My kind of day

My favorite way to spend a day. And a lot of progress has been made.





Some of the finest blue and white fabrics being turned into lots of blocks. Having fun in my new sewing corner in my bedroom.

What a great day it has been.

Focus

Keeping my attention on this top is my main focus these weeks.
It is a pattern from Sue Daley. It is called "Pies and Tarts".
Method is EPP and handapplique. Blocks are sewn together by machine.

Have indulged myself to start a new project

After being good, I think, and sorted through scrapbins I got some fabrics out to start on a new quilt.



 Really enjoying this.
Started to cut fabrics right away.


 Found this so much fun, got half of the blocks sewed together in just two days.





Rest of the blocks is cut and ready for marking, some more cutting and sewing.
Pure bliss. Sometimes a quilt comes together like it was ment to be long before it was even thought about.

Time...

...is flying by when you are having fun.
The weather has been fantastic here. That is until yesterday, now it is cold and lots of rain.
I am working on some new projects, don't have any photos yet. So for now I'll show some things that where made a few weeks ago.



This is going to be put on my kitchentable when quilted. Used EPP for the carpenters wheel center.
Yellow fabric is from a secondhand pillowcase, outer border is a thick linen.



This is a crib quilt currently being handquilted.  I'll show all of it when it is finished.

I'll get off to do some more sewing, can't wait to see how it is going to look.

Scrapbins are full

I have two baskets that I put scraps in. Couldn't get any more in them, thought it was time to figure out what to do with some of the scraps. First I started to sort out the pieces, and put them in plasticbags. Strips will be used in log cabin quilts, odd bits for applique or EPP. Triangles were also put in a bag. 


Started sewing HST of the triangles. Squared them up to a 2" size.


Then sewed them in to rows with ten square in each row.


Then adding row by row untill I was happy with the size.


Added a green fabric for borders on each side and a pink one at top and bottom borders. 
The top is now ca. 21,5" wide and 25,5" long. It is put in the basket with other tops ready for quilting.
Now I am happy to say that the bag with triangles is almost empty.
