Squirrel-ville

We got to have nice retreat last weekend. I had several projects planned and bounced around on different ones. I worked on my Red Crinoline Quilt, Bristle Creek Farmhouse block of the month.

4 of my blocks!

After that I decided that I would work on this quilt designed by Thimble Blossoms, Camille Roskelley, called Round & Round. The pattern was designed to use charm packs and do a lot of trimming, resulting in 3-inch finished half-squares. I asked Cindy to cut this quilt out for me and she called to confirm how I wanted to make it and it was with an overwhelming vote to use Star Singles and much simpler in my mind.

I worked on my half-squares and got them all cut, sliced and diced and then it was time to lay out the blocks.

It was laid out in a different way, which translates to confusion for me. I made one block! Wahoo!

Then I was ready for the other blocks and I decided to just lay it out on top of one another and sew them up in rows. The setting was very simple and it was easy to assemble.

Monday night I was able to get it all finished. I used Riley Blake solid and I really liked using it. I think this was the first time I used their solids, they almost had a brushed feeling to it.

Oh, I wanted to share my new blooms! They are going to get better and better!

I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
Ronda
