Crazy Weather

First we had hot steamy weather with a strong wind out of the south.  Then the wind changed and came out of north and we had cold weather and rain.  I got a call from my son in the UP and they got SNOW...crazy and it's May.

I've been working on a few projects.



 I finally finished Sally Post Block 14.  I don't know why but I think this block intimidated me.  So many pieces.  I'm taking a little break from Sally...she is getting to clingy....lol



I finished 6 more Box in a Box blocks.  These are blocks from the Fat Quarter Shop Sampler quilt.  I'm making 20 of each block for a wedding quilt.



 This is from a kit I got from Craftsy.  It is 24" x 24" and will be a Christmas gift.  Right now it resides on my to be quilted pile.  Just waiting for my hands to heal a bit longer from my Carpal Tunnel Surgery.  It still hurts a bit when I try pinning a quilt sandwich.




This is a booklet that came with the latest issue of "Today's Quilter".  I fell in love with the sampler picture on the cover.  It is called "Walnut Grove Sampler".


  So far I have 2 blocks made.  These are the center blocks.  They are 6" blocks. 



I decided to add a 1 1/2" sashing to my 2014 BOM blocks.  I am adding friendship stars to the sashing where the blocks connect.  Then I will add a 1 1/2" border of the same sashing fabric around the quilt and then a final border from the main fabric.

Slow and steady progress is being made.  I also started working on another Red and Green block.  I should be able to show you a finished block next time.

I hope you are enjoying better weather than we are.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

I did a search to find a picture of the whole Little House Sampler quilt you are working on and did find one. In the process, I came across a site with some info that might interest you.

You are doing so well considering you had that surgery. I love that little 24" Christmas gift quilt.

Well look at you go, girl! Had to laugh about Sally being so clingy, lol. Lovely block though!! Wasn't that wind crazy? I found all my neighbor's dirt in my sewing room, argh. I thought today would be a complete washout, but the sun is out now and it's lovely. Very strange weather lately!

Love your Sally block especially the Daisy flowers that look like they are missing a petal!

Your waterlily header is also very lovely.

May your hands strengthen and have less pain soon!
