    McKenna Ryan "Home Tweet Home" blocks done!!

    This is how I spent this past week!! Finally got the 9 blocks done! Boy, there were sure some small pieces!! I used my own fabrics, since I have been collecting Batik FQs for a while for it. It is fused, and once it is sandwiched, they will be quilted, then I will add embellishments. First, I need to get the final pattern for sashings and border, or at least the measurements and directions. Does anyone out there have it and is willing to sell??? This was so much fun to make if anyone loves fusible appliqué !

    Masterful job of chosing the colors and doing the applique. I don't know if I will ever be that ambitious.

    The nice thing about this series of patterns, you can buy only one block at a time, and it gives instructions to make a wall quilt. This would give you the opportunity to try it, then decide if you want to make one of two more as a grouping, or make the whole quilt. It isn't hard, just fiddely and takes patience. If you you like hand work and have patience, you should try it!

    Love it. McKenna Ryan anything is on my to do list.... Oh, I wish I had more hours in a day So many beautiful quilts to be done so little time. You have inspired me to move one of her patterns to the top of my to-do list.

    McKenna Ryan's patterns are great but require a lot of work. Your quilt turned out gorgeous and so worth the time.

    Very cute, (even if upside down, LOL). It looks like the "official" setting is pretty simple, something you could do without a pattern. http://pineneedles.com/SuperStore/Su...ssortmentID=59 I have some McKenna Ryan patterns (not this one) and have been dreading all those small pieces, which is why they're not done yet.

    Thanks! Yes, this one will hang in my sewing nook, replacing another appliqué quilt I made about 15 years ago. That one will go in the spare bedroom (where hardly anyone will see it!!!!)

    Is it upside down???. It is straight on my screen. I know it looks simple, and probably is, but my lack of confidence prevents me from trying without a pattern. I will probably just buy one if no one has it here. I hate to screw it up and waste that expensive fabric I bought for it.

    I bought all the kits as a BOM. Haven't attempted to start it yet. Seeing your picture inspires me to tackle mine. I hope mine turns out as nice as yours. I think the cutting out of the little pieces will be a good thing to do while watching TV with DH. A lot of the time I don't care what is on the TV, DH sometimes likes me in the room with him. LOL. Thanks for sharing.

    Just make sure you have good light over where you are cutting! I use my Ott light on my table, which sits in an alcove off to the side of the living room where the TV is, so I can still watch if I want and feel like I am in there.
