WIP Wednesday 3.29.17

Spring break week is half gone already.  Holy cow.  But we're having fun.  Chuck E. Cheese on Monday... Zoo on Tuesday... Movie on Wednesday...  Who knows what Thursday will bring.  Playdate with BFF on Friday... Good times.

But I also got a few things done in the quilt world too:

My RSC15 Sawtooth Sampler quilt has made it to the flimsy stage.  Whohoo!

I also had time to load it onto the longarm frame and started quilting it with my Circle Lord Jesters.
The UPS man brought some amazing pantographs that I purchased off of Vickie (who had them for sale on the APQS forums) who got a new computer for her machine.  What a big box of fun for me!  Guess my guild will benefit by me learning how to follow pantographs this summer on more charity quilts.  These pantos will be loved and used for sure!

I've had a lot of scraps given to me that had not been sorted (3 garbage bags! from 3 different people!)  It looks like a bomb went off in my longarm room.  Luckily I have a little helper that LOVES to sort fabrics by color.  Here he is busy at work.

He was happy to get the table cleaned off enough for a puzzle break.  We will have to go to Lowes or Home Depot and get at least three new racks to store the tubs. $$$ but will be worth it.  It's awesome to have fun scraps, but if they aren't organized and you can't use them it's not as fun.  Count on some super scrappy backs for charity quilts this summer.

I got another broken dishes block done for the Block Lotto.

I got a few more berries (or buds) (circles none the less) sewn down on my Slow Stitchin' project.

I worked on a few Garden Party (Bonnie Hunter pattern from Addicted to Scraps book) blocks in red and white.  Oh how I love red and white little squares.

  1. Does your little helper rent himself out???? You've gotten so much accomplished.

  2. My goodness, but you are busy! What a beautiful quilt you show at the top; and the sorting of scraps is something I, too, have been undertaking lately. Fun, isn't it???

  3. I love the individual blocks within each star. Even though this is a sampler quilt, it still has a nice even design to it. Congrats on the flimsy finish!

  4. Sawtooth Sampler is a beauty - love your color choices! And lucky you on the scraps -have fun sorting and creating!

  5. Your sawtooth sampler looks great! And congrats on the pattern finds! Looks like a big box of fun! ;)

  6. Your Sawtooth Sampler turned out beautifully! Happy stitching this week.
