KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

End of July Projects




Sorry for the crummy pictures, it's a very gloomy day here today with a storm approaching.
I finally finished my granddaughter Brynn's quilt. I am so happy with the way it turned out and think she will have fun looking at the the fussy cut centers as she gets older.




These are some of my favorite blocks. I stitched in the ditch, which (lots of rhyming words there!)is not one of my favorite ways to quilt but I think it is appropriate.


 I even made a label! I am not very good about labels (-: I did the in the corner method and liked it very much and will do it again.


I also dug our some swap blocks that needed my attention.


These red with solids (broken dishes?)were from a swap last fall I did with Barb. The bowties and 4 patches were from a previous swap with Barb and some from a guild swap. The blocks are 4 1/2".


I did not have enough of the red blocks but plenty of the 4 patches and bowties. They went around the edges twice (border). I used EVERY SINGLE block! Yay for an almost finished UFO. This will be a nice lap size quilt for the winter.


No thought was given to placement, I only changed groups of like colors or same blocks that were next to each other.
I feel like I got my sewing mojo back. This quilt was practically already made, I just had to make a plan for it. So get out your UFOs and lay them out on your design wall, you never know what you have hiding in our closet!

  4. The baby quilt is so sweet and wonderful for a young child too. It's so true about playing with ufo's to jump start our mojo. It's starts out sorta as 'duty' and quickly morphs into possibilities. Your bow ties & broken dishes are looking very happy togethern!

  8. Your granddaughter's quilt turned out super cute. You used an adorable fabric for the fussy cutting. I'm glad you added the label so will your granddaughter someday. I need to pull out those broken dishes exchange blocks too. Your top came together in a fresh and interesting way.
