The Dresden Fan was my oldest ufo. 104×104. There was never a plan on how many blocks or how to set them so it has languished for years I just decided to sew until it was all gone. The brown and teal Yellow brick road was fabric I was gifted 11 years ago for doggy sitting for a friend. The brown and pink was a kit a friend bought and decided it was too much work to appliqué those flowers so she gave it to me a couple of weeks ago. It feels good to get stuff done.
We’ve done some projects with light and dark strings and I love how Stephanie used that idea for this HeartStrings quilt. Half the block is blue and the other half light and bright!
I’m always inspired by the quilts Ann is making and these homespun quilts are no exception!
Our Happy Blocks for Maine Project is coming to an end and the blocks will be assembled into tops during the Maine sew-in the week of September 17th. In addition to sending in blocks for group quilts I assembled a couple tops and quilted them here using Cuddle backing donated by Shannon Fabrics. I’m looking forward to finishing more of these quilts this fall.
Are you making Happy Blocks for Maine? I’ve been making blocks to send but couldn’t resist assembling one top myself.
If you’re interested in sending blocks in there’s still a little time left. Instructions are on my website.
She’s been busy finishing up tops and I love how she uses her scraps!
Ann’s been making Fish!
Stephanie participates in our 365 block challenge each year and this is one of her latest finishes from those blocks.
I love the black centers! Blocks that are sent in for group quilts should have a blue or red center strip but when you’re making the entire set or finishing the quilt yourself, you can choose any color center strip.
