A Little of This...a Little of That...

It's been a while! Now that my quilt is in the quilting frame most of my free time has been devoted to big stitching it! So far, I'm loving it!

I'm using 1/4" masking tape and quilting just beside it on each side. It is coming along slowly, but it is a satisfying process. The downside is that I don't have much else to show!

This weekend I did go to my local quilting retreat. Remember those hand dyed fabrics from long ago? Well I used them all up this weekend sewing log cabin blocks.

There are 2 of each color combination. I had 30 colors in all. My mission for the weekend was to piece all 30 blocks and I did! Yeah!
It will take me some time to figure out the best way to lay them out, but that is the fun part!

I wasn't very smart this weekend though because I forgot all about my camera until I was home and there was lots of show and tell! Next time...

Thanks ladies for the fun and productive weekend.

Some of you may have noticed I didn't get around to doing the Free Motion Quilting Challenge this month. I'm afraid that for part of the month my sewing machine was behind boxes of my belongings while we put new flooring down in my bedroom.

It is so much nicer than the carpet that used to be there and so much easier to keep clean. My bedroom is just through a doorway from my sewing room and I had a lot of threads tracked in. Now a quick Swiffer and it's all clean! Well worth missing a Free Motion Quilting Challenge. I`ll make it up though!

Happy Stitching!

  1. Very pretty quilt. Love the color combination. I am curious how you will layout the log cabins.
