Weekend Stitching: A Few Finished Blocks

As usual the weekend seem to fly by.  I'm definitely not ready for Monday morning, but I'm reminding myself that it's a short week. My Guy and I are taking a few days off before the 4th of July holiday to get a few things done around the house and just generally goof off.  There will definitely be some sewing time in there too. 

I did get in some significant time in the sewing room this weekend.  All the pieced borders for Christmas Angels are assembled and attached to the quilt. 


What looks black in the photo is actually dark green.  This quilt has 3 more borders to be added, but those will not be pieced.  I just need to decide if the final border is going to be red or green.  

This month's OMG is to complete the blocks for the Red, White and Blue Stars quilt.  I finished one of the five this weekend. 


Now that I've made one and remembered how to assemble these, I've picked up the pace on the rest.  The next two blocks are in progress over at the sewing machine. 

I'm still playing catch up with the sampler blocks that are this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge project.  The third pink block is in progress, the first two are done.

The instructions for this month's teal blocks are printed off and I got as far as selecting the fabrics for June's blocks. 


If I can get these blocks done this week, I'll be all caught up and ready for July's color. 

Hard to believe that Saturday will mark the halfway point in 2018.  I'm not as far along on finishes as I would have liked, but there's been a lot of progress. It's all good.

Your angels quilt is pretty, as are the rest of your blocks. Those teal fabrics are yummy! Have fun over the 4th!

Breathtakingly beautiful bright star. Is it Christmas in July project???

Wow! You really did have some great sewing time. Your star block is fabulous. Is it a 12" block or bigger? The angel quilt is coming along nicely. Do you want to use it this year? You certainly can as you are almost done with the piecing. Go girl, Go! Enjoy your time off.

Isn't funny how when you put a project down for a while, you've got a learning curve after you pick it back up again? That always makes me shake my head at myself! Enjoy a good week of stitching times! :)

I love that red, white and blue star! It looks so perfect and symmetric :)

Your Christmas Angels quilt is looking gorgeous! I love the curved lines that appear when those blocks are combined. It's a very unique way to frame the angels!

Great progress on both UFOs. Hope you enjoy the short week and have some nice relaxing time off!
