What I've been up to!

Sunday, March 03, 2013

Well I've been meaning to share some of what I've been doing while hiding in my sewing room and today I'm finally doing it!!

In January I took a class as I enjoy the time with the ladies and just focusing on actually sewing plus I get to see and touch and of course buy some fabric. This class was using 2.5 x 4.5 inch strips. I like Bali Pops as they are already 2.5 in strips so cutting is easy and time-saving. So I chose color of course and this is my quilt top. I'd hoped to get it finished to donate for a benefit but I just ran out of time so now I will finish it and see what speaks to me to do with it. It is the size of a throw so not big enough for a bed by any means.

Yesterday I started a 2nd class this one also a variation of using the same size pieces but this one called Bingo Whirl I believe. We started with choosing fabric, cutting, and making our 24 blocks. Next will be the borders so have some homework and will have more color to it. The light portion does have orange in it but hard to tell from the photo. I will share upon it's completion. but happy how my points came out.

So this is why I have been busy enjoying my time in my sewing room. Just thought I'd share!!

    Wow! Those are fantastic! I mad a friend of mine one for her wedding from her bridal party and it was great seeing it come together. lol I heard prior that if you ever make a quilt you have to do it for someone you love or a good cause because no one could ever actually afford to pay you to make one... I must agree with this lol .

    Isn't it fun - how quilts and colours develop a life of their own? And points like your are hard to achieve! emoticon I'm looking forward to seeing the finished project.

    You girls amaze me with your talent. I can't imagine doing either project but they are looking good! It's good to know you're having fun hiding in your sewing room.

    The sewing room, a great place to spend time. This is just the inspiration I need. I just spent 2 days tearing apart and reorganizing my sewing room. Of course I have a stash that needs to be put to good use and your quilts have me thinking, thinking.

Nice, nice pieces.

    How fun for you. I love the blending of colors in the pastel quilt top. I know you tried to get it done, but it is beautiful.

The second is very much you, though. It will be very fun and bright, especially with your colors in it.

I'm glad you got some "me" time and got to do something productive and fun. Hope you kept the quilt store open another year.

    I'm drawn more to the colors in the top photo than the lower photo but both look nice patterns
