6 blocks down, many more to go...

The sewing machine called to me after supper tonight. I tried to resist (well, not really, but it sounds good!) but gave in and put together 6 blocks for my Blue Ridge Beauty quilt after making some HST units. There are lots of different fabrics in this quilt including batiks, homespuns, heart fabric that was leftover from my daughter's friendship star quilt, inukshuk fabric made for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, some fabric purchased recently and some that has been in my stash for a long time. It is very scrappy!

My gift quilts should be back from the quilter's house next week so I will have to put this project aside to do the bindings. I still have some smaller gifts to make too. Christmas will be here before you know it!


  1. Oh, it has a great look to it! I'm dreaming of quilting....

  2. I am soooo jealous. I have both of Bonnies books and put them somewhere safe - so safe I can't find them. Blue ridge beauty is on my to do list.
    Your blocks look wonderful.

  3. Looking good

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  4. I love how the pattern emerges! It's adorable. Can't wait for more progress pics.
