Getting ready for Guild next week

The last few evenings I've been laying out the pieces for this month "chunk" of the month for the guild block of the month program. I'm running short of half square triangles -- or atleast a nice variety of them so there are gaps in the layout.  I've cut a bunch more half square triangles -- should be more than enough for the last two sections as well. Hopefully I have enough variety.

This is the collection of white and red squares and half square triangles for the last two parts. I need 286 more after this month so hopefully most of that is already here.   

This year's monthly quilt is Northern Lights Sampler by Marti Michell. I like the 12" blocks better than the 16" blocks but I like the size of the quilt that you get with the larger blocks. I'm thinking I'll make more blocks of the smaller size to get the size I want. I haven't committed to that yet. So far we've had two classes. The first month we made the half wheeler star blocks and for the second month we are to make at least one of the northern lights block.

I took Celtic Solstice with me on the weekend when I went to visit Dad. Karen, Dad & I looked at several options for the last border and the consensus is either the orange or a very dark blue. I'm down to skip the final border -- the top fits the larger mattress well as it is; Orange or Navy blue. I'm leaning towards the orange with navy blue as the binding. I'll sew the guild project and community quilt together first then come back to these borders.  In looking in project boxes for some more whites, I found a couple of projects that are very close to being completed tops.  Perhaps I'll get those tops done once this month's guild work and celtic solstice are done.  Then again, maybe I'll finally get some prep work done on my applique
Linking up with Esther's WOW.


  1. Organizing is half the work! Looking forward to seeing more progress, your block here is stunning, I love the colour contrast
