More Progress ~ Le Marais

I finished sewing the 5 blocks I had cut out.


Please excuse the sunspot in the photo! 

I had to use some creative piecing to get those last few blocks made.


Allison suggested that I try putting these on point. Brilliant!


I have the perfect number of blocks for this setting! Thanks, Allison! I may add sashing and cornerstones yet as well as a border. I do have some French General fabrics at home though. So rather than shopping, I may just put this on hold for the time being. If I can wait that long!

Have a great day!

    I’m always surprised at how putting blocks on point seems to jazz up some quilts. This looks really nice on point! I’m not sure I can wait until you get home to see the finish of this!

  8. Thank you! I can feel myself blushing 😊 I have pinned so many of Katy’s quilts on my Pinterest boards for inspiration, it’s nice to take part in the discussions about one. Although I have a funny feeling the on point suggestion was for the star blocks…? It’s not easy to keep pace with all your projects Katy!

    Katy, I really like this quilt. I am about to start on the Deco State flower quilt that has the same type of blocks and on point setting. I have been considering trying to put it together in rows to eliminate all those triangles between the blocks. Do you think that is possible or am I asking for problems? Thank you for all your help and inspiration.
