Weekend Finishes

Managed to get a few blocks done so far this weekend. Still working on a few that might also get done, but I MUST start doing some machine quilting today! Until last year, I always quilted a top before finishing another, but my flimsies just started to stack up last year. There must be at least 5 tops ready to go. Some of them even are layered and waiting by the machine! Yikes! I start today!

What you see here is triangle T10, Precious Gems with 34 pieces (regular and paper pieced), E7 Bread Basket with 37 pieces (regular and paper pieced)(this block was a redo), and E5 Rising Sun with 18 pieces (paper pieced and applique). 2 more blocks from row E are in the works as is triangle T12. T11 looks really hard, will have to think on that one a bit!

I'd also like to start a Mariner's Compass this week. Our quilt group is starting a new progressive in March and the project is one where you bring something to the group that you have started, but never finished. I really want to finish all the projects I've started so something different will have to happen. I love, love, love Mariner's Compasses and New York Beauties and have never made a quilt with either one, so I'm challenging myself to do one or both-with existing stash fabrics! I'm really excited about it! Can't wait to show you what happens!

Until then, I must go get a walk in before it starts raining again! Tomorrow I'll show you the finished block for February from Gail Pan's free BOM!

Happy Stitching!
