I've finally got some time to give my blog a little attention! With the start of school and crazy potty training, Wednesday's have been hectic and I've forgotten or just didn't have time to post. Ugh.

I've still had some sewing time thankfully! I've finished several bee blocks. Free piecing the "girlie" block was really fun despite being way out of my comfort zone.


I have also mailed out packages for my own month in one of my bees. Here is my test block. Can't for them to start arriving in the mail.

I also finished quilting both of my Star Wars quilts, they are ready for hand binding. I'm hoping to have posts about their finish in the near future. I did however, finish these pillowcases. Yay!

That's it for now! I'm linking up!

Hi there! I'm sorry for neglecting my blog! I've been super busy (stressed out) and for whatever reason I haven't gotten my act together to post anything. I've gotten bee blocks done, my Star Wars quilts are basted and have a productive weekend ahead. I promise I'll post again very soon.

Well I'm feeling rather unproductive in terms of sewing projects. But alas, I have a list of excuses, stay-cation, redecorating, start of school, waiting for fabric and knitting. They all have gotten in the way of quilting.

I am however about to cut into this Star Wars fabric to go into the newly decorated boys room.

Here are my plans for their quilts. I want it to have a comic strip feel instead of doing chunky blocks. The plan is to stagger the top four fabrics in 24" x 36" pieces and 24" x 18" pieces with 1.5" strips in between. (Three rows of 24" x 54", makes about a 54" x 75" quilt) I feel like it's a lot of black though. Do you think I should use black as the strips or Kona Lagoon? I was thinking of using black for the strips and Lagoon as the binding but naturally, I'm second guessing myself.

I'm using the yellow/black Star Wars fabric and the solid yellow for the back. Or then again the yellow might look good as the strips in between the big prints....decisions....decisions...

Would love some input.

This Friday I'm going the Wisconsin Quilt Expo in Madison. Hopefully I'll find some good fabric. In any case, the company will be good!

Linking up!
