Leo’s Mane Sew Along

What I’m working on

I’ve added the first of the next round to my Stay at Home Round Robin. The prompt for this round was “squares”. After searching around in Electric Quilt 8 I found this block which will end up forming a diagonal design of triangles and squares around the quilt.

It’s not the greatest picture, but it is getting too big for the available floor or wall space here. Often when my quilts get this size, I’ll do pictures outside, but the wind is really bad. The other choice is to go upstairs and use their front hall. But due to everybody being home, I didn’t want to go up and disrupt them.
I’m also slowly adding to the large scale floral squares. I now have 11.

This picture was taken before the 11th was finished. I am aiming for 25 squares. I have yet to come up with a name for this quilt.
I also loaded another of my really old tops onto the long arm with the goal of getting the quilting finished on all of my tops. This one was a free pattern called Avignon Picnic from the Moda Bake


It is going to get very simple straight line quilting following the lines of the while background.

I’m going to link up to the Needle and Thread Network WIP Wednesday and to Mid Week Makers

  1. I love how your Stay at Home round robin is coming along - very creative! Hubby has twisted my arm to stop mine at pinwheels, though I want to do the arrows - we'll see. But no fear, I've got another one started and told hubby hands off on this one!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
