Regatta progress

This weekend I made progress has been made on my Regatta quilt.  Fellow blog friend, Roseanne from Home sewn by usis having a sew along for it.  The pattern is by Daniela from Block M Quilts.

 I am using an Island Batik strip pack and white solid for mine.  I don't have all the strips sewn together yet, just one colored strip and one white strip paired up so far.



I also finished up a Jelly Roll Waves flimsy.  I hope to get it quilted before the end of January. The pattern is by Myra at Busy Hands Quilts.


 And we had fun watching the birds swarm around the feeder.  There were also lots of birds in two trees waiting there turn at the feeder.  I guess the warmer temp yesterday brought them all out of their nests.

Today's agenda is to quilt another Valentine runner and go to lunch with a friend.  What are you doing today?

  5. I'm at the exact same stage on the Regatta quilt as you are! My problem is I kinda want to change it up and make it different now that I have all the strips together! Hope you have a great lunch! A valentine runner, huh?! You are thinking ahead!

  6. I love the colors in both of your quilts. I wonder what the jelly roll waves quilt would look like in red, white and blue.

    Enjoy your lunch!

  7. Love your Regatta quilt! Those look like the perfect colors for it. Congratulations on being picked again to be an Island Batiks ambassador! I loved seeing all that you did during 2017. Hope it's warming up for you. We've had warm and dry weather, but I'm sure our turn is coming!

  9. Hi Vicki!
    Oooooh, how pretty are those batik strips?!! They look so nice and crisp next to the white. All the colors shine yet you can still see that pattern of the wave in the white fabric. I love it! I also enjoy the Jelly Roll Waves quilt. That looks like a fun and quick one! Lunch with a friend sounds wonderful and this second Valentine runner will be snapped up in seconds. I just know it!! ~smile~ Roseanne

  10. Love the colours in both your quilts. I'm thinking that the PVC piping keeps the squirrels away from the feeder? They can be such pests.
