Carolina Chain

090615    (1024x1018)Carolina Chain is now a finished quilt.  There are so many things that I like about this quilt – the layout where the darker blocks in the center shade out to light at the edges, the gray & white strip binding, the texture added by the Baptist Fans quilting motif and the way the blue & cream variegated thread blends so well with the blocks.

To celebrate the completion of Carolina Chain I fused the applique pieces on two more Happy Halloween blocks.  I need to keep working on this project so that it doesn’t end up as a UFO.  Here is a picture of the four blocks with the two new ones on the bottom.

090615A  (775x1024)Dracula is the only block with all the machine applique added.  My plan is to do the machine applique once all 12 blocks are ready.  I doubt that it will be completed this year, but it should be hanging for Halloween 2016.

      Is your bucket list like mine? – longer than my UFO list! It was a great block to use up scraps, but still have a fun time with the layout.
