Almost Another Finish

    Saw this comic on Facebook recently.  Yesterday morning was perfect.

     I took advantage of the rainy morning yesterday and sewed.  I have made good progress on the dogwood blooms.  In the directions Annette recommends stitching the curves after sewing the blocks all together.  I do not want to manipulate a large quilt top to stitch the curves so I have been stitching the bloom curves for each block. They now look more like blooms. 

     When I needed a break from dogwood blooms, I decided to stitch a small sample quilt for a JoAnn Fabrics beginner class.  This version of the “Hole in the Barn Door” block is taught in Quilting 101.  I made scrappy blocks and quilted simply with the walking foot – mostly in the ditch.  I just need to add binding and the sample will be ready to display for Open House on Saturday. 

Hope you have enjoyed some rainy weather.

  1. Your dogwood blocks are beautiful! I love the tiny hint of accent color at the tips from turning back the curve. So much tight work in one blocks......good idea to do them as you go.
