WIP Wednesday 2.22.12

This week I worked on cutting out plain 9.5" blocks for the layout I have planned for the eclipse blocks that I won in the Block Lotto.  I have received all of the eclipse blocks (44 of them).  Every time I received another squishy in the mail I embroidered the first name of the person who sent it and the person's location (with machine embroidery, of course.)  I have all of the plain blocks cut.  Hopefully tomorrow I'll have time to play with them and the color layout.  It just looks like a couple stacks of nothing right now.  I can't wait to see how they look together.  The colors are so bright.

Join me on the Block Lotto Blog

There's still time to get in on the February Block Lotto.  It's a heart sampler theme.  Check it out!

I made seven more 3.5" house blocks this week.  I am currently caught up with making one each day.

 
Speaking of the Block Lotto, I also put together the Pineapple Blossom blocks I won in the May Block Lotto, 2011.  LOVE love LoVe the way this quilt looks with the sashing and border!  I haven't decided how to piece the back yet, but I know it will be pieced.  It measures 82 x 94.
 
 
 
I am considering picking out colors for the NY Beauty QA.  I really enjoy paper piecing, but do I really need another project going on right now?  I usually wait until my husband is working out of town to quilt big quilt tops...  Some of these quilts will be on hold for a while...  Hmmmmm.

  1. Love what you did with the Pineapple blocks. Looking forward to seeing the eclipse blocks together. I like the idea of putting people's names on them.
