I've Been Better

But I've also been worse.  Thanks goodness I'm starting to feel better and am getting some sewing done.

First off I got some blocks sewn for the Ohio Sampler.

Sweet Gum

Ohio Star

 True Blue

I made this block in place of Star and Crescent.  The block was a bit too difficult and since I'm still not up to par I needed something easier.

Be sure to visit KarenLori, Luann and Nancy and see their versions of the blocks. 

I have a small finish to share.

T is for Temperance.  This is just 12" and will be displayed on my table frame. It is the April quilt for Huckleberry Stitches Sew a Long.

With renewed energy I started working on a new quilt.  Here is the section I have up on my design wall.

It is going to be a lap quilt for my granddaughter.  Lots of bright colors.

Well I finally finished Ella's quilt.  I have mailed the quilt to my daughter-in-law and will post a picture of it after she has received it.  I have another quilt in the works for them using the same fabrics.  It will be a Mommy and Me quilt.

I hope you are having fair weather.  We have had snow for two days in a row. It's not sticking but the cold weather is here to stay for a while.  I watched it snow during most of the game.  Come on sunshine and warmer weather.  It sure would help me feel better.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

I hope you continue to feel better ... And that spring will decide to show up and stick around for a while!

I did the Star and Crescent block in applique. I tried piecing on section and it did not look good at all. For being under the weather, you still got a good bit done on your projects.

I'll be crossing my fingers for spring weather for you soon. WE had a couple days of it and wow, it was nice!
Love your blocks!!

Snow at this time of the year is beastly. I love yoour blocks and that layout looks wonderful.

Nancy said...

Nice blocks for someone not feeling well. Hope you feel better soon.

Mother Nature has been teasing us with a couple of glorious days before making winter reappear--not nice! We will all feel better once spring comes to stay for good. Your little temperance quilt is adorable. Get well soon!

For not feeling up to speed, you certainly seem to be getting a lot done!
It all looks great, and I especially like the Sweet Gum block.

The new quilt that you've started is one of my favorite patterns. I've already made it in a quarter size version, and a half size version. Now I've got fabrics cut to make a large queen quilt at the regular size (2-1/2" strips). Fun to see your colors on this.

Gosh, I hope you get to feeling better soon. Maybe some nice eater would help. Glad you've had some energy to sew a little bit.

we woke to below freezing temps today! :(
Spring will come and won't we all be so grateful?
I love the sweet gum blocks is is sooooo cute.

Allie said...

Well I'm glad you're on the mend, Cathy, I hope the warmer temps this coming week help you get all the way better. I love your blocks, and that bright quilt! Very cute finish as well!~

What a nice bit of eye candy you've shared. Thanks. The last one for your granddaughter -- do you have to make it by rows? And, I guess that would mean you'd have to lay the whole thing out before you start sewing rows together? I like how cheery it looks so far.
