More Orphan Blocks

This was as far as I got today.  I ran out of gas (energy) around 2pm and have been on the couch since.  Hubs and I were like two bumps on a log lol.  Enjoy 🐸

Today I started sewing the massive bag of orphan blocks.  I have completed one top.

Four more star blocks were sewn one day after work.  🐸

Attacking the strings

My strings are out of control so it was time to get them sewn.  I started with the green ones on Sunday.  I now have 23 eight inch blocks.

Next up will be the blue strings.  🐸

Applique and Star Blocks

I finished the first Worcester block after a few weeks of stitching.  I love how it came out.  Also I have more star blocks.  Still have lots of purple batik scraps to use so I'll keep making them.  🐸

Weekend Update

I assembled this top the other day.  I had most of the parts ready.  I sliced and diced the string blocks and then made four patch blocks.  Put borders on and it was ready for quilting.  I did the quilting this morning, a fun feather meander.

On another note I have been appliquing a new project.  The Worcester Quilt.  The blocks are big at 16 inches and there are lots of different stitching.  So far I am enjoying it!  I will be joining Kathy for slow stitching Sunday Here.

In the last picture Mr Tale is trying to punch Tinker Belle.  I think he has the advantage.

A Bag of Purple Scraps

Yes that's how this project go started.  I wanted to highlight the many different purple batik fabrics.  Well one thing led to another and here we are.  These are about 6.5 inches.  I don't know how big this top will end up but these are very relaxing and the combinations are endless.  🐸

Spring has arrived here in the south.  Our plum tree all bloomed out and lovely daffodils.
