My design wall contains 23 16 patch blocks, enough for a comfort quilt. I am trying to decide if I will use white or cream as the alternate blocks. I plan a white or cream containment border and then a scrappy border, and then, a who knows border. I will probably piece the backing and even have some of the backing left from the Egg Money quilt quilt.
Next to those blocks are two Underground Railroad blocks, the BOM from my LQS. I found them to be really easy and quick.
And under them is my Journal Quilt for April.
I found making this was very interesting and different. I saw it as kind of a picture of Spring in our woods. Lots of green, sprigs of color, and frequent gray skies.
This is the picture I like the most: aren’t my roses looking good. All of the bushes are covered with roses.
I had hoped I would be showing completed blocks from the Heart’s Desire BOM. However, I seem to have lost the applique pieces I had prepped. So today, after I search for them one more time, I will be doing them over.
This week I will have more sewing time. One of my Weight Watchers meetings has ended and another is taking the week off for Spring Break so I will only have one to do. I love leading these meetings but it will be nice to have more time with my machines.
Now, before you start sewing, drop by Judy’s blog to see what everyone else is working on.
