Lucinda's Gift q.a. week 2

Yesterday started the second sewing week of the Lucinda's Gift quilt-along on the SBS & Other Elm Creek Quilts yahoo group. Since I won't be able to play with Bernie this week, but had some time on my hands yesterday, I put the pedal to the metal and stitched a load of (i.e. 16) chimneys and cornerstones blocks - see, all my blocks laid out together



This will be such a fun quilt! And I have enjoyed re-visiting some scraps I had forgotten about completely, and some scraps from quilts that are dear to my heart. Next is a week of stitching border blocks - they are a variation of the chimneys and cornerstones, but the sewing is a touch different - looking forward to that :-)

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!
Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida

Oh Anne, those blocks are really coming together. I love the secondary design in the lighter colors and the red stepping stones. Great job.

... and that yellowy-green? I'll bet you were wondering how that would work out -- to me, besides the red stepping stones, it's adding the zing. 8-) I am always amazed when the 'odd' fabric steals the show.
