Slow Progress: Center Light, Red & Green

I've been hand quilting Center Light this week.  I deliberated for a while what to do about the corners of the blocks.  I'll show a close-up later.
My  intention is to finish this quilt by the end of September, my goal for the 3rd quarter 2013 Finish-A-Long with Leanne at She Can Quilt.  I think I'll have to work furiously to finish it, but it's just the impetus I need.  Only the center is quilted now.  Earlier today I thought I should keep a tally of how many squares are finished and how many are yet to be quilted.  I might feel like I was making more progress.

I've also been making blocks for Red & Green.  I'm still playing....  I may decide there's too much variety or too great a color variation -- or not.  We'll see.
I seem to be stuck in the 5" square mode.  These are not very large blocks and it will take me forever to finish this quilt.  One of my intentions was that I would be able to stitch the circles in the car or away from home when I couldn't be sewing on the machine.  But the circles keep drawing me to them and I have to push myself to sit at the sewing machine to stitch the 4-patches.  The circles and 4-patches are just about even in number right now.

Thanks so much, ladies!



  1. Your red/green quilt is amazing. The colours just pop and the pattern is so modern, so fun.

    1. Thank you, wombatquilts. I like the colors, too, and though I wasn't necessarily going for modern, I agree that it has a modern look to it. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

  2. These are both great projects. It's nice to be able to enjoy the journey with you.

  3. These are both really nice!!

  4. Great projects for this next quarter. I think you're really smart to get going on the holiday red/green quilt early. They always fall to the side once the holiday season heats up, don't they?
