Time Really Flies By...

It seems I just can't get to this every week like I was at the first of the year.  However, I'll do what I can. :)

I showed the flimsy of this quilt in April, once I got the borders on.  Then, I quilted it over Memorial Day weekend.  I enjoyed posing the quilt on a chair...

Then, laying it out on the grass...

And, hanging on the front porch.

The spool blocks were made by 61 different individuals.  Each signed her name to her block and we traded them.  It really made it fun and interesting!  We traded the blocks in April 2011, I pieced the main part of the quilt during the summer of 2011, bought the border fabric June 2011, and sewed them on April 2012, quilted and bound May 2012.  A big project that did a lot of sitting!  (Thus, the chair is appropriate, isn't it?)

I also finished this cute 27" square.  It is leftovers from another quilt finished in April.  It will make some little girl happy someday.  It's a great size for a doll.

I've slowed down on the crocheting.  I have quilted a little bit more, but I don't have the binding done yet.  So, maybe by next week I'll have more to share.  I work a bit more than usual this week, and there is a lot going on. I will enjoy next week when the boys are at Scout Camp and I will have my own week :) :) :)

I hope you are able to get some things done, too.  Isn't it amazing how quickly the time is passing?  Thanks for reading!

Happy Sewing!

  1. I like the way the thread on the spools is often made of two different fabrics. Gives a shaded effect.
    Cute little mini rails quilt.
