I've been busy

 Which is amazing seeing my husband had a partial knee replacement 10 days ago.  I've had to do a lot more around here than I usually have to.  I took him to his doctor's today and he is doing great.  The doctor said he could drive....Yeah!

Now for the quilty stuff.  I have 7 projects to share with you.

1.  Celebrating Mary Brown

Lots of pieces in this block.  I watched an Applique master class on the quilt show and found a new way of making my stems.  It worked out pretty good.

2.  Mrs. Lincoln's Quilt

I'm loving this quilt.  Unlike Mary Brown, this quilt will be finished this year.

3.  Annabelle

This is month 6.  I still have another 9 blocks to make.  Next month I will be making the alternate 18 blocks for this round.

4.  Sewcialites

These are blocks 14 and 15.  

I started a few more sew alongs.  Here are 3 of them.

1.  Quilt Doodles 2021 BOM

This is a woodland quilt.  It uses both flannel and cotton.  I still have to stitch around the fox.

2.  Barbara Brackman Hands All Around.

Each month we will be making a different centered Sawtooth Star.  There are 3 different size blocks.  I decided to make one each.  They are 16", 12" and 8".

3.  Pat Sloan's Home Is...

These are the first 3 block.  The top 2 are 14" and the bottom is 12".  This is a block a week sew along.

I have 3 more BOM's that are running late due to fabric delays.  I just got this month's package for the "Shine On" BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop.  They also had a fabric delay. 

So I will have plenty to keep me busy this year.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you are keeping safe, social distancing and getting lots of sewing done.

Hugs, Cathy

 I finally have some photos to share.  

1.  A finish.  Seasons BOM

I have the binding cut and have put this on the to be quilted pile.

2.  Mrs. Lincolns Quilt.

These are the blocks from December.

3.  Sewcialites

I am now all caught with these.

4. Shine on BOM

5.  Annabelle BOM

This is getting too large for my design wall.  It is about 62" square and is going to get bigger.  I still have a couple of months left to go.

For some reason all my photos have a blurred spot.  I guess I need a new camera.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  With the unrest going on right now the only thing keeping me sane is quilting.  I hope you are keeping safe and are healthly.

On the 18th my husband is having knee replacement surgery.  After he heals he will be getting his other knee replaced.  So it's going to a long winter and spring.

Hugs, Cathy
