It’s been a while since I’ve done a Quilts-on-the-Go (QotG) check in, so I suppose now is as good a time as any. At the moment, I only have three quilts in the works, and one of those is my Leader/Ender project, so it doesn’t really count.
Let’s check them out.
1 LITTLE WISHES
No pictures for this one, since it hasn’t changed since the last time I talked about it. It was my previous L/E project – I made a pile of scrappy nine patches which will now be turned into the centre of star blocks. I have to make a pile of geese for those star points. Everything is cut and ready to go, I just have to find some time to devote to working on it
2 RAINBOW SCRAP CHALLENGE
You may have noticed that I didn’t post a block for September, and I haven’t said anything about October. Well it turns out that both months were repeats of previous colours – just lighter versions. Since I didn’t get picky about light vs dark in my previous blocks, that wasn’t going to work with my vision. The months of November and December were pre-determined, as follows:
- November – brown and black or block assembly
- December – multicolor or quilting
So… I decided to lay out the blocks I had, and figure out what to do. As you may recall, I was laying them out on point. And I figured if I added just two more blocks, I could get a nice design. But what colours?
In the end, I decided to go with brown and grey.
I got the brown one done in an evening earlier this week. Hopefully as you’re reading this, I’m working on the grey one, and maybe even assembling the top!
3 LEADER ENDER
I snowballed little rectangles like mad and managed to pair them all up.
And now I’m in the process of pairing all those pairs.
And once that’s done, I’ll pair again, giving me the full block. I have no idea how many I’ll end up with, because I have not been counting my rectangles at all. I’ll see how many blocks I get, and then decide if I need to make more.
And, with only three projects on the go, I technically have three project boxes open. But I’m going to see if I can get just one more top complete before I start anything new.

That brown block is stunning! I never think that I have a lot of brown scraps since I never remember purposely buying it but I always have plenty when I go looking for it.
The brown block turned out great! I love the little fox in the pinwheel center. I was thinking “brown – blah” until I scrolled on down and saw the photo. That is going to be an awesome quilt.
And I’m proud of myself when I get one chore done on a weekend, and there you are, with your projects…
That carpenter block is stunning!!! Nice to get some quilting in even if only in spurts.
