GETTING BACK TO SEWING

I guess the title is a little misleading as i have been sewing all through the holidays just not a lot of it...lets see first i finished my maze quilt with the green border.....

then i worked on my new contemporary blocks...i have 40 of those now...it will be ongoing for quite some time...i cant seem to do chain sewing with those..i have to do an individual block at a time as i dont want them all the same...the effect will be similar to the quilt above with random next to each other only in fall colors....

i now have 2 things lined up for machine quilting...you saw the blue table topper in a previous post and i made this runner....

 it is kind of different but i used the star and 9 patch pattern from the quilter cache block i made in a challenge to make this one..have both of those to finish....

i kind of took a few days and just piddled away the hours thinking of new projects and just relaxing when i should have been working....but everyone does that now and then, right?? lol....

i have a quilt ladies meeting this week so for show and tell i am going to take the 'maze' quilts and the other color study quilts i made from the same colors to show...i have 1 small quilt of those left to finish and it will all be complete....i did learn a few things about color while doing these so it was worth all of it....

both quilt frames are empty right now but i am going to change that soon as i clear off the dining table so i can lay out more....i have been dragging my feet again on that lol...but i need to do it  so i can work on them in the evening....

next week i hope to spend the whole week on making string blocks...now that will be iffy because after so many they start to bug me spending so much time and it seems like i get nowhere fast lol...so we will see how i get along with them...i might have to alternate with something else...maybe a new block....???? lol....

well it feels good to get back to sewing at my snails pace...no hustle or bustle just relaxing sewing like it like it...but for now its coffee time....more later....
