Piecing and Quilting


I got a lot of machine stitching done yesterday – all of the brick units are now ready to start to sew into rows.  I divided them all up by color so there won’t be an over concentrated amount in any area.  I think I counted about 59 different colors – something like that – I know I pulled a lot of fat quarters and partial fat quarters from the shelves.  I used up all the fabric that was left over from Wagon’s West as well, there is fabric in here left over from Patchwork of the Crosses from several years ago and all sorts of bits and pieces – now let’s see how it turns out – it will be one big scrappy quilt for sure.  There are – should be – 363 units at least but it is ok if it is off I still had a small stack cut out that were left over that I can use.  Row by row chain piecing it should get done quickly – not that it has to by any means – it is just another “scrappy” quilt!  No home in mind for this one right now.


I will spend some time hand quilting today and join the Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy’s and Quilting is More Fun Than Housework and Podunk Pretties.

    This is growing by leaps and bounds ; love the bright colors and it’s nice that you are using leftover fabric from this, that and the other project 🙂

    What pattern are you making with your bricks? That looks like a great way to use all kinds of scraps! Loved the glimpse of your circles, too – the background makes them look like they are floating out in space!

    I too love scrappy quilts, especially when you use some of that wonderful older stash! Always evokes lovely memories.

    Karen you are always on a roll. Not sure how you do it all. I am looking forward to more time to stitch again.

  • Deb Aug 7, 2016

    Love how you are outlining the circles. That is going to be a fun quilt to snuggle with.
