Temecula Summer Quilt - Week 9

As Summer is finishing, so is this Temecula Summer Block of the Week! This is Week 9. I had it stitched last weekend, but was not able to get a picture of it until this afternoon...


Right now, this quilt top has built it's borders out to 41" square! While I did receive the last weeks instructions in the mail already.... I did fall a bit behind on the piecing... Week 10 is on my sewing bench and in progress. The blocks are pieced together, they just need trimming and assembly into the border.

I also managed to get the quilting and binding finished on this little (approximately 12" square) quilt...


It's a Primitive Gatherings design from a couple of years back. The pattern was free... and I went and purchased the fabric kit for it because of the Glory Gatherings fabrics. Fun little piece, but now it is tucked away for next Summer...

Time to get the pumpkins and autumn leaves out for display...

Until next time... stay healthy and keep on smiling!

Temecula Summer Quilt - Week 8

Those little squares are quite habit forming... so much so, that I had to get back to the sewing bench last night and sew together all of those little 4-patches... and then stitch those borders to the still growing Temecula Summer Block of the Week Quilt...


This was one of my favorite borders on this quilt! Temecula Quilt Company shipped the cream and a couple of small pieces of fabric... but, the fun was going back into the scraps that were saved from all of the previous borders! :-)


My first time using up such small pieces of fabric, and let me tell you... I think I have another obsession! lol! Here are the 4 border pieces all lined up on the ironing board (waiting to be pinned to the quilt)...


... and here is a little close up of the little squares... kinda looks like some sort of tile game, no? ;-)


Anyways... all this was making me wonder if I should have some fun and get going on some MORE scrappy 4-patches (made of 1-1/2" squares)... and see just how BIG of a quilt I can make from my scrap bin? *grin* That will have to wait until Winter though... as I must finish up the half dozen projects I have in progress before I find more trouble... lol!

Until next time... stay healthy & keep on smiling!
