The Blocks are All Quilted!!


I'm happy to report that I've finished quilting the individual blocks that make up Blogger's BOM. I used a different design for each block. I liked some of the quilting designs better than others and I also quilted some way better than others! I thoroughly enjoyed the process and felt I learned a lot.
I feel more comfortable trying new quilting designs now. I did have to rip out some of my quilting so I feel I can try something new and not have to worry. My stitching is better so even ripping out is easier.

Here are close ups of the blocks.








Of course, this quilt is not done yet. I still have to quilt the sashing, set in triangles and the border. Just a few more decisions to make! I'm getting there.

Our quilt guild is having the last meeting of the year tonight. We'll be having a banquet and a speaker. I'm looking forward to a great meal with some wonderful quilt friends! So nice to not have to cook.

    1. I used a Kaffe Fassett fat quarter bundle I had bought. His colors are always fun. I love autumn colors! The table runner I'm working on is in that palette. Love the rich colors!

My Slabs

I almost forgot to post the slab blocks I made for our block exchange.  This block is about 8 inches square. It was supposed to be most...
