June, July and August

I did get a little behind on my Patchwork Barn blocks while I worked on my house up north.  I have now caught up.

Here are the June blocks.

My favorite is the one on the far left.  These blocks were tricky.

July blocks are up next.

I love the basket block.

August oh August.

The one on the left is my favorite.  The one in the middle gave me a run for my money.

Its now onto the middle barn block with its applique for September and then the borders.

I can’t wait to see how it all turns out.

Happy Quilting

So May blocks are finally done

It’s funny how life gets in the way some times.  I have been very busy trying to get the place up north ready to move in.  If all goes well I should be retiring in 364 days.

The kitchen is coming together nicely.  Here are some before and after pictures.

 

I did get some time though to work on my blocks.  I got my May blocks done and some of June.

May blocks are as follows:

 

The bottom one is my favorite for May.

I also was able to finish Hunter’s college quilt top and its on Ava as I write.  I should be able to post June’s blocks and Hunter’s quilt soon

Hope you are getting time to quilt this summer.

The Blocks of February

Here are the blocks of February.

This one was an easy block to put together.   Next was a block that was a little harder.

The last block almost took me out.  As you can see it is a little wonky.

It is going to look great on the quilt though as this is another one of those blocks that will appear to float on the quilt.

I also quilted two UFO’s this month.  Will post pictures soon once the binding is sewn down on them.  My UFO stack is getting depleted.  I LOVE THAT!

For those of you who consider Sunday the last day of the week, I hope you end your week with some quilting.  For those of you who consider Sunday the first day of the week, I hope you start your week with some quilting.

Patchwork Barn the fabric

My fabric arrived from Craftsy.  I placed my order on the 3rd and received my package on the 6th.  I did not pay for faster shipping so it came really quick.  The fabrics are called High Society by Boundless.  Below are the color palettes.  The one on the left is mine the one on the right is the original.  I will start making the blocks when I return from the annual family ice fishing weekend.  It is very cold here in upper Michigan and we have a broken pipe so no plumbing.  Waiting for the plumber to call me back.  In the mean time we are using a porta potty from our camping days.  Good Times!

Hope you all have a nice weekend with lots of quilting.
