Update: Oops, I put the 25th in the title when I wrote this late last night. It is the 22nd, but I’ll leave the title alone as some have already linked to it. Maybe I am in a hurry to get to spring.
Good Morning Quilters!
I felt like I made progress this week. Here is another finished May Day Basket block:
I have another one ready to start, and shall work on it this afternoon. I also made more Drunkards Path squares, enough for another block, and worked on sewing together some of the rows of the brown and white Wedding Ring quilt that was on the design wall. No picture of the design wall as it looks as brown and white as it did last week. lol
The UFOs got restudied again, and I put some of them in the sewing room closet. So now all the batting, backings, projects, etc. have been looked at, sorted, organized, and have a home. They are either in the shelving in the basement, or in the sewing room closet. I was surprised at how many small quilts I have that just need quilting and binding. I may have a small quilt/doll quilt week soon, and get them finished.
One of the projects I started to put away called me to work on it. It's a log cabin quilt. Now, I live in a log cabin all summer.....you would think that I would have made a log cabin quilt! But I have not. What I had was a large box of scrap strips and some notes and two blocks made. So this past week, I've had fun putting more blocks together. I now have eight blocks, and here is a picture. It looks like I was sewing dark strips where light ones should be on the center block, but it's all good. I think about anything goes in a scrappy log cabin quilt.
So the log cabin project got sorted into two smaller bins of darks and one bin of lights. For the present time, all three small bins are under the ironing board, right near my machine to remind me to make a block or two whenever they call me. And making these blocks helps break up the brown and white sewing I've been doing lately.
March is coming soon, and then April.....and you know what happens in April? Spring!!! March is usually a good quilting month for me, so I am enthused again to get more things finished. How about you?
Please show us what is on your design wall (or design floor...or whatever) and tell us what you are making. As usual, I ask please that you talk about Design Wall Mondays in your post and also provide a link back to my blog from somewhere within your post. Thanks!
