Propellar Block



                          

I wish I had more pictures to post. I've been machine quilting my scrap quilt whenever I have the chance. I've also been working on Jen Kingwell's Green Tea and Sweet Beans quilt. This quilt is a combination of applique and piecing. It's worked in 4 sections. This picture shows my progress on the Propellar Block. There will be 16 small blocks that will make one 13 inch finished block. This block is the last block I need to complete Section 1 of this quilt.

I decided to paper piece them. They're very small. Each of these propellar blocks is 3 3/4 inches. The pieces are easier to sew on paper. I'm trying to make a combination of light and dark propellars. The arrangement in the picture is not final! I'll be moving things around.

I'll be taking classes at MQX Thursday and Friday. This is a favorite show for me. I love to take machine quilting classes as well as enjoy the quilt show. There's always some gorgeous quilts to see. And the vendors are always great too! I'll definitely post all about the show over the weekend! See you then!

  1. Gosh this blocks are small and having seen the pattern for Green Tea and Sweet Beans I thought it was a delight but the pieces were too small for my hands! I love the fabrics in these.
