Auntie Green’s Progress


I have been struggling to keep up with the monthly Auntie Green BOM shipments from Homestead Hearth.  I still have this months to stitch which is all that intertwining brown vine and I am really not looking forward to this because it is so boring.
Fitting the vine on the fabric that was left was a struggle for me and I ended up having to remove some pieces and rearrange them.
If anyone out there reading this decides to make this quilt I would recommend marking the vine placement before you start the floral appliqué in the corners then there shouldn’t be a problem.

I think I need to put it back up on the wall and take another look because looking at this picture that top right corner looks way off.
If you hear a  LOUD noise it will be me screaming if I have to do that vine over.

Have a great week and happy stitching,
Nancy

OK, no screaming necessary.  It was just my fabulous  picture taking skills.

Encouraged to Post

I met with my little quilting group last Thursday and was told they had all seen enough of Chester Criswell's Block 20 and would I please post something new.  So today I thought I would update things a little and put up some pictures of the little quilts I have finally gotten around to finishing.




This first one was made from a bunch of waste triangles I had left over from other quilts.  The little half square triangle blocks are 1 inch finished.

This little quilt was made from some left over Drunkards Path blocks.




Spring Nine Patch and Simple Shoofly are two I made from Temecula Quilt Company’s 2013 monthly Mini program.


And this is what happens when you wait too long to post about something.  I can’t remember where this pattern came from any one have an idea?


I believe this one came from Quilts by Cheri but am not sure and when I checked her blog most of her pictures were just black boxes with a triangle and an exclamation point in them.  I wonder what’s up with that?


This last one I made for Lillian’s little 4 year old pre-school class to give to their teacher as an end of the year gift.  Each child (with the help of their mother) chose a special word they thought described their teacher and made a 12 inch hand print block. I put them together in a wall hanging.  From what I have heard it seemed to go over well.
Happy Stitching,
Nancy
