I've Been Working on the Railroad

I could use a crew to build this Short Line Railroad
Are YOU available???? 
:-). 
 
I am definitely having fun working on this railroad. 
This is my first experience with Moda Honey Buns (1.5" strips). 
I'm glad I have two more planned Honey Bun projects, as I've really enjoyed myself. 
I think Moda has discontinued Honey Buns; much to my chagrin.  :-)

It's time to make more little soldiers.  :-)
 
I hope you're enjoying lots and lots of pieceful days!
 
I'll be back to share more progress soon.
I do appreciate your visits and comments.
 
In Friendship!

I've started (and not finished) a honeybun project from a Miss Rosie pattern called Ashcombe and I have the honeybuns and pattern for Times Four - another Miss Rosie pattern. I also planned to make the quilt on the cover of American Patchwork and Quilting that Carrie Nelson shows on the latest blog. I'm with you - honeybuns are great but there aren't many around.

Carol said...

Oh Darlene that is so darn cute! I'm available as soon as I get back from the kids on Sunday...I'll be right out!

I have two honey ins in my stash with fabric to match. It's like holding on to gold now that they aren't available anymore. Maybe they should reconsider if you start a riot! Lol! It's good to see you working....I mean, having fun piecing!

Debby said...

Sew cute!!

Cheryl said...

Very cute. I have never worked with honey buns.

Aunt 'Reen said...

Your railroad quilt is looking fabulous! This is going to be such a terrific quilt!

Vicky said...

Totally adorable! I have a few Honey Buns but I can see now that I should have stocked up!!

Yvette said...

Now that is so cute and fun! I have a couple of Honey Bins for a project in my UFO list. I guess I better move that one up.

Carrie said...

Very, very cute! I love it!

Honey Honey! Wasn't that a song? :)

You know... I think you should make one of these for everybody who leaves a comment...

I love the looks of this one!

I loved HoneyBuns. Especially in the Bella Solids.

BRING THEM BACK!!

Nanette Merrill said...

Well you are doing a great job. I don't think you need help. I haven't used the honey buns yet. I likey.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Wow! You have been busy! I love your top~ it is going to be so fun! They stopped making Honey Buns?! But i haven't bought any yet! Uh-oh. ;-)

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

I like it!! That block style is on my "to do" list. Sigh. I need to win Lotto or PowerBall so that I can focus on sewing. 25 more years and I can retire. HA!

Kindred Quilts said...

I'm lovin' those bright fabrics making the zigzags in this quilt Darlene!!!

Kaaren said...

Very, very pretty.

I never had the occasion to sew with a honeybun so I guess I don't know what I'm missing, huh?

Nancy said...

Thats beautiful too. I love both this one and your trip quilt. I wonder if I have any honey buns - hmmmmmmmmm

Jeanna said...

It's looking great Darlene. I've never used a honey bun before but it's too bad they're discontinuing them. I've found many cute quilts to make with pre-cuts.

Can't wait to see how you finish this one.

Mary Kunna said...

Love the railroad and the colors. Can't wait to see it completed.

Wendy said...

That's fun, I'm available when I finish helping my daughter with her move but I'll wait until it not so hot!

PugMom said...

What a great pattern! Just a rail fence set on point? Love how graphic and modern it looks this way.

Quilter Kathy said...

This is gorgeous!
Now I am humming "I've been workin on the railroad, all the live long days...." LOL

Grit said...

Oh this looks amazing.

QuiltNut Creations said...

Loving this Darlene!

Karen said...

I love this quilt!! So bright and happy. Has anyone mentioned problems leaving a comment from an IPad? I can't seem to leave a comment.

Deanna said...

Darling! I have wanted to build a chevron quilt in a similar fashion. Your scrappy-happy version is inspiring.

Josie said...

Wow!! I need to build a railroad! That is one lovely project and so is the postage stamp. I can feel the lure of the sewing machine.... you've got me all giddy :o))

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Wow! That is stunning! I cannot wait to see wherebthatbrailroad takes you!

AnnieO said...

Great railroad :)
I've seen HoneyBuns still being sold around different websites, but my 1.5" bin is pretty full too. This is a great pattern for using those up in a wonderful design!

Love your quilt
