More from my Memorial Day Weekend Projects

20 comments
Last night was "quilt night" with my local girls - That Alpine Group. More on that when I can digest the pictures. But it was fun. Over the weekend I wanted to get caught up on making my blocks for the 20 year celebration quilt since the beginning of our group. So here are my latest blocks.
This was a fun one. I hope the fabrics will all come together in the end. I need to stick with the red, turquoise, yellow theme with accents of green.
This is supposed to be a pineapple block but I'm not sure what mine looks like or even when I went wrong. I don't know if I should put in a couple extra circles in that 2nd row. I'm unsettled about this one.
This is Jody's block and I'm not good with curves. But I should be. For some reason mine measures more of a very scant 9" instead of 9 1/2". And this was my 2nd attempt! If I really fudge the seams, tell me it will quilt out!
This is an appliqued sewing machine block. It has lots of little pieces still to put on after I finish appliqueing the body of the machine, so the verdict is still out on how this block will turn out.
A new quilt back from the quilter. I scalloped the top and bottom edges. Binding is sewn on so I just have to hand stitch the binding the rest of the way. More about this later, too.

I had stuff to do when I got home from quilts last night and didn't get to bed until way late. I had an early morning meeting so I'm a little bleary eyed today. Need diet mt. dew. Just one of my vices.

Your blocks are great, I really like the colors in the first one.
I need to try my hand at a scalloped edge quilt. Can't wait to see this one.
My fix is diet Pepsi, what us quilters do to get more hours in sewing.
Keep Stitchen'

Hi Nanette-
It looks like you have alot of variety in your blocks - that quilt is going to be so cute!!
I love the pinapple and I do think more circles would fill it in better...I'm looking forward to seeing more of your new quilt.

love your X-block and the fabrics that you used for it. scrappy perfection. and again great fabrics used in your "cascading" creation.

Wendy said...

Great blocks!
What if you add little border strips to the "Jody's block"? Then it'll measure whatever you want it to. =-)

I bet it really warms your heart to see a pattern you made, use by others, in their own way. Each and evryone was different yet beautiful.
My you have a group of talented woman, and the creamer and sugar set, I love them!!!

I have never done a scalloped edge - I would say I'm a chicken!
