A Block a Day

And a Row a day...

First my block a day projects.


These are the blocks I have made so far for the Sew Along Cheri Payne posted on her blog.  I am using reproduction CW fabrics.  I have been making one block a day.  I need 25 total.

Next is a new project I just started.  It is going to be a Christmas gift.


I'm using a Lexington by Minick and Simpson Jelly roll to make the blocks.  I ended up ordering another so I can make a decent size quilt.  The blocks are 10" finished.  Today is day 3 so I need to get busy and make another block.


Now for the row a day.


This is another Christmas gift.  I had a few rows already made that I showed you in another post.  I sewed those rows together and then vowed to make a row a day and attach it to the other rows.  So far so good.  

It is so much easier to start these projects now and make a block or row a day. I hate to have to rush to get things done at Christmas time.

I've been prepping applique for the "Old Voices New Impressions" Sew a Long. I like to do applique in the evenings and piece during the day.  I can't wait to start this new project in July.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a great day.

Hugs, Cathy

How smart you are to start on Christmas projects now, getting in a little each day so that by Christmas, you'll have plenty of gifts to give.
