Another NPNT Block

It has been a week since my last post. The time just gets away so fast. I have been busy, and that always makes the time go faster. I have finished several of the NPTP blocks. They are so much fun! I have also been working on the quilt that Kathy and I are doing. Will show a couple of the blocks from that quilt soon. It is made with 30's fabrics. I may not have been posting, but I have been reading my regular blogs. A lot of you have some really neat projects going. This blogging thing is a real wonder. So many nice people to visit and so many beautiful things to see. Now I must go and cut more strips. My back said for me to take a break, but the break is over.

Veranda Views BOM Block Two

Got this finished a couple of days ago. It is not a very good scan. Or it is a very good scan and I just didn’t get the fabric pressed very well. Now for the wait to see what the next stitchery will be…….

Noah's Ark is Finished

Well, it is done! I really enjoyed doing this BOM and I am pleased with the way it turned out. I purchased a jelly roll at a local quilt shop. It is not a fabric line. Just some very pretty coordinated prints that they put together, and I thought they would be perfect for the borders on this little quilt. When I started cutting out the stitcheries to finish this up, I decided to cut them a little bit larger. I cut them one half inch beyond the embroidered line that goes around each block. I cut my 2 ½ inch jelly roll strips in half to add the borders. I thought I had it all figured out, but as you can see the blocks came out a size that didn’t allow them to be put together like they should have been. I considered adding borders to the little quilt, but every thing I tried seemed to take away from the stitcheries, so I just did a bit of hand quilting, put the binding on and called that good. Even though mine is a little bit different, I plan to keep it! Now I need to find a nice hanger for it. If you click on the picture, you should be able to see it in a bit larger size...

The Ark

This is the last stitchery in the Noah’s Ark BOM. I suppose it is being greedy to hope that Lynette will start another one soon. This one was such fun. I have the stitcheries done and sewn together. All that is left is to sandwich it, do a bit of quilting on it and put on the binding. Will show a picture of it when it is all done!

Nice People, Nice Things......block two

This block went together rather quickly. I have decided not to do the sayings that are supposed to be on the back of each block. Just doing the fronts will be time consuming enough. I am also going to join the seams on the back of the quilt, instead of on the front. I hope that having one block a week ready to show will keep this project...FUN..
