Magnolia Quilt Finish


Linking up with Quilt Schmilt

To Do Tuesday #2 2023


For the Week 3rd January

  • continue to work on the Chilhowie Bonnie Hunter blocks. The final clue came out last Friday and it finishes off the quilt. It has quite a few steps in it so now I will go slow as I finish, at the moment I am doing the sashing between the blocks which involves some quarter square triangles so will take a little while.
  • The next Sewcialites block later in the week.  Done. I just did it in the main colours and the other blue/yellow and the 3 inch one I am leaving out this week. This is block 10 designed by Lori Holt.Sewcialites 10.
  • Complete doing the hand binding on my Magnolia quilt.  Finally done. I used Riley Blake Anne of Green Gables fabric and the pattern is by Chelsi Sttratton.  I made it smaller than the pattern.Magnolia finish!

And a few other things that found there way in. I know many of you call them squirrels but we have no squirrels in my country so no name for them!!

I decided to do A Quilting Life BOM for 2023 even though I had decided I wouldn’t. But only doing the 6″ version and in boys fabric that can be turned into a boys quilt and uses up scraps of fabric left overs!6 Bom 23

I also took on moving my A Quilting Life BOM 2022 further along during January, towards the finish line. My 12″ top is done so I put my 6″ blocks together into a top and its the perfect size our NICU like so eventually I’l’ quilt it up for that.6 AQL 2022
I also started making a backing for the 12″ block one and that is almost finished.

Week of 10th January

  • Continue to work on Chilhowie Bonnie Hunter mystery on the sashing.
  • Next Sewcialites block 
  • Finish backing for 12″ A Quilting Life BOM 2022
  • Whatever takes my eye!

  1. Kathryn you have so many beautiful projects on the go! Your Magnolia quilt and a Quilting Life quilts are incredible. How sweet that the new Quilting Life blocks will make a NICU quilt. Good luck with this week’s list. Thank you for linking with TDT. Happy stitching 😉


  2. I’m really enjoying your many blocks. I’m looking forward to see Chilhowie all done. It’s going to be awesome. The A Quilting Life blocks will certainly make a cute boy quilt. Those can be difficult.

  3. Hi Kathryn! No squirrels in New Zealand?! I didn’t know that. Hmm. I’ll have to think about a solution to that problem. HAHA! Magnolia!! OMG, it turned out so beautiful. I know it was a long process but the finish and the wait were well worth it. I love the color binding you selected – is it a darker purple? It really pulls that color out of all the blocks. I love it and I hope you do, too. Does it have a home? Good luck with this week’s list. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
