This week I took a detour and pulled some baby fabric out of my stash for some relief of making Dresden and Geese blocks. I have not used this fabric, a left over from my grandson Noah's baby quilt, in 12 years. Yes, he was 12 in April. Still cute as ever, the fabric and the grandson.
I have some pieces all cut and ready to make into star blocks with my Tilda Lemon Tree fabrics.
This mess is all the strips cut to add to do my braided quilt blocks. This project sort of got set aside while I moved on to others.
More partially made Geese. I have all I need cut and I am making good headway on finishing them off.
Well at least a bit of progress has been made. Three more Dresden blocks ready for just the centers sewn down, and 16 of the 24 Geese I need complete. Some progress was made in this rather disjointed week.
oh my goodness...I don't feel so bad now...just wait until you see my studio!ReplyDelete
Aren't those flying geese addictive? I use the QIAD ruler if I have larger pieces. I love your choice of fabrics.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous fabrics you are using on your geese blocks!ReplyDelete
Beautiful fabrics and great block progress!ReplyDelete
I love those fabrics you are using for your geese and your Dresden plates. So, in case you are REALLY sick of looking at that quilt by the time it's done, I volunteer to adopt it into my home... ;-) As for the passage of 12 years in a blink -- I can relate to that, too. My baby is finishing up his JUNIOR year of high school right now, and the soon-to-leave-my-nest panic is definitely setting in. When I come across bits of leftover fabric from his baby quilt in my scrap stash, they are like precious treasures that bring back so many memories. I wish I had bought more of every fabric when I was starting out, so I would have more of those memory scrap treasures! Instead I bought exactly the amount of fabric called for in the pattern, and then had to deal with shortages due to the Catastrophic Cutting Mistakes that happen EVERY TIME I start a new quilt...ReplyDelete
Have fun hanging with your BFF! I do love those pictures of all of the fabrics for different projects! How exciting!ReplyDelete
This is really starting to come together - looking good!ReplyDelete
