The Finishing Zone

I must have been in the finishing zone yesterday! As the previous post shows, I finished my Blue & Brown four patch quilt. Thank you, by the way, for all the emails about it. I used a combination of Roberta Horton plaids, Jo Morton prints, and some French General plaids, along with the reproduction blue print, and it measures 90 x 90.

Before I started sewing yesterday, I finished up my One Row Lace Scarf!


I used Spirit Trail Fiberworks Sunna yarn (LOVE!) in the Antique Tapestry colorway and I love it! It's 72" long and so soft and smooshy! I'm excited to have this done, as it was the First Quarter Challenge project at The Loopy Ewe!
Late last night after I finished the blue & brown four patch....I decided to tackle some more four patches...leftover cheddar blocks that had been sitting around the quilt den.

Remember these?


I decided to do a strippy set with the cheddar four patches and these fabrics.


The prints are Mary Koval reproductions.


The strippy set went together quickly and this one is just 31 x 41, so it didn't take long!

Today I think I'll cast on a new knitting project or two and stitch on a sampler or two! A great way to spend a Sunday!

Have a great day!

*Peace!

I really like the way the scarf turned out, and the color is gorgeous! I had to check out the pattern for this one. Looking forward to seeing what's next.

Your scarf is great Kim. And love your new quilt too - and the one in the last post (how did I miss that). I've finally got my quilting mojo going and now I don't want to stop!!

They both look great Kim - that scarf reminds me of Thanksgiving with the beautiful blend of autumn shades.

Your cheddar & white checkerboard really pops! Congrats on both :)
