Quilter's Garden - Quilts on a Line Blocks Completed

I was in a groove last night after work.  I got home, baked cookies, cooked dinner, and then finished up these cuties!  Here's the clothesline block for the Quilter's Garden QAL.  This one needed the applique sewn down and the clothesline put on.

Quilter's Garden - Clothesline Block 

I'll be keeping the clothesline block.  All of the mini quilts are made of bonus HST's from other projects, trimmed to 1" prior to putting into pinwheels.  Everything except the white background fabrics came out of my scrap boxes.  Next up is the first of the tree blocks.  Again, it still needed the applique sewn down.  I'll be keeping this one too.

Quilter's Garden - First Tree Block 

Here's the second of the tree blocks.  Again, just sewed down the applique last night.  I'll be swapping this one.

Quilter's Garden - Second Tree Block 

Here are the three together to give you an idea of what the row will look like.  Once they are sewn together, a clothesline will be added to attach from the tree to whatever is in the block next to it.

Quilter's Garden - Quilts on a Line 

I have one more block to complete.  It's cut out and I've started sewing it so I should be able to finish it tonight.  It's a rail fence block and is too cute!  

Just a reminder that the linky party for our leader/ender projects is open.  Come link up and join the fun!

Also, it's not to late to join in our Not So Last Minute Christmas Quilt Along!  It's one block a month and started in January so plenty of time to catch up.  Link ups for March will start on March 31.
