I can't remember the last time I joined in to Design Wall Monday! The school year has really taken a bite out of my quilting time. It is three day weekend though with only 3 school days to go. I can see lots of sewing in my very near future! First on the list are these postage stamp blocks. They've been in the background for a while now coming out to play on ScrapHappy Saturdays for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I'm not sure that I will have enough of yellow and orange. I'm thinking of letting them share a row. I'll get the others sashed up though and start to do some measurements. Each block ends up at 16 inches -- maybe I should scale back the number of blocks.
Getting Jamestown Landing ready to quilt is next on the list. It has been waiting patiently for its turn on the quilting frame. I'm thinking of some nice freehand swirlies in a dark cream thread. I will of course find some time to spend with the family too. They have been so patient to let me sew for the last couple of days. It has been wonderful, but real life calls and chores need to be done.
So pretty! They are going to look stunning in a quilt. Maybe yellow or orange will show up for the RSC next month......
Love your postage squares! It is going to be one wonderful quilt.
Such bright and fun blocks. It's going to be a beautiful quilt.
Hope the next 3 days go quickly.
Counting up they look like the squares finish at 1". I'm impressed, they are gorgeous.
Anticipation...school is nearly done for you!
I just love the colour in those postage stamp blocks. I've never tried to sew such tiny squares together...but I might just have to give it a try with my scraps!
