Progress

I've been working in earnest on Vintage Stars (from this publication) and 41 this week.  At my guild's Sew Day over the weekend, I managed to sew the binding onto 41, as well as make significant progress sewing star blocks together.   After much sewing, un-sewing and re-sewing last night (I kept pinning the rows together the wrong way), the Vintage Stars top, my first attempt at piecing a quilt on-point, is finally done:


Absolutely adore the Rosette collection by Juliana Horner but I snuck in a couple of Garden Party blocks, just because.

The 41 quilt will be finished by the weekend, which should satisfy my hubby.  It drives him crazy to see so many unfinished quilts about the house.

  5. There's something beautiful and timeless about vintage quilt patterns. the colours you have chosen work well with your design. I've not tried a whole quilt on-point either but love the effect.

  6. I always think I don't like yellow, and then I see quilts with yellow blocks -- like yours! -- and fall in love. What a gorgeous quilt. I love it.
