Hugs & Kisses ICC #4

This is my version of the Hugs & Kisses quilt,  free patttern can be found here ........


I used 3 fabrics, a celery green print for the background, a lovely green and a lovely pink/orange print for alternating blocks.  It really makes a pretty quilt.  I pieced and assembled it over 2 afternoons   I may make another one once I get over my disappointment of having to trim the blocks down to a smaller size.  I used the strip/stratta method to make this one.  I may try traditional cutting/piecing next time.  I have the perfect fleece print for a backing and it is now in my ' waiting to be sandwiched' pile.



I'm sharing today with Connie at Freemotion By the River  and  

Wednesday sharing with  Susan of Quilt Fabrication   and  Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.

RSC18 - Yellows

A bit of progress, finished up 7 blocks I term  "20 triangles"  .   I am tiring of making these blocks, but together they make a gorgeous scrappy quilt,  so I press on.

I also made 70 hourglass units for my new RSC project this year.  I have some plans in EQ to tell me how many of each color I will need,  just haven't looked at it too seriously yet.




I'm linking up with Angela of  Soscrappy  today  and  Sunday linking up with Cynthia of   Oh Scrap.  Be sure to visit these sites to see what other quilters are sharing today.

RSC18 - Greens

I made some progress on the Hourglass quilt.  This week was the batch of 45 scrappy green units.  I also added 4 new purple blocks for the 20 Triangles quilt started last year.   I have 3 new purple blocks to make for that project today.  The top batch of purple hourglass blocks were shared last week.

So this is my design wall today .....................


Pretty soon I will need to use EQ to figure out exactly how many units of each color family I will need.  I know I have a long way to go.

I'm linking up with Angela of Soscrappy today  and  tomorrow
I'll link up with Cynthia for Oh Scrap.  Be sure to visit these sites to see what other quilters are sharing today.
