I haven't had much time to sew lately. I have taken this up twice so we could show the house and it is no longer on my design floor but should I ever finish another block I can put it down again. I am thinking about adding the sashing so it would be easier to put down each time. As you can see I only have four block left to make. I have three other task that need to be completed before I get back to this one. Maybe one day soon.

Now this is actually on my design wall. The design wall is only 4 feet by 4 feet so it will not hold an entire quilt. This works well for small blocks.

This is block six of twelve of Country Cousins. I did enlarge the pattern and my blocks are 24 inches............ And I plan to hand quilt this one too.

The weekend was spent getting the house ready to show and doing errands while it was being shown. The bread is made, the dog food is made and the house is clean. I am still appliqueing the border on the GFG and quilting the Nine Patch.


  1. Gee, Susan...maybe you should leave it down because it seems to be getting you showings while it is down...says me optimistically.

    It's going to be a beauty when it's done.

    Mac is going to the doggie beauty shop this week too. Boy does he need it!

  2. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt! Perhaps you should sash the rows you have finished? Perhaps that will give you the inspiration to make those four blocks you have left to do? Have fun, and a great week!

  3. These are both going to be beautiful, Susan. I especially like the Country Cousins one!

  4. The blue quilt is lovely! The Irish Chain works perfectly. I too have a small design wall - but it's better than using the floor!

  5. Gosh that's a pretty quilt - I love the color. Your applique looks great too. My mom always like to quilt each block as she went and then used sashing to join them all into a quilt. I keep thinking I want to try something like that too!


Thank you for your comment.......
