I had a four day weekend, but only spent two days in my sewing room. I finished up the Diamond in a Diamond block for the Charm Square Quilt Along. Now, I am all caught up with that one!
I made six more Carrie Nation blocks in blue. January's color for the RSC15 was blue and I had cut more blocks than I actually finished in January.
I cut tons of 2.5 inch squares and 1.5 inch squares for my pink Carrie Nation blocks.
This four patch quilt is featured in American Patchwork & Quilting April 2015 issue and I love the look! But I think I can achieve it with my Carrie Nation blocks especially since I want to make a king size quilt for our bed. I would also rather not set my blocks on point.
I did not make my frog block for the Elephant Parade yet, but I have until next Sunday. I also want to make the sewing machine block as part of the Fat Quarter Shop's Snapshots Quilt Along--I am not making a big quilt, but some mini quilts of the blocks. I am trying to finish up the hand quilting in the borders of my Journey of a Quilter quilt. I need more time, but I will take advice from my favorite fable, The Tortoise and the Hare, slow and steady...
