Another comes to light

That is, another work-in-progress has been unearthed.  Inspired by some instagram shares from others, I dug out the instructions for the Coming Home quilt (pattern by Sarah Fielke) and figured out what to cut out.  I had finished the second border but because I hadn’t decided on the third, I waffled on the colours to […]

Morewood mystery

At least the top is done. To make it twin size, I added a top and bottom border (deliberately sized larger than in the body) of the arrow and diamond design. I would like to get this quilted before fall. Linking up to the quilt parade at Meadow Mist Designs.

Mystery Quilting mid-way point

Here we are again, locked down due to the virus-that-must-not-be-named–this time, when I was planning to stay home anyway for the holidays. I’ll be logging in on Monday to check in on the 3 people who are also working, and putting together a proposal for a meeting I have after New Year’s. Leaving lots of […]

Slow progress – Coming home

Hi folks, I thought it was about time I checked in with you on my adventures for the Coming Home quilt, this year’s Sarah Fielke block (blocks) of the month. This is a medallion style quilt, so each month we are doing part of the next round, not necessarily a block. I used mostly scraps […]

Good Fortune Update

Here I am, plugging away on my Good Fortune quilt. Despite having all of the units made, making the blocks feels like it is taking forever. Today I laid out what I had to try to come up with an alternate arrangement to make it a bit bigger. The winner? a double 9-patch. Here is […]

Home Stretch Good Fortune

Or is it? Only Bonnie knows! But I’m sure we must be pretty close to the final reveal for Good Fortune (note that this link will expire in February 2019). Perhaps on New Year’s Day? I have a boatload of pieces-still the paper removal for clue 6 to go, but I have assigned that to […]

Good Fortune progress

I missed posting on Wednesday this week, but really all I had to show was a bunch of cut pieces. I tried Bonnie’s bonus triangle method for Clue #3, but quickly gave up (my pieces were 1/8″ small) and cut them out separately. I made a quick template for the Chevron cuts. I’m up at […]

Next mystery steps

For the second step in Bonnie Hunter’s mystery, we were making half square triangles. As I cut them out I realized that I will have a couple of days away at our shared cottage later in the month, and I could bring my featherweight…so I’m concentrating on just getting each clue cut out and I’ll […]

Deluge

No, not the 15 mm of rain we got on Monday…but the innumerable four-patches for clue #1 of Good Fortune. I cut a lot of light volume strips, and not quite so many green strips for these teeny squares.  My greens range from very yellowish to bright lime. Then I sewed (on my Singer 301 […]

One less UFO

And a gloriously scrappy finish to boot. I had tried to resist, but I had fallen into the #comfortquiltqal from Modern Heritage Quilts (hosted by Amy’s Creative Side and shared on instagram). I even managed to keep up (although sometimes ahead or behind) with the schedule, to finish this wonderful baby quilt. And as luck […]
