Happy Wednesday! Because my husband was away on a fishing trip and I didn’t have anything on the calendar, I was able to spend half of Monday and all day Tuesday just quilting (I did do a tiny bit of housework and cook some yummy zucchini bread, too). First on my list was a work in progress that I really want to finish…my Moda Building Blocks quilt in red and white.
I was about half way through with section D when I left off 18 weeks ago (I can’t believe it had been that long, so it’s definitely time to get this one finished). It seems like the longer a project sits, the harder it is to pull it out and work on it. So it feels great to be working on this again!
I started off making the remaining two blocks (both are 18″ x 18″ finished) in section D, and then I made all six of the small blocks in section E. I’m ready to sew D and E together now, and then I’m hoping to make the seven small blocks in section F today.
Then there will just be one section left, and that section consists of a really large block and some more small ones. I think I can finish this before the end of June!
You can see my last post on the progress of this quilt here.
I did start something new as well, although technically I’m calling this a work in progress, too. The two blocks on the left side of the photo above were left over from when I made the County Fair quilt sample for Joanna of Fig Tree. Even after making myself a mini version of the quilt I knew I needed to make the full size version again…for me. And since I have scraps from three different quilts I made using those fabrics, I decided I’d better cut out the quilt before I used something I might need. I had to substitute a couple of other Fig Tree fabrics from the ones used in the original quilt, but I’m ready to go on this one…as soon as I finish the Moda Building Blocks quilt, of course!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
