QUILT PROJECTS

I promised you pictures of the blocks I’m (mostly) hand sewing for a quilt–from Material Obsession 2.

Here are two blocks finished:

And here’s one in progress:

They are so much fun to work on.

Here is what my design wall looks like at the moment–now that Celtic Solstice if down:

The red and green quilt and the brown quilt at the top are leader/ender projects.  And, for play, I made a fish block yesterday and cut out a few more blocks…

When I finish quilting “Sails Up” and “Celtic Solstice,” the fish quilt will become a primary task.

The trip to Alewives’ BIG sale (quilt store) was fun yesterday.  Lunch out was, too.  We got home just as the snow started coming down in earnest.

I bought two greens and 7 yards of this ORANGE backing for Celtic Solstice.  The dark green will be a border, and the light green the binding.  The orange just seemed…to fit the quilt.

So…one more border for Celtic Solstice and then, quilting.

What a fun project this Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt has been.
