Sunday Sewing Update

Here is the rest of the update for the weekend.

After church, I attended a birthday party for which I had made a gift yesterday. I made my first ever bowl cozy. No one at the party had ever heard of them before, so they were quite interested. Here’s a picture:


At the party we did some pallet stencil painting. Note that the real color of my background is more of an aqua or light teal than a green.


Once I got home it was time for some piecing. Look at the lovely warning my machine gave me.


I finished the last four blocks for my nephew’s wedding quilt. I’m pretty sure my niece-to-be is more excited than he is. I’m sorry that we won’t make it out to Arizona for the wedding though.IMG_3384

Here is a picture of all nine blocks:IMG_3385

The next step is to make all of the blocks 30″ (unfinished) by adding white around the blocks, like this:


One down, eight to go. I’m hoping to get the top together and the backing pressed in time to get this to the quilt shop by Tuesday pick up by the longarmer.

And now you’re caught up on all my weekend quilting!

Quilt on!

    That stencil painting is pretty cool Gretchen! And yay for all the blocks, I can’t wait to see the whole top!

    Love the light and airiness of your blocks. Hope it changes so you can make the wedding.
