Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Thursday 3 November 2011

Time for a tea break............

Time for a break, and a progress report. The quilt Summer Rental, (I have no idea why the author named it that), by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, is coming along quite nicely, and I'm really happy with the way it is looking. I almost always start working from the centre of a quilt and work outwards, when beginning  a new quilt, and assemble enough of the elements to be able to see what it looks like. I'm too impatient to to all the block elements first, and the sew them into blocks. I like working a few blocks at a time. So, I cut a bit, sew a bit, press a bit, and repeat. The exception this time was all the star points in this quilt, which is what all those triangles off to the side are. Considering this was only started this past week, not bad, not bad at all. I'm hoping to have this to at least a finished top stage before I go back to work on the 12th. Unless I come up with a sudden inspiration on how to quilt this, (any suggestions gratefully received, by the way), I don't imagine it will get quilted before then. And now, tea break is over, and I'm going back upstairs to sew.


  1. Very pretty. Fun to visit your blog on my break.

  2. Wow - look at you! I like how you put things together. It's nice. I struggle with wanting things done in a particular order. Like when I was doing the swap blocks, it really bothered me to sew one block completely together before I'd gotten all the other blocks prepped and ready to sew together too! LOL -- I'm so silly! Gosh -- the 12th -- that's next Saturday isn't it? I'll pray the next eight days move a little more slowly for you!! :)

  3. Your quilt top is coming along nicely and looks wonderful. I hope that you are able to find the time to complete it before you go back to work. It deserves to be cuddled right away!


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.
