Some of This, Some of That

I made another B3 quilt  - I have to keep one month ahead of my guild members. That used up 1.5 yards. Then I made 6 blocks for a friend - that used up 1/3 yard. Then I donated 4 yards to next month's Corner Pay N Take at my guild for a grand total of 5.83 yards out of my stash. That brings my total YTD to 21.29 yards out.  Not bad for the end of Week 8.

For wip progress, I quilted my crane block:
Do you see the stitching at the outer 1/4" of the border.  I'm having the dickens of a time trying to decide how to add the piping as the piping I chose has a large edge to it and I can't place it right. I'm thinking of hand basting it in place using the line of stitching to guide me. Any suggestions??

Not sure you can see the quilting.  I top stitched the trees, around the inside of the cranes and the lines denoting the ground.





Here are the blocks I made and are now on my Design Wall:









I'm linking at Judy's Patchwork Times,  Esther's WOW,  and Lyn's BOMs Away.  Go check them out.

I love that crane block - I love the red, black, and white and cranes, too. :D At our summer cabin a blue heron visits us every day and he/she is a sight to behold. Your other piece is similar to the one I called 'arrowhead' and I like the idea of the 4 patch - looks very nice indeed.

Your crane block is lovely. I can't see the quilting very well on my monitor so no help on the piping. Those last blocks are really unique. Do they have a name? Good numbers for the week.

Your crane block is beautiful. The piping - is there any way to trim it's edge to the right width?

The block with the crane focal point is wonderful! I would gladly add my 2 cents about the piping if I could see what iit is you are refering to. A photo maybe of the piping on the block?
Great job! :)

Pretty! My suggestion is to use a zipper foot to attach the piping. I love that foot for things like piping but it also works great for edge stitching. Good luck!
This block is STUNNING. I love cranes, but this is one of the best ever. Great job!
