Time for an update on my progress with Stonefields. I am still quite smitten with this quilt and love having these little blocks prepped for a little stitching whenever I have a moment. Perfect to fit in between my machine sewing bouts with the mystery quilt or holiday festivities. Outside decorating was done today, once again a new house means trying to figure out how to use what we have in a new arrangement. And we are still trying to figure out how to fit a Christmas tree in here! I have located one Christmas quilt, hmm where are the others?
So here are some more Stonefields blocks. The pattern shows all of these blocks with the inner cross but I decided to highlight a fabric in the center circle in two of them.
Here are a few flower blocks. I just love these little posies throughout the quilt.
I am not sure what these half circle blocks are supposed to be but they do offer an opportunity to use some large prints.
A couple 4 patch blocks set on point. I know the script is upside down in this photo but I think the flowers look better this way. Not sure how I will put it in the final quilt.
This flower is probably the most time consuming block I have done so far. I have one more of these still to stitch.
And this block is actually from part 4. I had a few minutes this week that I needed to stay up in my studio and hide out and this is what I did. Why hide out? Well, my DH forgot to tell me that we had a termite inspection early one morning and when the guy arrived I was still in my pjs (though truth be told I love my pjs and you might find me in them anytime of day). I was glad that my sewing room was upstairs! Anyway back to this block. There are no measurements for rotary cutting, instead templates are provided which would be perfect for hand piecing. But I decided to machine piece this one and spent a little time doing the math to make it work out. There are two more of these to make, a perfect chance to look for some fabric to highlight in the center square.
A few more hexagons done.
And finally all the finished blocks so far. I apologize for my poor photography but these big shots are really difficult. My temporary design wall must lean against cabinets behind it so it is on a slant which makes focusing very tricky!
