Two Flimsies

I was able to get two flimsies made this weekend.  

The first one is the 2012 Designer Mystery.  
 The second was my Bonnie Hunter Cheddar Bow Ties.

I am so glad to have these made.  I will piece the backings and make the binding next week and put them away until I am able to either have them quilted or do them myself.

I dug out my traditional Dear Jane yesterday and started going thru the blocks.  I really don't like the background fabric I used.  I really hate some of the blocks I made.  I just don't like it and decided to scrap it.   I am going to dig out my Rainbow Jane instead, which I actually love and finish that one.  Here is a link to what I have done so far.

Well, that's it for this week.  I wish you all a great week.  I am praying for all those in Oklahoma that they are safe thru all the tornados going on right now.

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!

Club quilt

I didn't have that much sewing time this weekend.  Three good friends of mine piled in the car and we went shop hopping on Saturday.   It  was fun spending time with the girls and looking at all the pretty new fabrics.

I did manage to get my Jo Morton Club mini done.   (not quilted)  It measures 17" x 17".
I wonder if I will ever take a picture that isn't blurry.

Friday night I managed to finish the 9 patches I started last weekend.  Here are 40 more for a total of 80.

 I also made a few more cheddar bow ties but I didn't take a picture of them.   I need to start putting them all together and grow it into a quilt.  

I hope you all have a great week.
