End of the Month

What a crazy month this has been.  I'm generally a home body.  I don't go out much.  I spend most of my time sewing.  But in the back of my mind I knew I could always run to the store or go visit friends and relatives.  But that has changed.  The hardest thing is when I realized I am one of the ones that are most susceptible to the virus.  One - I am 70 years old.  I don't feel it but they say I am a senior citizen.  Two - I am diabetic.  Three - I have high blood pressure.  Four - I just went through cancer treatments.

So I am staying in and trying to behave myself.  Not always easy because I like to shop on the

Enough of that.  Let me share some projects.

1.  Celebrating Mary Brown.

I was scared of this block.  But I am quite happy with the way it turned out.  I was hoping to get an additional block made so I'd be caught up with Karen but I ran out of time.  

Be sure to stop by and see what KarenJennieRobinRebecca, and Nanette are up to.

2.  Mrs. Lincolns Quilt.

I am enjoying this quilt.  Stop by and see Juie to see her blocks.

3.  Derby House BOM.

Each month I receive fabrics and patterns for the month.

These are the pieced blocks.  They finish at 5".

This is the appliqued block.  This block is the reason I signed up for this BOM.  I can't wait to see what I get in the mail next month.

4.  Providence BOM.

This is a BOM I signed up for through Connecting Threads.  Each month I receive fabric and patterns for 2 different blocks.

Each block is 12".  This BOM is only for 6 months.

5.  Yankee Notions.

I am enjoying this BOM.  I bought the whole pattern from Barbara Brackman's website so I've been able to work on them early.

6.  March Mini Quilt.

I am enjoying changing the quilt on the hanger each month.  Now i need to decide what to make for the month of April.  I'm joining in with others and Wendy at The Constant Quilter. 

I bought a pattern from Temecula Quilts not realizing that it put my name in for a giveaway.  And guess what I won.  I won the book "Sisterhood of Scrapes".  I can't wait to get it. 

I hope you are doing well.  Doing the social distancing, washing hands and wearing masks when needed.  I am keeping everyone in my thoughts and prayers. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

A Good Day to Sew

It's cold, dreary, rainy and very overcast.  Welcome to Michigan.

I've been keeping busy and I am ahead of schedule on some of my projects.  I have a few to share with you.

1.  Quilt Doodles BOM

These blocks are 20" x 20"  and I am using scraps for the background.  

2. Cheddarback BOM

I'm so excited that we are almost done with this quilt.  One more month.  I can't wait to get this quilt all put together and start hand quilting it.

Well my to do list is dwindling down.  I have finished a few more blocks but can't share till the end of the month.  

I have 3 quilt tops ready for quilting and hope to get them quilted by the end of the month.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  

Hugs, Cathy
