Holiday Weekend...

...equals quilting/sewing time!!! My plans for the 3-day weekend got changed due to family and cold/wind/snow!!!

What a better way to pass the time than to play in the studio?

Miscellaneous blocks made today:

and then I took some "rabbit/bunny" fat quarters and "stripped" them. Sewed them into yard lengths and made a "Jelly Roll" quilt. Hope to get this quilted in the next week or so.....

So, am I caught up? Nope
Is my studio a mess again? Yep
More later...............


Busy, busy, busy.....

,,,not only did I finish up my "Easy Street" mystery top, I also made Merry Mayhem's New Year's Day Mystery!

 "A Modern Twist."

I need to quilt this and get it mailed along with a set of 4 coasters!

Still Rockin' Down "Easy Street"

I still haven't got all the "parts" into a top, but am making progress! I need to make the "B" blocks and I can "set" this quilt!  I am very proud of myself that I've stuck with this!!! If you know me, you know that "scrappy" is very very very hard for me to do!!! I would love to make this pattern again but not scrappy...and that may happen down the road!  Have to finish up this one first!

A sample of by quilt so far:

I will come back to this post and update as I make stay tuned!!

I have finished piecing "Easy Street." It has the backing with it and ready to mail to my machine quilter...

Couldn't get the whole top into the picture, so here is part of it:

I added a narrow purple batik border then a wider turquoise one. The backing is a black on white fabric and I put some lime green fabric in my "don't use, I'm for bindings" box.

--Easy Street--

has been revealed, but I am not ready to "show" my completed top!  I am behind! It's not a top yet!  I am working on it but with all the "family" happenings this past week, I haven't been able to get into the studio and to the machine as I would of liked.... Am getting really excited about getting all the "parts" together into a top!!!!

Stay tuned------

A few of the triangles that will be used in the "settings"

Saying Goodbye--

It's been a hard week. Yes, I know, a great Holiday Season was just enjoyed, but the "cycle of life" has been experienced by the family this week. We laid to rest Hubby's Uncle Ervin on Wednesday and then my Aunt Mary on Friday--so happy they are now pain free and walking Heaven's streets of gold, but it's always hard saying good-bye.

Flying with the Angels my loved ones!!!!
