Block four completed….finally

I really like this block.  The thought that of a jazz band playing up in heaven is very cute.  This block used a lot of metalic cotton and it turned out very nice.  This block is one of the longest blocks in this quilt.  I was actually hoping to have it finieshed before the release of the next block.  Now to press it and put it in a safe place till I have finished all the other blocks.

The Kitchen Sink

I have just finished the next block in the Stitch A Long.  It’s Kitchen Sink Camel.  I like the colors in it and the use of the metalic threads brighten it up more.  I haven’t added the tassels along the reins but I will add it shortly.  Amazingly it didn’t take it too long to do this one.

SAL – block 1

Well it is finished – the first block in the Stich A Long called Long time ago in Bethleham.  I think it came up very well.  I like the back ground fabric as it works well with the colors.  I am now starting on the next wone which is called Kitchen sink camel.  I can’t wait till it is also finished as it has some very nice colors and interesting parts to it.

SAL – aka Stitch a long

Have you heard of the term SAL?  Well I hadn’t until I picked the christmas edition of Homespun.  Well while I was reading it, I found a lovely design that I liked.  So I slowly brought the fabric which was Moda Primative Gathering.  The pattern suggests white but I like the colors in Moda Primative Gathering as it looks like what the colors would be in the desert.  Then I got the cottons and cut out the first fabric and traced the pattern out and started to create the new pattern.  I’m a block behind and it is looking good.  It is called Long time ago in Bethleham but as I am sewing it I keep thinking of Bone M song.
