Vocabulary: 'PIP' means 'Projects in Progress' which I prefer over the alien reference more commonly used. :-)
I was otherwise occupied when Randy posted the 'Milky Way' block as a bonus on April 12th, but here it is:
I finished that one plus the three posted on the Third Wednesday of April last week when I had a little sewing time in between other commitments.
Sow, what do you think of my version of blocks 16, 17 & 18?
|Clockwise from left are Dutchman's Puzzle, |
Hooker's Hat Patch*, and Sawtooth Star
(*from Carol Hopkins' 'Civil War Legacies')
Of course, I could not leave out the bonus block posted on April 18th . . .
Since the beginning of February Randy has posted 18 official blocks on the first and third Wednesdays of each month. Add to that the 6 bonus blocks offered and I have been able to complete the third column of my quilt top.
I create the partial blocks as fillers from either duplicate blocks included in the challenge or elements from the blocks made up into half-blocks to complete what will be the even numbered columns.
I have just read her blog post for today (April 25) and learned there is an additional bonus block for me to sew which will give me 3 of the 8 blocks I need for my 4th column. Yippee!
