Stitching

It's been a while since I posted but rest assured that I have been stitching.

I saw this eye fooler block on someones blog (can't remember whose) and had to try it. I didn't have a pattern. The blocks in the block are 4.5 unfinished. I figured out all the pieces and sizes. I like it alot and can tell these blocks will be addictive. Needless to say I will be making more for a quilt top.

Next up I found a bag of 7.5 X 2 inch strips. I added some cut up white on white strips. Added sashing and borders and now it's a top. This will make someone a nice comfy lap quilt. It will go in the top bin ready for quilting.

And last but not least here are all my flower garden blocks. I have been working on these in the evenings. A little progress most every night really adds up.

Keeping Busy...

So I created another top using different 2.5 X 4.5 green rectangles and a white print. Not sure if I will put a border on this one.

Out of hibernation came my hexie project. It has't seen the light day in months. I am taking a break from applique and need to have my hands busy in the evenings. We'll see how long I stick with the hexies this time.





For all you cat lovers, a sweet picture of Sebastian snoozing.

Plugging Along

I continue to clean up my sewing room, especially the piles of miscellaneous fabric. The strippy quilt is going to SC Quilts for Kids. This once was a pile of less than width of fabric strips, 2 1/2 inches wide. There are enough strips together for half of another top. These quilts will measure 36 X 48.

This pink crumb quilt is for one of Celeste grands. She was blessed with 4 new grand babies all within 2 months. 3 are tripplets. Needless to say she is helping out with the tripplets full time.




Hope everyone had a great weekend, full of stitches.

Catching Up

Over this long new years weekend I quilted these three charity quilts.

The colors are a little off in the two larger ones, so the camera must need new batteries.
