Progressing nicely

Just finished a nice long weekend here in Canada. Gorgeous, hot weather and lots of family to see. It has been a couple of weeks since I had to chance to quilt, so I took a bit of time here and there to get some things finished.



Here is Block 6 for the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along.  I am halfway done now, and getting excited. It is going to be a beautiful quilt for me.






Here is my finally finished block for my Sew Modern Bee. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to make with it. This block is called Peppermint Spinners from Quilter's Cache.





I finally figured out what to do with my Mystery Quilt that I talked about in this post. All of these individual strips were suppose to be scrappy. Part of my problem with the quilt was that I would have to sew all of the squares, cut them up into little scraps and then try to reorganize them back into a square. For me, I find this harder to do with the little bits of time I have. I saw a quilt a few days ago that had this organized scrappy look, and I decided to try it out. I really like it. Now, I can sew a couple of squares at a time and not have to work about losing the little strips.

I also got some more work done on my snowman quilt. I might actually have a winter quilt this year. To celebrate all I got done, I started on a new secret project that I can't show you right now (I have always wanted to say that), but will in a couple of weeks.

I hope you are all doing well. I have not had much time to check out Amy's Blogger Quilt Festival but I hope to see more this week.

What pretty blocks! It's coming together. Congrats on winning the giveaway on bingo.

Deanna said...

Organized scrappy is my friend, too. Each block can be organized and still have over 100 fabrics in the quilt. I like the look of the start you are showing.

Michelle..I think the jelly roll sampler is going to be gorgeous and I can't wait to see it. It's funny about the mystery mountains because it was just this morning that I came across my bag that had all 'my parts' in it! Something else that I will have to get to.

I came by to say an Aussie hello from SPRING FEVER!!

Really enjoyed seeing all you've been up to.

There is something about all us "crafty" ladies, we're a special breed I reckon!!

Regards,
