WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU CAN'T SLEEP

It was pretty much a sleepless night last night...I got up at 1 am and worked on the posies for my granddaughters flower quilt....got these done...not much for 3 hrs of hand sewing but at least its more flowers for her quilt...

This meant that I slept late today so the day is slipping by fast so what gets done will be a plus....lots of wanna do's but we will see how far it goes lol....

Maybe I will finally decide whether to put a border on my daughters fan quilt or not...its already 70x90 and more will put it over the edges of my tables and will be harder for me to pin...so have to decide soon....

Ok I am outta here gotta selvage what is left of the day and make it count....more later....

WIP- FAN QUILT MIGHT GET FINISHED THIS TIME

I have been having back trouble again but did manage to sort through some things in the sewing room....Among the things I found was fabric like my daughters fan quilt...I was lacking the bottom part of the fan but now can make her quilt bigger....she will be happy about that....It will be a bigger bed size now...not sure on border yet...

I was lacking 15 blocks of making it bed size but had the blocks started then I thought ran out of the fabric...so over the weekend I started finishing the blocks so it can be put together...

On Saturday I
received my order for back material and my granddaughters purple  fabric for the border on her flower garden quilt....I am set now for a lot of quilts so I am going to try not to order more fabric for quite awhile....

I worked out my sons scrap quilt...its a vertically brick put together diagonally....confused???....I will take pictures of it when I get the border on....have to make 47 more brick blocks to do that...more cutting for variety in the scrap....

Errands to do today so need to get another cup of coffee and get dressed and get out of here for a bit...2 stores to go to for groceries hope I don't irritate my back again.....more later....

STRINGS AND MORE STRINGS

This is what I have been doing the last couple days when time permitted...digging in my 'string' bin and making 4 1/2 inch blocks to be joined and make a 4 block, block....I plan on making 35 big blocks of 4 to make a quilt...I think I have 20 so far... not sure on border or not there is time to think on that one...I cant sit and make many of these at a time as I start to get nervous and have to quit...

I would like that bin to get down to half before I stop making blocks from it...I only want 1 bin of those things lol....and it doesn't take long for it to overflow....

Well I survived the clean up day lol....I threw out more than I thought I would want to part with and it was a good feeling but very emotional on some things that were my 2 husbands but time for them to go....and now its time for me to go...errands to do....more later....
