Joseph’s Coat–Moving Along


Finally I got back to Joseph’s Coat today – I thought I would work on Star Crazy but other than 5 or 10 minutes of quilting I didn’t do it!  Just didn’t feel like it.

I have been busy cutting pieces off and on today and I have enough ready to get started on another diagonal row.  The darkest color on the left is what I left off with on the last row, I think there are four pieces and I will use them up first and then continue to the middle color.


Ready to pin – while I was getting this next layout ready I realized I had not sewn my black circles on the last row I had put on – I had been so out of routine the last two weeks with my mom having been sick and then getting her ready to move I had forgotten where I left off!


Pinned loosely into sections to start sewing – this is from the very top of the row stacked to the bottom.


I’m not positive but I think one more long diagonal row is needed before I start to square off – or do you say rectangle off Smile I think it will be a little longer than wide.  I will figure that out after all of this gets sewed together and attached.  Next up is purples/lavenders!

I just heard from my sister and she is pretty sure we move mom on Wednesday – she will find out for sure in the morning.  The place is small and we have quite a few helping so we might be able to get the move done and the clean up of the old apartment all done on that one day – I hope so.  We are all ready for this just to be done and so is mom. I think mom is ready to get into her new routine as well and get settled – moving at 87 years old is unsettling I think.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    I just love this quilt, and ‘watching it grow’. Are you hand sewing all of it?

    Karen, I’m so loving your Jacob’s Coat quilt. The shading of the colors is simply awesome and I love the addition of the circles.

    I noticed that it looks like you print off your pattern on freezer paper. Do you then use a pencil to mark around the shape so that you know where to sew? I can’t wait to see this one finished.

  • Love the addition of the pink – looks fabulous!

    It sounds like she is going with the flow.

    I have found that if I don’t work on what I feel like working on–I will waste the whole day doing nothing.

  • lots of fun reading through your blog. Enjoyed the pictures of yard work. We are having a winter storm–rain/sleet turning to snow tonight–no yard work here! Maybe in another 6-8 weeks!
