Down To The Wire

I have one block left to sew. It's a very special block, so I'll finish it today and show you tomorrow. Here are the other new blocks.

These almost finished off my scrap box. I had just enough to do some with a colour theme. Since this is a belated wedding gift, I had to include the colours they had *actually* asked for: Purple is the groom's favorite colour. Not sure about the bride's favorite, but I'm fairly certain it is red or green. Bases covered!

Lastly, two more Jacob's Ladder blocks. Whomever came up with the idea to use precut patches as leaders and enders was a friggin genius. I would never have the patience to create this quilt if I wasn't forced to work at it slowly and methodically while powering through alternate projects. Even the cutting is done whenever I feel like it or as I have need for new pieces in the cigar box.

Tomorrow you can expect the very last block. You can also expect subsequent posts to have pictures of sashing....layout...finished top. I think I'm on track. Nothing like a deadline to motivate!!


  1. Yes you have a deadline. Keep sewing. I will be waiting for your call. he he, I am teasing you.

    1. I think my kids are getting sick of hearing, "Not now - Mama's working!" Sashing, coming up!

  2. Hi, Michelle, just popped in from the linky at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.. LOVE your rainbow-y blocks. So colorful and fun! xo
