What I have been working on....

Hi everyone, 

It's been super busy for me the last week. My mother-in-law moved in with us this week. It was a last minutes decision that was made on June 22. We had to pack and clean out her apartment, sell a bunch of stuff and get her set up at our house. She has not been well for a while now. So, I had a feeling this was going to happen soon. 

In between all this activity, I did give myself some me time to sew. A lot of the sewing was done at 4:00 am, because I couldn't sleep. I would get a bunch of sewing in before anyone else got up. It was a great stress reliever and allowed me to keep going during the day. 

First, I worked on my mini 3.5 inch spool blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017. My goal for this project is to make 30 each month. But, I fell behind on some colours. But, I managed to make 30 yellow ones and 34 green ones. 

I also made some yellow plus blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017. 

This weekend I decided to pull out a UFO to work on as well. I chose the Idaho Square Dance quilt by Bonnie K. Hunter. 
I had all the Idaho square dance blocks done. So I worked on the log cabin blocks. I got all those done. I just need to make the pieced setting triangle to make the centre of the quilt. 

I would have liked to lay these blocks out on the floor to take a picture. But my puppy thought it was a game and kept spreading the blocks everywhere. Oh well, next time. 

Well that's it for now. 




Your fur baby was just helping you with the layout--and thought the quilt would be larger than it really is!!!!
YOu have some nice sewing projects going there--
enjoy the moments, di

I love all these sunny yellows you've been working with. Everything looks great and I hope everything works out with your mother in law staying with you.

You mean the Quality Control puppy? Just trying to be helpful-not! Your spool blocks are so sweet and Idaho Square Dance looks like a terrific project.
