HQAL: Capital T Quilt Quilt Update

I am excited to share this 3 weeks update with you. Since starting this Capital T Block quilt over a year ago, I hav finally finished piecing all her blocks together.  Here is where I was at our last posting.


A week of heavy snow and home bound, I really got so much accomplished. Here is where I am now with the top totally put together.


I have ordered a flat sheet in the maroon and I hope the color I choose will be a good match. I have not added the two side border pieces yet but they are cut out and ready to be attached. On that bottom left corner block, a tad to small, I will add a small extension piece and it will be fine.

Not always thrilled with my color choices as I was working with this, I am happy with how it has turned now.

Thank you for stopping in and checking on my progress. Please take a moment to visit the pages of the others in the group. There’s so beautiful hand work being done.

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

    I LOVE your colour combination here. I like the bold and crazy, it makes for such a lively quilt. Really curious to see this one of you finished.

      It was the color combo’s that really threw me while constructing this but I love the lively look now too. Thanks for the encouragement 🙂

        No problem 🙂 Sometimes it is good to step outside your comfort zone design wise

    never fails to amaze me how the same block can look sooooo different depending on fabrics used!

      I totally agree, it’s amazing what fabric choice can do to change what we see. I tend to like the solid with a not so patterned 🙂
