I've have enough log cabin blocks completed to put together a queen size quilt top.
However, I decided to follow Anka Treasure's pattern and hand applique flowers on some of the blocks. This has been a work in progress for almost a year. I do see the light at the end of the tunnel on this quilt as I only have a few more flowers to stitch before I can start assembling the blocks into rows. But, like I said....I am doing the applique by hand.
In March, I was able to sew together enough 5x5 flannel blocks to assemble a queen size quilt top, but I still need to lay the entire thing out to determine what pattern I was going to follow. I feel like I have lost my interest in completing this quilt. Its just sitting in a wicker basket staring at me each time I sit at my machine.
I have about 1/3 of the star blocks completed. I still love this pattern, material, and color selection. I am excited to try and get this top finished, but the nice weather and life is standing in the way of getting this quilt completed.
What more can I say about this gem! I just need time to sew!
I am a participant in a Block of the Month for the Civil War 150th Anniversary Quilt. I only have four months completed. I became frustrated in Month 5, because I was shorted some fabric and I just tossed it to the side figuring I would try and find some substitute fabric at a later time..... and later has now been 4 months long. I still don't feel like sewing on this one, but its going to be fabulous once I get it completed.
And, I am still regularly working on A Little Porch Time, and hand appliqueing the blocks. This is also a Block of the Month, and I have two months left to finish. This quilt is just for the fun of it, and I've enjoyed working on it. It will probably be displayed as a wall hanging when finished.
Whew.....I am just overwhelmed! I probably just need to take things one day at a time.
