These blocks are from a tutorial by Jessica at SewCraftyJess. She just finished a quilt top with this pattern and I can't wait to do the same once all the blocks trickle in through the mail.
The other project I finished with that fabric was this 73" quilt sleeve. Nothing like a few yards of hand sewing to keep you out of trouble ;-)
I had already made another quilt sleeve last month for my Frost Bank mini quilt.
It's pretty straightforward, just a lot of hand sewing. I used this tutorial. Just note that it's the short ends you sew first. I was confused by the language in the tutorial both times. Fail.
Finally, I selected and cut fabric for six rose star blocks. Not too shabby! I feel like that's the hardest part. I dragged all of my fat quarters with me so that I could see everything I had when I was picking fabrics. If I can just spend a day cutting every few weekends, I think I can stay ahead of the game!
I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced, Sew Much Ado, Someday Crafts, and Rae Gun Ramblings.
Hahaha! I sewed the long edges first too! So glad it's not just me ;-)ReplyDelete

I was just thinking about starting a quilt with these blocks. I think they're beautiful and I love yours!ReplyDelete
