Sewing day

swoon block quilt
After gardening and mowing the lawn in very warm temperatures yesterday, today I am running around the house closing up windows and putting on a sweatshirt. So with cooler temps it is a good day to sew. I really do believe that Mother Nature is in menopause!!!
I finished my swoon block quilt that will be a sample for a demo I am doing later this year at guild. The binding is on and I will be doing some relaxing slow stitching later this evening with Kathy and the gang, to get that project off my table. I did bias binding with that red plaid...just love how it looks!
these haven't even dented my box of scraps

I also got to sew on some very tiny blocks four inch unfinished. Thanks to my buddy Kathy, I got hooked on this  quilt along at Temecula Quilt Company. I have a small shoe box of batik scraps, I got from a friend and I am using them for these little blocks. It really amazes me how time flies when I am working at my sewing machine.

I have had two meetings this past week. At one I am on program and we are creating an agenda for the coming year. Then at the other meeting, I am the president...and that is a whole new ballgame for me. Needless to say I think the coming guild year, that starts in September is going to be a fun and busy one! You will definitely hear more about all that in the coming months. So I will also have lots of new projects to start and things to get ready to show. Stay tuned!!!


  1. Love your Temecula blocks in batiks!
    And that bias plaid binding is perfect!
    Hope you're enjoying your binding!

  2. Your Swoon block is very pretty. I am going to be president of my guild next year starting in January. I'll be looking forward to your ideas and seeing if I can implement for my guild.

    1. One of the things I want to do is get back to quilting. We have been doing so much charity work and although I know it is needed and wanted...we quilters have so many things we want to do too!
      Also want to appreciate our members who might teach. They are as good as those expensive ones from out of town that cost too much!! Good luck to you.

  3. Love your fabric choices for the swoon block!!

  4. I am in a fat 1/4 club. 10 fat quarters plus sashing and backing was all it took to make this one.
