Partying On!

I am now caught up...this morning I finished blocks 3 & 4 of the Pinwheel Party. I'm having fun with these and they go together so fast. Now that I'm 1/3 of the way finished, I'm asking there a right and wrong side of this Kona Snow? I can't seem to tell.

Here are blocks A-3 and B-1

Now I wait til Monday when the directions for block 4 will be released!

Pinwheel Party Blocks 1 & 2

Ok, I am officially crazy! I am multi-quilting again. This is quilt number 4 that I have in the making, but it looked so good and is very, very easy. I just had to jump into the party. We do a block a week and I am working hard to catch up to block number 4--I only joined 4 weeks late and I did block 1 & 2 this afternoon. I am using '30's reproductions and Kona Snow White as the background.

This is a portion of my stash of '30's reproductions on top of the Kona Snow. I have many more '30's fabrics in my fabric stash. Most, if not all, will find a place in this Pinwheel quilt. Block A-1 and A-2
Stay tuned for blocks A-3 and B-1 coming right up!!

Civil War Tribute Feb Block

This is the February block for the Civil War Tribute quilt. There are four of these blocks in the quilt--all the same. At least they will be. Notice one of them is a little larger because of the spacers added to the top and bottom of the block. I didn't like putting this together very much. Every join had 2-3 triangle seams coming together--blech!! No fun, much bulk. After the second block, I quit obsessing over points and seams and direction of fabric and just hoped for the best so don't look too closely at it. It looks great on a galloping horse!! Now for the March block!!
