12 Blocks Done!!


 Here are the 12 blocks that I've finished for the Tone It Down Quilt Along. This started back in January so I guess I'm a little behind! I'm working on it at my own pace. I tend to work on a few projects at once so it will take a little while longer. I don't mind that it's taking awhile. I am cutting out each block's pieces individually. Each block is made up of 97 pieces. (I'm glad I didn't count them until after I'd started!)  Even the cutting takes a while! Here's one block cut out.


You can see why each block takes awhile. I usually work on two blocks at a time. I think it saves time but I have to be careful to not mix up pieces. I have mixed them up a few times. I figured it out pretty quickly so it was easy to fix.


These are the 2 newest blocks I just completed. As work intensive as these blocks are, I still love making them. They always seem to finish up very nicely. Besides, I only have 8 more blocks to go! I can't quit now.  I've already started picking out the fabrics for the next 2 blocks!

  2. This is really shaping up nicely! And you are using all fabrics from your stash, right? It's practically free!

  4. Those blocks are really impressive. I like simple projects myself, so I love to see what others do.
