A post from Kelli–
I don’t know about anyone else, but this summer has FLOWN by. We’ve stayed busy with lots of things –my cousin Carly’s wedding, the chickens found a new home, my cousin Jody’s 5 wonderful kiddos came for a visit, Buck and Jen got married, and Mom and Dad bought a house. Also, we’ve been working on some top secret deadline sewing that you will have to wait to see until later this year and early next. It’s been a wonderful summer, but I’m sure glad that we are now heading into Fall–it’s my favorite season.
With the Labor Day holiday, I was able to get the next step of our Pieceful Nights quilt along completed. This month we will be completing the large center star.
One thing that worked well for me when making the block this month was to break it up into smaller pieces. I had a number of not fun things that I needed to do on Monday, so as I got each yucky thing done on my list, I got to sew a part of the block. I started with the center, then worked on assembling the large star points, and finished with the corner blocks. Before I knew it, I had all of the yucky things checked off of my list and I was onto fun things!
Without further ado, here are the blocks of our faithful quilt-alongers (is that even a word?)–
Here are Nancy’s blocks. I love how the blue floral looks different in each of the triangles!
Here are Joanna’s blocks. Such a nice color combination!
Judy’s blocks look great in red and green.
Aren’t Melody’s blocks gorgeous?
Make sure to stop back tomorrow to see what the stitch-alongers have been up to!
