A Work in Progress

IMG_2012I have made all fifty 6″ blocks in the Kimberly Einmo book, Pre Cut Bonanza.  The book has 200 pieced blocks from cut strips and shapes.  I intend to make all the blocks eventually. The quilt that was made with the 10″ blocks still hasn’t been quilted.  It is on the “to do” list.  There are still 8″, 12″, 14″, 16″ and big blocks to make.  That is for the future.  I’ll be checking magazines and the Internet for settings for those blocks.

The solid color fabric drawer was stuffed to overflowing so the 6″ blocks were made with just solid fabric.  I had hoped to use it up.  At least I can shut the drawer now.  I don’t usually buy solid fabric and had used most of what I had in one of the Miss Rosie quilts.  Some of my friends are no longer quilting and some of their fabric ended up in my fabric drawers.  I should never have to buy fabric again as long as I make scrap quilts. Most of it was solid color fabric.

The quilt will be set on the diagonal. Each block has a different color border.  Then there will be black sashing with different colored corner squares.  The sashings are  cut 1 1/2″ wide.  I was able to cut the corner squares out of the leftover fabric.  Everything that was cut will be used. The setting triangles will be black and it will have a black binding.

IMG_2011This is the first and second rows of the quilt.  I’ll add the black setting triangles to the rows before I sew the rows together. I might even change my mind and use another color.  I could even use half blocks in that spot.  The quilt will speak to me when I get to that point.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
