Hodgepodge Patchwork Tuesday on Wednesday

I missed a few blocks and I am trying to catch up!   Last night I completed 3 more quilt blocks.


Missouri Star Block




and the Quartered Star Block



Cool two blocks completed.


Next, I did the paper pieced Schoolhouse Block.


I really wanted the lines of the fabric of the roof to go in the other direction, but I forgot when you do paper piecing it's on the back and opposite.  It's OK! 






Needs to be squared up!  Because I am using all the different fabrics, some of them give a little more than others.

I am a LouAnn's Quilt Retreat this week.  She has a great design wall.  They are not in any particular order.  I just placed them on the wall.


Linda is also doing the My Favorite Block Quilt Along.  We put them up side by side!  Cool!


I hope to get a few more quilt blocks completed tonight, but today, Wednesday, I am working on my Celebration Quilt that I worked on in February when I was here.


I will update you on my progress tomorrow. I hope to finish it by tonight!

I am enjoying my sewing retreat time with friends this week.  It makes me think about the May for Me Celebration   Next week, I will post more about my plans and giveaways for the May for Me Celebration.


Enjoy your day!

I so love home to stick to a basic color scheme. I wish I had that kind of discipline

Thanks for the paper piecing reminder. I've got a house block to piece and would have done it backward! Now I can safely do it. Love your blue and white!

So many FUN blocks! Love it!

Oh, what fun. I'm glad you are having a good time with your friends and getting lots done. I love your blue blocks, it's my favorite color too. I love May For Me, that's where I found you last year! Have fun!
