Just Takes 2™ Quilt – September 15 Blocks


Are you getting into the swing of Fall? The weather sure has cooled off here at the cottage and I can see leaves beginning to change colors. It's always a beautiful but kind of sad time for Clutch and I because we know our days here are numbered now for the season. I do enjoy all the beautiful colors and with three easy Just Takes 2 blocks this time you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the changing season too.

Three darling blocks! A little applique, a little machine piecing and a little foundation piecing.

Block 69


Block 70


Block 71


Clutch and I are off to a little town just south of here called Interlochen. It's where the Interlochen Center for the Arts that I talk about so often is located. We're going to the town's Avenue of the Arts taking place today. There's also a car and motorcycle show for the guys and a pretty cute quilt shop in town too. It's called Interquilten. I'm sure I'll be making a stop there too.

Doris sent me a pictures of two of the three Sally Post Floral Sampler quilts she's made. Aren't they beautiful! Way to go Doris, your children are very lucky to have such beautiful quilts. I'm adding the pictures to the Photo Gallery. If you've made quilts or blocks from any of my patterns please send me a photo. I'd love to add it to the gallery.

    Hi Gay, I just wanted to thank you for this quilt along. I’m still working on it, but am way behind. I try and get at least one block a week finished, working in between my other projects.

    Awhile back I ordered the Jacobean style embroidery quilt top. I just found the perfect ivory linen to use! I’ve also been thinking about plotting out the entire quilt whole, and not cutting up the linen. It would probably last longer that way. What do you think?

    Thanks again!

    Holly, I’m so glad you’re enjoying the quilt. It’s a big project but will be worth it in the end. Just when you think you can’t go on you get to put a section together and it inspires you to continue.
    I think plotting out your Old English quilt is a great idea. I’ve done that with applique crib quilts like Just For Baby and it’s a great technique. I love the idea using linen for your background. It’s going to be stunning. I hope you’ll send me a picture when you’ve got a few blocks done. I’d love to see your progress.
