Sunday Best Update

Yikes, this took way longer than it should have! Lots went wrong.

I'd cut four colored blocks too small and they were the pretty ones. So I cut new ones, but from the not-so-pretty leftover charms.

I'd sewn the rows together and didn't like the colors, so I just flipped the blocks around and tweaked the colors. Didn't look at the layout and it was so screwed up!!! So, took it all out and put it back together with great care to watch the pattern and to try to keep the colors pleasing.

Check it out and look for mistakes and let me know, okay?

Ugh!! It took twice as long as it should have. On to the borders.



  1. well I'd never have known that you had any issues! It looks great to me :)

  2. Thanks, maybe I should post the photo that shows my mistakes!!!! It was so obvious, but it took a photo for me to see it.

  3. I,too, think it looks great. You've got great colors and movement in the layout.
    Remember, making mistakes helps us learn! (or so I've been told) :o)

  4. Hi Gloria...Sunday Best is looking good! Can you e-mail Carrie concerning your Year of Schnibbles win? Thanks so much!

  5. I won!!! Can't believe it! Will get in touch with Carrie!!!Thank you for letting me know.

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
