A Month of Grandmothers

With lots of travel and visiting family, I got way behind on the Grandmother’s Choice Block of the Week blocks.  But over the last few days I’ve snuck up to the sewing room for a bit of stitching.  Here is a month of Grandmother’s Choice blocks:

Week 45 – Aunt Mary’s Favorite. 

45-Aunt-Mary's-FavoriteAunt Mary’s Favorite is one of my favorites – a fun and easy block made more dynamic with cool chevrons.

Week 46 – Barrister’s Block

46-Barrister's-BlockI loved making the mirror image in this block with the same fabric in different colorways.

47 – Heroine’s Crown

47-Heroine's-CrownUgh!  My hand applique stinks on this one.  It may be a ‘do-over’.

48 – Fair Play

48-Fair-PlayI hand pieced the curves on this.  Reminds me of all the Inklingo stitching I still have to go on the Case of the Secret Garden quilt.  Inklingo would have made this a LOT easier!

I’ve also completed the Civil War Dixie Diaries block of the month for July.  Dixie Diary Month 7 – Living off Cornbread:

DD7---Living-Off-CornbreadSo now my BOW’s and BOM’s are all caught up.  What should I work on next?

  • Binding, sleeves and labels for quilt show quilts.
  • Case of the Secret Garden – only 15 more hand stitching block before I can put this puppy together.
  • Quilt the Kimono Quilt wall hanging.
  • Fabric basket – looks floppy, I might start over.
  • Exchange blocks for my bee – one done, seven to go – eeek!
  • Just Takes 2 – purple and white quilt.
  • Dr. Seuss quilt for Mikey – not even started, need to research pattern ideas.
  • And so on and so on and so on…..

Have a great week y’all!
