Whooping it up on Friday

Only three days left in my sewing vacation.  I think I've made pretty good use of my time.  I did finish my first quilt for H2H, I was so excited about it that I posted it yesterday.  It's a Half Moon Modern Log Cabin quilt, you can find it here. Such an easy pattern for a jelly roll.  I pieced it in one day and quilted it the next.  I have the directions on the blog post and also have the EQ7 project on the "tutorials and EQ7" tab.  You don't really need the EQ7 project, it's just nice to have if you want to play around with different size logs,etc.  So one quilt down.

And I started on the next.  This is the pattern that I did for the scrap challenge that Sarah hosted a while ago.  I thought it would be great to use the pattern for Hands 2 Help.  I'm using the bonus triangle from my 16 Swoon blocks. Enough to make 25 blocks.  I just have 8 more to go.  I had to sew the first 16 together, I really wanted to see how it looks.  I have this block and the quilt on the EQ7 project tab as well.  The EQ7 project has 3.5 inch unfinished squares.  This uses 2.5 inch unfinished squares. That's what size the bonus triangle turned out to be so that's what I used :)

I started marking my Made in Cherry quilt.  It could take me months to get this thing marked. I'm only marking the yellow parts and doing an all over  something in the star.  Marking is not my favorite part. The quilt really is flatter than it looks here, I'm just a lazy photographer.

One last thing to show.  I did manage to get 2 more Dear Jane blocks done. 

Don't forget to stop by Sarah's to see what everyone is whooping about.

Ok, time to get back to my sewing vacation :)


  1. My gosh girl, you've been one busy beaver......... I love your colours. I need to take a leaf out of your book, may be then I can complete my own quilts. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have to tell you that every time I visit your page and see those owls on top, I get the biggest smile on my face. The novelty never wears off!

    Looks like you've been busy. Make sure to reward yourself for all that work with some extra chocolate this weekend!

  3. I love your Swoon bonus triangles quilt - just fabulous. Looks like you've been having a good sewing vacation - enjoy these last few days.

  4. Congrats on your finish for H2H! That black/white fabric looks very familiar....

  5. Oh, and btw, once you retire, don't plan on getting that much done in a week. LOL

  6. Your made in cherry is going to be spectacular when it's done! I really need to get on the quilting for mine, too. I'm just not feeling it yet!

  7. What a fun quilt from a jelly roll, I'm going to have to go look at your project........I seem to have jelly rolls sitting around!


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
