Playing Catch Up

Over at Patchwork Posse we are doing a charm-a-long Quilt. The new blocks come out the first Wednesday of the month. I was behind by 4 blocks.

I like how the red and blue give the block some movement.

This one is my favorite so far. I like the blue star. Another one of those square in a square blocks again. Eventually I will be able to make these the right size and without losing any points/corners.

I've been having fun playing with color placement. I like having just a handful of colors to work with. Makes it easier to decide where to place everything.

Now I am all caught up with this quilt a-long. On to the next project...after a day of rest. I over worked the shoulder and it isn't very happy with me. The sewing part is easy now, it's just the iron and the rotary cutter. I don't have much strength in the shoulder yet but I just couldn't sit back and not work on any quilts. I could hear my sewing machine calling my name. "R o b i n...come out and p l a y. Just for a couple minutes." Yea right, I've spent at least 4 hours a day for the past 3 days "playing" :) It felt great to get things done though.

Oh my gosh, I am so in love with those blocks!! I just love the colors, they look wonderful. Now do not work to hard and make yourself hurt!


Where have I been--somehow I am a couple posts behind in reading yours--me bad!!! Love the Schnibbles--I had some trouble with squaring up those blocks too--finally did it my way--but did notice when I sewed them together that there was another 1/4 inch on each block going around them--yet the pattern showed them differently--but I like mine--so will leave it!!!! Love Suzi's blanket too--now you go slow lady--no rehurting that shoulder or I will come down there and --and---
Hugs, Di

Your blocks look great. The blue fabric really gives movement to the blocks. Hope you aren't paying too high a price for 'playing'.
