The bottom row had "trams" added & then sewn together...
most of the large middle section was sewn as well...
with LoTs of cutting of 2 1/2 inch fabric squares...
and h-e-a-p-s MoRe sewing...

The "boys" 36 inch charity quilt was quilted... in a simple free motion loops design using variegated thread... but I think it looks OK . The binding was added so another FiNiSH ✅.

Lots of string blocks were added to the pile this week.
I used the last of the " green " scrap backing... & the rest of the " blue" backing ...
Luckily... I had more scrap backing to use up so I cut the last two in black... 😁
I decided on the layout of blocks... to check out the backing placement really... & as it looks great I'll start on the joining process asap.

I found some left over "tumbler" blocks that were given to me about 10 years ago.
Over time I used some of the colours... so I had to improvise with what was left.
Anyways, I started sewing the tumblers together... & added a border to make it to size. I've added some applique to add some interest too... more later...
And I thought I'd show what I use to mark my rows.
Quilting pins with an alphabet letter slid onto it... simple but effective... & the letters are available from any discount store.
heaps going on at your place, I just love the Once Upon a Time quilt and your applique is so good. Great to see your tumblers out to play and some lovely quilting... I love loops - they always look great..... thanks for the alphabet markers... much nicer to use safety pins rather than spikey ones... I have to do a hunting gathering so will pop in and see if I can get some (they do counts as essential supplies don't they???)
The Once Upon a Time quilt is lovely
Busy as always. The once upon a time quilt is progressing nicely. Looking forward to seeing your progress pics on that one.
The pins are a neat idea.
Your GD's quilt seems to be growing well - it's gorgeous; all that sewing will be so worth it. Great work on the boy's baby quilt too. That's a great hint about the small 'beads' on the safety pins. Lots of beautiful sewing.
Once Upon a Time is looking just gorgeous. Your granddaughter will be over the moon when she receives it. You have some lovely projects heading to the finish line.
Your GD is going to Love her gorgeous " Once Upon a Time" quilt...
Great Loopy quilting on your PICU quilt and nice pile of String blocks..
Such a good way to mark your rows too.
Your granddaughters's quilt top will be done in no time at this rate. It really is beautiful.
Your Once Upon a Time quilt is zooming along and looking amazing. What a gorgeous quilt for a grandie.
And lovely work with the strings, tumblers and donation quilt. So much going on.
Thank you for sharing that great idea with the letters on the pins for marking rows. That is one I do want to try.
Lots of beautiful projects happening at yours Cheryll, love the Once upon a time quilt.
Love the Once Upon a Time and the boys quilt too - clever idea about the pins...I'm onto it!
thanks for FNWF
I'd kiss that frog on your "once upon a time" quilt. He's a cutie!
Clever idea for the pin labels.
As always, you have been busy. Your granddaughter's quilt is looking amazing - and very close to a finished top? x
