Look who has found some time to sew............................

Well just a couple of quick photos to prove to you all that I have found some sewing time this week.
Spent a few hours Sunday morning working on 3 paper bag quilts that had been sitting around here for a little while, can't share them as it might spoil the surprise for those involved.
Then I managed to write up a couple of weeks on my 365 Challagne quilt and sew on 3 more rows, this is a photo of how it is looking. I am very pleased with the result so far, its not a very good photo but I am sure you can get the idea.
Then last night I made up this flannel quilt using a pattern called Log Cabin Star by Kansas Trouble Quilters, great quilt for a man, and so so easy, from start to finish in less then 2 hours. Thats my type of quilt. I am actually thinking I might put another 6" border around the quilt just to add a bit of size, I will share a finished photos of it soon.


I ve also been working on a doll for my very good friend Tanya for her Birthday that was last Monday, will share a photo as soon as I finish her.


I love weeks like this, when I can sit and stitch, life runs smooth without a hitch.

Hello Kerry,

Thank you for placing a photo of your 365 Challenge quilt. You have done a lot. I started April 30th and have finished five rows now.
I like the stripes of fabric you usebetween the rows.
The log cabin block is very much for a man. Beautiful !

Wow, the log cabin quilt is beautiful. Do you sell the pattern? I could make it very Canadian!!! The mind boggles. Im glad you had time to sew. I have all the time in the world but no motivation at the moment.

So nice when you get a chance to sew - it's good for the soul I think! Most days are just packed with life in general and yours moreso, but just look what you've done - fabulous! esp. the log cabin.

So pleased you have had a chance to sew. Your journal quilt looks gorgeous. I love that you have added color to it.

Have you stitched the lettered in your quilt. I've noticed lots of people have done it in permanent marker ? Which seems such an odd thing too do. Yours is looking beautiful ~ love Julia x
