I began cutting and piecing the HST for my husband's Birthday quilt, and have quite a stack completed. He helped me design a Ty-like layout in EQ6, and I think I will actually be sticking to this plan (remains to be seen - that is what I always think!)
My next NewFO is actually an old UFO that I have mentioned in past posts. Now that I have my design wall clear, I have space to play with some blocks I made about 7 yrs ago. (I thought it was longer than that, but re-calculated!).
I have oodles of triangles and blocks for this, but here are some I have been playing with:
And, this week I will also be playing with yet another layout for thesel. Did I mention I have a lot of these boat blocks? So, I am not sure yet if this will be a full quilt, or maybe two baby quilts, but I am having fun playing with them. I made a template yesterday to give them a bit of a twist, and I will share that progress with next week's BOM post.
I have lots of Block Talk saved for Monday!
Linking up as well to Lily's Fresh Sewing Day. Have you seen the star quilt finish she just posted, made by her Siblings Together Guild? My favorite quilts have always been those made by many people. I love the surprise when something with an improvisational aspect comes together as if it was planned all along, and the story behind them makes them all the more special.
