Monday Making

I've been camping 
and sewing.

I packed some scraps and enjoyed making string blocks!


I also enjoyed some outside games!


Now that I'm home,
I hope to finish this simple baby quilt.
The baby is almost here!!!
What are YOU making this week??

Finishes


Being a grandma means I get to make some of these.
I DO love baby sweaters!!
There's the YARN.
There's also the SIZE.....ha ha!!
And the BEST part....
Is seeing the little one WEARING IT!

I also finished this half square triangle quilt top this week!

It was a FUN challenge working on my color VALUES!!!
Some of the fabric is outdated and
some is downright ugly.
(it was a personal challenge to see if I could make it work!)
It also contains quite a bit of purple.
Not one of my TOP colors.
But...
I do like the design.
The squares are 3 1/2".....
Not quite small enough to HIDE the ugly fabric.

Monday Making

I am currently sewing half square triangles.
NON-STOP! 
:)

There is a happy BUZZ in the sewing room
as the quilt grows and grows!!!

This quilt contains SO many ugly fabrics.
Look close and you'll spy them.
but...
It is SO FUN to see them MINGLE
in this quilt
and become something
BEAUTIFUL!!!

Each half square triangle block is 3 1/2".
I am using a NEW to ME tool
called - EASY ANGLE.
It seems to save time and FABRIC!
Yeah!


What are YOU making this week??

Monday Making

I am still making broken dishes blocks.
Since they measure  only 4 1/2",
it will take quite a few to make a bed sized quilt!

I'm cutting, chain piecing and trimming
at HOME
and....
AWAY.

:)

It's fun to SEW while CAMPING!!!
and..
Lugging scraps to the camp ground is NOT THAT bad.....
Haha!
I will also be working on a couple more "ships" this week.

There is a block swap in my guild
and I hope to WIN one of these months!!!

What are You making this week???
