Tuesday Quilt Block Sept. 1

A busy day today at work!  Just a quick post, my current Stars in a Time Warp, keeping up with Barbara Brackman.  Last week's fabric; Later turkey reds.


I've had both of these fabrics for some time.  They really do look like late 1800's calicos.


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 Project Aug. 25

Hello, and welcome to my blog! Here is another little project that may be destined to be a UFO.
I was fooling around with these commercially available templates to make crazy quilt blocks.  they finish at 8 inches square.  I am using 30's reproduction fabrics, and using the specialty stitches on my Janome sewing machine to embellish each seam.


I am using black sewing thread.  This imitates a style of crazy quilt I've seen at antique/vintage shops,and on-line, say, on ebay.


In the midst of this embroidery, I was not happy in how the top was turning out.  Now that most seams are done, I like it better.  Still, it's not a style that most people know, or would appreciate.  My plan is to finish the embroidery and then consider what to do.

Tuesday Project in Progress Aug. 18

This week something different - a quilt top in progress. It is the Bricks and Stepping Stones pattern - a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter's website. Do check out the pattern.


It works up easy and fast given Bonnie's excellent directions.  Mine will finish at 48 inches by 60 inches, and will be given to a local charity.  Right now it's just a top, though I do have batting and backing ready.

Tuesday Quilt Block August 11

Stars in a time warp:  The fabric of the week is floral trails, in an older style, say late 1700's to mid 1800's.  This first cheery fabric fits this description perfectly.


For my second star, I have a fabric I've wanted to use for awhile. A bit more regimented.


I'll be sad when this year-long exploration of fabric types is over.
