Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

Four (actually 5) more blocks….

Yesterday I posted about quilting the first four blocks of my friend, Diane’s sampler quilt.

Here are the next ones……

These triangles called out for point-to-point arcs…..

….but the FUN happened when I added in a loopy meander…..

If you have read my blog for very long, you will know that ALL of my meanders eventually turn into LOOPY ones!!!

I used more Point-to-point arcs for the next block, although I could have done better on the spacing!!!

To fill in the background, I quilted four feathers that curved around the point!!

I am SO thankful for Angela Walters’ FMQ Feather Challenge. I went in knowing NOTHING and came out feeling okay about feathers!!

Here is the wrap-up post…..

Next, it was time for some more Echo and Arc designs…..

I wanted the inside of the triangles and chevrons to be 1/4-inch inside the block and not be a slanted Dot-to-Dot design, but I did NOT want to break thread every time.

Instead, I sewed a short “entryway” into each of the shapes…..

I don’t think that detract from the design and sure made it easier to execute!!

The last one for today is a simple block with an overall clamshell design…..

It took a bit of time to figure out how to do the edges, but I think that it turned out okay!!

Since we are on a roll, let’s do one more block!!!

I started out with arcs in this “Sawtooth Star” block…..

….. but added some straight lines to fill in the spaces…..

I really like how this traingle looks!!!

So……we have seen 9 of the 12 blocks. Since the next few days will be full of holiday fun, come back next week as we finish the quilt!!!

If you enjoy this daily blog, please share it with your friends!!!

Thank you…….
