Monday Making

Quilts DO grow...but it takes time.

I have a few more bars and red cornerstones to go on this one...
I'll have to figure out if I like it the size it ends up.
Will I want to GROW IT bigger???

I love how this "just because" quilt is looking!


I am using 6 1/2" squares - cut into fourths.
(they are mostly old calicos)

The strips are 1 1/2" x 3 1/4"
(using my stash of solids- many vintage - free hand-me-downs)

The red cornerstones are 1 1/2" x 1 1/2"
(again, a vintage-like solid that I've almost used up!)


My husband's garden is also looking good!
There is always something fresh to eat.


What are YOU making this week??

Link up and share.


  1. Your quilt is looking so gorgeous...nice work. Those veggies look amazing hugs, Julierose

  2. Happy Labor Day. Very fun blocks. It has to feel good to be using up some of the older odds and ends.

  3. What a fun quilt you are creating! Love all of the fabrics and those red cornerstones make is sparkle. :)

  4. love those blocks and so many pretty veggies

  5. That looks like a GREAT use of those old fabrics. Nice work!!

  6. Pretty pattern, bright and cheerful!

  7. It is growing!!! and so is your garden!! Wow!!

  8. Seems like this one is growing quickly. Some quilts sure seem to grow faster than others. I really like this idea and may have to adapt it to use what scraps I have. No 6.5 inch scraps here but I do have 3.5 or 2.5 scraps to use that would work as well.

  9. I love the vintage feel of your project. I'm sure you'll love the finished project.
