Like a rolling stone....

I decided to give the applique a break today. I am starting those gold circles and they are a little tedious. I love my new iron though to work with them you can see it on the right of the portable ironing board


 So I decided to start on a project that I had already cut out a while ago that has been sitting on the quilt frame...










Do you remember the Stonehedge fabric that I bought that I thought I would never buy? the pattern that talked me into buying this fabric was calling me so I started putting the blocks together.

then I needed a little break
so this is what is done so far...not as easy as it looks there are a few `Y`seams in there..but I love what is happening. I have 11 blocks pieced and  I have about 7 blocks to finish and then I go to the celtic block. and then there is the celtic boarder...do I really have to work tomorrow??
Hope you all had a great weekend..as you can see we have left no stone unturned...LOL (honestly I am surprised how bright the blocks look they don`t look that bright in real life)

  2. Isn't that just the cutest little iron? If it was a fish you would have to throw it back because it is below the legal catch size.......love the textured look of the Stonehenge fabrics.

  3. Very nice! I guess your other project won't mind waiting if it will get this kind of attention in the end.
