AW got it. Cheesy Hamlet is my jam.

I don't  know why sometimes posting from my phone orientates weirdly. It bugs me.

Monday Check In!



Today's Discussion Question: Did you make any progress on your Feb quilting goal? Also, what's your sewing room/area/corner like? Do you have a dedicated space or do you move around the house to sew? Feel free to share pictures if you want/have some available.




feb 8 check in



Goals from last week...

Finish two commission tops, tops are done email is sentwrangle the woman to select backings, baste, quilt, bind and get them gone.

Make six tea wallets for husbands aunt cut these out tonight, will get to them after hockey tomorrow afternoon

Make 25-40. (?) double sided zip pouches for Friday for the kiddo's opening night gifts. This one is top priority right now. And i just scored some old school brocade samples for one side, just have to select the modern fabrics for the other. (The play is set in two timelines, Regency and modern, this was his idea)done and delivered for opening night, complete with hand beaded zipper pulls

Start qbs9 blocks.got my examples done...still waiting for signups to close


I have a dedicated sewing room. It is referred to as either the slothcave, girl office or the pit. Depends on the state of mind and being. It has my overly cluttered cork board with block samples and fabric swatches and pics of the kiddo and all my favourite artsy things and creativity boosters. When we designed and built the house hubby gave up a chunk of his office so i could have a nice big fabric closet!
view from the closet.

Couple things.

Anyone want to come play in the quilt block swap? Sign ups go til sunday.

And I just spent the day making list of little things. Some examples for the QBS. Some wonky stars for my daily quilts. Sashed out the giant commission. Little things that the sewing room that usually add up to a big mess.

And then I tidied up AND swept.

Time to start messes again. Smiley I'm on my own most of tonight as well. Cheesy

Another  block.  The centre seam  isn't sewn. On purpose. I want room to move for colour placements. And hey, less work for you. Wink

All righty.

Here's one of my patterns made up. BUT. The 3.25" square measure comes up just short of 12.5...



And the 3.5" measure comes up just over.



I don't really care which size. But I do want them all t same size. So. You guys tell me. Want to cut 3.25" or 3.5"...

That's the idea. But all sizes, styles and fonts. And nouns, verbs, adjectives are all in play. Punctuation not desired.

I'd include the first one i did but it is a swear Wink

Paper peiced, applique, straight piecing. I have links for lots of different free patterns in all formats for the paper pieciing adverse.

I will have non swears ready tomorrow.

Hi! Sorry for being MIA for like.. days Cheesy My body decided we're not doing anything for a while, so I've mostly been sleeping and

Even though I "need" two groups, I'm going to settle with one group, because I'm just too tired, and I don't want to rush anyones blocks.

Here is what I am looking for
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_cQ6onhM14z4/S_RdFNMKlKI/AAAAAAAAAuU/t2yVkgZa3pA/s1600/013.JPG

Would this be ok? Not paper pieced just ironed on with heat and bond......then stitch around the applique with black thread.  I will try to make a sample if there is any interest.  If not then I have another block in mind or could list both and let my partner choose.

If I am coloring outside the lines on this one let me know and I will put my glasses on!!!!!!


None of those blocks were paper pieced. I know. I made three of them. Smiley just regular wonky piecing.

No worries ladies. I'm all in all three groups. Unless we have a HUGE uptick in sign ups you will all get a chance. Wink
