Weekend Sewing


I did get to sew on National Quilting Day.  I can't claim any finishes, but a lot of "prep" work was accomplished. First I finished all 80 of my "Picnic" blocks using Central Park!  I can't wait to finish this quilt. This is the third quilt I've made with this line, and I never tire of the colors and prints!


I also finally cut into my Fandango stash I had been hoarding saving!  I've decided quarter-square triangles are my friends (as long as I can trim them down).  The trimming takes a bit of time but is so worth it!


I also workked on more quarter-square triangles for my "Eventide" quilt.  These still need trimming and then will become 8 more Ohio Star blocks.



Oh, and have you seen the new Schnibbles patterns?  I'm in love with all of them! Every single one would be wonderful in any combination of fabrics--traditional or modern.  I can't wait to start sewing these!  In fact, I'm starting one soon...(think upcoming LePetite project)! Have a great day!

What will YOUR Fandango be Sherri? And Central Park is beautiful and I don't own any... Which new Schnibbles will LePetite be doing? I'm not able to do March but will be back for April!

I love the Central Park fabric, but I haven't gotten up the nerve yet to cut into my FQ bundle...it just sits there and looks pretty!

Cindy said...

Looks like a lot accomplished! I'm doing the hoarding thing with Central Park. I just want to sit and look at it!

I can't wait to see your Central Park quilt! I just got a layer cake of that line and I'm trying to figure out how to design a quilt with it... :)

Brita said...

Don't have any Central Park, but couldn't resist getting some Sunkissed fat 8ths, and a Buttercup layer cake. I'm fondling those, yummm.

Wow, you were busy! :) I got a charm pack of the Central Park, but I sort of feel like I should have gotten more. Looking forward to seeing more! :)

I think you are going to be very busy as a result of National Quilting Day - maybe that should be NQ Month???

Beautiful projects.
I looked for these pics on Flickr but I don't see them. I was going to invite them to be added to my 'All Things Kate Spain' group.

Your central park blocks are lovely. I recently saw this fabric line in the lqs, so tempting. You always seem to accomplish a lot. Speedy Gonzalez! Those little Schnibbles patterns are consistently adorable. Wish I had the time to make more of them.
