More on the Pick Up Sticks

     I'm very excited to share progress on the pick up sticks quilt.  This is a group project of the small modern group I belong to.  The blocks are really lively with their criss crossing bright colours.  Some of the group members dye their own fabric and those blocks are particularly lovely.


     I'm not sure how many different  members  blocks I have here.  There are 10 of us in the group.  Everyone made several blocks and handed them in to Cheryl who is making another version of the quilt without sashing.  I got the left over blocks and asked for a few more to be made.  The quilt needs one more row.  I'll be sashing it and bordering it in the lovely caribbean blue fabric that I've put up on the design wall  to give you the effect.

     Both quilts will be donated to the guild's comfort quilt program which you can read  about in the tab above.  I'm hoping to have this top pieced by the next Guild meeting, which is the second tuesday of December. Our group will be making a presentation at that meeting. For now I'm linking this post up to Main Crush Monday which is hosted by Beth at Cooking Up Quilts.  You can join me and see what other projects, quilters are excited about this week.  I'm also linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.

     I keep forgetting to link up to Fibre of All Sorts for the monthly goals...but I'm on time for December so I'm going to link up finishing this quilt as my December goal.

  1. I love the bright, vibrant colors and think the caribbean blue will be a fun sashing for the quilt top. Will someone else be finishing up the quilt?

  2. A pick up sticks quilt is on my to do list. I love the colors and grays of your block. With the bleu saching it will be a beautiful top. I will come back to see it finished.

  6. These blocks are really lively and pretty. I scrolled back a few posts, and it looks like we have similar tastes in quilts.

  7. This looks great. Lots of fun colors and I like the variety of greys in the blocks. The blue sashing will add some good drama to it. Good luck on your finish!
