So, here it is....Saturday again and it's raining. I feel like we've either had rain or snow all month.
I did a little sewing this week, starting with a random block I found on Pinterest. I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with Pinterest but I do enjoy browsing! This block is called "Stargazing" and it is from the book called "Modern Blocks". I love wonky stars but after making this block I don't know how many I will actually make. I have a lot of trouble just sewing the "wonky" part. I'm more of a follow the lines kinda sewer :)
Now, here is my almost finished turquoise/brown/cream quilt top that I started back in late January/early February.
I got 2 piano key borders on during the Superbowl and then I set it aside and worked on other things.
I mentioned it yesterday to a friend and she wondered when I was going to finish so after dinner last night I pulled it out, got one of the piano key borders on and then today the other.
It really did finish up nice didn't it?
It measures 64 x 77 and will be perfect for over the back of hubby's leather couch....which he told me this morning!
I'm not a fan of how my yellow walls look in pictures but I can't change that.
This block here is Block # 9 from the 2012 Designer Mystery Block of the Month. It's called Lakeside Retreat and it was designed by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts. Only 3 more blocks and I'm done. I already started connecting the other 8 blocks with the separator strips and the geese units so when that last block kit comes all I have to do is add borders.
It's time to get some backing assembled for the brown/turquoise quilt so I can hand deliver it to the quilter when I see her on Tuesday for the monthly Sit N Sew.....I can't wait!
