Since I was not finished with Moonglow at the end of March, and the number Judy pulled for April’s UFO still has a lot of work to be done on it, I decided (at the urging of several very wise readers!) to just continue with Moonglow through this month until it is done. Immediately all the pressure was off and I began to enjoy the process of bringing this quilt around the home stretch again. =^..^= And since ENJOY is my word for 2012, I'm happy!!!
And guess what? Moonglow Block #11 is DONE!
Yes, it’s only a block, not the entire quilt, but it’s progress! And the way these blocks are behaving, it almost feels like finishing up a quilt by the time I’m done with one of them! LOL!!!
Hip Hip Hooray!!! Only one more block to go now, and I can put the center together and then start on those SEVEN
torturous gorgeous borders. Next thing you know, I’ll be posting a finish for this quilt!!!
Here’s the process of how I put together this particular block.
It was only partially paper-pieced. The black and aqua pieces are paper-pieced. I had to cut templates for three of the sections and set them in with Y seams – Yes, the dreaded “Y” word!!! The blue and olive pieces had to be cut individually with templates, as well as the center square.
It was a royal pain, but I finally got them in. They’re not perfect mind you, but they’re in, and they’re staying in!!!
Here is a picture of the entire center with a gaping hole right smack dab in the middle! I can’t wait for that last block to be finished and placed there – it might be time to party, right? As I’ve said before, that last block is a doozie and a half, so keep those ear plugs stuffed in nice and tight folks!!! :*D
My second finish is the Promises and Borders stitchery Block #3.
I just loved working on this block, especially with the addition of my beloved hearts in its border!
Can you see the sweet little bird perched on those spring flowers? *sigh* I’m in love!!!
Here’s Block #4 for this project. I’ve got it all prepared for beginning the stitching, and it will be a welcome project to have with me while I am visiting my family in North Carolina soon! =^..^=
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
