Meet Me in Paris - Pt 1

 Meet me in Paris is a new 'quick project' being shared at the Jelly Roll Club Meeting Room, which is a private group on facebook.  B U T .....  if you join the group, you also can play along.  The project is starting next Sunday  BUT  I had to play around in EQ to make my plan.  THen I had to choose fabrics. I settled for 2 groups of fat quarters, one for the center squares and one for the sashing.

I couldn't resist getting it cut out.  Then I couldn't resist sewing pieces and parts together.!  I made 48 blocks and 20 sashing stripsets which need to be subcut into units.  Why is it so difficult to resist sewing the parts together when they're all stacked nicely from cutting?  

Here is my sampling.  I am positively waiting until next Sunday to assemble all my blocks!


I'm joining these lovely linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing.

Help How Do I quilt It - borders

 Angela Walters is hosting a new quilt along challenge.  You can buy the gorgeous panel to quilt on or you don't have to as the video lessons are free.  They also come with free handouts.  You can find out all about it  at     How Do I Quilt It Challenge – Quilting Is My Therapy

In the meantime .................  the panel was so gorgeous, I determined it was only fit for a bedquilt.  So I delved into adding borders to make it queen size.  I began in EQ8, import a photo of the quilt, then start building around it.  It seems the border style I liked best was made up of 6" x 8" blocks.  It took much messing about to adjust inner borders so the blocks would fit properly around the quilt.  Then, you still have to sew them accurately!  Now, I've added 5 borders in the plan; 3 of which are open background.  These added borders were necessary when I found all my blocks are finishing at 7-3/4" instead of 8", which make for more adjustment to have it fit.  

I'm getting too old for this.  I need to stick to kiddo quilts,  so much fun and quickly done!

So my progress has been to get this pieced border ready for assembly happening at church sew day.

This doesn't look like much  BUT  it is 42 blocks containing 12 pieces in each.  I have told myself "no more bed size quilts" --  more than once.

It's a Block Party !

 I didnt have a flimsy or finished quilt to share so ....... I'm having a block party of blocks made over the past several weeks.

This is the lovely feathered star block which finishes at 24 inches.  It will be the focal point of my Mystery Stars QAL offered by   Jelly Roll Club - Mystery Stars Sampler Quilt (google.com)  This one was a challenge and once may just be enough.



These two blocks were just squares play time.  I do have a plan .....




These remaining blocks are all from the London Calling BOM from GEQuiltDesigns.com.

The first block is segments for the Tower Bridge



This block is for the Underground Railway


and finally all the pieced segments for the 2023 Summer Mystery shared by Grid Girls on Facebook.  I call my project Plum Pudding ...............



With all this piecing going on, it's no wonder I don't have a quilt finish to share.  I'm joining these lovely linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing.
