Friday (almost) finished

Hello and welcome to a semi-regular feature, my current work or a current finish.
Today, not quite done:  a lap quilt is the double Irish chain pattern, quilted, but not bound.  This photo (not the greatest) is of the top before quilting.


Quilting is done in simple straight lines. About what I can manage on my old Kenmore machine!

On the Stashbusters quilt list on Yahoo we are discussing Irish chain quilts, and set a challenge.  This will eventually be my first finish of the year.  Muslin background is from all the strips left from backing previous quilts, and the colorful fabrics are from circa 1990's Jinny Beyer fabrics, and scraps from deep stash, of the same vintage.  Borders (yellow then green) are new fabric.  Binding will be the same green as the outer border.

Tuesday Quilt block Jan. 16

Good day everyone visiting my little blog!
It's a cold cold day in the American Midwest.  But it's Tuesday and time to share a quilt block.  This week, the Jane Stickle Facebook group I belong to is sharing B3.  I have indeed done this in indigo and white:


This is before being trimmed to the correct size.

Friday Finish Jan. 12 '18

Hello and welcome to what is becoming a regular Friday feature, as long as I am active in my sewing/quilting space. That is, a quilt block, Jane triangle, or even a quilt top to share.
Today, a triangle in indigo fabric:


A bit of a struggle with paper piecing of those long pieces, but doable.  Made of new (to me) indigo reproduction fabric.  Must keep going with the triangles!  At 5 inches by 8 inches, challenging to those of us who normally work in the block format.

Tuesday Quilt block: Jan. 9

Good day! Time for another Jane Stickle quilt block.
This week's block is B 2.  I followed the instructions by Anina on That Quilt.  See her blog for step by step instructions.
Make two pinwheel blocks.  For the best one, cut into a circle of the correct size (and seam allowances) to prep for applique onto the other one:


I used the "freezer paper on bottom" technique.  Arrange with the colors alternating and applique on top of the bigger block.


It looks harder than it really is.
