Anniversary Quilt 2020 Month 2 from Humble Quilts

It's been a bit over a month, and although many have set this quilt aside for now, I'm plugging along. Still only one block sewn, but more blocks ready, including this one!

Bet you could hardly tell the backing was 6 pieces!! Yep! It's how I roll.

Sometimes how I roll works, and sometimes it doesn't. I have no idea at all how this piece got so small!! I did a do-over on this piece.

Anybody else want to share your Anniversary quilt section? I'd love to add what you've got done to the ...

Anniversary Quilt update from Humble Quilts

Block #2 is not sewn but ready to start. 

This seems to be the best method to find what fabric I want to use. HeeHee Good thing I can leave that for a few days. 

Wide open desert spaces! Keeps me sane.

If my daughter doesn't get any financial aid soon(like disaster unemployment) it is likely she will need to store all of her apt in a storage unit and stay with us till this thing blows over. 
I've been encouraging her to stay the course and not come home because we are exposed to many people ...

Buhl Bushong Quilt from Humble Quilts

 The lighting in my sewing room isn't very good but here are my blocks so far. There are 16 total, YAY! Half way! The corners also have applique but will not do those until I start assembling the these blocks.

Anniversary Quilt 2020 update:
How do you all feel about continuing this quilt? There are many  quiltalongs going on, which I encourage you to do while we cannot be together in real life. Because ours was going to be spread out it isn't really a communal sewalong.  Someone already told me they'd like to set theirs aside ...

Anniversary Quilt 2020 Quiltalong- Let's Get Started! from Humble Quilts

This is your upcoming assignment. I hope you've started getting your background cut/pieced and patterns traced.  
Get the top section pieced and angel appliqued, if you plan on adding the angel. When tracing the pattern I was surprised at how HUGE she was! 

 Mine is fused, but not appliqued yet. 
Get one 30" block appliqued. This is a lot of work, so I'm planning on a little more than 1 month to complete this. I need to do a final press on my fusible, then start the applique.

Together Again February from Humble Quilts

 I have my top section pieced
And have my lower 4 blocks ready for applique. I had to piece a couple of them too. 

I'm going to start by adding the angel on the top section, then start pulling fabric for one of the blocks. I am really considering buttonhole stitch in black! (by machine) 

Have you gotten any fabric pulled yet?
PS, When I pulled out the angel pattern I was surprised at how HUGE it was! It doesn't look that large on the quilt.

There has been some talk about the difficulty of finding the book ...

Anniversary Quilt 2020 Quiltalong from Humble Quilts

Here's our 2020 Humble quilts quiltalong! It's called Anniversary Quilt designed by Linda Brannock and Jan Patek. It's an oldie, but it seems many of us have the book and a few are still on the hunt!

Here is a single block that's in the book that I made several years ago.

The block is a variation of a whig rose- primitive style and Barbara Brackman has a bit to say about that block, if you are interested go HERE.

We'll start off slow, just choosing fabric for the center background.
I'm not planning ...
