At Last, Some Quilty Content

I figured out today that I am approximately 2 weeks behind on everything.  Except laundry and taking care of the cats.  Everything else...

...fuggit about it

I do have a few blocks to show.  Not much in the way of completed quilts lately.

Today, I did catch up with the Grandmother's Choice Block of the Week.


Block #2 was Amethyst.  Look fast and move on 'cause this block is all kinds of wonky.  This is my second attempt and I am unhappy with it but even more unhappy at the thought of trying again.  Like I said move along...




Today's block was Union Square:  Red for Rebellion.  I liked the thought of a splash of red (and a bit of rebellion) in my quilt so I make it in red and white small prints.

Red little prints always make me think of my friend Sarah, No Blog. (waving to you Sarah)




Yesterday's mail brought the Fat Quarter Shop Block of the Month. I always like to do these right away so I don't get behind.  Usually the day the block arrive.  This is block 4.  I can't believe it's block 4 already.  I better get a jump on that finishing kit...














 I had cut all the fabrics for this month's Schnibbles project (well really it's a Little Bites pattern), but had not started sewing.

Here is one block done.  It is so cute and tiny, you just want to kiss it. MWAH!






Here's some more hexies for the Hexy Quilt Along.  I have about half of them done.  These are fun to sew in the car on long trips and while watching TV.  I really am hooked on English paper-piecing now.

And if you made it all the way down here.  Here's some gratuitous Remy toes .

Oh toes! toes! toes!!!! Distracting me. Loving the hexies. Great piecing on these blocks especially I thought the first one. Really. What are you thinking on that? Looks very difficult.

Block #2 doesn't look wonky, it looks good! That bunny fabric! So cute. Like R. toes.

I love what you are doing; the pictures are wonderful. The bunny block is ADORABLE as are the hexies. Kiss a Remy toe for me! Karmen

Block 2 looks fabulous to me. Looks like a fun block to stitch. Love the Remy toes.

I saw your beginnings of your Hexy quilt. LOVE them!

Did you get your templates from The Fat Quarterly etsy shop in the UK?
