Blocks

So here you see them, just a couple of the blocks I've been working on. I'm working with the camera phone today, so once again, don't pay any attention to the lack of picture quality.

I have so many more blocks to make before I can call this a quilt, but it's super easy piecing, so it won't take too long. I'll just need to commit some time to sit at the machine and sew. I'm finding I keep getting pulled away to work on hand quilting the mini quilt. When I'm just inspired to work on something I try to go with it, because who knows, I may not feel the same later on.

When you have the chance, go and check out Kathie's work in her sewing room, she's done a great job organising, and reading about it has given me inspiration to do some work in mine too. She mentions a new book, and I loved the cover so much, I whipped over to ebay and put a bid on one for myself. The book will give me further inspiration to get moving! I have a lot in the sewing room that could be Flylady'd away, so I've decided that not only will I spend 15 minutes per day reducing paper clutter, I will spend 15 minutes per day 'sewing clutter' busting. I have already decided that I could use some of the cupboards that Bonnie uses for her fabric stash ... Hubby and I need to visit Ikea or something ...

Well, that's it from me ... have a great day everyone!

I love woven looking quilts, and yours is great! Is that from a book or magazine?

That block looks like Rail Fence to me, am I right?
I have that book, and I love it! Of course, I haven't done anything, but I do love looking and dreaming :)
I've just caught up on a bunch of your posts, and I have to tell you that I think your minis are awesome, and the fabric you bought is "loverly".

This is shaping up really nicely. The fabrics are working really well and it looks like it would be a quick quilt. You've got my vote for this one.

Yup, I never have the room or energy to organize! I just want to sew!

Those are great blocks. I hope I can remember them when I get to do them. Wouldn't that be a great table runner?
