ANOTHER QUILT STARTED

I thought i would pop in and see what was going on while my dishes were soaking....yes i let them pile up while i was sewing lol....not sure that i mentioned that nothing much gets done here when i get a sewing streak and this one is proving to be a whopper....either that or i mixed a little too much coffee w/caffeine into my decaf this morning....either way i am lovin' it!.....

I should stay out of my fabric cabinet....when looking yesterday i found a piece of fabric right for a little boys quilt..it looks kind of like streaked denim and i found red to go with it and some navy blue...so i proceeded to make some blocks.....
its a variation of either shoo fly or hole in barn door...geez i cant remember which ...i always get them mixed up...i just know the triangles point different for each lol...i wish i had some more fabric that would have contrasted it more but i didn't and i didn't want to vary it too much with other colors...today i worked on it and got the top done ....i had just enough of the mottled blue for the back...its in the frame now and i will work on it tonight....

i got the other quilt done yesterday....sorry no pic yet but it will come this week...going to try to finish couple other things too....

of course there is more....lol....the 4sq-4patch is in the works too...now that i have decided to make it big instead of 2 smaller quilts to keep i will be working on it too....i have made up a section to see how it was progressing and i like it for a scrap quilt....much better than the ugly green one the 4 patches were before i tore it up....here is picture of both  judge for yourself lol


and now the ugly green one that used to be


for me there is no comparison...not a big lover of stripes or certain colors of green of which is the border...so no wonder the 4 patches didn't stand a chance in this quilt...but i will like the top one better...i do already lol...

my poor sewing room looks like tornado turned around in that room....if i can stop sewing long enough i need to straighten it up....at least make an effort to put fabric back in cabinet...3 giant stacks are sitting ready to topple over on the edge of sewing machine arm...and i got another order today and will need to wash and iron that and what i didn't get done the last order....now i am going to try not to look at fabric in stores or on line for at least 3 months into January 2013......

the family room looks like a small quilt shop right now....i have had quilts laying all over trying to figure out which of them goes to the 3 new additions to my great nephews.... all 3 are in the same family and all babies were born this past month lol...wonder if they planned it that way....i am afraid the kids wont care for it when they get bigger...most want their own day lol....

well the dishes are calling lol....and i think i will get my mac salad made while in the kitchen...fish and chips for supper tonight too along with fresh strawberries....hope for a good movie or something to watch so i can work on the new quilt...maybe i can set another record this week.....more later....
