So Much Going On in the Sewing Room!

Hi y'all!  Have y'all been as busy, busy, busy as I have in the sewing room?  So many fun projects going on and even more coming!  Let's catch you up on my progress.  First up, here are last week's blocks for the 365 Block Challenge 2016...

365 Block Challenge - Feb Wk 3

That maple leaf block is seriously bugging me.  We are still working on 3-1/2" blocks so I know it will be lost in the shuffle.  Trying to let that be enough.  Next up is the blocks for The Splendid Sampler.  Here's block 2...

Splendid Sampler Block 2

I haven't decided on the antennae for the butterflies yet.  May go back and add them.  Here's block 3...

Splendid Sampler Block 3

I truly love this block.  This quilt is going to be for my brother and sister-in-law.  They have 3 children and lost their first so this truly seems to represent their family.  It makes me smile. :)  We are finally starting to get an idea of what it will look like when it comes together!

Splendid Sampler first 3 blocks

I love this setting!  I'm still working on the tutorial.  I started taking the pics for it Sunday but forgot to take half of them!  Darn it!  So it will be up later this week.  Next up is the block for my Project 48...

Project 48 block 7

This quilt is looking so cute!!!  Just wait, I'll give you an update next week, after the 8th block.  Next up is the Ugly Christmas Sweaters QAL.  Here are the 3 blocks that Lorna posted last week...

Ugly Christmas Sweaters - Complementary Blocks

I'm having a blast with this quilt along.  I can't wait to see it finished in a few months.  Thanks again Lorna for a fun design.

So what have you been up to?  I'll be linking up at Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times, BOM's Away at What a Hoot, Main Crush Monday at Cooking Up Quilts, Design Board Monday at Bits and Bobs, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story, Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday, and Sew Cute Tuesday at Blossom Heart Quilts.


  1. Love how you are doing The Splendid Sampler blocks! I was waiting till the end to decide but knowing ahead of time and starting as I go would be so much smarter.

  2. You sure do have a lot going on-like most of us quilters! Can't wait to see more :-)

  3. I adore your ugly sweater quilt.... Looking forward to more progress!

  4. You have been busy with some really fun projects! Love how different they are.


  5. Wow, so much creativity in one post! I love your sweaters. That's just the cutest idea, and I wish I'd started it, but I'm so far behind now - and I have too many things going on anyway. I do love the setting you are using for the Splendid Sampler blocks. Your 365 is moving along nicely. What bothers you about the leaf block?

  6. Haha! The Ugly Sweaters project tickles my funny bone. :D Can't believe how much good stuff is here with these different quilts. I really, really love that block 3 for the Splendid Sampler.
