I'm still in the red, but at least I have a finish!
I had fun with these blocks, but decided that I wanted to get back to other projects, so I stopped at 3, and made a runner.

I got back to work on one project.   I had made both the blocks and the alternate blocks but had to make the pieced setting triangles.  When I checked my instructions, I found that all the edges would be on the bias, so I used EQ8 to draw the block, then I divided it in half, and printed out templates for the unusual shapes, then I divided it into 4 pieces, so I could get templates for the corner triangles as well.  I spent yesterday piecing the side and corner triangles, then used the living-room carpet to lay the blocks out, then pick them up in rows for sewing.  This morning I managed to sew the rows in one direction, and then pin them in the opposite way, but it began raining, and since my sewing room is a sunroom under the carport, the rain hitting the aluminum roof was just too loud, so I came inside and reconciled my back accounts - a job I always put off!
I also received the final instructions for the borders for my guild's scrappy BOM quilt, so when I get the first one done, I'll begin stitching the borders (all pieced!) 
I'm linking up with quiltpaintcreate today to share my stash report.  


  1. I like it. The quilting compliments the blocks and the rainbow binding was the perfect finish.

  2. What a lovely finish! Such talent to achieve such beautiful quilting! I agree with quiltpaintcreate - that binding is a perfect color choice!

  3. Really lovely, Susan -- both the design and the quilting!

  4. What a stunning table topper. Great job all around.

  5. This is a beautiful piece but I am most impressed by how organized you are. I couldn't begin to say how much fabric I've used.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
