Playing catchup

It's been rainy and cloudy all week. So I decided to play catch up and get my commitments caught up.

Just doing some baby blocks for some Aunty quilts we are doing on the forum. This first block makes such a cute baby quilt. And you can use up your scraps doing it.

This next one is just a plain 9 patch. But when the piecer gets all the blocks, she will cut them up and make a disappearing 9patch quilt for a little boy.

I also finished a row for our row robin. But haven't gotten a picture of it yet.

I also got started on this pretty paper piecing project.

I bought it sometime last year, and have been collecting some bright tone on tones mostly, to make it with.

I have these all cut out and ready to go.

It's a nice project to just have on hand, when I feel like doing a bit of piecing.

But for today. I have this quilt all basted and ready to quilt. It's a cold, windy day, we are expecting more rain.... so a perfect project to keep myself busy with.

Have a great day!

  1. I love the pin-will block that you posted first. I keep seeing blocks like that one and its on the list of things I need to do.

  2. Hi Dorian,
    I love pinwheels so of course I adore yours. The paper pieced quilt is wonderful,too. I have never had much luck with paper piecing so your Island Sunrise pattern appears overwhelming to me. I'm sure you are much more experienced than I at this technique and it will turn out wonderfully. Can't wait to see! Here, too, in the foothills east of Sacramento the skies are getting ready to burst forth with some much needed rain. My only hope is that it does not try to make up for the last 4 months in just one day. :/ Hope you are enjoying your sewing time. I'm enjoying mine! See ya....

  3. Wow... you've been busy! Love those blocks!!!

  4. That Island Sunrise is going to be stunning with the colors you have collected. I look forward to seeing your progress on that one.

  5. Pretty, pretty. I love anything in rainbow hues.

  6. Love the rainbow pinwheel block! I love brights, too...


Your comments make my day :)
