might just want to check out the other things that Jo is creating over there- I am always amazed at the things that she makes over in her neck of the woods! She has made some awesome quilts. My goal is to make a quilt that I can snuggle up under, I wish I cold say that it will be made in time for my birthday. However I would have to have some sewing fairies in my sewing room to get anything done by Feb 20th!
|Broken dishes, star, four- patch,flying geese and a nine-patch.|
|These block patterns have all been new to me. I really had fun making the broken dishes. But I LOVE the way the star block turned out! I will be making lots of extra star blocks for this quilt- I like that they are so country looking.|
|The Flying geese again- I have to say I like the darker colors of this block. Also a nine patch- I like making these better then a four patch.|
The next project I am working on is a table runner.This is completely new to me! I know I thought "What? everyone has made a table runner before! Especially if they quilt!" But no this is my first one!! I really like the colors-the pictures don't do it justice as it is cloudy outside!
|These are two of the blocks, there is a third that is finished. However the borders on the block are a little off so they do not match up perfectly with these so I have to tweak them a little.|
|Shows the colors a little better. I like the patterns in all the fabric alot.|
|Its cute reproduction fabric. I think it is nice to work with lighter colors for a change. It gets me out of my normal comfort zone.|
|As you can see there are a lot of lines that yo need to make sure line up. Thank goodness it is only acouple that are not in line- however I still need to take this apart. Uggghhh|
|The backing is the red fabric that was used on the front. I think this would look cute in a girls room, with a scrappy quilt on the bed!|
