Tying up loose ends!

This week I have been tying up some loose ends in my sewing room. You know, the projects in various stages that have been pileing up for ....YEARS. Yep, those are the ones I've been working on. I found these blocks hidden at the bottom of a box, and decided to sew them together. After putting them up on my design wall and moving the around for a little while I decided on this lay out. I had 10 blocks...not such a great number, but I realized if I saved one out I could use it on the back. The colors are much brighter in real like, and I am in love with it. I only wish I had made more blocks. It would be a great baby quilt. This little baby only measures 18X18. I am still contemplating boarders, but for now it is hanging from the roman binds in the living room. It gives a new meaning to " living with " a creation! And yes, those are my feet :-)

I have been sitting on a charm pack on Moda Sweet for about 8 months now, and finally decided to cut into them. I found this quilt while blog surfing, and decided to give it a go. This baby measures 32 1/2" square with each block a whopping 16 1/2" . I think I'm going to add white boarders and keep it simple! ( sorry for the less than stellar photo)

I am currently working on a placemat for Place Mat swap #2 over on Flickr. I am really excited about this one, and just hope my partner loves it as much as I do! I will post a photo as soon as I know it has arrived safely in Australia!

Happy Fall, Happy Weekend, and Peace be with you.


  1. Digging through your sewing room and finding these UFO's you forgot about is like Christmas. I love your colors in the first picture. And I really like the blocks you are making out of the Moda charm packs. I have some charm packs and didn't know what to do with them. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Those quilt things are pretty.

    I find old, unfinished knitting projects in the bottom of my big knitting bag.
