Feb. 14 Tuesday Project

And this is a project in progress, and will be for some time.
And appropriate for today, now that I think about it!
A double wedding ring quilt top:


Pieces on my floor - I don't have a design wall.  A close-up:


This is an old old UFO from the 1990's (!!)  I am using templates and instructions from Shar Jorgeson, available at that time. The instructions say to NOT sew into the connecting fabric corners until the very end, so I have not.   I am also using reproduction fabric available from the 1990's.  As for future quilting, I think I will have it machine basted, and hand quilt it.

Happy Tuesday! Quilt done

Happy Tuesday to you!  Time for one of my occasional Tuesday Quilt posts.

This is a recent finish.  The pictures are of the top, but it is now quilted and bound.


I made many flying geese units using the no waste method, and old old stash.  I just kept going, without counting.  Each unit finishes at 4 inches by 2 inches.  The blue in between is new material.  Here is a close up:


This photo is a bit "yellow" - the light fabrics are more white than shown.  I quilted simply along the blue columns using a batting that can be quilted 4 inches apart, machine bound it, and called it done.
No home for this one, yet.

Tuesday Quilt post

Happy Tuesday to you!  I have been able to do quilty stuff this past week and have a mostly finished project to share with you today.  It is a version of Pineapple blossom  - pattern and directions by Bonnie Hunter.  I have set the blocks together a different way than she shows.


And a close-up:


The blocks are set edge to edge and the movement of the flying geese is accentuated.  I bought 2 and a third yards of the pale yellow for the geese and used 2 yards - if you make this pattern allow for that!  All the medium dark fabrics are from very old stash.  It's good to use them up.  The top only needs borders now.

Back again on a Tuesday!

I'm back again!  I can't believe I was away from my little blog for so long, but it was a very busy semester for me.  Now finals are over and I can catch up. I was doing some piecing, just not much over the last few months.
The project I described in my last post is a bit stalled, and I worked on using my leftover cut squares.  I just cut and cut and don't count.  I may be a long in this.  So I had a number of two inch squares cut from feedsacks - what to do?  Well maybe make 16 patch blocks and set them together:


To make a square quilt top of an odd size.  Oh well.  I used up all my cut squares and it is put together.
