Piecing and Packing and Purging!

 

Rock the Block Sew Along
by Sew Kind of Wonderful.
This one I will use to practice FMQ on. 
Jenny of SKOW plans to show us how she will quilt it.
Love it when I can copy a design
 and not have to come up with it on my own.
When finished, it will adorn my office/sewing room...
as if I ever need a quilt in Arizona to warm my lap.

Greenhouse
by Elizabeth Hartmann,
requested by my DIL.
I did an E2E pattern on this one and regret it.
I really should have custom quilted it,
but wanted to get it done. 
I may make another version of it for my nephew's wedding
and then I can do custom.
His future wife loves succulents.

And it will come to no surprise that I started piecing another project...
A Figurative Quilt
by Natalia Bonner.
I am using Tilda fabrics for the first time 
and absolutely love the English Garden florals.
There is another border with tons of hexies yet to be assembled.
This sampler quilt will be used for my class I signed up for with Natalia.
I am sure one of my granddaughters will love to receive it when I am done.
Or maybe I keep it for myself.

This last week I sorted, folded and purged my fabric stash.
Much of my reproduction fabrics went to my friend, Deb;
Lori of Humble Quilts,
Janet, the Roque Quilter,
and to a quilt ministry in NY suggested by Janet.
It felt good to prioritize my project and fabric collections.
Even with all I purged,
I have more than I will ever be able to use.
Besides,
I am always seduced by all the pretty new fabrics I see.

All that reorganization makes it easy to pack for Colorado!
Oh, but what WIPS will I take?????

  1. Won't that be fun to have Jenny show you how to quilt that SAL quilt!
    Love Elizabeth Hartman patterns.Sometimes it is hard to know if you will be happy with an E2E design until you have quilted it--and then it's too late. :o
    Such pretty florals. I follow several bloggers in Australia and New Zealand and there is a lot of Tilda fabrics being used. I especially like your basket and Dresden blocks, and I really like that border treatment.
    My stash is ready to welcome your fabrics with love. :) Thank you, Cheryl!

  2. Love the colors of Your Rock the Block quilt. You've been busy getting organized before leaving for summer Rocky Mountain high. It feels good to pass fabric on to those who appreciate it and enjoy putting it good use. I just passed some on as well.
