Getting Back to Sewing!

Things got really busy around here for a while and gets what had to give.......Yep........My sewing time!
But things have settled back down again and I'm catching back up in my sewing room.

I finished my May UFO, at least got it made into a quilt top before all the busyness started. It was a mess when I pulled it out back at the beginning of May
1 Completed block, 2 partial blocks, and pieces for several other blocks, but missing pieces and a pattern!
Yes, it was a challenge. However once I got going on it, it wasn't too hard to figure out. I remembered some froggy fabric I had bought for the border (10 years ago!) and I still had it. I made some cool eyes for my frogs, taking my cue from the frogs on the border fabric.

And TA-DA................A froggy quilt top!


Now that I had time to get back to sewing, the first project I had to get to was my Scrap Squad quilt. I had started it before all the craziness started, but it got abandoned when the demands on my time increased. It only took a couple of days and I had a completed quilt. It will be posted on Quiltmakers Quilty Pleasures blog any day, but here's a sneak peak of a cute fishy!




And what to work on next?

Well there's only a few days left in June, but I thought I should at least pull out my June UFO. I found the blocks last night and put them up on my wall. It's actually a little further along than I remembered.
Only 2 blocks to go!
All these pieces are only fused on though, I still need to stitch them down. We'll see how far I get, even a little progress is better than none.

  1. Your June UFO is darling. So like the applique and the froggies are fun! Very intrigued about the fish - they look real. Thanks for sharing.
