Sunny Spots

Remember I am keeping it sweet and calm - and I really had to laugh at myself.  Yes, multiple boo-boos.  Some need of repair that is not to stress, just calmly get those tools of the trade and make things right.  I use my seam ripper to start  and then I like a razor blade or an old rotary blade to remove those stitches.  A block that - gosh -  I laid that all out in order, but still put two sections in wrong.  And the jelly roll quilt had a row in backwards.  But all fixed and still calm.

See, that pillow block is fine now  - and this is what I have been playing with.  Various blocks to make pillows.  A few more cut/prepped for the week's play.

And some relaxation (actually they wore me out) with my grandies.  Two guys who really love each other.
I had another guild member send me more photos of the quilt show from last weekend.  This was the show's Honor Quilter, Susan Reed.  And more of her wonderful work.
Photos from the host Quilt Guild Room - Year's Challenge - Red & White -  Quilts & Handwork.

I have a few more, but will save them for tomorrow.  Thank you Sharon A. for sending these to me.

Beautiful quilts. Cute young guys :)
You just described the process I'm making while trying to sew my last three stars for my patriot quilt. I finally had to walk away, two days ago.

What a wonderful post to read! Your pillow blocks are wonderful. I spent most of today "unsewing" one block...but it is always worth it! Your grandchildren are precious! And thanks so much for sharing the show. I really love those red and white quilts!

I think we all make those sorts of boo-boos. Glad to know that I'm not the only one. Those quilts are just WOW. I'm especially drawn to the red Hunter's Star. The kidlets are so precious too.

What sweet little fellows!! All the quilts from the show are marvelous. I love the lot of red and white quilts. There's been a lot of interest in them particularly since the NY show/display last year! :)

It really is frustrating when things go wrong like that, but the end result was perfect!
