A Finish

It's small, but it's finished and it's hanging on the wall.


Here it is...Temecula's Little Box of Chocolate.  I first saw the quilt on Janet O's blog Rogue Quilter.  She has made 2.  I want to make a couple more for gifts.

Next up....more blocks.

I finished 8 more friendship blocks.  I now have 16.  However I'm not real happy with the bottom 2.  The floral print is what I am using for the final border for this quilt.  We'll see if they make it or not.

I made 2 more blocks for Pat Sloan's Solstice Challenge,

Block 6

Block 7

These are 12" blocks.  She just posted Block 8 and it's going to be 18".  This is going to be an interesting quilt.

And finally Sally Post Block #10.  I also have Blocks 11 and 12 prepped and ready for some evening applique.

Today when I was checking out blocks I follow I was excited to see that Barbara Brackman included a photo of my Westering Women on her blog.  I was so thrilled.  Today I am quilting another block.  When finished I am down to 10 blocks needing quilting.  Slow and steady gets the job done.

Thanks for stopping by.  

Hugs, Cathy

The border fabric you used for Box of Chocolates is from one of my all time favorite lines of fabric. At least I think it is.....Jan Patek and Liberty Gardens.

Reading Karen's comment made me smile. I was going to say that your border fabric is what Karen used to make the basket in the lovebird block I just bordered with HSTs. It is a beautiful fabric and makes a great border on your little quilt!
Maybe you will like the friendship blocks with the floral print better when all of the blocks are mixed up and the border is on.
Another pretty Sally Post block.
And congrats on being on Barbara's blog!

I love your Box of Chocolate quilt, so pretty. You are making good progress on your different projects.

Lovely, as usual! I think the two floral blocks will look good with the floral border- makes it a little unpredictable.
Cute Valentine quilt too.

That little "Box of Chocolates" is so adorable! Your Sally Post is coming along nicely. Evening applique is so relaxing. Enjoy! And, I did see your quilt on Barbara's blog. Awesome!

You have been busy, and it's nice to have a finish in-between all those blocks, isn't it? Thank you for linking to TGIFF.
