Linking up with Texas Gal Quilts

I am enjoying the sunshine here in New Zealand and sewing away because it brings me great satisfaction. Being retired means I have time. Monday, the day I am writing this post, I have set aside for a bit of housework and planning for the coming week in sewing and reading.

Goals last week were:

  1. Keep quilting log cabin Queen quilt and finish all the feather parts.DoneHouse of log cabin
  2. Complete block 2 of Riley Blake Designs Challenge. Done

    .

  3. Complete block 2 of Sweet Dreams QALSweet Dreams 2
  4. Sew all grey blocks for Nine Patch Square Dance Quilt. Done. So all blocks now finished.

Goals for week of 18th of January week.

  • Quilt the nine log cabins on my Queen quilt.
  • Complete Block 3 of Riley Blake Challenge
  • Complete Block 3 of Sweet Dreams QAL.
  • Make a block or two for Magnolia Quilt I have started by one block! Chelsi Stratton design.
  • Start sashing the Nine Patch Square Dance blocks.
  • Go through a couple of baskets of scraps and separate into what I will use and what I will pass on to somebody who might be able to use them for small handmade projects she does.
  • I’ve also started a leaders and enders project – until of course I have all the sum of its parts and then it becomes its own project. This week I will be making wonky star blocks as I go. I saw this pattern in an old magazine and have been wanting to make something like it.  I will be making it smaller because I don’t want a 90″ long quilt but will see how the pattern looks as I build it. Possibly 60 by 70.  American and Patchwork Magazine No. 159Rustic Charm

  1. That’s a great take on the Wonky Star block. I have had that on my block list for some time. But I really must get some projects closer to the finish line. One day at a time!

  2. Hi Kathryn! I’ve always thought that feather quilting is just perfect for log cabin blocks. I’ve wanted to do one myself but I am not a fan of making the log cabin block – too many made at one time back in the 90s. Ooh, that Rustic Charm quilt looks beautiful – what color palette have you decided on? {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Ha Roseanne, yes I can imagine getting weary of making log cabin blocks, although I have a love for them! Have sort of dark fabrics for the Rustic charm quilt mainly, Marcus fabrics – Prairie Dry Goods, plus bits and pieces from the stash.

  3. Love your log cabin quilt, and wow on the AP quilt you are wanting to start! Your RBD challenge block is so pretty – I need to catch up on mine! I didn’t realize you are in New Zealand!
