Back Among the Living...

The medicine finally kicked in and I am feeling sooooo much better.  Thanks for all the well wishes.

Managed to get some sewing done.  I finished sewing the binding on Sunflower #1.
Had to hang it up in the living room right away.  It brightens up the room.

I signed up for the 12" x 12" Something from Nothing Quilt swap at 15 Minutes Play.  I made 2 different quilts.

This is the first one.  I really like it but not sure it is the right fit for the swap.

So then I made this one.  I really like it too.  I need to rework part of it.  But I think this is the one.  Being a traditional quilter I was surprised at how much I am enjoying this.  It really pushes the creative juices.

I managed to make another Farmer's Wife block.  But I am going to redo it.  It looks too dark.

Since I've been sick I've gotten behind on so many projects.  Here's a list of my To-Do's.

  1. Sew down the binding on my Alzheimer's quilt.
  2. Start quilting my Something from Nothing quilt.
  3. Finish January's Granny's Hankies.
  4. Finish March's Henrietta Whiskers block.
  5. Make the latest Barbara Brackman Civil War Block.
This should keep me busy for the week and then some.  I will leave you with this picture of a quilt that I made my Mom and Dad a few years ago.   It was a mystery quilt that I did with one of my guilds. 

Wishing you a quilty day.

Hugs, Cat

Glad to hear you're feeling better! Being sick is the pits!

I like both your swap blocks... but the wonky one is eye-catching.

Glad you are feeling better. I really like the swap blocks. The house block is really wonderful. I hope I am your sendee.

So glad to hear you are feeling better, finally! I know it seems like forever, especially when we have so much to do! You have done quite well despite feeling under-the-weather! I like your blocks, all of them. And unless it is different in real life, the farmer's block doesn't look too dark to me.

So happy to hear that you are feeling better and it sure shows in all the beautiful sewing you've been doing! I love the sunflower quilt! It's the best feeling to get the binding on!

I am so glad you are filling better. Your sunflower wall hanging is beautiful.

SO glad you're feeling better, and back in the sewing room! The sunflower quilt is seriously charming, I can imagine it brightens up the entire room. I love the star block but really love the second one best. Your mystery quilt is very pretty - I hope you get your goals accomplished!

Glad you are feeling better. I love that star block! I need to check out that 15 min to play thing. I love everything I've seen people do. Can't wait to see what you do next with the house block!
