Halfway Done!




I have completed 10 blocks for the Tone It Down Quilt Along sponsored by American Patchwork and Quilting. Of course, I started late and my pace is a bit slow but I'm getting there! The blocks are 15.5 inches square. There will be a total of 20 blocks that will be separated with sashing and very small (2.5 inch square) 9-patch blocks. These blocks include lots of cutting and lots of sewing but I love them!


These are my latest blocks. I already have the colored fabrics picked for the next 2 blocks. I just have to start cutting that fabric. Maybe tomorrow??

  3. I love the look of this...certainly seems to involve a lot of little bits and pieces. Not sure I have the patience. This will look great.

  4. I did not realize there were 20 blocks all together. That's a lot of piecing! Good thing you are spreading it out over time.

    1. This is going to be a pretty big quilt! I think spreading it out is the best way. It gets too tedious to do it all at once.
