Four Quilts in Progress

Last week I posted that I had decided on four quilts to work on for the time being.

1. Stars Upon Stars
This quilt will take forever! But I know I'll love it! Here's the block I'm currently working on. This is only the second block. Yes, lots to go on this! I'm considering this to be a hand work project. I do make those little pieced diamonds by machine, but I've found it easier to do the rest by hand - it fits together better and it turns out to be the correct size.

2. Happy Birds!
This one has been hiding for a long time. Above are the birds I've previously completed. (I think one may be missing - hope I find it!)

I found this little 'kit' I'd made for the next bird.

Over the weekend I got this far on it. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy wool applique.

3. Cheddar Bowties
I'll keep this one going - it's mindless and if I continue to make 4 blocks per day, it will be finished before too long.

4. Green/Gray Lozenges
I really love the colors in this quilt. It's another mindless quilt once I have a pile of pieces cut...which I do.

These four quilts will keep me busy in December and we'll see how far along I get.

I picked up Appalachian Autumn and my bullseye quilt from the quilter Saturday. Over the weekend I made the binding for both and machine stitched it in place. So that's more handwork - stitching down the binding on both - a happy job.

I dropped two more quilt tops and backing off with her. I've had finished quilt tops hanging in a closet for years. I realize that since my surgery machine quilting all of these will be impossible. I will still quilt some of my own quilts, but I'm ready to cull down my unfinished tops and get them done! 

Stay safe!
