Very little Brown Sewing this week!

This week just flew by! My focus was trying to get my Cresent City Charm to the quilting stage, and it is! But before I show it to you, I will show my Brown blocks.

All I managed to get done is the 6 Pinwheel Blocks. I am so glad to have something new on the design wall. Those Cresent City blocks were up there for a l-o-n-g time!!

Here is the quilt top finally getting to the quilting machine!

I have quilted all of the embroidered blocks. I hope to get the rest of the quilt done this weekend. I am doing just a medium stipple. The embroidered blocks are quilted with a light gray King Tut thread and the rest will be with black King Tut. I love that thread and use it for most of my quilting.

Be sure to check out other Brown blocks at SoScrappy. I'm headed there now!

Enjoy your weekend!

.........Sew till next time..........

Your pinwheels are striking! The fun part about the RSC is that you only have to make a handful of blocks each week and by the end of the year you have a quilt.

6 blocks is a nice showing. Have fun quilting your quilt.

Your pinwheels look great together! I really like that block! Looks like you are making great progress on your New Orleans quilt, too. I'm very impressed with all of the embroidery you did.

Your Crescent City Charm quilt is beautiful. Great little brown blocks.

I don't believe that I would worry about ONLY making 6 of the Pinwheel Blocks this week, considering that you also got your Marti Gras quilt half quilted!!

Lots of people are making those pinwheel blocks. They look like fun.

I love embroidered quilts but never quite know how to quilt them so thanks for sharing what you do.
