Designing Monday

I finally got busy and made some progress around here.  I finished piecing the Cheddar and Blue quilt that I started about a month ago.  I really like how it turned out and am glad I kept it to a 5x5 size.  I think it is about 65 in. square.

The Threads of Memory Quilt from Barbara Brackman has been calling me to get another block done, so I finished the block for May.  It had paper piecing and set in seams.  I usually like to paper piece, but it almost got the best of me.  It didn't help that I cut my fabric backwards and ended up making the center of the block backwards.  The set in seams were a breeze in comparison.

I visited a couple of local quilt shops this week to pick up patterns for the Row by Row Experience.  I think that's what it is called.  The patterns are designed by the quilt shops and not at all what I expected.  I'll have to decide if I have time to fit this in.  Anybody else participating in your area??

Hop on over to Judy's to see some really beautiful designs.


  1. That combo of quilt blocks makes a nice design.
    I guess it is a good thing I gace up on the TOM when I did. The paper piecing would have been okay, but I do not get along with set-in seams!. Your block looks good to me. : )

  2. I love your Cheddar and Blue quilt blocks. Isn't it amazing what happens just by combining two blocks!!
