Quiltathon - Sunday



This is #11 block. One more and I'm going to start cutting the finishing kit. THAT will be busting! LOL. But I'm not talking about the stash report this week! (sigh)

~~~~~~~~~


1:00 p.m. - All 12 blocks are finished! Hooray! Used my favorite fabric and learned how to use the templates, so it was a good thing! I'm going in there right now to start cutting the finishing kit. There were 12 kits to choose from and I chose this one. It's a different setting from any I've done before, and there's a bit of applique on it. Because I'm needleturning the applique instead of fusing it, it'll take me a couple of weeks to finish this top, but I'm going to work on it every night for at least an hour!

Gosh, I can't remember when I've been so excited about a quilt -- well, since putting the final stitch in the binding of the Giterdun!

That's such a pretty quilt! You're doing so good with getting all those blocks done too! I'm surprised you've had any time for sewing . . with all that stash enhancing you've been doing! :)

Double Awesome! This is a simple block but my favorite. Can't wait to see the finished product. Have you tried the freezer paper method of applique. So much easier than "ugh" needle turn.

Kim said...

I most definitely agree with Miss Jean on the applique. Your blocks are looking great! The quilt will be a beauty!

Darlene said...

Stunning,Vicky. I can feel your excitement. WooHoo!

Wow, your blocks look FABULOUS! Congratulations and I can't wait to see them all put together. I love that finishing kit!

Teresa said...

Such pretty blocks - I can't wait to see how you finish it, and the applique. Applique is always a nice finishing touch.

Michelle said...

Wow, your Patchwork Party blocks are awesome! You got those done fast. I love those fabrics!

Ruthie said...

Just gorgeous, and such a fun setting you chose. Can't wait to see it put together.

Circes said...

Wow! I'm so impressed by how fast you got these blocks done! I'm just starting mine tonight as they take about two weeks to get here in the post. Having seen you great they look I'm really inspired to press on with them.
Thanks for sharing.

All of your blocks are gorgeous, Vicky, and I think the finishing kit you chose is one of the prettiest offered! You go girl! I have enjoyed reading your comments about each block, too. I have never used those templates - for some reason, they don't look easy to use to me. I'm being silly, I know.
