Blocks...

Well, it has been way too nice to be inside so I haven't been in the sewing room. Just got done a bunch of cleaning while Aidan is napping this morning. More to do but will do that at the next nap time. We had a good day yesterday visiting a friend of mine from college. He did another car ride and was pretty good in the car and while we were there. Planning to just stay home today and get the house all set for company tomorrow....and if that gets done, maybe some more raking outside.
Here are some of the blocks that I made from the leftover units from my hubby's quilt.

I have his in rows and need to sew them together. I did pick up a backing fabric for that quilt so now I just need to finish the top and then learn how to machine quilt it!
Have a good day everyone.

  1. I really like this pin wheel pattern. Also the color selection is something I would have chosen.

  2. Your blocks look great. I'm sure you'll have a good time learning to machine quilt. Good Luck.

  3. This just rocks! I love the tessalation look to it!

    I learned how to machine quilt by just reading lots of different books, then experimenting on failed blocks..you know, blocks you made but wouldn't put on a quilt? Diane Gaudinsky's books are great as she makes it look easy. Marti Michelle is good, too.

    Thanks for the nice comment on my quilt!
