Soot & Ashes - WIP

This came in the mail this afternoon.  Fabulous gifts from Jess. They'll go great with the doll quilts that I am making!  :) That variegated Gutermann looks delicious. Gotta give it a try.  Maybe some FMQ?
I am up to date with Cheri's 9 blocks.  Loving this QAL!  But the log cabin block was less of a royal pain with the finger presser.  It doesn't help my developing QB though  :(
Clay's Choice block of the Miniature Sampler SAL by Cheryl.  I am using the finger presser rather than the iron.  I find that the finger presser does not distort the seams as much and with miniatures there's not too much room for wiggling.  Besides it is always good to reduce one's carbon footprint!  Feeling righteous :)
Market bag is all sewn and tested :)  I sewed a large gusset of 6" for all those fruits, meat and groceries.

    Yay, they've arrived - enjoy.

  2. Thanks for visiting, Barbara. You've been so busy lately and so much accomplished. I love the blocks by Cheri you've done. I'm just about ready to jump in and catch up on those but I can't add anything else to my to do pile ;0)

  3. Glad to see that you are up to date on Soot & Ashes. I have been saving the directions but just haven't had time to make the blocks.

  4. I am really loving Cheryl's blocks but can't join in at the moment. Urgh!
    Your market bag looks great, strong and sturdy and ready to go.

  5. Hi BJ. Can't wait to see the finished Soot and Ashes. I like the tones of that soon to be quilt.
