Pond Racing

Another Sarah Sporer monthly design done.  This time it is "Pond Racing".  A sailboat for July in red, white, and blue..

And the next to last block for "Loch Lomond".  One block left and then the border and I am not looking forward to it.  I think because it is a lot of the same curvy shapes taken from elements in the blocks.

Audrey from "Quilty Folk" is inspired to make an eagle quilt and has asked if others are interested.  I am jumping on the band wagon.  I am surprised at how many eagle patterns I have in my library of books and individual patterns.  Both reproduction style and prim.  Hard to choose just one so I may have to do two or three!

I am working on finishing a summer block today for a Cheri four season quilt pattern.  Back to stitching.

  3. Lovely finishes! I've not seen the boat race before that I remember. Great fabric choices.
    And I was considering the eagle challenge also - do you think a work in progress would be ok? As I 'just happen' to have one - imagine that:)

  5. What a great sailboat block. I've never been on a sailboat but this block says "summer" to me. I guess I enjoy watching them from the shore.

  7. Love this July Pond Racing block. I wish I had more time for sewing. It is becoming such a struggle for me this summer. Instead of things slowing down at work, we are getting busier.

  9. Love the Pond Racing block! Perfect fabric choices too!

    The TQC i showed on my blog was a weekly mailing... but, she does have a freebie sew along going on too that I think you'd love! The appliqued center block was just posted on her blog.... and then there were a 100 or so little spool blocks... I need to catch up on that one! :-)

  14. All of your RWB plaid fabrics give your sailboat quilt a great look and your appliqué work on Loch Lomond is nicely done. A nice contrast in styles.
