Flimsy Friday

It’s Flimsy Friday here, and I have a flimsy to show you. My week has been a little slow in the sewing room. I’ve been having trouble getting motivated. So yesterday I just made myself make progress on something.

I got to work on my Spring Paws, which I began working on back in May. You can read about it here. The fabric is a fat-eighth bundle of Dixie by Cluck Cluck Sew that came in a Sew Sampler Box from The Fat Quarter Shop (no affiliate). I didn’t have a pattern for this little quilt. It measures approximately 30″ x 30″.

Here’s another view, a little closer.

Now I need to find a backing for this quilt, and then decide how I want to quilt it. I think I have enough fabric left over to do a pieced binding, if I decide to use it.

So I count the work on Spring Paws as a little progress on a UFO this week. One step closer to being done, and the bright fabrics are fun to sew with during this season!

The Quilter’s Planner Sampler Sew Along

It has been a busier week for me outside of my quilt room, so that has slowed me down a bit. I did get the January block made for The Quilter’s Planner Sampler Qiult Sew Along.

Will I get all the blocks done?ย  I really haven’t even decided the colors of the quilt yet. These fabrics just came together, and I sewed up the block. Sometimes that’s how I roll! All of the fabrics are from my stash. The center fabric is an Amy Butler that I’ve had for a few years and have been using bit by bit. The rest are all just scraps, so I have no information on what fabric they are, with the exception of the top pink triangle, which is Kona Pink Flamingo.

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

  1. I have to say I’m a fan girl of the Dixie fabric by Cluck Cluck Sew and it looks great in this little mini quilt. I hope you are able to do a scrappy binding with the left over bits, it will add even more fun. And I have to say I love how you roll…I love just pulling fabrics from my stash and seeing how they play together. I think your Quilters Planner Block is a great start to your quilt.

  2. Love your mini quilt and we can talk Shopping Sister; I have the fabrics to help you finish–wink!

  3. Don’t be too hard on yourself…we all have those “uninspired” times! However, you DID make something that is so bright and cheery! Good for you! Maybe that brightness will get you over that hurdle! As for the Quilter’s Planner…I wish I had bought one this year. I know it isn’t too late, but I decided not to. It was a great inspiration last year and I got through all the blocks up to about June…then petered out. One block a month is much easier to make and to coordinate fabrics! Have a great day!

  4. OH! that Amy Butler…I actually whispered that aloud when I saw it…you’ll see why when you see my current project (in a couple of weeks, ha); just remember: kaleidoscope. Adorable little 30″ quilt too; you are a machine lately, taking your cue from Vicki methinks. ๐Ÿ˜‰
