Another "Snow" Day

The weather/chill index is so cold that we have another "Snow" day.  So guess what?  I'm sewing again today.

I finished 2 of my Maple Leaf blocks.  Two more to go.

After the last two are finished, my Sampler blocks will be caught up.  Whoo Hoo!  Next class is coming up, so I'm excited to have this up to date before I get the next batch of blocks.

Rolling Squares

Rolling squares blocks are done.

And I am in the process of cutting out the next block, Maple Leaf.

I made bonus half square triangles from the rolling squares blocks.  I have been trimming them up as I go, a la Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  She is cutting her scraps as she finishes a project.  So I'm taking a cue from that and staying on top of the bonus HSTs.

I have a small tin, about 3 x 5 in size that I have thrown them into during previous projects.  I'm now working at trimming these up and placing them in the proper bin, based on their size.  Someday I'm going to make a HST project from these.

One Done

Well, I have one done.  I think I'm going to love the pop this block will give to the quilt.

Back To Work

It's back to work today.  But I did accomplish a few things that I wanted to do yesterday.  First up, I finished these 3 blocks for my sampler quilt.

And I cut the next set of blocks out.

You may not be able to see it, but there is yellow hidden underneath the coral and gray triangles.

I also cleaned a little in the sewing room.  And I caught up on a couple of shows I had DVR'd

Snow Day! Sew Day!

It was announced yesterday that because of the storm coming through, that school will be closed.  So a Snow Day becomes a Sew Day for me.

I stopped at the local quilt shop, Cut Up & Quilt, on my way home yesterday to pick up fabric I needed for the sampler quilt.  I know, most people go to the grocery store.

Sewing, sewing, cleaning, sewing...Oops! How did that cleaning get in there?

I did a little reorganizing.

Since I have my good machine on the kitchen table from when I was quilting my sister in law's quilt, I decided to leave it there and work on another quilt that I have some quilting done on.

I set up my travel machine in my sewing room and am doing the piecing of the Churn Dash blocks on it. I did get a little sewing done on the first block.
