It doesn't seem like I got much accomplished sewing wise this past weekend but it was jam packed full of stuff.
I got caught up with the Modern Half Square Triangle Quilt-a-Long. Go me!! Here are blocks 21 through 24:
I'm excited to be caught up with this. Now I've only got one block a week to do!
I also got two more of my Civil War Sampler BOW blocks done:
|Block 5 -- Hovering Hawks|
|Block 6 -- Port and Starboard|
I'm really enjoying this quilt and the variety of fabrics they are sending. I can't wait to finish this next year!
Saturday was my Shadowbox class at Quilts by Phyllis. I had a wonderful time sewing and talking with all the ladies in my class. I'm about 90% done. I had great intentions of finishing the quilt Saturday evening, but we had a bit of a mishap involving one spotted Bengal cat and a tray of terracotta paint. Needless to say most of my evening was spent cleaning up the cat and the house! I failed to take any pictures of the work in progress or the "cat-astrophe".... I find I'm a slacker with the camera when I'm in a class.
I wasn't' feeling all that great so I spent a little time sorting through some of my scraps .... I plan on starting a scrappy Irish Chain as a leaders and enders project. I'd like to have enough 2" squares to take with me to Jackson's Mill the weekend after next to use as leaders and enders. I may have enough at this point. I'll probably just pack up what I have and make do. I also made a few different string centers for my Lucky Stars quilt. I decided to do different ones since I couldn't decide which I liked best! Hopefully I'll be able to get those done and the Shadowbox quilt on Friday.
Have a good week y'all!
