My deadline quilt is coming along….Here’s what I can show you.
Not much to see…right? I’ve been trimming some half square triangles which isn’t very exciting.
In between all of that I sneak in a few leader and ender pieces. Typically it’s spool blocks but I took a little break from them to sew a few Odds and Ends blocks. I got all the blocks sewn that were cut out and we so excited. Then Kelli told me if I only had that many blocks, my quilt would be pretty small so I cut out 10 more blocks.
Putting them together in between my deadline project and working on them has been a joy. I just love these blocks and can’t wait for the to be a quilt. This is definitely a slow and steady project though.
To see what others are working on, check out Patchwork Times. If you like giveaways we have two going on-one is sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop (yes it’s for fabric) and the other is sponsored by C&T Publishing for the ebook Making Quilts (It’s a great book)!
Love the Odds & Ends blocks. Those colors all seem to work together.
Those blocks are really cute!
Very nice blocks. I have not seen that block pattern before. I like your choice of fabrics that contrast nicely all the triangles.
I like the centers of these star blocks. Tiny pieces! Trimming is important, not boring, just a bit tedious…
Slow and steady projects are my favorite ones to work on too!
love that block never thought to put a shoo fly in a star. I need to remember that one!!
ARGH I’ve been NOT working on that same project! all my blocks are done, but I need to put the sashing on it and then the borders…. MUST get going.
You have such cool ideas! I must not start another set of blocks!
Well maybe 12 wouldn’t be too much? And I do love to make minis!
