Tuesday Quilt project Feb. 2

And we are one day closer to Spring.

Today I have a project in progress: a set of classic blocks in the Hole in the barn door pattern, also known as Monkey wrench or Shoo fly. I really must get these together so that I can take them off the floor.  However I am very busy at my day job - and the work bleeds into my evening and weekend hours.


Fabrics are reproductions of late 1800's to early 1900's blues, claret, red, and double pinks.  Backgrounds are various shirting prints for a scrappy look.

I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River and Quilt Story as I do most weeks I have blocks to share. Both blog hops have pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects. I am also joining Work in Progress Wednesday - some colorful and interesting projects there!

Tuesday quilt Jan. 19

And... I was busy over Christmas!  Holiday events and baking, but I was also able to finish up and bind a lap quilt early in January.


The jewel box pattern, done in various 1930's reproduction fabrics and unbleached muslin.  The squares are 2.5 inches wide and use up most of a jelly roll I purchased.  I machine quilted it myself on my sewing machine.

Tuesday quilt block Dec. 22

I have been busy - nearly a month away! And I 'had' to purchase fabric for the next star (last star) presented by Barbara Brackman on her blog.  I have really enjoyed this year's quilt along and the pattern was certainly easy.  Thank you Barbara, I learned so much.

The Nov. 25 fabric type was stick prints and cracked ice, a print style from 1810 - 1840.   Hard to find this fabric type now but I did my best:


With the bonus of some paisleys thrown in too.  Only one fabric this week.

My plans for my star blocks: I plan to split these into two groups, 'early' and 'late', and make two quilt tops with simple sashing.  If I don't have enough stars for the size I want, I will make more.  I certainly know more about the fabric types, and I have a deep stash with other fabrics I passed over.

Tuesday Quilt block Nov. 24

Catching up after two weeks.... I had to order fabric for the first star below!

On Barbara Brackman's blog she recently described "early roller print clouds and storms".  Here is block number 1:


And last week, she described and showed examples of "corals and seaweed" prints.  My star is below.


This is an older Jinny Beyer print, and looks ferny or seaweedy to me.  As does the background fabric.
