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.

I am linking up with Connie at Freemotion by the River as I do most weeks I have projects to share. Follow the link to pictures of pretty quilt blocks and other projects.

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.

Tuesday quilt project Aug 30

Well school has started up for me again so it's pretty busy now.  Here though is a quilt top in progress.  It is based on a quilt top I saw for sale on ebay, as I have mentioned in a previous post.  I can't afford it, so I am making a copy.  No I don't have a pattern, as I am winging this based on photographs.


There will eventually be 5 columns of scrappy squares, separated by plain fabric.

Tuesday quilt: Christmas/winter quilt

This quilt I have made quickly - a new start for this year.  It is for our our departing minister.


I started with a jelly roll of Hoffman fabrics, and some yardage to round out the jelly roll and add for borders.  The pattern is a free pattern (called Simply Strips) for jelly roll quilts, available on Craftsy.
