This Weeks Stitchin' & Triming

I've been working on all three Red, White & True blocks.  I'm enjoying this quilt along, so far.  I must be, since I'm working on three different sets at the same time. 

I am behind on trimming my strips on one set, but, all of my quarter square triangles are done, and trimmed.  Not bad, since I started cutting out two sets just this week.
first set

second set
third set (strips need to be trimmed to 4.5" squares)
 Sorry about the pictures.  The colors are much prettier than the camera shows.

This quilt along goes pretty fast, so, you still have time to join in.

I got up early this morning and made 2 pincushions for an exchange with my Treadle On group.  These still need to be stuffed, then I'll sew a button in the center.  I'm only exchanging one of these. 

one to keep and one to exchange

As usual, all my stitching this week has been done on my hand crank.  It even went with me to the Quilts of Valor sew-in on Tuesday, where I worked on sewing the strips for 2 sets of Red, White & True.


  1. Love your pin cushions. A great idea I might have to borrow! Have a great day Cheryl.

  2. I did not realize you were working on 3 of those - each a beauty. Cute idea for the pinnies.

  3. Your quilts will be beautiful, and so will the pin cushions. The one looks like the center is spinning!

  4. All of the QOV's look great, three at once may be the way to go. I love the pincushions.

  5. You are sewing along at high speed, Cheryl! I love all of your color choices! You will like tomorrow's directions....

  6. Love the hexie pincushions! What are you stuffing them with?

  7. I can't wait to see how all of your versions of Red, White, and True turn out! You get so much done for working on a hand crank! Wonderful!

  8. Everything is looking great, Cheryl! I love the Americana project and that wonderful green in the other.

  9. Manage et tois! Three going at one time. You are brave. Love the pincushions.

  10. I did not participate in any treadlon exchanges this year, I knew with my surgery and teaching time management would be an issue for me. Your blocks look like a lot of fun!
