End of the month is Closing in

Posted by Strlady at 12:03 PM
Sorry for the lack of updates but I've been a busy beaver. I think I just might make this month's goals (still have a few days to go!).

First off, an update on my Two Pieced Puzzle.

I have half of the blocks finished!

After our last update, I pieced the hourglass centers over the week and then when the weekend hit, I got all the cornerstone blocks made.

Here are all 28 of them (three are on the back of the wall because they didn't fit in front). Don't they look WONDERFUL! It also shows how big this puppy will be. I have never made one this big. I am so excited!

I had to stop myself from making the others because I had another project to work on this month.

A Garden Inspired Schnibble...

Making this one using Kansas Troubles' Garden Inspiration line.
I worked on this one over this weekend and by monday I had the center completed.

It's darker than I thought but I think after I quilt it I can pop out the stars that I selected to make. (Notice there are four stars forming in the center).
With just a few more days in the month I am working on the border (almost completed) and wrapping up the binding on The Bounty quilt.

Will post soon with the final tally of projects for April.

Ah, your two pieced puzzle is perfect, just my kind of quilt, pattern and fabric, love them both, great job.

I love that Kansas Troubles fabric line, but don't see much of it online, I'm not sure why. It looks great as this month's Schnibble!
