Watermelon Scraps!

Two new Kite Tail blocks have been added to the collection.
Blocks 13 & 14.
I decided to keep them all going in the same direction, staggering to the right. I will still have a couple layout options at the end of the year, and they will join together a little easier too.

I even finished the leftover chains, and a Courthouse Baby block.
Piecing is the "sweet spot" of quilting for me. I really enjoy most everything about sewing, but nothing compares to the instant gratification of putting things together. That moment when you finger-press the last seam, flip it over, and reveal the assembled block is a simple pleasure I am addicted to.

Playing with the RSC16 watermelon theme for July was relaxing, and satisfying, and now I think I am ready to work on some Free Motion Quilting today.
After I link up with...

Enjoy the weekend!
On Tuesday, I plan to share, and catch up with progress at Cynthia's too!
Quilting is more fun than Housework

  2. I like piecing the best too...that's why I have so many different quilts in pieces! Cute Courthouse Steps. I've never made one but sure love them. The little bike in the middle adds the smile factor!

  4. Great pattern! I love the way it looks, and watermelon is an appropriate title for it. I love piecing, but I also love the quilting. Given a choice, if I had a longarm again, I'd spend more time quilting, I think.

  6. Fun to read all the comments from quilters who love piecing the most, as that is true for me also! I love those kite tail blocks, and they great in the pinks and lime green!

  7. Nice HOT PINK blocks!! Piecing is my happy place, too. The actual quilting... not so much! Although, that's better now that I finally got a longarm!!

  10. I love that watermelon color combo. While I like piecing a lot, I think my favorite part of quilting is free motion, although I don't get to do it as often as I like because that means I need to finish a flimsy first! What can I say, I'm a slow quilter.
