Some times it is like starting a brand new project when we open boxes we have forgotten about.

Oh, WOW!!!  Sorry I haven't been visible for a while.  I'm trying to stay focused on my current projects and just know when I stop by here, I'll want to start something else, LOL.

After finishing up my brother's birthday quilt, I went down to my Studio and picked up a pizza box with the label torn.  Now what could be in there?  All the blocks for another quilt, that's what.  So Hearts & Tulips is what I've been working on.  Tomorrow we have a Sew Day at my guild, so I'll take along the last of the units needed for the centre portion of the border, and will get those out of the way.  Then it'll be starting the corner blocks, but not yet.  I'm hoping to get this quilt to the top stage by the end of summer, so no handquilting for me this summer, sadly.  I'm pretty sure I'll be appliqueing my borders for a few weeks anyway.

Handstitcher, you are on a roll!  I love that block.  It must be in my Baltimore blocks box 'cause I know it didn't go into my last BQ.

QD, absolutely awesome ribbons.  Your fabric choices are perfect.

Thanks, Cat Lady and QuiltDragon! QD, I'll let you know how big the quilt will be when I find my paper with the dimensions. But I think it was about 90" square.

Thank you handstitcher & cat lady. There are many memories in the quilt, but it's taken so long to finish it, I'll be really glad when it's done...then we have the whole quilting part....

handstitcher - sounds like it's going to be really nice. What size is the finished quilt going to be?

Beautiful QuiltDragon, this quilt will hold a lot of memories for you.

Love your block handstitcher, those are such tiny bird eggs.

So pretty, QuiltDragon! Love the springtime colors. It's going to be gorgeous!

My block is currently 16" but I'll cut it down to 14 or 14.5". Somewhere I have the dimension all laid out...

Here are a few of my recent block finishes. They'll go on the outside to square it up - the complicated bow is on the right & left centers; the ones where the end of the ribbon is visible go on top & bottom; the loops are various shapes & will fill in. I'm almost done with the ones I'm working on more - just 3 to go. Yay!

handstitcher, it's beautiful. How large is the block.

Comment by handstitcher/IL on May 6, 2018 at 10:51am

QuiltDragon, you should post a photo of the finished blocks. I'd love to see them!

Here's photo of my last border block. Didn't have a pattern, so I enlarged a photo of the block from a book on historic BAQs and made my own. This summer I'll prep the center medallion.
