Designer Mystery – Block 6

So one of my goals this month was to complete the Block 6 of the designer mystery for 2021. This was a very easy block, even though there were a lot of pieces.

This block of the month is turning out to be beautiful. I love Fig Tree fabrics and this line, Strawberries and Rhubarb is absolutely beautiful. I especially like the subtle white on white background.

Falling Leaves

Since I went through my quilt tops and took photos of them I had wanted to complete more of my quilts. Part of the reasons why is because I have room to hang them on the walls in my house. Part of the reason is I feel so guilty having so many tops not quilted.

This quilt is among one of my oldest quilt tops. Around 18 (give or take a few years) years ago I was part of an old Delphi Forum, BEFORE Facebook! We had a block exchange of Maple leaves. I received quite a few blocks and they sat for around 9 years. I put it into a top thinking I would add some interesting borders. The problem is. I am not fond of browns and oranges – so I rarely buy those fabrics.

i now have a wonderful place in my dining room for smaller wall hangings that this quilt fit perfectly in. .

I need an intervention

i recently was looking for a specific quilt top that I had in my stash to quilt for a specific area in my house for fall. While I was at it, I decided to snap quick photos of the tops so I would remember them. I keep them in a spare bedroom closet since my sewing room closet is out of space.

I had 34 quilt tops in that closet!!!

Yes I put them on hangers to hang them in the closet. Some have the backing with them, some do not. My goal this next year is to finish a lot of these quilts.
