More chocolate


With these blocks I've finished the pieced blocks in the center star.  Tonight I'm hoping to start the Argyle blocks for the outside.  My goal is to finish this to top status by the end of the month.  it will require a lot of focus on my part and I'm already getting distracted!



And here is my checkoff photo.  The argyles are the green, brown and pink ones on the points.

Ready for Saturday

This year's Saturday Sampler is using all batiks.  The blocks aren't difficult but there are fifteen different fabrics so you really have to pay attention to what goes where.  I'm already out of one of them for some reason.

A little chocolate

So I decided to clear some blocks  off my table that I had cut out a couple of years ago.  I had "gotten stuck" by the Arrowhead block below and was too intimidated to try the paper-piecing in the star block.  These blocks are for the Chocolatier quilt.






And here is my checkoff photo of the quilt.  I'm hoping to get some more of these finished so I can clear it out totally!

Lady Liberty Ornament

I always like to stitch on a patriotic project on Independence Day.  This year I made the Lady Liberty ornament from Buttermilk Basin.  She's a cutie and I have her hanging on the back of my Sweet Stitches Liberty mini.

Five Saturdays



So here are my blocks for the 2020 Saturday Sampler.  We met as usual for January, February and March  and then we got dropped into this weird trans-dimensional pandemic.                                           

 
I am enjoying these blocks.  They are more difficult to do because of the number of fabrics required.  Also, the original fabrics for the BOM are not available so we are using substitutions so it's hard to track which fabric goes where sometimes.  I haven't seen the final quilt yet because who knows when our Saturday group at the LQS will meet again?

Beans!

Jimmy Beans Knit Club for Jan-Mar.  It was the Moxie cowl and I was a little intimidated because of all of the different knit patterns.  I love it!
