It appears that for every quilt I finish (even if it’s for a customer), I start another one — or two!
I’m sure none of you ever do that, do you?
Last fall when I went on a road trip to a quilt show with my pal, Linda, we went to a JoAnn’s store, which I hardly ever get to do (which is probably a good thing), and I bought this book there:
And I’ve finally started it! I have Block 1 finished:
It’s really fun, and I’m excited to do more of them. I’m really gonna like this quilt.
To balance that out, I finished my MixMash quilt!
This, dear friends, was a LOT of sewing — whew! But it was fun, and it’s probably my most favorite scrap quilt ever!
There’s a free tutorial for the blocks on The Life of Hazel Ilene blog, and today I posted Part 2 with all the details of how I set mine together and finished it (with more pictures). Go check it out, if you have some tiny scraps to use up!
And since I finished up a couple of customer quilts last week, I felt justified in starting this new Buttermilk Basin Free Spirit of America Sew Along quilt!
I still have so many scraps to use up, I decided to make this one to help with that — it should be quick and easy, so surely I can manage it. You can join in on that at Buttermilk Basin’s web site — click on “Shop Online” and you’ll find it.
So I’m keeping busy with all of that!
What are you up to this week?
