Work in Progress Wednesday

I have been working on these quilt blocks a lot lately.  Each (18") block takes about an hour and a half  to make, from start of cutting a fat quarter for the half square triangles to the last seam on the block.  Of course that doesn't account for when the kids are awake.

Twelve done, eight to go!

Today I ran out of fabric for my blocks, so I am waiting for my order of fabric from Hawthorne Threads to get here.  I'm kind of tired of making these blocks for now though, so I'm okay with a break for a day or two!

Wish the lighting was better for these photos, the lights in my sewing room have a terrible yellow cast.  The dark fabric is navy, not black!

I'm glad I've been able to focus on this quilt so much lately though.  I hope I have as much motivation and momentum to get the last of the blocks done before too long!  I'm looking forward to finishing this quilt!

  1. I'm glad you told us it was navy! I cant say that I would have guessed! I do love the contrast of the dark with the lights though!

  2. Really navy? It looks great in black / gray, but navy isn´t so sad. This block is really great, I want to try it :)

  9. This looks great, black or navy either way. :) I'm glad you mentioned it was navy, I can picture it a little better. I love the high contrast you've created with the Tula prints. This will be a good quilt.
