Getting work done

 Sunday I picked up my mom and brought her to my house to sit in my garden in the morning while it was cool. We went out for lunch and I brought her home. By the afternoon I could not find the energy to work on my quilts. All the bobbins had the wrong color threads. Just one of those days. Rather than waste the rest of the day, I pulled out a bag of 2 inch squares. There are thousands of them that someone had cut on a die cutter. Perfect "no brainer" project, I thought so I started putting squares together to start a postage stamp quilt. Found out the squares were not so square but muddled thru it and emptied 2 bobbins. 100 squares made a finish 15 inch block. Turned out OK. Not my fabric choices but once I get more blocks done, will make a nice donation quilt for the teen center.


The rest of Monday and today I worked on the king size duvet. Zipper is sewn in and tomorrow hope to finish that job. It weighs a ton, made of upholstery sofa grade fabric. Not fun!

Got allot done but nothing on my quilts, not the Civil War BOW or the 1880s sampler. I want so much to start cutting into the pink and brown fabrics that Cheryl sent. Carol, neverhaveenuffabric is also doing the sampler and posted all the blocks that she has done in some of the same fabrics, the Julie Hendrickson collection. They are gorgeous!!! You should check them out on the flicker site: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1880samplerpics. Magpiememories has also posted her blocks there and is making her quilt in pink and browns with some neutrals. Equally gorgeous and her blocks are what inspired me to switch to the same colors. Imitation is a form of flattery! Yes indeed... Now to find the time and energy to work on my blocks!!!


  1. You have been busy!! No wonder you haven't had time for your own projects. Hopefully, soon.

  2. Oh my, you have gotten so much done! I feel tired just seeing it all. Well, maybe today you can work on your civil war block.

  3. Lovely quilts --- and so many! Wow!
