Another Crazy Friday Night Sew In…

It was crazy…but fun!!  In fact, over the last couple of nights I have worked on my little Wool Crazy Quilt and I have almost completed 4 more blocks!

There’s the three little pumpkins sitting on the grass..

P1060435

A stalk of blue delphinium…one of my favourite flowers…

P1060436

A spray of holly with a Christmas ball hanging…this isn’t quite finished - I need to sew on three more berries and two more holly leaves at the very end…but before I can do that, I need to do the decorative edge stitch to join the dark green block to the red.

P1060437

And our two dogs, Molly and Rylie…(they aren’t finished yet…)P1060438I took the cat appliqué pattern and replaced the cat’s head for a dog’s head. It was so easy to change it around.  P1060440

Some close ups….

So 9 blocks almost done!!  I wish the colours would photograph better… in ‘real life’ the colours are much darker and richer looking.  But you get the idea…I love this little quilt so far…the hard part is choosing the next appliqué pattern…they are ALL so darn cute!!

GIVE  AWAY Spotted!!  Visit the Old Farmhouse Gathering blog to sign up for the Old Farmhouse Gathering Spring Basket Giveway. It’s chalk full of all kinds of wonderful goodies!! So hurry on over…

Have a super Saturday and Happy Quilting!

It is GORGEOUS! So are the blocks pieced and then you applique on each element of the individual block? I love it deeply and truly and will send you my address if you want to give it to me! I'll take good care of it!

Very nice Paulette! After seeing your post about Friday night sewing I was prepped and ready to go! Then I got so tired I laid down on the couch and promptly fell asleep!! I never do that but a busy work week caught up with me I guess.
I love your quilt so far!!

So cute! I love all of the applique you have chosen. It makes me excited to get started. I have to keep working on finishing some other things though. I sure like looking at your progress, though!

Paulette, your pictures have almost worked their magic on me, meaning enticing me to start this project. I may have to stop reading your blog, but I love your quilt, and know I will continue to pick in on your progress. Good luck with the rest. I know it will be wonderful.

your wool crazy looks better than mine & i have been in Jo Ann's class for 1 year. I am trying to learn all the stitches. It has thrilled Jo Ann that you all have done her project.

Oh, the block is coming along so nicely - love delphiniums, too and at this crazy rate mine might be up soon!!! I'm going to garden today and get rid of last year's dead stuff so the new stuff has room to grow - my poppy leaves are about 8" up already! The puppy block is so sweet - good call on changing the heads! How about that John Montgomery last night!!!!!! Whistler went nutso!

It's looking fantastic, Paulette! You have a great eye for color and I love the mix of patterned wools that add such "texture". Nice job.
