this fun little pile came from making 2 bee blocks for a group that i am in. gotta love making hst.
i hope that she likes her blocks as much as i do.
i also made some burp clothes for some new baby's that were born in the past few weeks. my cousins were each expecting & they had their daughters just a little over 4 hours apart. just enough time that they don't share the same birthday.
i worked on my 3rd H2H quilt & got the top done. its a simple top that didn't take long at all. i ended up cutting out some of the castles and appliqued them to a solid green block. just a touch of whimsy for the center of the quilt.
now i need to figure out the backing and get it quilted and bound.
i also finished the last blocks for my Opening Day quilt. now i just need to lay it all out & get the top sewin together.
i have another friend expecting a baby girl soon & she is doing brown, orange & pink. i found this great print when i was in Boise a few weeks back.
i am pairing it up with 4 patches of brown & orange as well as a few with pink in them as well. she was very specific 'not to much pink.'
i have also started to hack up this stack of fabric. i picked this up in Boise as well. i am a huge fan of Sweetwater & i love their Countdown To Christmas line.
i am doing Rachel's quilt along over at ps i quilt. so far we have just been told to cut but i am looking forward to the end result.
that has been my progress this past week. i am looking forward to a weekend of sewing again. i need to prep my fabric for Sisters which is 2 weeks away. i can't believe it is that close. i am sort of freaking out wondering where this year has gone.
i have also had a few doctor appointments this past week. today will be my 4th one. lots of windshield time. i have issues with my health & when i was in Boise something new developed & so 3 docs & 4 appointments later we might have a solution to this new development. my whole health thing can become overwhelming if i let it. so i stay busy sewing a lot so i don't really think about it.
i hope that you are making progress on whatever you are working on. i have read a lot on blogs that people slow down in the warmer weather & don't sew as much. not me. i hate the heat so i live in my basement during the summer months & sew to my hearts content.
