Dearest Boy Update and A Finish

November 15th update for my "Dearest Boy" quilt project.  A pieced star block this time.  It did not take much time to do.


I finished a quilt from Jan Patek's pattern "Hearts and Flowers".  This will be gifted later on.  I started the quilt in April of 2014. I had the pieced and applique blocks done for a good while before beginning the process of sewing them into rows.  I got about 3/4 of the way through that and had to stop for some reason I no longer remember.  It becomes easy to forget about going back to finish the process.  A couple months ago, I decided it was long over due for a finish and took time to finish the process.  The local quilt shop did the machine quilting.  I am happy with the finish.




I am back working on a quilt from a Linen Closet design.  I just finished the last applique block and hope to start tomorrow on the sashing and simple borders.  I will share a picture soon.

I love how our blocks look so similar. I was late posting mine because I had a check up eye appointment.

Beautifully pieced star block Karen, is it machine or hand pieced? And another lovely finish, you have been busy.

Your hearts and flowers is very sweet. Funny the ones we leave off in the middle somewhere! Glad you were able to get it finished up so that you can enjoy it now!

It's interesting to look back why our attention to a quilt is diverted. Glad you got back to Hearts and Flowers. It's very pretty. It's nice to have an easy block once in a while.

I really like the border arrangement on the Jan Patek quilt. Amazing how little it takes to distract us, isn’t it???

Your Hearts and Flowers looks so pretty! I only just purchased this pattern earlier this year, but haven't started it. The Turkey quilt in the blog header is amazing as well...I recognize it as Jan Patek?
