More progress



Another sandwiched quilt to work on during the weekend !
DH is going away this weekend, leaving tomorrow,
and you can see what I have planned - quilting as much as I can on this quilt and on Judy's challenge.
The blocks on this quilt are 10" finished and done with the TriRecs tool.
I have made 12 blocks and joined the quilt since yesterday morning.
This is an Ufo and it is good to have it done.
I have also put away the yellow and red fabrics and decluttered my sewing table :-)

When I need a break from big arm movements I will do the current round on the crazy quilt RR and play more with Tonya's letters.

I am doing the Happy Dance for you since I know you were struggling with getting it to this point! Good for you--cute quilt.

I was trying to figure out where I had seen this quilt block--someone's blog or where? Of course! My family's guestroom---Jan has a little one done in 30's repros on the wall. Someone had made it for her or she had gotten it as a door prize or something---it was of a grouping of 4 small wallhangings. I have seen the pattern on the EZ Wrights website and probably have it printed off--the makers of that Tri-Recs you spoke of.

How on earth do you make time to sew all you have done lately. I am so envious. I want to sew tooooooo :( This weekend I will!!!!! I hope so. Idar (my boyfriend) has to buy a lot of newspapers to read in while I am sewing. The new quilt is georgius.
I have a trirec to but have never used it. Hmmmmm....I have a lot of things for my quilting I never have used.

This is one cute quilt! It looks like a scrap buster! Well done. Enjoy your quiet time alone this weekend--quilting!

This looks great - I've already printed out the blocks you had posted earlier. I have the Tri Recs tools but can't even remember what I intended to make with them.

What a great looking quilt. I am very, very fond of yellow and red so it really speaks to me.

Sandra said...

What a great way to use some strips! I really like this one and as I have the ruler myself, will make one of these quilts I think :-)

I like the look of this quilt. It has that string quilt look without using millions of fabrics.
Enjoy your sewing weekend.

I love that red and yellow combinations & NEVER would have thought to put them together.

Another lovely quilt. You are a wonder.

You are really a prolific quilter nowadays. I wish I could say the same about me, since I have lots of time....

Lovely quilt!

Hanne, it is such an inspiration the way you turn scraps into wonderful quilts. Your sunshine quilt inspired me to start with some Diamond in Square blocks I had lying on the bottom of a drawer. Together with other orphane blocks and different scraps I made the Jungle quilt. I finished it today and will blog about the result soon. Of course it is totally different from what you make, but all the same; Thanks alot for being my inpriation!
