AB Quilt Progress

I've made progress with the blocks for my new quilt - only four left to go.  Going to have to piece some of the white strips together to have enough, but can totally make it without having to buy more fabric! That was part of my plan - use only supplies that I have on hand.




I braved the mosquitoes to get some outside shots. Mosquitoes are TERRIBLE here right now. Are you having that problem? Probably not since all the mosquitoes seem to be in my backyard!


I'm planing for four blocks across and five rows down.  Simple with eight inch squares surrounded by white.  I think I like the big squares showing off the prints.



Only four more blocks to make, then it's time for the design wall and determining the layout for the quilt.

What are you working on?

  1. Wow those look great. My favorite is probably the one of the left bottom picture with the black background and pink outline. The white borders really make the colors all stand out!

  4. This is looking really pretty - I love the outdoors shots, though you would't get me outside with the mosquitos!

  5. How lovely, and yay to you for using stash! I always get eaten by mosquitos when I venture outside, so I feel your pain. We have to spray down with repellent just to use my daughter's swingset in the middle of the summer. But the photos are totally worth it because they are cheerful and the background color makes the blocks stand out even more.

  9. Your photos and blocks are beautiful. My niece thinks we should get a pet bat. Have you heard how many mosquitos they eat a day? But I think that might be worse!

  12. Those pretty prints look fabulous against the white background, Laney! We live on a hill. So the wind seems to keep all the mosquitoes away from our place. Great photos!
