I hope the beginning of June finds everyone healthy and doing well. I came back from visiting my son in Virginia with a cold, tested for Covid and got conflicting results. So who knows? The good news is that I was mostly very tired for a few days and had the sniffles.
I did get my May mini finished, which was also the quilt I made for the Corinne et Céçile challenge from France! Thank you, Wendy Reed, for the motivation!
The challenge was 8-pieced blocks and 8-appliqué blocks. I was still using the aqua/purple colors so it was fun. I found a Tula Pink for the border that was in my stash and luckily found an aqua in my stash here in California for the binding. I intend to do more quilting on it but it was done in time. WHEW!
I also made some blocks for the Moda Blockheads 4 sew along. I've been using a layer cake with Betsy Chutchian fabrics, which is kind of a new approach for me.
this block was fun, playing with the striped fabric. I was really surprised and happy to find that I had a yard of it in my stash! It's awesome fabric!!
I don't know what possessed me to decide to reverse the light and dark positions but I think it's fun. Initially I pieced it wrong and had to rip out a few seams to make it look right. Jack and I got reacquainted!
This one was fun.
These were made initially.
These ones are 4-1/2" whereas the others are 9"
And I'm making great progress on my Twilight Garden quilt from Primitive Gatherings. This is the center block/border; the surrounding blocks have already been sewn...I'll need to assemble all the blocks to the center and then start on the outer border, which is quite intricate! Taking it on a long flight (to DC, for instance) enables me to make progress on it. When we drive back to Oregon next week, I"ll hopefully get a lot done! This is a once in a lifetime kind of project, for sure!!
Take care, be well, stay kind and be grateful.
