METRO AREA MONTH 5

The first of the month has come and gone so I better get these blocks posted.  For those of you who are quilting along, we are on month 5 already!




This month we had a nice mix of templates and straight forward piecing.  The blocks didn't take long at all.


Because I'm a bit impatient, I started sewing some sashing between the blocks just to see how it's going to look.  I gotta say, I do like it.

We are in the middle of inventory at the shoppe, so tomorrow will be a busy day. We re-open on Thursday and will be sporting a new paint job : )  I'm excited for the change and the new fabric that will be arriving too !

It looks great. The greys interact with the colours in a really cool way.

These look great. I love seeing the variety of color. Seeing your photo of them all together inspired me to jump back into doing my project by picking the most inspiring color to do next. I think that will be a good way to stay excited.

I’m not allowed to start yet another quilt, but it’s hard to resist!

I received the fabrics yesterday and LOVE them! I’m happy to read “didn’t take long at all” since I’m working on month three and struggling… but also learning a lot! I’m so excited about how it looks on my wall so far though! And the sashing?! SWOON.

For blocks that look so simple (or appear so!), slowly assemble into the beauty that becomes a great quilt, I love this process.
