Quilt Blocks

I pieced six quilt blocks this past week.


These are the last of the blocks for a quilt that started as a quilt along with a couple of friends (we all seemed to have lost interested over the years). It was started about 5 years ago.


There are pieced and appliquéd blocks in this quilt (7.5" blocks).


The quilt is Pieces of Time by Lori Smith . Now to work on the appliqué border.


I also finished a skein of yarn from a fibre bundle that I recently won. It is a beautiful Polwarth and Silk blend.


I divided the bundle into light and dark to spin two different skeins, to then knit together in a project (I still haven't decided on what yet).


My Tealeaf Sweater is coming along nicely. This week I finished the neck band and started the sleeves - they look really short but because of the drop shoulder they are already past my elbows.

All the best!♥︎

When your friends see the quilt you've finished, they're going to get excited about this project again and finish their quilts. Your blocks are lovely and this quilt is going to be beautiful! Happy Stitching!

Very pretty - I decided to not make this one after I purchased the pattern - am sending it to a friend. Interesting that you are working on it now.
