Lets Sew Quilt Along

Block 11 of Segment 3 of the Sew Let’s Quilt Along QAL is called By The Bolt and is designed by Becca Fenstermaker of Pretty Piney Quilts.

This block is a great addition to this quilt along.  What would we do without our precious bolts of fabric?

One of the other participants got the idea to tilt one of the bolts, and I really liked the idea.  

So I decided to tilt one of my bolts.

Sometimes ( a lot of times) I simply have to laugh at myself.

Do you see something wrong with this picture?

I cannot believe that I didn’t notice until after I took this photo!

Really?

I will be getting together with Jack the Ripper and remaking a part of this block!

I really don’t have floating bolts of fabric on my shelves.  Do you?

Block 10 of Segment 3 of the Sew Let’s Quilt Along QAL is a cute Button Block design by Laura Piland of Slice of Pi Quilts .

Like the other blocks in this QAL, this block was fun to make!

For the sharp eyed participants, you will see that the white inner ring of my yellow button is too wide.  I’d like to say that was a design choice, but alas, I had a happy accident!  Yes, I do like the wider ring…even if it was supposed to be skinny!

The blocks are stacking up on the design wall!  They make me smile!

Disappearing Nine Patch Update

I joined Julie Cefalu’s Disappearing Nine Patch Quilt Along, and have really enjoyed the process.

I have completed turning my 20 nine patch blocks into disappearing nine patch blocks. Fun!

I have also sewn all of these blocks into a flimsy!  It was windy, but I did manage to get a couple of photos.

Julie has a link up for her participants.  I am headed over there to see all of the fun variations that are linked up!

Sew Let’s Quilt Along Segment 2 Wrap Up

 Block 9 of  Segment 2 of the Sew Let’s Quilt Along QAL is finished.

This fun block includes appliqued lettering.  I am going to show the back so that you can see that the letters are machine stitched…it is difficult to see from the front.

I changed the lettering from the original design.  The cute block design is called “In Stitches” designed by Kathleen McCormick.

To wrap up Segment 2, participants are asked to show a photo of our four blocks together.

Block 8, or the third block in Segment 2 of the Lets Sew Quilt Along is a cute pincushion design by Sherry Shish of Powered by Quilting.

The block is as easy, or embellished, as you would like!

I chose to machine applique my tomato pincushion.  I used a silver metallic thread to machine stitch the pin shafts.  

I also drew and machine appliqued a strawberry to the pincushion.  Stitching by hand, I embellished with a stem stitch and a chain stitch.

I may use buttons for the pin heads after putting this project together.  

Or I may not.
