Day 39

Block 30

It's amazing how much progress one can make with unobstructed time.  (That could also be read "when one ignores household tasks that need to be done.")

Yesterday morning my 100-block count was at 23.  I made 5 more Friday ...


28 - needs a good pressing
... and 2 more today.

On our trip to NC last weekend we stopped at three shops and then hit another two in the Lake Junaluska (Waynesville, NC) area.  I was able to pick up several more grey and yellow FQs to add to my variety.  I also chose to include some conversation fabrics that I thought would be fun to find and reminisce over when I'm old-er and gray-er.

Baby Blocks

In future blocks watch for more Halloween and Star Wars.  I have cut 10 more blocks and have a good shot at catching up by the end of the week.  But I REALLY need to catch up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge first!


  1. Absolutely, one must ignore household tasks in favor of sewing! :) That's going to be such a great quilt with all the different fabrics - all held together in the stars!

  2. I like that "old-er" and "gray-er"
    Great stars

  3. Interesting fabrics in grays and yellows you have found. Love those picture perfect points on your star blocks.

  4. Great progress! I am in favor if ignoring household tasks too. One must have the correct priorities :)

  5. I read a cartoon the other day that said, “A clean house is the sign of a broken sewing machine!” I’m glad your sewing machine isn’t broken! Your blocks look great.

  6. "My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance." Your hundred blocks are coming along!

  7. Congrats on all the progress! Housework isn't going anywhere, wouldn't be nice if that weren't true. I'd be happy to ignore it more frequently in that case.
