cozy afternoon quilt, disappearing nine patch quilt, Blossom Hearts BOM blocks

At last the Cozy afternoon quilt I did as a BOM in 2015 with Jacquelynne Steves is completed.  This is the first time I have set blocks on point a bit of a struggle but think I did okay,  it measures 64" square and sits on the bed nicely  comes up to the pillows so do not need to turn it down when in bed I will be using it as a lap quilt when it is cold





This is the 5th mini in the BOM  called chirp as there should be little birds appliqued  in the calico squares which Jacquelynne is running at the moment.  There are 6 in total and have one left to do next month,  All the quilts in this series are appliqued but that is a bit beyond me at the moment so I will be adding embroidery to them all when the 6th is made.  It will be 26" square when completed


This is the disappearing none patch that I kept cutting and adding more to now quilted and finished,  I have a stool that Granny made,  she passed away in 1956 which has a tapestry top now pretty bald in places,  this fits nicely on top but not attaching it as do not want to remove Granny`s stitchery



These are the first 10 blocks in the Blossom Hearts BOM    they are all using half square triangles which are made using various ways,  I am liking when you make 8 out of 2 large squares  this is so much quicker when you need 8 all the same



Not sure what is next on the list but think I will quilt my second lone star quilt as that is ready all pinned uup and saying  Quilt me please.

Well, if a quilt talks already, then it surely is time to follow the wish ;-)

Nice tops!

WOW….you’ve been super productive…..great job setting the blocks on point….a look I always like but never happy to take the trouble to do the math!!

Gaia said...

Love the colours, embroidery and the pattern on cozy afternoon quilt. You have been doing lots of sewing.

Monica said...

Congratulations on finishing Cozy Afternoon. I knew you would get the hang of the setting -- it looks great! A few stitchery birds will be a nice personalization on the new quilt. I'm very impressed with how busy you've been!

You certainly have taken to quilting like a duck to water. What a beautiful array of quilts and blocks you are always working on.

Anneliese said...

I love all quilts but specially the disappearing nine-patch. And I wonder, how you did it. It is so different to those I make.

Jillian said...

You are amazing, Margaret. Cosy Afternoon is lovely - and a great size. It's a terrific idea to supplement your granny's stool - a great way to honour her and her work. I love the way I he bigger pattern emerges on the mini quilt. Do show us the birds when you get around to them.

I concur with Jillian, you are very amazing Margaret. I really envy your diligence. Your quilts and colours all look so professional. congratulations on so much work so well done my dear.

What a Work In Progress report! So much to see! Congratulation on setting the blocks on point, well done. You can have a cosy afternoon in bed or on the sofa and enjoy your work. Embroidery is a good substitute for appliqué! Good idea to protect your grandmother's stitching with your new mini quilt. Keep up the good work, Margaret!

Celtic Thistle said...

Congratulations on another finish, and what a finish it is too!

I like your idea of adding embroidery instead of applique, it is those personal touches that make a quilt to Me.

Rose said...

Now THAT's a lot of progress! I'm 2 behind on the Modern Sampler, but I'll catch up next week when I have no car all day every day. =) You have really kept up with everything, and I'm impressed with all these - especially a beautiful finish to tuck around you on chilly nights!

Susan Hook said...

The lap quilt is a beauty, I can imagine you curled up in it on a cold night watching the television!

Anneliese said...

Now I came back to your post to have again a look at your disappearing 9-patch - and I like it even more. I made my first one - I made it a bit bigger - and this does not work. I likel your colours.

Mary Ellen said...

Everything looks really nice and nicely done. You have come a long way since you started blogging. It must give you a very satisfied feeling.

Anita said...

The BOM blocks looks great ! Both embroidered and appliqué birds would look good.

Benta AtSLIKstitches said...

Busy lady! They all look fab, well done! Xxx

Sarah said...

You did more than ok on your on point quilt, it's a real beauty! There's such a sense of satisfaction when a big one like that is finished! I'm a big fan of disappearing nine patch it's a great pattern and so many BOM samples completed!

I've never set blocks on point either so you are ahead of me! I've designed quilt patterns on point but never actually sewn one lol

Susan said...

You have been very busy and productive! Thanks for linking up at Midweek Makers

Quilter Kathy said...

You have been very busy... congrats on finishing Cozy Afternoon... great job!

scraphappy said...

So busy. So sweet that you have a quilt for your stool without removing the work already there.

Magpie Sue said...

I like your plan to embroider birds instead of appliqueing them. Congratulations on getting so much done!

So nice to see you on Rainbow Scrap Challenge. There are not very many skilled at embroidery as you are, a nice addition to the mix. Making a topper for your granny,s footstool was a clever idea. Have a good week with June on the way.
