One Block at a Time


Linking up with Quilt Schmilt

Last weeks plans

  • Quilt my BOM A Quilting Life 2022 – just a bit every day, mostly going to do stitch in the ditch and something in borders. I’ve made a start and doing a block or so a day. Nothing fancy, stitching in the ditch – and I want a fairly soft feel to it. 
  • Make sewcialites blocks when they are published. Done. Didn’t do the 3 inch for this one. This is number 12 I so we are about half way through.  Designed by. Barbara Groves of Me & My Sister Designs.  Sewcialites 12
  • Make BOM Mystery quilt from FQS block that arrived last, about six or seven I think. Done. FQS Mystery Block
  • Whatever takes my fancy.     And as well I sewed together the blocks of No. 2 BOM from A Quilting Life 2022. This was a very scrappy one, made mostly from half square triangles I had left from other projects. Will leave it now, want to put a border on it but I don’t have any fabric to work in with it at present.Scrappy AQL BOM 2022 I also made one more block in the scrappy Irish Chain, so now I have three. I can now make one more block and then I have to wait a few weeks for the accent fabric to arrive. Scrappy Irish Chain 3
  • I also stitched together and put on the inner border on the Chilhowie Bonnie Hunter QAL.Now there will only be the outer border.Border 1 Chilhowie

Finally my calendar arrived from Snapfish, I was about to email them when it dropped at my door today!  NZ Post is very very slow!  Calendar 2023

This Week’s Plans

  • I am going to work on the final border for the Chilhowie top and then I can call that part of it finished.
  • Sewcialites block of course when it publishes.
  • Continue to quilt to BOM from A Quilting Life 2022
  • Anything that takes my fancy.
