and this too


 and this too

Blocks have been arriving from my friends in Love circle.  Yes, it's yet another quilt brewing called Love on Bourbon Street.  Of course I can't resist lining them up for a little snap shot, a preview of things to come. 

and this too

Oh my, what does that make it?  Four quilts, FOUR, currently in progress?  That's got to be a record for me.  I have Pink Latte waiting on a backing for its finish, that scrappy Pickle Dish variation I started to bring along to Chicago, Improv Score #1 making some exciting progress this weekend and now Bourbon Street blocks too.

and this too

And... secretly... I also have two abandoned quilt tops hanging in my sewing room.  Well, not so secret to those who live here and pass by, but not so present either.  If you leave something out long enough, there's a magic that makes it disappear.  Am I right? 

That's mysterious.  But truly, I should like to see those finished soon.  Maybe if I add them to my list...

  1. Lovely! That gorgeous red (what shade is that?) makes me think it would work well as a Christmas quilt...

    1. Thanks, Ann. It does have a Christmas-y feel in red, doesn't it? We are using different reds, but I used Kona Rich Red, one of my favs.

  2. Love those blocks! They just look better and better together!

  3. So pretty! That red really makes everything pop. I'm not starting anything new for awhile. I'm on a mission to finish what has been hiding in drawers and on shelves. So far, five completed flimsies and blocks completed for two more (three if you count the one I decided to give to someone else to finish). This will clear up some much needed space.

  4. These look great! I love the white on white with the solid red. I have a few on the go at the moment, two at about the same stage - basting and quilting. I really don't like the feeling of splitting time between them but the one I'm motivated for isn't the most urgent! At this point, I always say, "That's it! I'm not going to start anything new until I finish the ones I've started!" But then usually something captures my imagination and I cant help myself! One thing I do like though, is having something to go on with while you mull over the other...I guess it's all a blessing really. Lot of ideas and the fabric to pull it off. xx

    1. Exactly Jodi.
      We are on the same page dearie.
      We need side projects for mulling, which is a massive component to this creativity of quilting.

  5. I just love love love this! I must make one! Definitely on my 'list'! I need to purchase the pattern, but please tell me it is made with 2.5'' strips/squares that finish at 2''? I have so many strips in my stash this size.....

    1. Yes, if I recall right, I do think the squares finish 2". I made mine from individually cut squares, but you could sew a bunch of strips together and then subcut if you were making multiple blocks. Have fun!

  6. 4 projects? At the same time? Oh you naughty naughty little girl.
    You should be sent to sewing prison.

    Now, you aren't somehow urging us to divulge our multiple projects, "all those plates a'spinning" like mad
    because i am not offering. Nope. Not going there.

    I do like red, and these 30 patches as well. Two of my favorite things

  7. Is that Kona Rich Red? It's a great color. That is a neat quilt block. I love the patchwork and the bright border just hits it out of the ball park. Will your bee show us the finished quilt, please?

    1. Yes, I'll be sure to share the finish here! And, what a good eye to spot Rich Red. That's what I used =) Some of the other ladies used different reds, which will give the quilt extra interest, in my opinion.

  8. And more from me--after reading some of the other comments--I've found that if you're working on multiple items it really helps if you can use the same color thread in your machine. Then it's a no-brainer and you can move back and forth between projects. Working on two very different color quilts would just make it a big pain in the butt.

  11. Oh, this is so pretty. I gasped when it came up in my feed. Can't wait to see this one finished. Wow. And am impressed that you only have two quilts in the time out bin. =)

    1. Poor time-out quilts! I must do a post soon about their poor, abandoned lives...

  12. Wow I REALLY love this, I think scrappiness with one solid colour is my fave combo!

  13. This quilt is absolutely captivating! Can't wait to see it in its entirety. As for the matter of how many quilts I have under construction or at some stage of progress ~ ~ well, I'm just not going to admit that number to those of you who only have three or four ~ ~ and yes, Rosemary, I love having some quilts in the "mulling" stage. In fact, I love just about every stage of the process. thank you, Rachel, for sharing and sharing and sharing.
