The photo is of a quilt top that is really too big to be a wall quilt and too small to be a bed quilt. I sometimes wonder why I do those things. I know I have posted a photo of this top before but I could not find it looking quickly back through my blog posts. It was a magazine pattern. I will have to find all the information on the quilt & post it with the final picture upon completion of the quilt. I do like designs with circles involved and with points.
Over the weekend I finished preparing the "Love Letters" applique project from "When the Cold Wind Blows". It is the version with the reds & blue greens. It wouldn't do me any good to photograph the prepared blocks as it would just be a blob of one million pieces. I'm sure it has one million pieces to it! What was I thinking? It certainly doesn't look like it would have so many pieces when you look at the quilt picture in the book. The blocks are large. Twenty-eight inches I think. Certainly innocent enough looking. Wrong. Lots and lots of pieces to each block. I hope I made the right selections of fabrics for each block. Lots of little floral prints involved. Well, maybe there aren't a million pieces for the quilt blocks but I have a feeling it will seem like it when I do start working on it. The project is put away for the time being. The fabrics are back on the shelves.
I saw some "Circuit Rider" blocks on a blog. Which one, I don't remember. They inspired me though. I need a nice quilt for a donation. I am working on preparing some of the blocks. How many, I am not sure just yet. I need to do some math after I figure out what kind of setting I will do. I am not going to do hand applique on the project but will do it with a machine stitch. I don't have time to do hand applique on it and really it would not make a difference to anyone that ends up with it. But it will be pretty! So, that is what is going on in the sewing room right now.
I am looking forward to Friday and a new quilt project to be started with friends. It is something that will be done over a period of time. Maybe a block or section every three weeks or so. No rules. Hopefully lots of inspiration from the friends to keep going and get it done for next spring. More on the project later.
I am getting close to post 100 so stay tuned.
Come back soon for another visit.
