Let's Book It Challenge - August Update

Hard to believe that it's almost the end of August.  It's been an eventful month in our household.  I'm hoping that September is a bit calmer.  The end of the month  means it's time to report on the status of my 2014 Let's Book it Challenge project. 

This challenge is all about utilizing those gorgeous quilting books, magazines and patterns laying around the quilting studio as they are intended, to make something.  I've been working on Poinsettias pretty much all year.  It's from the December 2013 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  

This has been my leaders and enders project for the last few months.  I'm finally starting to see some significant progress.

The quilt is made from 6 smaller blocks, today there are stacks of 5 of those blocks.  Enough pieces have been made to actually layout one of the blocks on the design wall.

The America Patchwork version uses green, which I've replaced with the black prints.  So far, I'm happy with how it's working out.  There are still a lot of the smaller block parts to make, but I'm making progress.

  1. Now that I see it all laid out - that's a lot of units for one block! Way to stay with it, it is a stunning quilt.

  2. Wow! That's a lot of pieces to sew together. Way to go on getting one finished ( and with all the points matching up too!)

  3. Lots of progress and reward now of seeing the fabrics work so well together. Excellent!

  4. Very cool block. It will make such a pretty quilt.
