WeeK 9... GettinG a LiTTLe CLoSeR

I started each sewing session off this week by finishing a few colour sets of 3 "string" blocks for my next charity quilt...
Two In Red... One in Yellow... One in Dark Green... & Three in Brown.
That makes 28 blocks of 35 finished.

As previously mentioned, I purchased the Harvest Moon kit in 2012 but after positioning it on my "design wall"... I decided that it just wasn't doing it for me.  So I changed the layout slightly, made it smaller... & now it's become a 46in x 68in charity quilt. Obviously my taste has changed quite considerably since 2012.
I'll hand this flimsy to our guild, with the backing fabric & binding... for quilting.
I've added this "flimsy" to my WOOFA "completed" list as I won't be seeing it again.

The project I worked next on was my Christmas Tree Skirt...
The second "block" BLITZeN, has been fully appliqued & embroidered & also sewn to the adjacent block. I also finished the embroidery between the 2 blocks that joins the train together .


I decided to complete the next block "#3" - DoNNeR - too.
So now blocks 1-3 have been completed... & I'm LoVinG the look of it so far...

I always enjoy seeing these string blocks come together.They look great.
And that is very smart think to change the quilt layout. Using it as a donation is so sensible when tastes change. Someone else will really love it.
Your tree skirt panel are totally gorgeous. lovely work.

Your string blocks will make a great community quilt and when Harvest Moon is completed will be loved by someone...
The sections of the christmas skirt is looking fabulous.

Your strip blocks are so pretty. I have the papers to make a strip quilt, just need to prep some fabric. I like how you re-set the Harvest Moon layout. I have an older UFO kit that no longer fits my taste but I hate to discard it. I like the idea of making it into a charity quilt. Thanks for the inspiration.

I always love string blocks and you've got a great assortment of pretty fabrics. That Christmas Tree Skirt is ADORABLE!!! Is it a pattern or are you creating it?

The blocks are fabulous but the greens are my fave :) The tree skirt is adorable. Is it a kit or pattern or an original ?
