I can't believe another three weeks has flown by since our last Hand Quilt Along. Since then, I have gotten a few things done. I finished this Ella Maria Deacon block.
I also finished another Kathy Schmitz One Stitch at a Time blocks.
These week I also had a couple of other finishes by machine. I finished this block for the Pieces From the Past Sew Along by Melva Loves Scraps.
She gave the instructions to put it together, so I went ahead and put my blocks together.
This will be a gift for my grandson Jaeger who graduates this year, and he is 6'+ , so I am going to add another row of 12 inch blocks to make it longer. These blocks were originally published in the Kansas City Star Newspaper in the 1930s. I also have a book of Kansas City Star blocks so I am going to choose 4 more from that.
This week I also got the last row on my Stay at Home Round Robin that was organized by Gail @Quilting Gail. The prompt this week was to add pinwheels. I made a few more log cabins from last week, and added to the pinwheels from this week. This now measures about 64 inches square.
Another one of my slow stitching projects this week has been making hexies. There is a 100 hexie challenge in 100 days on Instagram and I have been doing a handful each night. My papers are for 3/4 inch, so they are pretty small. I had won some charm packs last year and used up one pack.
This week, I will continue working on the hexies, I have a Kathy Schmitz older stitchery to work on, and I am prepping some Ella Maria Deacon blocks to applique.
