But I am catching some good stitching time inbetween my napping. I am adding this to my NewFO - the Favorite Block Quilt Along (button on side bar). The first block was a liberated log cabin. I am using my buckets and totes of browns and various lites. Not a color I have used a lot in the past couple of years so I have a lot!
And the second block - Road to Oklahoma. I used some scrap 'Chocolat' and The Lowell Collection (adaptation from the New England Quilt Museum) - love this fabric and have about a FQ left of it! Our quilt guild summer challange is our interpretation of 'Chocolate' - so this quilt will fit the bill.
I have had this layer cake for quite some time, waiting for the perfect pattern. Well I asked Melissa if I could adjust her StarBurst (button on the side bar) pattern so I could get my cuts from this lovely.
All my pretty cuts, stacked in order. Oh, needed a nap after this only to find this......
Yes, Mr. Moe has moved from his little box to napping on my lovely Little Black Dress. And he has scatteredd them several times, even dumping the whole thing on the floor twice. So I have gone on to do the quilt - taking a lot of extra time to do the steps so I can link up those photos for that step. It is taking me longer to do the blocks this way ------ but if I leave this sitting, they will be on the floor again. I did smarten up and cover them with a towel when I need a nap break - but he is sleeping on top of the towel - he knows it is there!
Another NewFO - for shame! Yes, had to and the new button for Darlene's Mystery Quilt is now on the side bar. The nice thing with this, you can stop when you like - make it a runner, make it a lap quilt, or go for broke and make the BIG quilt. I'm just shopping my scraps, left over charms, left over jelly roll strips - what ever - maybe it will make it to the BIG quilt.
This was my January Doll Quilt Swap - theme - SNOW. These are snowflake stars that actually I had made a couple of years ago for another project - and they sat with all the scraps - unused. They were waiting for a different project. Oops, another nap is needed.....
And here is the quilt with it's little dolly. There are little snowflake buttons in the center of the stars so I added one to her little apron. This traveled to New Mexico - not sure they get snow. But this certainly looks like our area - snow, cold, BRRRRRR.
Well off to idly cuddle with the furries for a bit - gather energy for a little more time with the StarBurst quilt.
