A little bit of everything

I finished up my ‘Shattered Triangles’ quilt. I didn’t use any pattern for this I just cut a bunch of triangles from my overflowing pink scraps and used white to square them up, then I alternated the direction of the triangles in each row. I had some left over backing from other other quilts so I pieced them together for the back of this one.

I took the finished quilt out in our backyard (11th fairway on Parkland at Myrtle Beach) and captured a few shots in full sun.

I spent the last few days sorting, folding and organizing my fat quarter stash. They were previously smushed (a technical term) in a few plastic bins and I had no idea what I had. This is an in-progress shot.

After working through all the FQs, I pulled out some of my ‘less than yard’ cuts and wrapped them around comic book boards. I thought they looked good on the top shelf so I moved the FQ bins down.

The brown tv cart in the foreground will be moving to another room soon but for now I get to work around it  :-/

And at last I started working on the commissioned memory quilt I’ve been ignoring for the last month. I hope to get this one done pretty quickly so I can just focus on some ‘fun’ sewing for a while…quite selfish of me!!

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

First official visitor

We had our first official visitor in the new house this past week and as such, I didn’t do any sewing. We took her to our favorite restaurant on the beach, Bummz – twice actually!

While she was here we went shopping for area rugs and some wall decor, here’s a few shots of what we bought. Excuse the boxes, I’m still deciding where to put stuff :-p

Kitchen wall art

I still need to find something for over the server in the dining room and I plan on putting valances on many of the windows…ugh, still so much to do!!

Before she arrived on Monday, I finished piecing the Shattered Triangles top and it’s been sitting on my design wall all week…I can’t wait to get in there later today to decide on the backing fabric and maybe even get it basted.

We’ve been experiencing an early heatwave the past few days and it looks like it’s going to hang around for a few more…a good reason to stay indoors and sew!!

I wish everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day…
