Now my DJ top is ready for quilting,
as you see I took out 16 blocks from the middle,
added some tulips in a vase
and switched the blocks.
From the 16 blocks I didn't use I will make a mini quilt.

Have a wonderful week,
and happy quilting.

Four corners

I was going to have the corners plain with background fabric.
But what do you know, I did the four corners this week.
Not so hard to do, except for the green one BCL.
66 pieces in this one corner.

Now my top is almost ready.

Will post a picture soon hopefully.

In my last post was a triangle named Brigadoon, and I
did not know what that was. 
But  Pip looked it up. Thank you Pip.

It is a Scottish village and also a title of a musical film about 
the magical Scottish village.
I found some interesting trailers of this film, just for fun,
has nothing to do with Dear Jane.
It is since 1954, not so old.


Two more

Brigadoon (What is the meaning  of this word?)
TR8, Reverse appliqué, only two pieces.
It looks like a mask.

Watermelon, LS13, foundation pieced and hand appliqué,
22 pieces.
I see a clown face in this one.

Until next time
Happy stitching.

DJ in blocks

Now I have 8 big blocks made of DJ blocks.
Some are 3x4  and some are 4x4 blocks.
I don't think I will be making any more blocks,
well, not for the moment.
We will see what comes out of this....

Until next time
Happy stitching

Twisted DJ

When I stared to sew on the sashing I had a second thought
of that quilt. 
Firstly I decided to do a Twisted DJ.
I rotated all the blocks.
And secondly, well, that I will tell you later.

Happy stitching 
until next time
