Thursday was Quilt Therapy

Our last therapy session until after Easter so we tried to be productive.
Joyce is making a casserole cover and is using beautiful batik fabric.

Lots of cutting to do for this one.

Maria is putting the borders on her mystery quilt.
She might add a third border between the 1st and 3rd,
to make the quilt a little bigger.

This log cabin square is the second time around.
I made it and it only measured 12 inches,
so I ripped it all out and used a scant
1/4 inch seam and it is a perfect
12 1/2 inches.

I am also working on something else using
these 2 fabrics plus a third,
but I can't show you right now.
That will have to wait.

More Blocks finished for my BOM's

I was a little bit behind with my BOM because of some visits to the hospital by my relatives with subsequent admissions, but things seem to be on the mend for now so I spent the last few days getting caught up.

Morning Glory Designs

Block 6 Purple Posey

Block 7 Pink Sunflower

I used blanket stitch for both of these instead of satin stitch.
I was having a lot of trouble with the satin stitch clumping
so I went to blanket stitch.

Block # 7

So now I am ready for next month.
