Roll Roll Cotton Boll

 I finished the top in the nick of time to get the final step and border tomorrow. And yes, two sections of half square triangles are on wrong. I can live with it. I messed up one of the blocks too and put a different pink half on another pink half and I can live with that too! This has been fun but I am ready to slow the pace. Thanks Bonnie!!
Here is another block from Beyond the Cherry Tree.

 You all had some great suggestions for organizing and working on my hand projects. Thank you all so much who commented. I have a plan and hope to share that when the mystery frenzy is over.

Because I am keeping the parts to Midnight Stars fairly simple I'll plan on posting step 2 on Monday.

  5. If you can't see it ride by on a galloping horse, it isn't a mistake.
    I had to really look to find it.
    Looks lovely to me.

  11. Your RRCB looks great! I'm still working on mine and it might be a while till I'm ready for the border. I must be a very slow qilter. I am looking forward to seeing what Bonnie has planned for the border though!

  17. Looking very good! I am still not a big fan of the string pieced blocks but they look a lot better IN the quilt than just by themselves.

    I like your folk art "Humble" touch...

  34. You are amazing Lori! Bonnie's project is HUGE! and you're right on the money! Fab work as usual.

    Like you I'm going slow with your Midnight Stars QAL too. I havent picked out the fabric but will do it today. The least thing I enjoy is being stressed by my hobby!

  38. Your top looks beautiful so far. I am only on step 3.
    The new applique block is pretty too. I still love that project but just don't have time right now for any more projects.

    ReplyDelete
  39. So beautiful! I love the block and the way it all turned out. Now I have to add that to my want to do list! Thanks for posting the picture!

  40. Lori, I messed up a couple of the RRCB blocks too but if anyone notices and points them out to me I'll make sure they don't inherit it when I'm gone LOL.

  41. Lori your cotton boll quilt is beautiful. I got 4 blocks with the HST going the wrong way, am I ripping...no way. I plan them for the corners so it will look intentional. You have done a super job.

    ReplyDelete
  42. The RRCB is awesome and I love all the details of it. Congrats on the finish. Jane.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lori, it looks spectacular! And it seems like you just started it. I'm still in shock from the 600 HST you made.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Congrats on finishing your RRBC top! It looks fantastic and I love your borders. Don't fret of a few misaligned HST...I have some myself and they didn't get ripped. It is hard to find them when the quilt top is altogether. I am still working on mine, I am making a smaller version but need 16 blocks so must make one more and maybe another string. I am nursing a sinus cold this week so anything needing thought is on hold. I am doing my midnight star blocks.
