The shopping is done , the house is decorated , cards are mailed out  and presents are wrapped
Time to sew Yeahhhhh!

I have decided that I would like to finish my Hampton Ridge UFO  before I start anything else .
It will feel so good to call this quilt a finish :-D

Starting to sew my rows together ...

 row 4 is so long it barely fits on my ironing board ....

This is what all of blocks looked  like when I finished making them and when the quilt is sewn together   this is the angle the blocks will be

This is the fabric that I am using for the sides and corners as I sew my blocks together .
Just love how the red sets it off so nicely . As you know red is my favorite color ;-)

Here is my 2 border fabrics ... Just gorgeous !!

 I hope this fits on my design wall ?  It is going to be 88 "x 88 "

Here is what is will look like when I am done




  1. Just gorgeous Sue! I love everything about this quilt.

  2. Looking so good! Is that an outer border of half-square triangles?

  3. Yes, those are beautiful border fabrics.
    I wish I could say things are done here for Christmas but it hasn't happened. Slow going on some things. I just today put out Christmas type quilts.

  4. Nice! I like the light background of the blocks set against the dark borders.

  5. Lovely! Nice work. Have you dried out yet?

  6. Wonderful! I love how the blocks are fenced with the same treatment before the sashing. Love it!

  7. Oh Sue, you will have a masterpiece and a wonderful heirloom when you're done! How nice to have everything done and have the time to sew!

  8. That is going to be one GORGEOUS quilt when you're done! And I can't wait to see it all together. Fabulous.
