See What I Did This Week...

Seems to me that I've been quite productive this week especially since I worked 68 hours...
Come along with me and I'll show you what I've been working on...
First we have the beginnings of my 9-patch that I've been working on along with CMQ








...these 3 pictures are the first 2 strips to my quilt minus 1 square on each strip...lost those in the photo shoot (where are my photographer daughters when I need them??? Hmmmm could it be that one of them lives in California and the other one lives in Minnesota and I don't live in either one of those states...). When this quilt is finished it will be 10 blocks by 10 blocks plus sashing and borders. The blocks are 6" finished and the sashing is 1" finished, but I'm not sure how I'm going to do the borders yet, so I don't know just what the finished size will be. I have all of my blocks made and some of the sashing cut...yet another LIW (Lady In Waiting) to add to my list;)
Number 2 is an apron that I've wanted to make for a long time, but was unable to find the pattern. I was out shopping on Saturday and not only found the pattern, but found some fabric to go with the pattern...

How do you like the Zebra and Turquoise together???

Number 3 is for a swap that I'm participating in...

Any guesses on just what it might be???
The pink fabric under the striped fabric is the 'wrong side' so it doesn't give the true shade of pink. It does have more blue in it than the stripe, but I think it will work out just fine...at least I hope so;)



Fourth...

A few more grannies to go with the yellow
ones I posted about in my last post...



We'll find out this month if my youngest daughter is having a girl or a boy, and next month we'll find out what my middle daughter is having;)

#5

These are my strips of fabric all sewn together, cut into squares and ready to go for the next step in the mystery quilt I'm making along with Dana and hundreds, yes hundreds, of others over at Old Red Barn

Tomorrow Dana will reveal just exactly how all of these squares are supposed to go together. Can't wait for that;)

And last, but not least...

This is a picture of a friend of mine from work. We had a baby shower for her on Thursday. I made her a little quilt and had Leslie
make a pair of matching baby shoes. Can you see them there in Debbie's left hand?? They are so tiny and adorable;) They stole the show and got lots of Oooooooo's and Aaaaahhhhhh's;)

The top of the quilt is flannel and the back is polar fleece.
I quilted around the moons on the blue squares and did free hand stars on the yellow squares. I'm sorry you can't see them in this picture...Oh yeah, and the back of the quilt is the same shade of blue as the lighter shade of blue on the moon squares.
I can't figure why the colors in some of my pictures just don't look like they should...
Some day I'm going to seriously have to read the book of instructions that came with my camera...I'm not a techy by any means...bet ya couldn't guess that;)
I was off this weekend, but don't have another day off until Father's Day and that's 2 weeks away...so I think that my progress is going to be slowed some.

I hope that you all have a wonderful and productive week;)
Happy Sewing;)

WOW ..... you sure have been productive. How are you getting all that done and working too?? I love all the peeks to what you have going on, and 9 patches are my all time favorite. How fun you met Marcie, and that is quite the connection!
