Wednesday

I've been working more and I tell ya, it is interfering with my sewing time! LOL I got a bobbin wound and my machine set up with the correct color thread and that is as far as I've gotten on my Sally Post blocks this week. I'm hopeful every day though!

Marsha finished her medallion quilt from the sewalong Randy and I did. You can see her beauty HERE.  If you are looking for a fun sewalong the center applique pattern can be found HERE. 

Now, for a lack of my quilts to show I'll share with you some lovely antique 4 block quilts from a quilt show.  These are so fantastic!!








Make it a fantastic Wednesday!!

  2. Wow - these are fabulous! I love, love that last one! I like the cheddar added to the red and green and what a great border. Did you see these recently? I hope you can get to your machine in the next day or two :0)

  6. Thanks for the four block feast today. That working does cramp one's style, doesn't it. I appliqued one bud last night and that's the extent of my sewing for the last three weeks.

  14. I enjoyed seeing Marsha's quilt very much. It has given me a nudge, mine is still on my design wall waiting for layering. In my defence, we have had renovations and a new sewing room taking place over the last 12 months!
    Thanks for showing these quilts. I particularly like the grey trees, I would never have thought of using grey but it's stunning.

  15. Wow, love those quilts. Can we ever see enough red/green/cream appliques? I doubt it!

  16. Thanks for the eye candy... they are lovely!
    I still think it's unfair to work 5 days a week, and only be rewarded with 2 days off... it really does cut into sewing/quilting/blogging time!

  20. Ohhhh those are awesome quilts. I don't know that I've ever noticed such quilts as being comprised of four giant blocks. Very inspiring, thanks!

  21. Impressive group, Lori. Making only 4 blocks is interesting, but I'm also looking closely at the borders. There's a similarity among them, with the winding vines, but they run the full range from simple to totally filling in the space. Veddy interesting indeed.
    Hopefully you'll find more sewing time soon.
