Busy, Busy, Busy

There's lots to show for my time away from the blog over the last couple weeks.

I've been doing #52WeeksWithTheQuiltersPlanner block-of-the-week sew along on Instagram.  It's hosted by Angie over at Gnome Angel which is her blog. 

Here are weeks 1 and 2, left to right.  The first is named ironically "Unnamed,." and the second is "Doves in the Daylight." 

This next one is called "Sand Dollar Star."  It might should have been called "Bear to Piece," but that could just be my fault.

You can get these free patterns by visiting here.

Another fun Instagram-along has been called #PinkSwap2017 in which we are making either large or small mini-quilts in pink to send to a secret partner. There's no blog to link you with for this one, and getting in on this particular swap is long-closed. But here's my progress so far.

And lastly for this post, I've been working on the Free Block of the Month being generously hosted by Alida at TweLoQ Designs.  The final quilt will be called "Growing Up" because this is a skill-builder!

I had never done raw-edge applique before this, and I'm glad her January block 'pushed' me into it. I like it! I investigated how it turns out after laundering a few times, and it really does well if you use the right fusible backing and a quality quilting cotton fabric.

There's actually more I've been up to, but that's enough for today.  

This post will link up with the parties at:

Thank you for reading my blog!  (I really mean that.)

  1. Great job with your block! I have not done a lot of applique either, but when I designed that block and saw how it looked, I started liking it a lot!! ;) Thanks for participating and for linking up!
