Happy Quiltie Things

Last week’s goals, I finished the Fence Rail Star quilt, which was also my August One Monthly Goal.

Wonky Star label.

And I finished this little cutie embroidery quilt block design by Jacquelynne Steven called Happy Little Things.

I’m using Friedlander fabric by Carolyn Friedlander for the pieced blocks. I used scraps of floss, various brands, for the embroidery.

I started working on a 2018 Row by Row quilt. Have you heard of the Row by Row Experience? Have you collected any of the free patterns? You have to visit participating quilt shops between June 21st and September 3rd to pick up a copy of their free Row by Row pattern. This year’s theme is Taste the Experience.

Back to what I’m doing. I hopped around on the web to see what shops are doing out of my area. I found that back in 2018 Susan Rooney designed 8 individual patterns for 8 New York quilt shops for the Sew Musical theme. The finished quilt is Birdsong Sing-A-Long. I bought the pattern and 2 kits.

I finished “Hummin’ a Tune or Two” Quilt-As-You-Go method, and machine appliquéd the Hummers and flower.

I also have the background ready for “Rockin’ Robin” and I’m working on tracing and cutting out Mr. Robin and his birdbath. The 2 blocks will be finished at 18″ square. 4 more blocks will also be 18″ square and 2 will be 12″ x 27″ to make a 48″ x 54″ quilt.

That’s it for this week. How did your week go?

    Always glad to see a label!
    I did Row By Row in 2016…’back then’ you could get some of the patterns by ordering on-line after a certain date. This was important to me as I wanted to select which kits to use outside of the stores I’d been to…Anyway, that isn’t an option these days – but only sewn up one block so far!!!!
    Actually, it’s those license plates I love best!
    Have fun with it.

    So far I’ve held off doing any of the Row by Row’s but when i see what others are doing I’m more and more tempted. I’m just afraid of another UFO joining the pile!

    Hello! I love that label and the whole idea of the wonky star as a label. Very cute and cool! Cute block for the Row By Row. I participated in the RBR one year – it must have been 2017. Unfortunately, I never did anything with the free patterns I carefully collected. Yay to checking off the list items for the week, and thanks for linking up. ~smile~ Roseanne
