100 all done!!
This week I have made some economy blocks following a tutorial on Rita`s blog Red Pepper Quilts. I was using up the few scraps I had that were big enough and ended up with 51 5.5" squares. Think I will need to make at least 19 more but preferably another 49 before I can make it into a quilt so it is now on back burner till I have more fabric I can use. I have enjoyed doing these as they are only simple and only took a day and a half which is quick for me. One has not had its photo taken as I found it on the floor later!
I follow Sarah at http://sewmeblog.blogspot.com/2014/01/bee-blessed-january-2014.html hope I have the link right! She was asking for some Greek cross blocks so thought I would have a go and made some which have found their way to Ireland.
not sure what has happened here, there are only 5 blocks really but the collage has put the first one in twice. I have sent 4 to Sarah and kept one as a reference for myself in case I want to do some more.
Sorry the link does not seem to have worked but I did try.
Being quite new to patchwork I was surprised how so many patchworkers did not seem to complete quilts but had so many UFO`s, when I was just doing my hardanger and things I only worked on one project at a time usually and did not start another till the one I was doing was complete, now I understand why patchworkers work in a different way having 2 quilts waiting to be quilted and lots of assorted blocks which I keep in a large hat box. not sure what they are waiting for!
