On A Roll . . .

Holy Toledo, I'm not sure what has gotten in to me, but i just can't stop sewing...all weekend, every night this week, i just wish there were more hours in the day :O)

So now i am turning these . . . into this . . .

i luv these fabrics and i think once i get all 9 blocks completed, I'll have to see if they should have some white sashing between them or not ... I'm afraid if i don't do a white sashing, the blocks will just blend together.

Have a great day :O)

Red White and Blue ... Woo Hoo

Thank Goodness Monday is OVER...

So, Friday I received an email from the quilt shop about 20 minutes down the road that they are having a 25% off everything in the store in honor of their 7th anniversary ... so while hubby was at work on Saturday i stopped in the store with a pattern in hand ... i had no intentions of finding what i wanted because every time I go with an always falls thru. But, as soon as i walked in the door i saw a new fabric line by Buggy Barn called Three Cheers and i knew it was PERFECT for the pattern in hand that was made in red, white and blue.

This pattern is called American Dreamer and is by Marcie at Patchalot Patterns and was in the June/July 2010 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts...Woo Hoo finally, my first red white and blue quilt and i luv it ...

Have a great week :O)

Spring Where Are You?

TGIF...Hope you had a great week :O)

Well spring is taking its sweet time to arrive in Ohio, but yesterday was a pretty nice day ... we had sunny skies and 54 degrees...the grass got mowed, the doors were opened to let the sunshine in and this is what we had for dinner ... a great yummy salad ...

and ahhhhh this ... i've been so hungry for bbq chicken on the grill...the tangy thick bbq sauce and those burn marks....mmmm
I haven't done too much sewing...put the binding on the halloween quilt for someone close and put the binding on another quilt that is a gift and i haven't yet blogged about it, but hopefully i will soon.

So i'm doing the block a month that Piece N Quilt is having ... well, i haven't even made my first block yet and we're 3 months into last night i sat down and cut out the first 3 blocks and since hubby works today and tomorrow, i plan to get these done and then start working on another WIP that is for a close family member.

Hope you have a great Friday :O)

My First Friday Night Sew-In (FNSI)

Happy Friday! Woo Hoo, my first Friday Night Sew-In is complete and i feel so great about what i accomplished. My "night" started at 4 this afternoon after my workday was completed...i spent 5 hours sewing and here is what i have to show.

My first project went from this..... to this....

i just luv this quilt. it is called Pocket Full of Pinwheels and you can find the tutorial on this quilt at KarrieLyn's blog ... Freckled Whimsey. It is such a pretty quilt and I can't wait for someone i know to have a baby girl cuz i think it's just perfect. The fabric is Sweet Divinity by Riley Bake Designs.

Then...i moved on to this. Three more pillow cases ... two are UGA with cute bulldogs and one is UNC with Tarheels...

What a great start to a rainy weekend! Two more projects out of the way and I can't wait to get started on another one tomorrow.

Have a super weekend!!!
