Progress on my Phebe quilt

P1090267

During my Easter vacation I got a lot done on my Phebequilt.  My goal was to add the Ohio star blocks.  And when I first started to add the blocks it was fast and fun.  I reached my goal.

P1090268

Next frame in progress.  I traced the triangels to freezer paper, cut rows and started to sew.

P1090281

Two rows finished, two more to be done. Not to mention  that this triangle frame is repeated once more, so I still have four rows longer than these to sew.  Plus some other frames and ohio star blocks.  Still a lot of sewing to be done on this quilt.  But I am having fun.

Saying for today:

So gorgeous. I saw a completed one at the Dallas Quilt Celebration. You are going to have a real heirloom! I'm still trying to figure out how the diamonds on the freezer paper become the sewn diamonds. lol Still a mystery to me.

Take care,

Phebe is looking great! It will be so worth all the work in the end. I paper pieced some of the borders on my version too.
