Did you celebrate National Quilting Day?
I did find time to play in the sewing room on Saturday... and
a little bit on Sunday too!
The project above is a pattern by Carrie Nelson that we
are working on this month in the AYOS group.
I am super excited to get this quilt put together.
My focus this weekend was to work on my Bees Knees
quilts. I have 3 unfinished quilts as a result of being
in the Bees Knees Quilting Group.
The one above is my current project.
I still have blocks coming back to me, so this quilt will
I love the look of it so far though!
This was a result of my first year in the Bees Knees.
Everyone made the wheel blocks for me.
But from there I was suppose to make them into octagon shape...
and then into squares. I know! It's scary just to think about it!
So I have put it off for quite a long time!
But... since it was National Quilting Day... I got braved and
I think it's working too!!!
I think I will be playing with this one throughout this week.
I will share my progress!
(this quilt is one I saw first at Hyacinth Blog)
This is another one that I did along with my Bees Knees group.
I only had the blocks half way sewn together. I kept thinking I was going to make
it larger. But after looking at it I figured it was just fine the size it
is. So, I sewed the rest of the blocks together.
It was a pattern from Moda Bake Shop. I think it's called
Starry-eyed. I love the Countdown Til Christmas fabric that
the original was made in but since I embarked on this journey
long after that fabric was available my fabric choice was this
group by Aneela Hoey.
Now, this is a photo depicting my lunch hour today.
It made for a nice break in the day.
I think this is how I will spend my lunch time everyday this week!
