JC update

I've put aside my klosjes for now to work on my Joseph's Coat, which is way behind, BTW. In case you are wondering, my design wall is a slab of pink styrofoam. :o)

If I plug away at them, perhaps I just might get caught up by June with a total of 35 (there are only 14 so far .....). In the photo above, the circles are being sewn together and I have to say that it is an interesting method whereby you do not see any seams. My version will be queen size and I haven't figured out yet how many more will have to be done. A wide border will be added and perhaps I might even try a bit of scallop on the edges to mimic the petals. This beauty will be for moi! :o)

On my next update, I'm going to count up the number of different fabrics that were used. Some FQ's and a layer cake were purchased to add to the variety, but a lot of them came from my stash.

If you want to see more gorgeous versions of Joseph's Coat, go here. Lots and lots of eye candy!

Have a great day!

Thanks for visiting me and leaving your nice comment. I'm quite new at this blogging lark and I get very exited when someone leaves a comment! BTW I love our soft colours; very pretty indeed. And you've got 14 blocks made already; well done. I'm only on my third ;(

Wow! That's looking really pretty and it's in my favourite colours. Blue and yellow.

I love your colours. And 14 is 2 rows, so that is realy good! I have almost finished block 15, but because mine will be smaller that is half of the 3th row. Do you need to make it longer than 14 and a half block?

That is gorgeous -- I love the fabric colours you're using for this. It's a very tempting design.

Your "JC" is absolutely beautiful. I've never made this pattern and may have to give it a try - will put it on my "to do" list. Looks like you're making good progress -

Love your colours! You are making great progress! I've also done 14 blocks but they aren't joined up yet.

Your colours are wonderful, I love it a lot, yes I'm behind too but at about the same stage as you.

Jude said...

Rose marie you quilt so far looks stunning. It is definately a labour of love doing this quilt by hand but i think it will be worth it when we see them finished.

They're beautiful. I was so tempted to join that group, but in the end I decided to let commonsense prevail - unusual for me - and accept that I already have too many other claims on my time at the moment.

The pattern is so pretty; looks difficult. You do deserve a medal for the beautiful work you do.

Your blocks are amazing! I was studying your photo trying to figure out how this will go together...too hard for me! And you're going to make it queen size!?
Wow! I want to try to visit those links to see the other examples of this design...thanks for the link!
