Blocks Almost Done

I've got just 8 Bird of Paradise blocks to finish on Alice's View, which I should be able to knock out during the next few days. Then I can start putting blocks together to determine the finished size of the center--a panel that will need borders to bring it to the right size.

My hope is to finish the quilt this weekend and deliver next week.

Bird of Paradise Block Photo

Here's a photo of one of the Bird of Paradise blocks. There are a few like this one, and there will be several other variations using different fabrics. I can't wait to see the rest.

Bird of Paradise Blocks

After some time off for vacation, I'm back to quilting again. I'm working on Bird of Paradise blocks for Alice's View. These blocks have pops of color to make them stand out from the otherwise purposely dull background. It will be a couple of days before I finish a set of blocks and get pictures up.

Shoo Fly Blocks Done

I finished the Shoo Fly blocks for Alice's View tonight. Next are the Bird of Paradise blocks. However, it may be a few days before I do more sewing. My sister Cass, who lives in another state, is coming this week for a visit and a short vacation together. I'll get back to the quilt when I can.
