Monthly Catch-Up

Month 7 and another block from the Canton Village Blog BOM. Now that I've done a block without green I'll have to do one without red or maybe just a hint of red and lots of green.

This is my Sundial quilt with the blocks from Month 2 completed. I like how it's coming along. It's just all pieces, I haven't sewn any of the blocks together yet. I just pin them up as I make them and I'm rapidly running out of space. 

The next block is just that. I'm making a little quilt with it and it just needs some quilting and the binding done.

 My friend and I started this one last Sunday, it's Frost on the Ferns by the Blackbird girls, Alma and Barb. My one is all blue and brown and hers is all pink.The colours give it a totally different look. I haven't sewn a stitch on it yet and as you can see the freezer paper is hiding most of it. I've been spending the evenings sewing the binding on my Mary Brown quilt but it's not ready for a reveal, yet.

You have been very busy, Dorothy! I made my blogger's BOM block today too! Its great to see your Sundial Quilt blocks together.
Look forward to seeing what is under that freezer paper.
Can't wait to see Mary Brown!

I love the top blocks, but I adore the Sundial! The soft colors you use and the beautiful pattern! The next one is also nice, really good for a cushion but the last one is intriging! have lots of fun with the stitches, greetings

I like the colors you are using for the Sundial quilt. The center block especially.
You are working on a quilt block from the same book that I am working on. I am doing the "Love Letters" version. But I also have "Frost on the Ferns" prepped for applique in the same colors as in the book. I can't see a lot of your fabrics on the block but so far, the choices look very good.

Your work is always beautiful, lots of contrast between all the quilts you are working on, I especially like the blue and brown fabrics you are using on Frost on the Ferns.

Your blocks are beautiful, tempted to do a sampler one too.
I am trying to decide what to make for my bed, something simple, pieced and able to take cat claws, lol.

Love the look of all your projects - great that you accomplish so many beauties! The blackbird quilt looks intriguing - I'll watch your progress on the one, for sure!

So much beautiful work. I am looking forward to the big reveal of the Mary Brown quilt. The quilting on it looks lovely.
