more summer sewing


I can't believe how fast summer goes by. I have snatched a few minutes to sew most days.  These little 6 inch blocks are the perfect little things to work on when I can find some time to sew.
 
The block in the upper left is called Crowfoot. It is 1/4 the size of the blocks in my Crowfoot quilt.  It was very fun to revisit this block on the smaller scale. 

My friend and I worked on our circle game quilts again one evening last week.  We laid out 4 mostly finished blocks of each quilt to compare.  They are so very different!  The lighting isn't great and her blocks look a bit washed out.
We continue to enjoy the challenge of this pattern - The Circle Game by Jen Kingwell.  Some of the blocks ahead look very tricky!  It's been an excellent learning project as well as fun and motivating to be making it with a friend.

Happy Quilting!!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blocks! Your 6-inch blocks are so nicely scrappy and interesting (Love the one with the "H's"). Your circle blocks are going to make such a unique and beautiful quilt! So fun that you are doing it with someone...

It's always difficult to make sustained progress on anything in the summer because of all of the interruptions and unplanned opportunities for fun but it looks like you at least are moving in the right direction on a few projects. I love the side-by-side shot of the two circle block sets ~ how different they look! And those scrappy blocks are wonderful, so fresh looking.

Your. 6" blocks just shout summer with those brighter clearer colors. Motivation from a friend is a great tool especially with the challenges with each of those circle blocks. Whew!
