Updates


An update on the Country Charmer QAL - I only managed to get three more blocks done during the month of March.  But this is a work at your own pace, no pressure QAL, so I am not stressing - I want to enjoy the process with this.  Pattern designer, Lynn of Sewn' Wild Oaks has a lovely set of photos of how she quilted her finished top.  I will be linking up with Lesley The Cuddle Quilter - you should visit some of the others progress.


It was a bit of a stressful day - after a lovely Easter . We started out with sunshine and 50ish weather and then within an hour it dropped almost 30 degrees, high winds, rain, snow, hail.  I really thought we were headed for a tornado - so I powered down the computer and TV and put the Emergency radio on.  I did some sewing though - just to keep the jitters down.  66 log cabin blocks speed-chained thru that machine.  I think the faster the wind blew, the faster I sewed!  Yes, the furries were just as scared (or more) as I was!!  We really did not find Mother Natures April Fools Day a big joke.

HELP A QUILTER OUT
The lovely Michelle of Quilts from my Crayon Box has a request out for a special project - a 100 Wishes Quilt for a special young boy - please go read her blog post and help out.

I even spent time writing my April 'to-do' list and hope to have a majority done by the end of this week - a lot has to be done early.  And filling in the calendar with notes for QAL,RAL, SWAP so I am on track.

The next big SewWeQuilt Hop is the April Showers - see button - I am scheduled for the 9th.
Kaaren of the Painted Quilt - see button - has a new Row Along.  I did her Raggedy Friends QAL and just love that quilt, so yes, I am doing this one!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  3. Great Country Charmer blocks Sharon. I love that you are adding "color" around the center square. It looks like you quilted up a storm with your log cabin blocks!

    As for Mother Nature, she is a real practical joker this year isn't she?

  9. Your blocks are great. I can't believe that you got 66 log cabins done the other night.

    The wind here is insane and I can't believe that we had snow this morning. Uggg. Hopefully that is the last of it!

    Thank you so much for the mention about the donations for Joey's quilt. I hope that I can get it made to him quickly. I don't know how much time he has and want to make sure he gets to enjoy it.

  12. I just noticed how alike the Country Charmer blocks are with the Jared Takes a Wife blocks we made in Bonnie's class yesterday :*D Maybe that's why I am so drawn to you and Lesley's blocks every month :) So glad the weather decided to settle down and not get too ugly! I'd have been hiding under the covers with the furry ones!
