Friday Finishes

I have been busy but not at sewing the past week
Was able to make a few blocks of the Retro Air-Ship Propeller. If you hadn't read all about earlier this month about how Karen and I are both making. You can see the post here about the pattern and how to get free copy or one to purchase.
I can add here that after writing that post, Deb at Frugal Little Bungalow decided she was going to join in the fun. I think that is wonderful and I think the more the merrier.

Well started out with this block

Now my thoughts were this was going to be a good pattern to use up some of the fat quarters and scraps. Which is what I'm going to do,

Here are the two we decided we would make for the month.

But if know anything about me I sometimes can just stop when I find a good idea. 
This is a 1930's pattern and I do have a large collections of 30's reproduction fabric. Which was obvious when it came to moving it out of the sewing room.
Came across a tub of fabric that was pink and turquoise 30's
I like that combo and figured I would make a 30's quilts, well that day is here.

So here are another set for the month.
For the background on these will be the same fabric instead of a variety like the others. I like Kona Cotton Snow when making 30's quilts.

Also want to share what little progress on the Words to Live By 

So far I have one side done and half of another.

I think it takes longer to place them like I like then it does to sew them together.

It is a lot of HST. 
Getting it done slowly.


  1. The words to live by is the ultimate quilt for me it is simply gorgeous.

  2. Those propeller blocks look great. The pink and turquoise quilt is going to be really fun, it's a color combination that you don't see often.

  3. I need to get back to working on my blocks - I have been concentrating on finishing a different quilt but now that I am to the point I am I can get some more of these made.

  4. I like the colors in the first set as well as the second. A good idea to do the 30's one if you have a lot of those fabrics; it's going to be lovely!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
