Let's Book It Challenge - April 2014

Progress in the sewing room has been slow this month, well really for the whole year.  But at least it hasn't come to a complete stand still. Back in February I started a project out of the December 2013 American Patchwork and Quilting Magazine, Poinsettias Allure.    


Poinsettias Allure designed by Judy Blok
from the December 2013 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting


I subscribe to a lot of quilting magazines, but rarely make a pattern from them.  So the Let's Book it Challenge hosted by Vrooman's Quilts was an obvious way to encourage me to make a few projects from all those magazines and books which are gathering dust just sitting on the book shelf.  Poinsettias has been my leaders and enders project for the last month.  Since I've not been sitting at the sewing machine much the last couple of months, there's not much progress.



Nineteen of the 76 half square triangle blocks are done.  At this rate, Poinsettias may end up being my only "book it" pattern this year.  Well, probably not, I've got a few other projects picked out that use patterns or books.  I just need to finish a few projects so there is room to start something new.  

Check out all the other challenge projects posted over at Vrooman's Quilts.

  3. Love those beautiful pops of red. One quilt from a book is better than no patterns used from a book or magazine!

  4. The colours are lovely, and as every one has already said. 19 blocks is better than none at all. And it is good to use those mags.
