Work in Progress Wednesday Block 42 done!

Work in Progress Wednesday Block 42 done!

Block 42 doneYay doing a happy dance as holding off on working the hussif means I  have completed block 42 and with that folks … drum roll …. I have all the blocks I need for a quilt!

Oh those words looks so insignificant on the screen but they mean a lot and I am doing more than a simple happy dance. I have to assemble the quilt which I will do but not until life settles a bit (mainly because I take over the dining room to do it)  but the blocks are all made now.

If you click on the photo you will be take to a page that displays a larger photo.

It is in strong colours and similar to block 41. After doing so many blocks in muted colours I enjoyed working these last two blocks.

Once again I used up and down buttonhole feather stitch and added detached chain stitches, and cast on stitch flowers.

I also got a heck of a kick making these button tassels. I worked a zig zag line of chain stitch (marked out using my stencils) then added detached chain stitches and straight stitches on all the peaks and valleys. I next added blue buttons in the spaces between the peaks and valleys and  then went to town with the beads. it was fun!

  1. Oh, well done! So, what’s the next job? I’ve never made a quilt (unless you count a tiny baby one I did years ago – certainly nothing like yours), so I’m a bit clueless as to how it works.

    I’ve been getting on with a little more on my own WIPW project and here’s the link for the week:

    I’m watching ‘A Year in Provence’ and thinking of your French adventures. Have you seen it?=)

    1. Fancy that I am re-reading ‘A Year in Provence’ and wanting to retire there! (thats a dream not a real possibility)
      As to the quilt, I will blog the process as I did with my diamond quilt but it does mean I have to take over the dining room for a few weeks so I am waiting for a few clear weeks to do it.

  2. Hi Sharon, I like this WIP Wednesday, it is inspiring. I added a few things to my sewing kit. Venice lace, beads to chevrons and beads to some french knots. This WIP helps me with my perspective, to relax with the process.

    1. Elizabeth no size restriction at all – I am thinking of adding a larger bag to mine so I can fit a project with it and take it to the local embroiderers guild meetings (we all stitch at the meeting). I have also decided I really want to use it as sort of sampler of techniques that can be used in CQ so my project is expanding too – I think you need to design what fits for your sewing habits
