I have been very slack when it comes to blogging lately. But I wanted to let you know that I've been doing a lot of sewing. This is Block #5 of the Moda Block Heads block of the week. It looks large in the photo, but is only 6 1/2" square. I'm out of the background fabric now, but my LQS is supposed to get it in this week. That's why I don't have Block #6 finished yet. I need the light colored background fabric as shown in each corner block and the middle. There are 58 pieces in this block!!!
These are 2 table runners I'm making out of a couple charm packs and they are ready to baste. Each HST block measures 4 1/2", so it will only be 12" wide and 48" long.
I "had" to make some placemats with Joanne Kerton's free placemat pattern found here. I found this Mary Engelbreit fabric in my stash and thought they would be cute. I love how they turned out! They still need more quilting on them, but I haven't decided yet how I will do it. Thanks, Joanne! If you want to get the pattern, click on the link and then scroll down to where it says a "few free patterns" and click on that, then scroll down again until you see this placemat pattern.
Happy Spring and Happy Quilting!
