SALLY POST BLOCKS 10, 11, AND 12

I just finished up my April Sally Post Floral quilt blocks.  I am now 1/3 of the way done.  Twenty-four more to applique.  I like the sound of 1/3 done better than 24 more to stitch even though comes out the same.
I still have not settled on a sashing fabric to use with the blocks.  I wish I could find it at the local quilt shops but no such luck.  And it is difficult to determine looking online if the fabric I am selecting will actually be what I want when it arrives.  The last I ordered was not.

I just pulled out another UFO that has been lingering and am going to work on it this evening.  I should be working on another block of the month project but I feel this UFO will not take a lot of time.  It is a summer quilt and summer is just around the corner.  Those of you with snow may not feel that way.  Here in Florida, we do.

These are such fresh, pretty blocks, Karen. I agree--1/3 finished sounds so much better! : )
I do not like shopping for specific colors online. So hard to get the right thing. Good luck with that!

Happy stitching!

They look good! Keep it up girlie! Sounds like you to need to road trip to a big show sometime soon to find the perfect fabric for those sashings!

Cheryl said...

I like your cup half full approach! And I agree that it is so hard to order online if you have not seen the fabric in person. Here in AZ summer is only a few weeks away! 90's are our norm now.

Ja et queda menys per acabar. Et quedarà molt bonic. M'agrada la combinació dels colors.

I really love these blocks Karen!! I agree, ordering on line when looking for a specific color never works. I hope you are able to find something locally.
