I'm working along with a Flickr group making blocks every 3 weeks. The end will be a quilt top created by Sentimental Stitches.
I'm doing mine in all reds and greens with a background fabric that will tie it all together. All from my stash. I'm making do.
I hope to be finished with this by the end of the year and then put it together. I will quilt it myself but haven't decided how.
I've changed some of the blocks. This one I've 4 patched the center and added a heart.
This is the only applique block in the project. My favorite. I love applique and it comes easy to me. Piecing does not.
My baskets. Reds and Greens from my stash. I really need to explain what I mean by stash. Those bits of red came from my scraps. Some from the trash basket. Waste not.
This is a 12 inch block. The center fabric was purchased at a local quilt shop in the late 1990's. Just have a bit more of this left. I can't imagine what ever possessed me to buy so much fabric that I never used.
Most of the blocks that are pieced I have foundation pieced. I duplicate the block with my EQ7 software, and then print foundation pieces. Once a section is foundation pieced, I remove all paper before putting the sections together. I find this to be an easier way of making sure it is correct.
I foundation pieced the log cabins and the half square triangles, removed the papers and then put all together for this block section.
For this one I didn't remove the papers first and it's all wonky. I'll do this one over, which is not too much of a problem.
This is the same block construction, with my papers removed. Not as wonky.
So I continue with my projects, using up the fabric purchased ages ago.
