Quilt for an Hour Two

My progress today on Judy's Hour a Day Autumn quilt:



I got all the paper torn off all my triangles. I rotary cut the three color squares, and the two background squares for each leaf, AND cut the background green squares for each lattice block. Then I got industrious and cut the stem fabric, seamed it together into a tube, and machine appliqued it down diagonally to 13 of my background squares. I LOVE the little applique stitch on my new machine, this is the first time I've used it. Well, I didn't get the instruction book out, but I used #34 on quilting mode, for you Janome folks, and it looks good to ME. :D

I've still got to cut the last three stems apart... and *confesses* I'm procrastinating on my least favorite job... anyone remember? It'll be the first thing I do when I get home from work tomorrow night, I Promise! Then I can reward myself by sewing my leaf blocks together.

love your colors - you know the thing about ironing is that you can multi-task when you are doing it! enjoy

Nice! Is green your background? Are you using brown stems for all of the leaves? I can't wait to see your quilt grow.

Hope you find some great music or a TV show to watch while ironing and squaring up :-)

Wow! Look at all those colors! It is looking wonderful!

It's looking great - I love the green background.

Very good progress. Pat yourself on the back.

Looks like good progress. Now that the weather isn't nearly as hot, ironing shouldn't be quite as bad. I like the pressing part, because it starts showing the beautiful unveiling of the blocks.

Okay, after seeing these very neat stacks, you are tempting me to start another project!

i like the colors you're using for your leaves. Are you using brown for all the stems? Great idea.

Yeah! you go girl! It's looking like progress to me- nobody like Judy to keep you moving along! I just found my applique stitch on my machine, too! Who knew it was there? Love it! Can't wait to see the next stage!

I love the fall colors you picked with the green!
