A Finish and Two WIP's...

This week did not find me in my
"Hidey Hole"
much at all,
but I do have a 
Finish!

These are the blocks being made for 
I decided I had made enough,
so put them together....
added a simple border....
and
Ta-Da...


A completed top!

This top was so much fun to make.

And so bright and cheery!


Next...
I have been able to add more to my


This is a tiny little quilt...
this section being
only 12 1/2" Square.


I need to applique the flower's centers
and four other circles to the piece.
Then the borders will be added.



And Finally....
My Missouri Crossing quilt
looks the same as last week,
BUT....


I did manage to get some trimming
done. These are ready to be 
sewn into the blocks.

Lots of trimming!

My goal is to have these blocks
COMPLETED
this week!
We shall see, but they are calling for
SNOW tomorrow.
Please don't let us lose our power!

:)

Happy Quilting!

Your scrappy top is lovely and very cheerful, and I love your applique project as well. But what REALLY intrigues me is what you mentioned about trimming your HSTs. Do you deliberately oversize them, and if so, why?

Lorna McMahon said...

You have been busy, Ramona! What a pleasure to see your bright and happy quilt top. That simple border sets it off just right. Beautiful applique work and all those time consuming HST's! Lovely job on all!

Gayle Bong said...

WOW, I bet Judy likes you. Your quilt looks like a good ad to join her challenge It's great. And I thought I didn't like that block. I guess it depends on what you do with it.

I just love your scrap blocks - the colors are fabulous. And it is finished: congrats!!!

I love how colorful your scrappy challenge quilt is. Very bright. And how fun is that pile of trimmings. No fun to do the trimming but there is something sooo satisfying with that little pile. I don't know where you are but I'm in CT and also getting snow tomorrow. I'm looking forward to enjoying a day staying in and playing with fabric.

Your Scrappy Challenge quilt turned out beautifully, love all the bright colors you used. The Missouri Crossing blocks are gorgeous. Hope there is no power outages today so you can stitch some.
