Keeping Busy

 I got my second Covid 19 vacine on Saturday.  So far no reaction.

Now to show you what I've been working on.

1.  Mrs. Brown and Annabelle decided to go on vacation this month.  Therefore I have nothing to show you.  Hopefully they will be back soon and I can play with them again.

2.  Mrs. Lincoln's Quilt

I chose to do a simpler version of the pineapple. 

3.  Ready for Spring.

These are Blocks 7 & 8.  I just got the pattern for block 9.  Then I need to make the connecting blocks and put the quilt together.

4.  Fig Tree Sparkles and Cream BOM.

Here are March's blocks.  As you can see this is a low volume fabric quilt.

5.  Shine on BOM.

Here is month 4 blocks.  It is going to be a bright and cheerful quilt.

6.  Sewcialites BOW.

Blocks 23 and 24.

7.  Pat Sloan's Home Is..

Blocks 11 and 12.

8.  UFO of the Month.

My APQ UFO for this month was a quilt called Molly.  I thought I had all the pieces cut out but when I pulled out the box I found I still needed to do some cutting.  I then knew I would not be finishing this UFO.  The blocks are 18" and I managed to make 6 blocks.  I will continue to work on this when I have a few minutes.

9.  March Mini,

My monthly mini for this month is a Jan Patek quilt kit I  purchased a while ago.  This seemed like the perfect month to work on it.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you found something you liked.

Hugs, Cathy

Spring is in the Air

 Skies are blue and the sun is shining.  Windows are open and the air feels good.

I had a reaction to the covid shot.  A couple of days after the shot I got a headache to end all headaches.  It hurt to walk, talk, and move in any way.  This lasted for 3 days.  Then I got a stomach bug not related to the shot.  So I wasn't doing too good for almost a week.  So when I went to download photos of what I have worked on I was surprised.  I got quite a bit done.

1.  Sewcialities BOW

Block 21

Block 22

2.  My Favorite Color Is Moda.

These are months 2 and 3.  This BOM was suppose to start in January but they were missing one of the fabrics so it was delayed.  It started in February.  Then the fabric came in so they caught us up to day.  Hence 2 months worth of blocks this month.

3.  Pat Sloan's Home Is...BOW

4. Lexington BOM.

5.  Ready For Spring BOW.

Here are blocks 5 and 6 and then all the blocks so far.

6.  Hands All Around.

Blocks in order top to bottom.  8", 12" and 16".

7.  Quilt Doodles BOM

I leave you with this cutie.  Who would think that a skunk could be so cute.

Well thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are safe, healthy and enjoying some wonderful weather.

Hugs, Cathy

February Month End

It's been a strange month.  Temps close to 0 and yesterday it was 53 degrees and gloriously sunny.  Now let's get to the photo heavy post.

1.  Celebrating Mary Brown.

 Mary, Mary, Mary.  This block had me pulling my hair out.  It's not perfect but it is done.

2.  Mrs. Lincoln's Quilt.

We are getting closer to the end.

3.  Ready For Spring BOW

Blocks 3 and 4.  5 more blocks to go and we are done.

4.  Pat Sloan's Home Is...BOW

The latest 4 blocks.

5.  Sewcialities BOW

The latest 3 blocks.

6.  Annebelle BOM.

This quilt is getting so big I have no where to lay it out.  In this picture it is on my bed.  At the top you can see the round that I just added.

Here is a closeup of this round.  These blocks go around the entire quilt.

7.  Sparkles and Cream Mystery Quilt by Fig Tree Quilts.

These blocks are 5" finished.  They are very muted.  Totally out of my comfort zone.  In the directions they said some of the combinations were hard to read but it is designed to be this way.  We will see.

8.  APQ UFO of the Month.  Derby House.

In order to finish this top I had to finish one Applique block which I did earlier in the month.  Then I had to sew all the blocks together.  And there were a ton of them.  However the setting directions were excellent.  This top was too big to put up on my design wall so I laid it out on my bed and took some photos.

I've been asked how I keep track of all my projects.  This is how I keep on track.

Each month I make a list of all the projects I am working on.  When I finish what needs to be done each month I cross it off with purple marker.  This months list is now fully covered in purple.

Now last but not least.  My Mini for the month.

This is a Quilt Doodles pattern.  I got to try out my buttonhole stitch on the new machine.

Yesterday I got my first Corona Virus vacination.  I go back in 4 weeks for the second shot.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you found something you liked.
