Rows on the Wall


I don't have a wall big enough, so luckily it was a nice day (we've had lots of rain and cold) so photo'ed outside.  This is the Trifle Dish Sew Along row quilt with Moda Bake Shop.


This is a lot of speed sewing - only 2 days inbetween release of the next pattern/tutorial.  I am just using fabrics from my scrap baskets for this one.


I was lucky to find these pretties in my FQ totes for the next row - strawberries.  A much simpler block that will be a breather.  I am just hoping the background fabric (cut off from a quilt backing) is enough - a lite beige on cream basket weave print which should work great with those strawberries.


And I haven't shown these at all.  This is Cindy of Quilt Doodle Designs' 2014 BOM row quilt.  The snowmen will get their button eyes once quilted as well as some other embellishments.  **is anyone else having trouble with flickr?? I can't even get the home page - hate to think I lost all my photos**


And I got three more rows on my 'Island Chain' quilt - look - a corner!  Putting on the longest row means it will go quicker now, but making sure all those little labels are placed to keep track of the pattern.


I am having trouble with my sleep pattern again, so a sleepless night had me catching up on the cute little 6" blocks offered thru the month along with the RSC2014.  You could easily pick some of these blocks and make a row quilt with them.  My little mini eclaires container is full, so I will have to pull another to start filling for the second half of the year.

What's on your wall (floor, bed)?

**linking up with PatchWorkTimes design wall Monday**

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  4. Your projects look great, as always. I love the Trifle Dish blocks. I am saving the instructions for these. Hope to do them later. Flickr seems to be requiring a Yahoo account in order to get in.

  11. Your projects look great! As for flickr, I noticed last night that they had made some more changes to the page layouts and I had to search for things that I used to know where to find. So frustrating! Someone else mentioned needing a Yahoo account. I made that change some months ago and until I did that, I couldn't make anything work. Like you I couldn't get to my home page or anything. I thought for a while that I had lost all my photos but I got it all straightened out. I had to do some searching for instructions and help screens to find out how. Probably took me half a day to get it all working again.

  16. The Quilt Doodles BOM is so cute! I haven't been to Flickr in a while, but went over to see what's up, lots of changes and it seemed really slow, just keep trying, I have a feeling the changes have made it a bit buggy.

  17. Your machine has been humming away! You are doing a great job keeping up with the QAL. Those are involved blocks to come out every other day.

    I love the winter quilt along blocks and your chain is beautiful.

  18. Lots of pretty projects. Sorry about the sleeping (or lack of it). I've been waking up an hour or two before I should, for the past week or more. Not a good thing at all.

  24. I think I would loose sleep with keeping track of that quilt you have the markers on. It sure has pretty colors in it. Lots of Row Quilts in the works. I didn't have any trouble today with my Flickr. Try again.

  25. That fabric for your strawberries is perfect. That's a fun row quilt! And I love the Island Chain Quilt and I did a search but couldn't find the pattern. It's so lovely in those batiks!

  30. I love all the colors in your Row Along Sharon!!! I would have loved to have joined in but too much already on my plate. I can see that I will be getting my thrills vicariously through your fun scrappy blocks! Your snowman row quilt is going to be pretty adorable too :) Hooray for getting a corner done on your Island Chain quilt!!! I always breathe a sigh of relief when I get that longest row done :)

  31. I'm really loving that row quilt Sharon! I didn't sleep well last night either - up and down several times. I'd get up and sew but I'm afraid the sewing machine would wake my husband. :( blessings, marlene
