The reveal of the commission quilt is finally here. 30 blocks, 53 pieces in each block, for a total of 1,590 pieces in this quilt. The quilt was given to its new owner on Saturday, and she is thrilled with it! Yippee!
Last weekend was so busy I didn’t have any time to work on the baby quilt. Tuesday and Wednesday my sister-in-law Nita came to visit. We talked, did a little shopping, and just enjoyed each other’s company. We don’t get to be together often enough, but I do love the times we are together.
Yesterday was an all-sewing day. BigJ needed to take my car, so I was stuck at home, happily. I got busy and finished up the second baby quilt top. Wanna see it? Of course you do!
I’ve taken a short coffee break from my blog the last couple of days. My sister in law is coming for a visit, so I’ll be spending my time with her. It as been a busy week so far, but I hope to have something to show you on Friday.
It has been another crazy weather week in Minnesota. We have had sunshine, 80 degree weather, wind, rain, hail, and now chilly temps in the 50’s. Needless to say, it’s been good weather for a sewing project! I’ve been busy, so let me show you what I’ve done.
Periwinkle blocks — this is when the fun begins with this quilt. I love to see how the pieces come together and the little periwinkles form. They are so cute, and this fabric is perfect for a little girl, sugar and spice and everything nice!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I had a quiet one here at home, since we had celebrated Mother’s Day earlier. Progress continues in the quilt cave, so let me show you what’s happening.
Mini Retreat — a couple of days with a quilty friend that involved chattering and sewing. It doesn’t get much better than that. Toss in a pretty setting and some sunshine and it’s all good!
While you are reading this, I am quilting away at a friend’s house, having a fun little retreat. I should have some fun progress on the baby quilts to show you on Friday. No worries, I have a little fabric eye candy for you today.
Today it’s my turn to post on the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop. I’m excited to share with you today!
I’ve been having fun this week, working on the baby quilts and getting ready for my Monday post for the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop. I hope you visit my blog on Monday and get to know a little more about me. I don’t have any progress photos to show you, so let’s take a look at a fun Flashback Friday photo.
One day back in 2015, I pulled out my scrap bins and just started to sew. I had no plan, just a little bit of an idea in my head. Here’s what I came up with.
I remember that it was really fun. I should maybe pull this out and add a little more to it. What do you think?
Next week I get to do my blog hop post, and I get to spend some time with a quilty friend at a mini quilt retreat. Jealous?
What are you plans for the weekend? I hope it includes some sewing time!
See you Monday!
