what i'm working on....

Here's a look at what I'm working on this week:

I finished 4 of the strip quilt blocks and have 4 more in process, a look at what a 'big' block will look like - do you see the 'X' through the middle that forms when you put them together?

Here is one of the Robot blocks for my bigger guy - he wants a new quilt. It will have oranges, greys and blues. A bigger modern pattern - inspiration here.

And here is a new small system for organizing projects (instead of piles on my cutting table / ironing board) It will work for now. Top row: placemats / sailboat quilt. 2nd row: Strip quilt blocks / fabric. 3rd Row: Pillowcase / fabric backing / Improv quilt fabric.

I have 4 more placemats done and pinned ready for quilting and binding. A bigger look at my studio / sewing space tomorrow!

Love the robot block! Thanks for linking the inspiration. Have collected pieces of fabric for "my favorite things" quilts for the three oldest children, but never went through the process of cutting pieces for blocks. This would keep it doable, simple and provide a quilt before winter! Thanks! And keep the placemats coming so we can see the whole set! I'm seeing gifts for Moms and sisters-in-laws becoming a reality!

Your blog is soooo inspiring to encourage me to keep it simple and get up and sew in those little scraps of time between 4 children, home educating, lovin husband, building homebased businesses, keeping a nutritious, homecooked menu a reality, being a good neighbor, and trying to keep the place mostly liveable! Ohh, gotta pay the bills tonight before bed! Can work on a placemat after that! Motivation!
Thanks again and have a beautiful week! Enjoy!
