So I’m still way behind on posts that I started to write in mid-April, but I decided to scrap one of those draft posts and rework it into my May Goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes: my unfinished Layer Cake Sampler Quiltalong blocks/quilt top. While I was on vacation, I got seven more blocks done and I’ve done two more since then, but I think I still have five more to go. Here’s the newest finishes:
(Yikes! I forgot to take pictures of the last two blocks! I’ll add them in tomorrow or you can probably see them in my Instagram feed thing on the right. Unless I’ve taken pictures since then, but I don’t think so!)
Maybe I should say more about these blocks, but there’s just too many to really talk about them all! But to say what I’ve said in the past: the prints are all from Basic Grey’s Eva line of fabrics and the off-white is a Moda Bella solid.
I’m pretty sure I’ve got five left to sew up in order to finish all 20 blocks, so my goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is to get those blocks done and to get the quilt top pieced… So I still need to cut out the sashing and figure out what to do for cornerstones (it isn’t easy to find more of this fabric and I’m not sure how much Eva fabric I’ve got left in my stash). And of course piecing all of it. It’s going to be quite a big quilt top, really, so it’s the kind of thing I love to put off and never finish…
