I am hoping this is my last work in progress post on my Riley Blake Challenge quilt. I am still on target to get this done by Monday. I have one more block for the front to do – dusk, and one block for the back.
These are my blocks so far….remember this is my quilt that represents the various colors of the sun during a day. This is therefore called “A Fine Day“.
Bottom-left: Sunrise; Top-left: Midday; Top-right: Sunset.
The only thing that will stop me from finishing…..is the weather (picture is the first 20 mins of weather that just came in). North Carolina has issued a state of emergency due to snow and ice. We are expecting power outages, so no power = no sewing, no blogging. I could be hand quilting to get it done by Monday.
Linking up with Lee over @ Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday.
How fun… is that paper pieced?
Stay safe and warm okay!
I love how that quilt is looking. I’m enjoying seeing the progression.
They look awesome so far! Definitely my favorite of the challenge pieces I’ve seen so far. Hope you have a weekend with power so you can finish them up!
It look soooo pretty!!!
This looks great, and although I’m not generally an improv quilter, your blocks make me want to give it a try 🙂
Great colours! Is that deadline self-imposed? Because if not, given the weather the US has been seeing recently, surely they’ll make allowances for power outages?
Yahooo!!! It’s snowing like crazy across town at our house. I bet you guys have tons more snow now. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you keep your power; I want to see the conclusion of the Riley Blake saga. Stay warm, my friend!
Fingers crossed that you get to keep your power. The only thing I like about big winter storms is an excuse to stay in and sew… what a bummer if you didn’t even get that out of it! Stay warm and safe, and good luck on your big finish!
Beautiful blocks. What technique are you using?
Just improvisational piecing.
I love your blocks so far – but with that weather coming in you could just add a plain white block to the mix! Good luck getting it finished!
Love these! The colors are so bright and they flow so well!
Fabulous. Scrappy love.
I love it! Hope you avoid a power outage so you can still sew.
Beautiful blocks. I am down in here now very snowy south Carolina. Stay warm 🙂
Those are gorgeous! I can’t wait to see what Dusk ends up looking like. Best of luck with the weather!
Hoping you don’t lose power with that crazy weather!
Gorgeous blocks – love them!
Wow, I love those blocks. They are so bright and colorful on such a yucky day!
Love it! Hope you’re moving along quickly. We didn’t lose power, but I’ve been struggling to get off the couch. 🙂
They are gorgeous. Hands down. You could enter it into the Le Challenge for the month as well. It’d fit right in.
