Wedding Quilt Number Four On Deck

I have begun the next round of wedding quilts.  I have three to make for weddings next year.  The first wedding is in February so I need to get my butt in gear and get that top made!  I am going to make another Round and Round out of, wait for it...purple, gray and white!  Are you shocked?  Ne neither.  I had some time while the turkey extravaganza was going on so thought I would try to get it all cut out.  I got all of the white cut out on Saturday. I did manage to choose all of the purples and grays but I am still waiting on fabric from each of the moms.    Here are all my squares all cut and ready to make into HST.

I love including Sebastian in these gray quilts.  I even cut into my precious owls.  I feel like this is a good selection of purples and grays.  The bride wanted it to read more purple with an accent of gray.  I hope I am achieving this, but only time will tell.

I managed to get the first HST for the "circle of stars", block 1 sewn.  Next up is the trimming.  I found my Bloc Loc ruler and went to town.  If you don't own one of these rulers you should!  There is a channel running diagonally down the center and when you put it on your sewn line it "locs" into place.  Voille! No ruler slipage.

One set of 32 HST are sewn, trimmed and ready to make into the first block!
Only 210 more HST to go!!
Thank goodness for Bloc Loc and my turning mat from Olfa!!

Most likely I won't be blogging again until after Thanksgiving, but I will be on Instagram.
If you would like to keep up, please find me @mamaspark59 over there.

To all my American friends, have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Sorry for my spelling mistake - I'll try again -

I'll be watching to see what these colours turn into.

Happy Thanksgiving to you from England :)

I had a chance to see that ruler in action last week - on my list to buy along with the Round and Round pattern and some pretty gray fabrics. You are costing me money girl!! Happy Thanksgiving to your family as well. Gobble till you Wobble!!!!

I really love my Bias Square from That Patchwork Place but I have heard great things about Bloc Loc. Love the colours in this wedding quilt.

great selection of fabrics, I bought the loc bloc earlier this year and it makes trimming the HSTs so much quicker and more accurate
