It's Been a Long Journey

And we are getting close to the end of our Dearest Boy journey.

It's time to reveal our next block.  Block 6C "Mother".  

This is such a sweet block but it was also very time consuming.  I was hoping to get ahead on this Sew along but this block took a lot of time.  Three more blocks to go and then we will be working on the center block of the cow.

Be sure to check the other blogs....KarenJulie and Carole have been working along on this quilt.

I have been working on some other projects....

I bought a quilt kit from Connecting Threads a while back and thought it was time to make it.

I love how soft the colors look.  The quilt is 42" x 48" and is the perfect size for a lap or baby quilt.

I recently purchased a pattern from Debby Brown called A LA MODE.  I can be made using fat eights or jelly rolls.  I always have white, cream or grey jelly rolls on hand.  I found a half jelly roll in some bright colors in my stash and used a cream jelly roll to go along with it.  Here is my quilt top.

The top is 48" x 48".  I'm thinking of using it as a picnic quilt.  I can't wait to try this quilt out with a full jelly roll.

And finally I finished another Sally Post block.

I may end up finishing all the blocks by the end of the year...keep my fingers crossed.

That's it for today.  I need to get back in the sewing room and prep some more applique blocks to work on.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day and keep cool

Hugs, Cathy

I had a really bad night last night.  Dog woke me up at 3:00am and I didn't get back to sleep until 7:00am.  So needless to say I was dragging but all day.  I just realized what the date is.  Time to show the next Dearest Boy block.

She's not perfect bu she's done.  And I might say it's an accomplishment to have finished it.  The instructions are lacking and I needed to figure a lot of it on my own.

Hoping to have a better day tomorrow.

Hugs, Cathy

Some Finishes

I'm working on finishing some previous UFO's.  So far this is what I finished.

I finished the Bears Paw quilt top.  Sorry the photo is blurry.  I'm not sure if I like the border or not.  Hubby picked the fabric out.

This close up gives a better view of the border fabric and the bear and tree applique.

Next I finished the block of week "Flower Bouquet" by Pat Sloan.

This turned out to be much larger than I thought.  I am so happy with the way it turned out.  

I'm working on another Pat Sloan BOM called Out of this World.

I'm using a text background and batiks.  This is block 6.

Here are my Cheddarback blocks.  I love how this is turning out.

Come back on the 15th for my version of the next Dearest Boy block.

Thanks for stopping by.  Comments are always welcome.

Hugs, Cathy
