Did a bit of sewing!

I found a few minutes last night to do a bit of sewing. Oh that feels so good! I have caught up on my house quilt. Just need to wait for the next months mailing now! Isn't it a really fun quilt! And the blocks are really large, so this will be a nice size quilt!

I also started some blocks for the quilt I'm going to use that awesome green border fabric with. A lot of people wanted to know what I'm going to use it for. Well I'm not showing a picture because I'm working on it next and thought it would be fun for you to watch it come together. The 9-patches all came from small bits of repro fabrics I have in my stash. It was so much fun to dig through my box of small pieces and see what I could use. I have a pile of some more for another night this week! So for today you get to see 5 9-patches!


And something "cute" for Nancy to go with her Bear pictures today!

Love the way that your quilt is coming together. Great look...fun and whimsical...yet homey.

Pretty 9-Patches!

I could do some of the Bear stuff...'cept for sleeping for 6 months. (Just think of the horrible taste in your mouth! Yuck!) ;P

I like your 9 patches quite a bit!

I have that house pattern and I've gotten stuck because I don't like the directions! She says CUT THIS AND SEW IT TO THIS. THEN CUT THIS AND SEW IT TO THIS. I'd so much rather do all of the cutting at once, wouldn't you? I like the finished blocks but am not liking the process at all. I'd like to get back to it . . .

Dawn, I love how your House quilt is turning out, especially those trees in the latest block. Wonderful 9 patches. I need that bear poster, where ever did you find it. Too cute, Nancy in MT
