In November, Bella of Then and Again Quilts started a Sew Along making a Capital T block each month for 12 months! This month Bella had to withdraw her project and her Blog due to health issues. I decided to continue on and make 12 Capital T’s using her first block for November.
Today I had completed 12 blocks (they are quite easy compared to some of my last projects) but now I realize I need to make 4 more in order to have my quilt square. Below is a picture of the 12 blocks that I have completed. I am hoping to finish this project by tomorrow! ANY BETS ON THAT ONE? It is a possibility since things have been so peaceful and quiet (other than some idiot who was able to somehow steal my credit card number – but all is taken care of).
I have figured out a way to make the flying geese quicker using Eleanor Burns ruler only to trim the geese! We shall see if I can meet my goal! I will use a 3″ white sashing and then a 2″ red border to frame it and maybe continue on with white. Not sure at this time. Will see how it works out! It is looking like I will close the week out with this top finished and my Heart Quilt loaded and quilted in the longarm!
Have a great evening and I do believe I am ready for the weather to become more stable! Life is now “the sameness of routine” and I am loving it!

I know I am going to love this quilt! Red and white quilts are so classic!
I thought that I would set it on point – then I pondered some on that one and realized with just 4 more (and they go fast) I could have a better lap quilt! I do love this Moda Marble Mate it after it is all used up there will be no more – sniff sniff! Hugs
Hurrah for a quiet week, and that quilt will just be stunning!
I haven’t started making my “T” s yet
as I need/want so input from my granddaughter (Taylor for whom the quilt is for)
Her favorite color is aqua so my thought is many aqua fabrics
I really like the way the red looks so perhaps if I used one teal/aqua fabric rather than many different fabrics that are teal/aqua
So I have choices to be made
Good luck and you will enjoy the process no matter what colors you use!
You’ve inspired me! The Capital T – using all the same blocks looks fabulous and I am glad you will be squaring it up too. I am working on completing with all 4 designs. Looking at yours has given me the format, 4 of all 4 🙂 I love the clean classic look of yours and am finding mine seems so busy but I will soldier on. Keep the pics coming ~ Sharon
Great Sharon! Yes, I thought about doing the different versions in the quilt, but decided I wanted a repeat of the first one I made! Thank you for the nice comments! Bella will be happy that we have continued on! Hugs
Hi Nanette! These blocks are sure pretty – I love the fabrics you chose to highlight red and white. The red really has a depth to it that pulls you in and allows you to see the T so easily. I can’t wait to see this as a quilt top! ~smile~ Roseanne
Thank you Roseanne! It is my favorite fabric and only about 5 more yards left! But that will be used in another project someday! Hugs
