Time Off Work Did This Quilter Good!

I took Weds – Fri off of work last week. It was glorious time spent doing what I do best…Quilting!

I finished quilting and binding this scrappy braid. I used Jera’s machine binding tutorial to bind it.

I sewed my first chevron together.  I plan to put a border on it.

I made the 2nd set of 4 blocks for a mystery quilt I’m working on.

I’m not sure how it’s supposed to go together…as it is a mystery, but I currently have it laid on the design wall in the shape of a heart.

My plan for this next was a scrappy log cabin, but when I failed to sew 2 lights onto the heart center in the first round… I just went somewhere else w/it.  Here’s what I have so far. It’s looking more like a modern art quilt and it unintentionally resembles the Tommy Hilfiger logo.

I didn’t ONLY sew during my time off though. I finished reading a book, I helped a friend pack, AND I took my grandson to the zoo!

I Just Can’t Help Myself…

Whenever I start a quilt I plan not to post pics until at least the quilt top is complete. But I just can’t help myself! I get so excited about how it looks, usually before I even start sewing it together…and I just have to show the world!

Here is the Scrappy Braid I’m working on. I actually started quilting it yesterday.

And here is the Chevron currently laid out on the design wall.  I luv these colors and fabrics!

Lastly, here are 4 blocks from the mystery quilt I’m working on w/QA. I’ll be working on a new pattern of 4 this week.

Happy Quilting!
