    Because Joy was so much fun to make, I decided to do one that was a bit more "boy" friendly. So, Joy meet Wilbur. And, I loved the piggy done in orange. So, back to the scrap bin I went.



    Joy and Wilbur will both be getting an eye and one will get a spider and one will get a kite tomorrow. I am working on quilting them as I go blocks. Joy is almost finished.

    Well MandyRose, it was a great memory and an excellent use of the last of your fabric.

    You could always paint the backgrounds with fabric paint if you only need small pieces. (Like with the pig.) I don't want to think about doing enough for a whole quilt. You would just have to use the white paint with a bit of the clear fabric medium added in to keep it soft. And, cotton balls to add the clouds. (Very light handed.) Although, you have to think ahead so it is premade or that you have drying time.

    But, either way, it is really cute fabric.

    Wilbur is adorable. And your sky fabric is wonderful. I never would have thought of that zig zag, but it works great.

    I wish I could take credit for using the Chevron fabric for a background. But, it was GracefulAnn in the 2017 Summertime block swap who inspired me to use it. She used it as a background for one of her blocks. And, I just loved the idea.

    Oh, so much creativity going on here!

    Teen, I love the blossom tail!

    Judith, two quilts... What a wonderful idea! I'm tempted to do the same, especially if I do the QAYQ method.

    Yesterday we sent the day painting one of the sheds. We got the first coat on and half way though the second coat. Then last night as DH and I were putting the girls to bed we hear a creaking bang from the basement! One of the house jacks slipped a bit and made the house setting a bit more. So there goes a peaceful Sunday... We will be building more support walls in the basement to help support the jacks down there. The joys of a 1870's house I guess!

    That sounds a bit scary NZ. I do hope you get your supports up quick. Old houses do have their quirks. But, these days, you can't get a house with that kind of character. So, It definitely sounds worth it to "support" the old gal.

    I was bored, a million things I should be finishing and I decide on not 1, 2 but 3 farm quilts. I will do these blocks 2 at a time. Because it is just one block a month. But, I also need to decide how to finish my farm swap block quilt as well. I have it on my design wall while the idea is taking shape.

    So many terrific blocks. I have learned my lesson to wait a while before tackling the block. There are so many wonderful ideas, I would end up with a sty full to use them all. Good job everyone.

    Oh my goodness NZ!! That's a bit scary to have happen. Did you purchase a home warranty? Though, with an old home, you can expect some quirks but this is about the structural integrity and should be covered.

    I keep looking at my block and the finishing instructions and I think I'm going to change my quilt design from the pattern. I have some ideas floating around in my head so I'm going to let them simmer a bit...

    Judith...I have my summertime blocks quilt to do too but I cannot find a panel I like. I keep looking but, so far, nothing appeals to me.

    Well my piglet is from sunny and hot California - she cannot face the sun.
    Just need to stitch around the sun and piglet. I’ll do that when it gets cooler upstairs. Lol

    Oh Judith I love the embellishments. You are so creative. I am working on my winter swap right now, because I have a deadline. But I have pulled my fabrics for my piggy. Just dying to start......

    She's such a darling piggy. I don't blame her for not wanting to face the sun. It was a pretty hot sunny day here today also. But, now, the rain is here. Glorious rain! I know you need rain bad. Might help with all the fires.

    Thank you. Yes, I decided to forego the fencing. I've been wanting to try this method of quilt as you go. So, this is as good a time as any.

    This is a very cute starting block!
    I love farm animal quilts, and took part in the farm block swap, receiving so many great blocks. I'll probably follow along with this and make some to add and/or make more than one quilt.
    If your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough!

    Too funny, Nanny's dollface! And a lovely pig block too!

    Everything went well with the house supports. A construction engineer told us how to support the house with each support able to hold over 7,000 lbs. We have half the house done with a dozen supports and the other half to go. It's a great peace of mind getting it done! I'm very blessed that my DH is such a handyman. Saves us many labor bills.
