Virginia Bound from Bonnie Hunter’s book Scraps and Shirttails I is on my front burner. I’m having trouble concentrating on anything else. I’m actually having to discipline myself to do other things…like the wedding quilt I got finished…and the charity quilts I want to finish. Oh my.
My blocks are in several stages. We took a car trip so I needed something to do as we traveled so …pulling the backing paper off happened.
Here’s my view…one nice stack of completed blocks and the open road.
Once home I sneaked up to the sewing room and finished a bunch…these need to get trimmed but I am making myself wait until nap time one day this week.
I scrambled and got the rest of the blocks this far along….the centers are done and the first neutral string piece is sewn down…again, I am making myself wait and will trim these over nap time too.
If you have questions on the process of how I am making these blocks, check out this post.
I think that’s all the blocks I need for the quilt. I am so happy to say that as now I can clean up part of the mess in the sewing room. Working with strings is a messy business…but oh so worth it. I’m loving seeing this one come along. It’s long over due that this one get finished.
I kind of have made a bit of a goal for this to be finished so I can take it to our retreat for show and tell. We’ll see. I have other projects that need to get accomplished too…oh the life of a busy quilter!!
Catch me here next week. My goal…have the blocks all finished! YAHOO…I’d be so happy.
