1718 to go...

(Block 31)

The 1718 Coverlet Sew Along certainly was well timed for my life. It turns out that these little blocks travel well. I sew the patchwork blocks when I am home, but the applique blocks can be prepped and packed up in a neat little box.

I put 5 or 6 block backgrounds with their applique pieces in the box, needles, threads, thimbles, pins, tweezers, marking pencil, scissors, and a seam ripper.

Because the freezer paper is already cut out and adhered to the fabric, all I have to do is trim away all but the seam allowance, pin them in place, and stitch. This is perfect for waiting for appointments, sitting at sporting events, and waiting in carpool pickup. A few stitches here and there add up quickly!

I should have more to share soon!


  1. Good idea! If I ever finish my wool hexagons, I am going to do this!

  2. Such a great idea, this is going to be a masterpiece quilt!

  3. It's always good to have a project ready to go, and will make this one fly by in a whirl of social outings.

  4. It's really nice to have smaller blocks to work with on the go. This one looks perfect.:)

  5. I love take along projects - this one is going to be fun to make and wonderful when done

  6. We do try and make the most of every spare minute don't we?
