Small and Tiny Blocks

First, the small. Pink and green log cabin blocks that finish at 5″, made with the .50″ Log Cabin collection. There are 12 done and enough printed for another 12 or 16, I think – it’s been so long since I’ve worked on these that I don’t quite remember. Some are hand pieced, some machine pieced. I’m thinking this may be the perfect stitching for out on the roof garden this summer and I’ll get this little quilt finished. This one is destined to be a wall hanging and one I know I’ll love as many of my favourite shabby chic fabrics are in along with some pink and green batiks.

The tiny. Tiny 2″ Drunkard’s Trail blocks made with the 2″ Drunkard’s Trail Inklingo collection. Four blocks are made and joined and three more have been added. I only need to make 9 more of these little blocks and join them to make the quilt I’ve got planned. Another one that just might be the perfect thing for roof garden stitching. I realized when I got that project box back out just how many shapes for it I had printed on fabric. I’ve got enough to make at least 4 or 5 small quilts. Perhaps one long thin table runner will be made once I make the 8″ x 10″ quilt I have planned. That will only take another 13 little blocks and should be something I can do quickly.

Both those projects came back to somewhere near the top of the list when I excavated my sewing table a couple of weeks ago. And both have stayed out to be worked on mostly because I know I can complete the two small quilts relatively quickly. So they are going to be worked on soon. I think it will give me a feeling of accomplishment to get a few small quilts done quickly. That sewing table excavation threw me a bit when I realized just how many projects I’ve got on the go. Some finishes are in order … and soon.

That said, I started working on the red and white Feathered Star/Sunflower quilt border again last night. I guess I just needed that break from it because now I can see that there really isn’t that much left to do. Perhaps 2 weeks of stitching or maybe 3 (because we all know I get distracted and want to play with other things) and I should have that top finished.

This is one of Baxter’s favourite poses.

  1. That’s it. I’m writing to Linda. “No more new Inklingo collections until Cathi finishes her Feathered Star!” You are so easily distracted and I’m so anxious to see that one! But I really understand distractions. Baxter is a cutie. That pose is one of Miss Kitty’s favourites too!

  2. Love the pink and green blocks…they say “Ahhhhh” to me, as does Baxter’s pose! Time to relax and enjoy the moment! And somehow I was anticipating a comment about the red and white feathered star. LOL! Can’t wait to see how it all comes together. Happy stitching!

  3. That pink and green quilt reminds me of some flowers I saw at the grocery a little while ago. I picked them up and said, “These look like Cathi”. They were various shades of nothing but pink and then greenery.
    Such a unique Drunkards Path! Very Victorian looking, to me.

  4. you have me wondering about the drunkards trail blocks and a long skinny table runner……. maybe later I don’t have the collection for that at least.
    the pink and green is very pretty. Love the coon sleep pose. It just says rub my tummy please.

  5. Just when I don’t think Baxter could get any cuter! I LOVE the pink and green blocks, now that’s all I’ll be able to think about!! I still absolutely marvel at how much you get done, Cathi! Sending a Texas-sized hug! 🙂
