This weekend has been a great weekend for sewing! The boys have been hanging out with their Aunt and Grandma a lot which has given me some quiet time….Awesome!
And for some reason when Hubby isn’t here I get soooo much more stuff done! For example yesterday I had swept and mopped the floors, done the dishwasher, started the clothes washer and was ready to sew by about 9am….that is unbelievable!
So on Friday I was sitting looking at my sewing stuff thinking “I am so frustrated because I want to sew quilts but I get caught up making little things” so I started a quilt that has been waiting for some lovin’ for months…
The book is Sarah Fielke’s Quilting From Little Things. This box of fabric has been tucked away for ages so it was great untying the jelly roll and getting started!
That was Friday and this is where I am at today as of about 1pm…
It is kinda hard to see but there are 11 full stars and 2 half stars here all done! Yay!
One jelly roll wasn’t enough so I added 20 more strips from my stash….makes it a bit more scrappy!
Did you know Kate Spain’s selvages say “For Personal Use Only”….so does that mean I can’t use the scraps in my notebook covers? And what if I wanted to sell the quilt when it is finished? Found this out over here – Leah has written an awesome post on copyright, well worth a read!
BTW….don’t the tiles look great?! So much more cleaner looking!
I stopped working on the quilt so that I could get some looong overdue bee blocks done.
These are Waverlee’s for February in the QCA Bee #2. Can you tell I am desperate for a new camera? This one is taking shocking photos.
Seems I am a bit of a chatter box today!
