  2. Not much is happening with sewing/quilting today-preparing for the blizzard that will hit the northeast later today. It's snowing already! Hope we don't lose power.

  3. It will be fun to see all your blocks together! Like Sandy W, my WIP list is out of control. I need to concentrate and get some finished up before the weather turns nice again and I want to be outside.

  24. My sewing space has been so lonely the past 2 weeks! I've been working way tooooo much and by the time I'm hope, I'm got only enough energy to get a simple meal on the table. As soon as I get a few spare hours, I'll be stitching up the next BOM from Jacquelynne and I can't wait to get started!

  37. I am currently working on a quilt for my cousin, who recently lost her father. One of the things I love most about quilting is being able to give something that is comforting and full of love to someone who needs it!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awesome block. My sewing room is all boxed up and I'm in the need of some sewing therapy. We recently moved and I'm unpacking the sewing room last since it would be too much of a distraction and I would never get the other rooms unpacked! Hope to get in there this week to organize my new sewing area...which I'm excited about! Thanks for offering the giveaway.

  58. Working on way too many projects but on the sewing table right now is an applique block of bears for a woodsy quilt I'm making for my Sister and Brother in law.

    ReplyDelete
  59. It's what is NOT happening in my sewing space--it needs a good organizing. So in the meantime, I stitch in the family room and try to make progress so there is less to organize in there. Am I succeeding, not so much; but I keep at it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wow, your work is so inspiring. Especially since I have not even finished my first quilt yet! Hmmm. I have to admit that I am ironing the quilting stash that I have managed to accumulate. Despite the fact that I hate ironing, I like to have things organized, and the only hope I have of fitting everything in my sewing room is ironing the post-wash crumpled fabric. Of course it also means that when I pull something from my stash, it will require a lot less ironing. I must admit that I would love to win such a lovely prize, the timing is serendipitous, my wedding anniversary is on February 2nd. Thank you for this opportunity. 😊. I am not sure how other people are supplying you their email addresses so this will have to do for me: gilshallos at outlook.com.

  61. I hope my blocks turn out like yours, nice! Going slow, trying

    ReplyDelete
  62. I just love how you have cut your center block for the butterfly background! Stunning! My 'sewing room' is working on making BOM blocks for about 8 different projects, getting a bit messy.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Just finished a quilt called Extra Credit; a modern wonky log cabin with a little Miss Kate and other fun fabrics. Made a couple of cute HST heart pillows for friends. Going to organize the scraps a bit and move on to a lucky shamrock pillow or table runner next. Thanks for sharing your blocks; love the fabulous color combos.
