Projects, Projects

001

Here is my current problem project, block #3 from Esther Aliu’s BOM, Heart’s Desire. Here you see me taping the 5, yes I said 5, pages together to make that one block. Then I get to applique it….3 times. She expects me to make three Block 3’s. Oh, my. And then I get to make Block 2 (only 1) but that will be for another day, week, month.

What I did get done yesterday was my March Journal Quilt. It depicts our anniversary trip to visit Harry Potter, St. Patrick’s Day and DH’s 70th birthday which comes next week. It really seems like this has been a busy month and it is just half over.

I don’t know if I shared but last month I won a prize from 3 Creative Studios for my January Journal Quilt. Here you see the beautiful hand dyed fat quarters that Vickie sent. Aren’t they beautiful. I don’t have a plan for them yet but hope they will want to be a part of a future journal quilt. Oh, and it was a random drawing, not a judged event. Winking smile

Here is my Eleanor Burns Egg Money quilt top all finished.

I am showing two of the four corners that I couldn’t make match up. See how far apart the stems are. But I think the “fix” I did looks pretty good and am happy with the result.

No sewing/quilting today or tomorrow, all WW both days. But with all the driving I do on those days, I get to do a lot of planning for both the next project and how to complete the ones I am already working on.

  1. Love the hand dyes. I have the Egg Money quilt book, but I don't think I have ever made anything from it. Now I will have to give it another look.

  2. I never got the Egg Money book, I have seen it though.
    I hate having to tape together 4 or 5 or 6 pages together for applique. The current large block I am doing 32 x 32 has 8 pages!! taped together.

  3. The Egg Money quilt is pretty, nice and springy (if thats a word). Taping stuff together just to get a complete pattern is the worst.

  4. Really like your LCQA block. I really like the block too and think it would be fun to make a quilt using just that block.
