Another Mission (Almost) Accomplished!

I've slowly but surely been chipping away on my checkerboard blocks for the ThimbleCreek mystery quilt.
Once the units on the left are sewn, all 500 four patches will be finished--yay!
Of course, then the pressing begins.....
These will measure 1.5" when finished. 

At least my November UFO is finished!
It's quilted with an edge to edge design:
 Feather Feather using So Fine color 425. 

I had a nice big chunk of an old Thimbleberries print that I used on the back.
 It was nice not to have to do so much piecing for the backing. 

I think the Lozenges resemble a carpet of leaves and will make a nice autumn throw.
It feels so good to have another finished project--one more to go for 2015!

What ever plans you have for Thanksgiving, I hope you have a wonderful day and don't forget to count your blessings!
Linking with A Lovely Year of Finishes HERE


  1. Good work on all those 4 patches. Your lozenge quilt is gorgeous! It does look like a blanket of beautiful fall leaves. Happy Autumn. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. All of those 4-patches look mind-numbing. Good for you plowing through them!
    Your Autumn throw looks so cozy. Congrats on the finish!

  3. I like the way you unified your scrappy lozenge quilt by alternating the black & white corners - instead of having them scrappy too - a great project! Can't wait to see what you do with all your 4-patches - that's a LOT of them!

  4. Your lozenges quilt is gorgeous! Beautiful for fall! Good luck with all of those 4 patches!

  5. Your color choices for your lozenger quilt is totally fall. How nice to have that UFO done and now ready to use. Keep plugging away on the four patches.

  6. Beautiful Lozenges--love the autumn color theme; mine are ready to sew together..."Jouzai" because that's Japanese for lozenge . I have many more yellows and reds than green, blue and mauve--so setting will be a challenge--OR I may make smaller pieces--slowing down before the Holiday here....last trip to grocery this afternoon (!! ) hugs and Happiest of Holidays Julierose

  7. I'm just loving your lozenges quilt! Well done!
