Hampton Ridge BOM Block 9 Finished  January 11, 2014

Block 9 Finished

For BOM Away Monday, here is Block 9 of Hampton Ridge.  I absolutely love this block.  It is now my favorite block in this BOM so far.  I may at some point make a quilt filled with this block.  

I am slowly feeling much better.  Being sick really put me out of things for a bit.  I did get through the worst part fairly quickly but I’ve been out of sorts for a few weeks at least.  Not to mention, I’m still working a lot more than normal.  But I got back into the quilting groove this weekend.  It actually started Thursday when I spent the evening hand applique-ing Raining Cats and Dogs.  Then on Friday, I snipped all the ends of the Chevrons for Celtic Solstice while watching the girl at open gym practicing her tumbling skills.  When I got home I got most of Block 9 for Hampton Ridge finished and finished it off Saturday morning.  Then I spent the rest of the day doing the first clue for Tell It To The Stars.  I probably could have done it much faster but I kept stopping to take step by step pictures.  I think they turned out pretty well.

For Design Wall Monday, the same things are on the wall with the added blocks I finished.  I rearranged things so that everything fit properly.  At some point I’ll have to get rid of something but while I have space I’ll place things wherever they fit on the wall.

With step 2 finally done and step 3 done as well I’m ready to finish the 4 patches that was step 4.  Those should be done fairly quick this coming weekend and I can get going on step 5.  I haven’t even started that step so I have no idea if that will be fast or something like step 2.  I really want to get this top done this month and it really depends on how quickly step 5 and step 6 come together.  I’ll keep you posted with how things go! 

Happy quilting everyone!

  1. Hope you are feeling all better soon. I had a whole month of that last November. You’ve done a lot of sewing – and it all looks beautiful. Look forward to seeing that Celtic Solstice.

  2. That was a really productive weekend! I love the fabric placement in your Hampton Ridge – super pretty and it just stands right out so nicely with the lighter background on the inner range. And Celtic Solstice – wow! That’s a TON of HSTs, eh? Looking fantastic!
