I worked on a couple projects today. Finishing up Candle mat swap blocks. And, took out a paper piecing project I put aside a couple years ago. It's from the book  Seascapes by Cheryl Peck. Unfortunately, I picked a sky fabric that is very directional and it is giving me fits. That's part of the reason I put it aside after the first 3 blocks. I didn't have much better luck with the 4th block called Coastal Bridges. But it is what it is  after working on it nearly all day,  I like the Blue Crab block better. The last three photos are the blocks I made a couple years ago and set aside. Not sure if I'll continue; may just set it aside for another couple years.


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Agnes, I really like your quilt, and I think it's even better as the smaller version! Nice work!!

Judy,  the pp blocks are nice, but can imagine the directional fabric is making it tough. The class I took warned us about them, and stripes! Maybe you can turn the blocks you have into a little patio table topper. They would look cute out there, and you might not feel guilt for not finishing any more. I've decided that for the rest of my life I'm not going to waste good time making things that aren't turning out well, or I just plain don't like! haha.

Thanks to you and everyone else who commented on my quilt. The reason the border came off is because I just didn't like it that way. The borders will be wonderful in a row quilt. I have a bin with them and any of the other fabric in it for another throw.

Judy--directional fabric can be a real pain. Block designs are so cute.

After never really liking to do applique I think I have found my answer. I used Wonder Under, no fighting with the paper first, and then with the blanket stitch on the machine I stitched it down. It went beautifully. Can you believe I've had the machine that I purchased to get the stitch for almost 18 months and still I was dragging my feet. I like the stitching so much better than any satin stitch I have ever done. Now I'm waiting on backing fabric to complete this wall hanging, just over 20" square.

Thank you, Donna. Yes, it is the bass clef symbol. The fellow who requested the wall hanging is a bass guitar player.

Lol WeeZee didn't think you'd see them on there. Can't believe we only have two more clues.

Judy, your blocks are fantastic!!

Agnes, I'm gonna have to keep that wonder under in mind for when I decide to try appliqué ! Like your bass cleft!

I'm putting binding on a quilt tonight, hoping I can finish it..

I look forward to the clues each week. When this one is over I'll start on the McCall Quilt Along call the Studio Sampler. I might start it before the other is done. Anyway. They call theirs lessons instead of clues not a mystery but I like the blocks they are using. QNNTV.com has the videos you need to down load the lessons from their website. Here is the link if you are interested.

Judy, love the blocks, don't hide them away.

Agnes, great block, love the crisp look to it.

Good luck on the MQ ladies.

I spent all morning yesterday sewing on Girl Scout patches on DGD Daisy  vest. Why the leader waited to give them out in one bunch is beyond me. Give them as they earn them , makes it a lot easier on the Grandma who has to sew them all on, LOL
