A few things closer to finished





Finally got the blocks made for our mystery quilt from QCA.  Still have to put border on and finish but at least got it entered into the media for the site.  I also got my sister and her hubby's quilt finished and now just have to wash it and send along.

Another Grey Day

Well its another grey outside. I really wish that it would clear up longer than a few hours. We had a beautiful sunny day yesterday which went a long way to charge up the batteries!! I got the windows washed ( in the inside as it is still cold outside) and a few of those little projects finished.

 I managed to get the next steps of the mystery quilt finished in a very short period of time.  Here is a picture of what I have finished already.

I also have been trying to use up some of the loose cut pieces that I have in the drawers,
Not too sure where I am going with this but with the design wall that my Mom and I made, it is nice to be able to put up the pieces and design as I go.  I also am sewing a bunch of strips together that have been sitting in my scrap container for something in the future.  Maybe I will incorporate both styles into one....
I also got a few more of the sailboat blocks finished.
The only thing that I didn't get finished was the quilt for my sister and her husband. I had to rip out some of the quilting as I ended up with some ugly folds in the backing fabric.  The darn thing is so heavy that I just didn't get it laying flat enough.  Oh well.. it is ready to finish now... must get to it..
That's all for now.. must get the housework finished so I can go play again!!!
