15 blocks............

I got a few of the blocks sewn for my new 16 patch quilt.  The fabrics were cut when I cut this quilt.  It is going to be a lot lighter than I expected but I like it.  This is 15 out of 63 blocks.








I have a tutorial (downloadable PDF) on the free resources page on my website.  All seams are going in opposite directions as you join the blocks into a quilt top if you follow my directions.  







I have 7 more blocks here ready to sew and many strips ready to sew together.  I have to cut some more strips today for 24 more blocks.

That is going to be a sharp quilt! That was great that you got some help doing a few jobs around the house. I could have use an extra pair of hands sorting those rocks! LOL!!

Thanks for the links to the pdf's - I downloaded a couple of them. It was good to see your pillowcase tut - I've made my own before and it's the only style you can buy here in the UK. When I see those 'magic' pillowcase tut's, although they look nice with the trim I don't like that you can see the pillow inside. We have another warm sunny dry day today - just right for me while doing some de-cluttering :)

Thanks so much, Wanda, for sharing your expertise in the online tutorials. I have been teaching my niece to quilt and these will come in handy in getting her started. I learned some tips too!

Thank you so much for the link to the tutorial, I clicked on there to find more! I like the photos of both sides of the seams and all made things much more clear to me. My first quilt was trip around the world, machine pieced in a tube and hand quilted - but your method is so much better. You have given me the confidence to make another now. Also the fabric stash - that has been an extremely useful tutorial. Thank you again.
And as I see the current postings (May 2018) - your peonies are going to be fabulous this year! I hope rain won't come to spoil the blooms - as is the usual thing here in my part of England. I am now thinking maybe they will need their own umbrellas! I very much enjoy seeing all your plants, indoors and out.

Kindest regards
