That is seriously stunning! The black really sets off the colorwash. It reminds me of those scratch-off sheets that have a wash of black over a colored background and you scratch an image away revealing the color.

Thank you guys! I’m really pleased with how the pieced border came out. It was a bit of a pain, but I was glad to use so many scrap Leaders & Enders. I I had about 3/4 of what I needed, and only had to cut and piece about 30 or so more to fill in color gaps. My in laws are visiting this weekend, so I’m hoping I can get this one sandwiched while they play with Ada.

Meanwhile, I pieced a small kids quilt top during her nap today. Another unexpected Harry Potter design, made from stash. Not sure what I’m going to use for borders yet, but I’m sure I’ll find something.

Check out the cool spells and patronuses fabric!

@Magpie, I sent out two notecards of yellow squares today. (Sorry, I was out of notecards, and had to get more before I could send out!) But the mail carrier just took them away, so you should have them in a few days.

I got new rotary blades (& also fabric, there was a sale!) so I’ll be in the basement for the next few hours pressing & cutting. I did some calculations & even with sashing between 6x6 2.5" square blocks, I’ll still need over 700 squares for a twin sized quilt! La, this is why people purchase kits.

Some additional blocks for my green/brown quilt. It’s fun just making whatever block I want.

Just some trees:

I like fabric!
I’ve been sewing, at an actual sloth’s pace, lol, but I’ve been sewing! I’m going to get our camper quilt done by summer. Whatever fabric I get is going in there :wink:

I needed a easy win so I created this block to put on the pack of a jacket. Even though the attaching to the jacket didnt go the best. Still glad to have a easy win under my belt!

Ada got me sick over the weekend, so I haven’t been crafting as fast as normal, but I have managed to finish quilting the Black + Rainbow top. Hopefully tomorrow I can trim loose threads, and square it up, then start binding.

If this is your slow, then my fast is molasses in comparison :laughing:. Hope you’re feeling better!
