Piece and Plenty and More

I have finally completed all the "Piece and Plenty" blocks.  Now to find time to sew everything together.  Here are the last blocks.


This is not one I like very well.  I am working with a kit and this is the fabrics used in the original quilt.  Too busy looking for me with the print basket and the plaid background.



Another busy block.



I changed one of the blocks to this design.  A simplified version of a block in Electric Quilt.

And last, I completed another block for the "Elegant Garden" series of blocks by Edyta Sitar.  I think it is the ninth one I have stitched.



We have had company since last Wednesday so not as much sewing as usual getting done.  We are going out for Thanksgiving dinner at a Greek restaurant that serves a traditional dinner of turkey, ham and all that goes with it.  I hope you have a wonderful holiday (to those in the USA).

  3. Your blocks are so pretty - I think the fabrics are lovely! I really like the tall stripey basket and the Edyta Sitar block. I could be thankful for Greek food - I love Greek food :0) Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. What wonderful Piece and Plenty blocks! Maybe when they are all together they will all play nicely and you will love them again. My own quilts often go through an ugly duckling stage, then when they are done, I like them again!

  7. Always like to see the Piece and Plenty blocks. I agree with you that a couple of the blocks were so busy you couldn't see what was what. All the work just didn't show up.

  9. Most of the blocks have great contrast, but that first one is a little harder to discern the design. There are some really unique basket blocks among them.
    Very nice block for Elegant Garden.
    How interesting to have an American Thanksgiving dinner at a Greek restaurant! : )

  12. Your blocks are all beautiful--I think that was my favorite Blackbird Designs fabric line. Lucky you not having to cook a turkey--lol! Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. Even with company you get an amazing amount of sewing done. The blocks may be busier than you're use to, but they still look great. Enjoy your meal out, no dishes to wash or leftovers to worry about.

  21. Greek sounds good. I agree with you the fabric is a little over the top, but your work is, as usual, great! Have a great week.
