The Flu is Here

And I got it.  Not feeling to well and not getting too much quilting done.  Just a little applique.

Here are the balance of the marathon sewing I did last weekend.

I just finished the applique on this quilt top.  It is called Everyday Patchwork.  It was a free Sew Along by Cheri Payne that she held on her blog.  The applique really makes the quilt.

I also finished my Speedwell Quilt top.

This quilt top was so easy to make.  I got it all cut out in a couple of hours.  This is a free pattern that was posted on the Moda Bake Shop Blog.  I've already got plans for making another one in a different color.  The pattern calls for using a layer cake.  

Here are all the blocks I have made so far for the Splendid Sampler Quilt.  For some reason this picture is fuzzy.   Hopefully when I get more blocks done I can get a better picture.

Well, I'm going to go sit and put my feet up, watch some TV and drink some Ginger Ale.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Hugs, Cathy

So sorry you are unwell. Yes, there is such a thing as being too sick to sew. : )
You have lots of progress to look at and enjoy while you let your body recuperate.

Oh no. Not sick again. But you are still getting some stitching done. I so like the dark border with applique on the Cheri design.

Your marathon sewing produced some beautiful quilts. Now rest up and feel better.

Your projects are beautiful. Love the appliqué in the first one and how the pink fabric is stealing the show in your Splendid Sampler blocks. Think I will have to go pin the middle pattern from the bake shop ;) Take care and get some rest!
