Scrappy Blocks

Has it been a week already. Work has tired me out and not much sewing going on, I haven't even touched my stitchery....the next couple of days are quiet so I hope I get some energy back. I did do some (very little) sewing before work, got these blocks finished.  It's taken me a long time (months) to finally settle on this layout, I like how it's starting to come together, there are 35 of these blocks. I hope to have a completed top.....soon.....wish me luck.

Happy Quilting and don't forget today is "shop your local quilt store day".

Simple Quilt

I've been doing a little bit of this and that. I love my little Lori Smith applique block. There will be one of these each month from Lori's Quilt least that's the plan today.....we'll see how it goes. This one is the 12" block pattern #10.
This very simple lap size quilt I've been sewing a bit at a time over the last few months. I like this one because of the soft colours of pinks, blues, reds and grey. The blocks look simple but I think there was 5 different blocks to make with changes in placement of fabrics. It should have been easy.....right.....well that's what it would appear until I made a few cutting mistakes....Thankfully I recovered and the top is finished.

A friend has named this one the "Romantic" quilt, I might call it "Simply Romantic".

And then there is a little redwork mixed in, I'm hooked on these Sunbonnet Sue blocks.
I also finished quilting and binding this K Fassett quilt, just need to get some pictures. That's it for now.

Happy Quilting.

Hearts Galore

It's been a relaxing uneventful week. I started working on this heart table runner. Feb is not far off and that means Valentines. I love it when the reds, pinks and hearts come out this time of year or maybe I'm a little early.  In any case as least I'll be ready for Feb.

Not the greatest picture but you get the idea. The pattern is called Hearts Galore on this site. I'm going to add a stripe binding, should look sweet. I've started a little quilt with red and gingham pinwheels, I hope to have that finished soon.

Happy Quilting!
