Tag Archives: wonky blocks


A few days ago I finished the first Fish Quilt. Here's the other one. Again, it was pieced by another guild member, but I did the quilting and added the binding. No cute fish patterns in my quilting this time. I took the opportunity to practice a new pattern that I then used on Antioxidant Delight. I'm so pleased to have two completed quilts to return to the next SCVQA meeting next week.

Crossing off a couple finishes afforded me to feeling that I could make some progress on my wonky blocks that I started in July. In the past couple days I've gotten 11 more blocks done. (I don't even want to do the math on how many need to be made total... a lot!) Anyway, here they are. Don't expect a finish on these guys any time soon. :-)

Oh, and I ran across this cute, free printable Quilt Progress Tracker. It does beg the question, fellow bloggers... do you usually wash your quilt before or after you photograph it for your blog?

I've linked up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

I'm linking up to Finish Along Quarter 3 Finish Party. Here is my full list of Q3 Finish Along Goals.


After all the positive feedback to my fabric selection I shared last Sunday, I couldn't resist getting started on cutting up the fabric for my two Roman Stripez quilts. Here's a preview of the first few pieced blocks.

And my progress on cutting fabrics for the two projects. I'm about 90% done cutting the initial rectangles. Then I will be working to shuffle them around into groupings for each set of blocks.

I also got to the last step of my 2006 (previously referred to as 2005, oops) Mystery Quilt. I cut up the pieced strips to create the units that will make the first border. Then it will start going together into a completed top.

Here's what's done so far on this one. There are 35 blocks, made from... 883 pieces of fabric! Man that's a lot of fabric. These are 7.5" finished blocks, so those little squares were all 2" squares to start with. I'm so happy to have them all pieced together!

Oh, and on the cookie front, these 42 cookies get iced tomorrow night for The Boy's airplane and helicopter birthday party this weekend.
