"Seeing Stars!" Turning Twenty download day!!

 Remember that the first and third Mondays are Turning Twenty days!!  Tricia and the Turning Twenty girls are offering this free quiltalong...Remember to go and download your block....and here are my blocks!  Scrappy red,white and blues.  
 I put some small circles in the middle of the orange peel blocks, for my table runner.  I am in the process of appliqueing them down.  Liking it much better!!
And in an effort to use my stash all up, I am making String X blocks.  This is a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville.  I love making these blocks!!  I use muslin foundations, but I think most people use phone books,  Either way...anything goes in these blocks!  Any scrap that fits is USED!!







Have a great day, everyone!!  I have a chicken roasting in the oven, and zucchini bread baking too...so supper will be yummy!!

Fun RWB blocks! You know I love those.
Those circles are a really nice touch on your orange peel blocks.
Wish I could make it over for supper. : )

Love your RWB block~ I had forgotten today was the day until I opened my email. I love happy email! LOL I like the string blocks too. Dinner sounds wonderful!

I signed up for the quilt along! I haven't started my blocks though because I'm just now getting back in to the swing of things after moving. Should be fun!

I haven't started my blocks, but I love yours!

My X string pile is not as large as yours, but it's growing.

Thank you Julie for reminding me about the Turning Twenty blocks. So many things going on Mondays for me that I have already forgotten I have to check my email but I never forget to check bloggers lol.
Love how yours have turned out. Also I love your little dots on the orange peels. What a difference it makes. Cute!

Dear Julie,

I love the little applique circles you added to your orange peel. That quilt is on my to do list, and I hope I can remember to add the circles, too, as I really liked how they transformed a "simple" orange peel into something quite special.

Susan said...

Great idea putting the circles on the Orange Peel.....

I printed my instructions for the Turning Twenty block but still haven't finished the last one.......

Glad to know one of us is up to date......

Love the circles on your orange peel blocks. I need to start some of those. I have missed the Turning Twenty blocks. Where do I find that?

Kyle said...

You have some fun things you're working on and some delicious things in the oven. Looks like a perfect day!

" in an effort to use my stash all up"...ppppfffffttttt...I would have to live to be about 250 years old for that to happen. :(

Love your version of the blocks. I finally caught up yesterday with both blocks. THanks for posting the string blocks. You've given me an idea for a mini quilt I need to make

I joined the BOM, I signed up for the precut program. I love the addition of the circles on your pumpkin seed blocks. I love a string quilt!

Just wondering where we can link up to the July binding blitz? Is there a certain post to which we should add our links? I have bindings done this month so would love to enter.

Kim said...

What method did you use to make your orange peel "pedals"
needle turn?
You've been very busy as usual, I have got to get myself organized!

Happy Sewing

I was thinking of orange peels the other day and looked online to see what others had done with colors and settings. And then comes your orange peels with the appliqued circles. Perfect!
