A little bit side-tracked

I can't believe that it is Wednesday already. I actually spent a lot of the day Sunday working on my black, green, and white quilt, and intended to post about it Monday when I got home from school. But then I had to cook dinner for Park Ranger Boyfriend who came to visit and so things got pushed back until today.

I didn't get any stitching done on the binding of my mystery quilt (rats!) but hopefully I can start on that tonight while I watch some TV.

When last I posted, I had just paired up all of the sets of three squares for the 9 patch part of my courthouse steps. They now have all of their "steps" completed, except for the last "rung" of the black for most of the blocks. Here are all 18 chillin' on my living room floor with the first set of rungs:

I had to stop because I didn't have enough black fabric to finish them entirely. Whoops. But I started on this anyways because I was so excited but I did get the rest of the black fabric in the mail today!

Here are the two courthouse steps blocks that are completely finished:

The other blocks for this quilt are swirly star blocks that you make by a (what I would describe as a) stack, cut, and swap method.  Here are the three that I have done:

Kind of wild! But I definitely like it. I also got the charm pack that I won from Marcia today in the mail! It is so pretty!

I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced to share my progress!


  1. I love the colors you are using. All looks great!

  2. Can't wait to see these put together. Love the colors. You amaze me. How do you get so much done?

  3. I love that color combination...I have some of black, white and green also to make a purse/tote.

  4. I love the color combo you used. Can't wait to see the finished quilt :)
