It's Raining, it's Pouring....

Phew, can't believe how much rain we've had since yesterday morning! My poor daughter of 16 is at a church camp too!

Good thing is that this weather is excellent for getting some sewing done!

First off I did my block swap for the month.  Teena (my partner for this month) requested an Ohio Star in green and blues. It will be in the mail tomorrow. Here is just a sneak peak.

Next I finished quilting and binding my Jelly Roll quilt from the previous posting. Just did some freemotion quilting all over and used the same fabric for the backing and binding, a beautiful Marcus fabric called Civil War Tribute Collection.

Then at 9.30pm last night (!) I started a little baby blanket for someone at church. It is a little cotton and  flannel blanket, using the self binding mitred corner method. It came out ok for a first go. Sure the baby won't mind the little imperfections.

Hmmm..... let's see, I must just get something else done this afternoon.... maybe i should think about feeding my family too!


  1. The jelly roll quilt turned out great and the bunny rug is lovely.

  2. You certainly produced didn't you! Great work all round! :)
