.......About the Row Along Quilt. I'm absolutely loving it. I first saw it on Nedra's blog. I've always enjoyed reading her blog and so when I saw it I knew I had to jump in and do it too!! You can find complete instructions at Bee In My Bonnet by Lori Holt. It took me a couple of weeks to find fabric to do it in. I searched through my stash and finally decided on some American Jane fabrics from Moda that I've had for awhile. I think they will work great since there are 4 prints of each color on the yardage. I'm using Kona Snow for the background.
I did the butterfly blocks first. They are smaller butterflies from the ones I did for a quilt a couple of years ago. Then I did the apple blocks. I really enjoyed piecing those 2 rows. In fact I've been doing 2 rows of each block so I can make 2 quilts from this project.
I was surprised how much work went into the flying geese rows and how small the blocks were. A little tedious work there. Not sure I would do those again that small. I did like doing the chevron row.
I did a couple of the hot chocolate mugs tonight. After sewing all weekend on these blocks I'm burned out. Maybe I need a couple days away from it before I finish that row. I'm really thankful to Lori for doing this Row Along. It's going to be fun to see the final quilt top. I can't wait to see what fun rows she has planned for the rest of the quilt.
Now off to bed. It's a chilly 18 degrees outside and I can't wait to snuggle in for the night!
