Isn’t it amazing? I have something new on my design wall! I cut these tumbler blocks and spaced them out so I can fill in between with either white or cream tumblers.
Here is a picture of the blocks as I laid them out on the ironing board. I was looking at how they go together as I have never made a tumbler quilt before.
This will be a comfort quilt and here I am, again, trying to use up the 30s fabric I got for this quilt and used again in this quilt. And yet this fabric continues to seem to multiply as soon as I turn the light out in the studio. For this reason I already have planned a doll sized quilt for the cradle using what’s left (I hope) of it.
These are my Underground Railroad blocks. Well, except for what you see as the first block in the third row. There you can see the fabric for the last block which I hope to sew this week.
Here are the blocks with the fabric I have chosen, I think, for the sashing. I’d like to do something different than just straight sashing so I’m glad I have some time to figure it out.
I am finally getting around to working on My Hearts Desire quilt blocks.
So I got out the prepped pieces for the first of 4 blocks. I laid them out and look how many empty places there are. I was sure I had made all of the pieces for all 4 blocks but now I see that I had only gotten started. So I will set aside time each day to prep those missing parts. I am way behind with these: Esther has already started a new BOM quilt. I, however, really want to complete this quilt someday.
And now for some gratuitous cat pictures.
Ms. Murphy found the cradle. Doesn’t she look like a little princess?
And here she seems to be saying “are you still looking at me?”
