Murrina - Snowball Blocks

Snowballs {Murrina | Stash Statement}

My progress on the Murrina quilt continues to be rather slow, but hopefully I can pick up the pace this week a bit and at least get the quilt top and backing ready to quilt. Wish me luck!

Murrina - Snowball Blocks

Murrina – Snowball Blocks

I have transformed all the improv blocks I shared in my last progress post into the snowball blocks that the pattern calls for. I am excited by how bright the Kona Breakers is and how all the colors are looking together so far. Now comes the fun part of arranging everything in the full quilt layout. I will probably spend some time fussing over which block goes where…

Office Setup

Office Setup

One of the many distractions I have had recently keeping me away from my sewing machine is updating my office setup. In preparation for downsizing and being more mobile, I purchased a laptop and spent the weekend archiving all my data off my desktop and setting up my laptop. Installing new programs and doing file transfer and maintenance isn’t glorious or particularly fun, but it feels good to have a fresh start.

    I think Breakers looks very promising considering what you are showing so far! I have all my blocks ready for layout too – just waiting for my background fabric to come! It’s turquoise-y too, but I made sure to stay away from Breakers! ;-)

    Hello Yvonne, What a perfect block to use improv piecing in. I look forward to seeing more of this quilt as it comes together, because you have me guessing at all of the layouts that could be done with the variety of sizes you have made. Since you are such a pro at a computer, will you come and update my lap top? Just kidding. Have a great day!

    These improv blocks look great. I really like taking a traditional block and adding a bit of improv to it. Looking forward to seeing your progress!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
