A “Not Finished” Friday

55557-go-glorified-nine-patch-package-tallNothing finished

No finishes this week!  I’ve been working A LOT on my March Island Batik challenge and I can’t show you yet!  I can tell you that I’m using the “Glorified 9 patch” Accuquilt die that I was given.  All the pieces for the block are on the die.  I have them all cut and most of them are on the design wall. Some blocks are sewn.

When I need a break from the excusiating SLOW curved piecing, I am quilting the “52 blocks in 52 weeks” quilt.  If you look closely, you can see that I’m doing graffiti quilting.  A little bit of this and a little bit of that! A swirl, pebbles, a heart, a teardrop, a flower and whatever comes to mind.  It’s fun and makes it so that I’m not bored.  I’m hoping that it will be finished soon!IMG_6222.jpeg

  2. Hi Gail! I am so impressed that you are to the quilting point on your 52 blocks project. What a great idea doing a mish-mash of quilting techniques on this piece. It seems very fitting for a sample quilt with 52 different types of blocks. Thanks for linking up for TGIFF. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Thanks, Roseanne!
      It’s a quilt I want out of the way … done and done … so the only thing to do is GET IT DONE!!! With all the different blocks, graffiti quilting just made sense to me! I’m so glad that my cousin, Terry, got me hooked on it!
      Thank you for hosting TGIFF!!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂

    • Hi Kathleen!
      I’m sure you could do grafitti quilting! It’s like having a practice sandwich and doing whatever you want. If it doesn’t turn out exactly how you want, you just pretend that was the intention! 🙂
