Crazy Hot Quilter Ahead!

Why did I pick a hobby that is so HOT! I don't just mean hot... but it's really too hot to quilt! Not that I have any intentions of NOT quilting, but seriously! Who else wraps themselves up in what is becoming a BLANKET in the heat of Summer?
There were laws past during the industrial revolution to protect people from sweatshops, right?
Well, evidently I am a tyrant.
I didn't let myself out of my sewing room all day yesterday...
with one exception: to sweep and mop my floors!LOL
But I did make progress on my list of projects!
I have my rows for the Fig Tree Cub project...

and I have the sashing... so that is getting close to finished. Or so it seems... of course there is inner and outer borders too!
A tote bag for my swap partner...
now I just need goodies to put in it! Hmm, I did make a wallet but it turned out crappy very less than perfect, so I have to try that again!
 
I like the tucks on this purse pattern!


Freckled Whimsy quilt along project, part 1. The fabric. I'm going retro on this one!



My upside down picture of Due South.. or is it North... Carrie has me all confused on this one. I just need to slap those borders on this one too... and then whala, the quilter does her magic!

I love your Due South quilt. I started one in black and whites and it was way too busy. I'm going to have to try it again in some pretty fabrics like you!

LOL! This hobby does rather lend itself to cooler weather, huh? I just turn the a/c down. I like your purse -- and the Due South quilt! Nice! :)

Doesn't look like the heat has slowed you down any -- you've been busy! I love all your projects. Everything is so gorgeous!

Kate said...

That is one downside to summer, though right now Id give anything for a bit of warm weather. Your quilts are looking great.

Love your Due South quilt. I agree about the heat. Add a heated iron in the room and it's a steamy hobby.

You have been busy...love the bag...and your fig tree quilt looks great...isn't it a fun one to make?! And a Schnibble too...you really have been sewing along!

Béa said...

I love both quilts.I signed for next year Fig Tree Club, hope to have so beautiful projects as I have see this year.
Have you already an idea for the after " A year of Schnibbles" ? I loved this monthly challenge.

Cherie said...

The only reason I would leave my sewing room to mop is if I needed to pin/baste a quilt for quilting ;)

Must agree...lately I look at the iron and think how I LOVED it during the winter's chilly days...but as of late...not so much!

Carol said...
