On the Go!

I started a new quilt today, well, yesterday, I washed, dried, and ironed the fabric, so today I started to cut, but didn't get to sew yet. There's a bunch of applique and I'm hoping to learn the Brother Scan and Cut that I bought awhile ago to cut the shapes. It's for my daughter-in-law's sister's first baby that's due in mid-July. Wish me luck in getting it done on time. 

I did sew today. I finished sewing the rows on my Pinwheels for Pop quilt and even one of the borders. It really looks great. I felt I did an excellent job on my points, just a few were off a bit and, maybe, one, should be re-done, but...well, not re-doing it. HeeHee

I used my bean bags as leaders and enders so I got quite a few done today.  

I read a blog awhile back that she explained that she belonged to a monthly fabric club to build her stash and I can't find the blog again, any one remember reading it and whose blog it was?  I'd love to get fabric every month. If only to just display it.

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…
