Quilt Pattern

This is my OMG for February.  I would like to finish all of the blocks this month.  I may be able to get the sashing in too.

With all of the hiking and driving and shopping, apron making and general travel stuff, you'd think there wouldn't be time to work on a quilt.  I still crave quilting and I am inspired when I visit fabric shops.  After I visit a shop, I have to pull out my quilt project and sew a few seams. I am working on another quilt pattern for my 10 inch squares. For this pattern, I chose the Citrus Fruit Palette half stack from Robert Kaufman.  Half Stacks have 24 ten inch square pieces.  There are two of each color in the stack.  I really love these colors with the white background.

You can see I have blocks in all stages of completion including uncut triangles 

This is a half square triangle pattern.

Patience is a virtue and you become very virtuous when making this quilt.  I pressed all of my seams open to reduce the bulk on the back.  Pressing seams open takes time.

I would like to finish this quilt by the end of February but it's hard to be inside sewing when it's so warm and lovely outside.  I am creating the pattern for this quilt and will post the finished top when the pattern is ready.  I haven't named this quilt yet-I'm terrible at naming quilts.  Any suggestions?

  1. I always intend to keep on quilting when we travel but must admit I do no get done with a lot - we are always so busy hiking and just looking at the scenery and visiting places we haven't seen or want to see again - always time for quilting when you get back home!

    1. It is hard to pull the sewing stuff out in our little space, but I just crave it. It's a sickness.

  2. The blocks are so bright and cheerful. They remind me of spring especially when it is so cold and frigid and snow-covered here. Warm & Lovely outside??? I am so jealous. "Juicy Pinwheels" comes to mind.

  3. Love those bright and cheer colors you're using!

  4. What a fun block! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts and good luck on your project!

  5. Perfect colors to work on in the winter months. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!

  6. I love the block. How about "spinning jacks" for a name? They remind me of those jacks we played as children.
