Craftster Lap Quilt Swap Winter Edition: Blocks for whoopdedoo_5, SandyBradley, and Laurel

Still working on these Lap Quilt Blocks! I know it must be getting boring to keep seeing just quilt block squares, but it helps me keep track of what I have finished by having them cataloged here. It also serves as a visual journal of what I have accomplished throughout my days.

The block above is for Whoopdedoo_5. I love the sand and surf fabric she is using. The blues and browns are such soothing, calm colors. I have one more block I need to make for her.


This block is for Sandy Bradley. She wanted us to use the rosebud fabric (in the middle) and the purple. She sent so many beautiful fabrics that I wanted to use them all!

Finally, a block for Laurel. I love the simplicity of this one. The tan background is such a warm, natural brown.

My tally is now eleven out of twenty-two blocks finished! Only eleven more to go, but I am half way there!

I am still knitting for about half an hour each night and progress is being made on my scarf. I think I ended up tearing out about 9 rows, but I have reknitted all those rows! It does look better now.;)

Gorgeous! Luck, lucky recipients who are to receive YOUR work, your beautiful blocks.

I know how you feel, posting and wondering if I'm repeating myself. We should stop doing that, don't you think! I like my blog(s) exactly because I use it as a sewing journal, to share my work, but most especially to follow the creative process. Keep posting! I learn from you, especially this quilting thing which is still very much new to me. Each piece is a work of art.

Yay! I have 4 more left including mine, though I only had 12 to begin with:-)

These are going to be really nice! I especially like the sand and surf--Penny at Pennyquilts recently paper-pieced a star quilt using those fabrics and they turned out beautifully.

Wow, you are really making progress! I'm now struggling for inspiration. I may just have to decide on a block and just SEW IT!
Cheers,
Dionne
PS - I also love the different fabrics.

I like all of them. I've seen that sand and surf in a catalog, I think. It is a beautiful fabric and I'm a big fan of brown and blue together. And the bottom one is very simplistic but that, to me, is the beauty of it. I don't mind seeing these blocks at all! Just keep 'em coming!

Beautiful blocks. I especially like the one with the pink and tan. I figure a blog is like a journal so I thinks it's a great way for you to keep track.
