Quilting along, and woolie blocks

OK, I got all the plaid string blocks completed, and worked on sashings today. I had precut some of the sashing fabrics, so that went faster than it could have. I am going to work on cornerstone blocks and borders next. But...the vacuum calls...the dust need to be removed, so no more sewing today!! I will not be able to post for a few days now...if you are quilting along, please enjoy!!
Here is where I am on the BOW wool blocks from Primitive Gatherings. I do love these blocks...all in various stages of construction. I am really trying to at least get the greens down when the block first comes in...then it is great fun to add the colorful flowers. all hand blanket stitched, a few minutes each evening...wonder how long it will take to get all this done, LOL!!!


Dear Jane is weighing on my mind...I must get back to her quilt, and soon!!!


Have a great week, all!!! I just want you all to know how wonderful it is to have gotten to know you...thank you so much for your friendship!

I love the look of the tan sashing in the plaid quilt. Have you chosen colors for your cornerstones?
Your wool blocks are beautiful!

Nicky said...

Your scrappy plaid quilt looks fabulous - and I'm looking forward to getting started on mine but other stuff has got in the way - not so much a quilt-along as a quilt after everyone else has finished for me :(!

Quilter Kathy said...

Your string quilt is another scrappy gem!
I have never done the wool work before...your blocks are lovely.
PS Don't waste too much time on the housecleaning!

Darlene said...

I love your plaid string quilt! It is gorgeous. I made my Dad a quilt out of vintage plaid shirts for Christmas last year and I love the look!

The neutral tones of your sashings give the quilt a totally different feel to the header quilt! Love how this can really affect the feel of the quilt :)

Lori said...

Another great string quilt!!!

Karen said...

Cleaning! No fun.
Those wool applique blocks are looking good. I so enjoy working with wool.

Lois Arnold said...

You are making it VERY hard not to start yet another project! Both of your in progress quilts look great!

Deanna said...

Looking good! Will there be another border on the plaid quilt?
