On and off

I spent a little time in my sewing room last week but it was scattered. I have my scraps sorted into bins by color and I got started by pulling the ones that were over-flowing and I just kept going. I started cutting 5″ squares last time I posted and I kept that up…by the time I had gone through all my bins I had this stack almost 8″ high!

Now that I’ve done all that cutting I need to decide on a few ‘charm’ patterns to make! Lucky enough, Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is running a series on her blog this month with those kinds of patterns!

I also got my Chandelier quilt top pieced…I sewed the diagonal rows together a few each night and now it’s done!

I’m still trying to decide what I want to use for the back – I grabbed some fabrics on clearance from Connecting Threads a couple of weeks ago, one of these just might do the trick

I have 6 blocks leftover from the front that I’m going to work into the back as well, my plan is to get that done today [fingers crossed!]

I officially changed my WW plan to Online only last week and I’m actually relieved. I think the stress of attending a workshop I didn’t really like was making me eat more! Haha!! And now that Officials are recommending we we stay away from large crowds (Coronavirus!) it makes even more sense.

I’m sure you’ve heard about the horrible tornado that hit middle Tennessee last week. If you’d like to help out you can get more details here

I’ve got 4 lap quilts I’ve finished over the last couple of months just waiting for a home so I’ll be sending them off next week.

And hopefully you remembered to change your clocks last night/this morning:

That’s all for now…have a great rest of your weekend!!

  1. Thanks for posting the link for quilts for TN, that was such a disaster, so sad. I love your fabrics and your stack of 5 inch squares is impressive! I know that was a lot of time with the rotary blade and ruler!

    1. Thanks Tierney! I took a little time each night to cut that stack so it wasn’t too much wear & tear on my cutting hand :-p Now I just need to decide what patterns I’m going to make…sometimes that’s the hardest part!
