Cheddar Bow Ties

I hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day today.   

I spent my morning building Ikea Bookcases and organizing fabric.  I have come to the conclusion that I already knew the answer too.  I have too much stuff.  My 401K Fabric fund is 100% funded.  I do not need a pin or a thread.  Am I the only one?  Please tell me I am now alone.   

After I finished the building and organizing I prepped 15 more baskets.  I have 270 of 300.  YAY!

After that I worked on my Cheddar Bow Ties.  I finished all the blocks I needed.  This is 80 nine patches of Bow Ties for a total of 720 3" blocks.   Next weekend I will iron and square them up to start putting the quilt together.  


That's all I had time for this weekend.  I hope you all have a great week!

You're almost finished with your baskets...YIPPEE! That's going to be one awesome quilt! Love your bow tie blocks...beautiful!
And no...you're not alone...I don't need pins, thread, fabric, scissors...NOTHING! But that probably won't stop me...LOL!

Karen said...

That is a lot of baskets to make. And a lot of three inch bow tie blocks. Are you tired of making them?

I am pretty much stocked too but could easily find something I need. Like a certain color of floss for a project, thread, basting spray. Something!

That`s all! that is incredible! you are so impressive! You are not the only one. I went looking through my tools and I don`t know how many applique pins I have, maybe I thought they weren`t going to make them anymore.
Your cheddar quilt just looks awesome

LOL I too can be added to the list of "having way too much stuff" but I too will not stop adding to that stuff. It is a sickness I say.

LOL! I hear you on the fabric front. I too have an overflowing stash. I'm trying to work through it, but I doubt I'll make it in this lifetime. :P

Happy bowties! It sounds like your baskets will keep you busy for a bit-- that is going to be a fun quilt! :)
