Just Made the Deadline

I finally sorted my Sewing Room and am so thrilled. It only took most of March to do. I had to come the realization that I have a lot of fabric. When you're shuffling things around, it doesn't seem like it's out of control. When you have to box it up to add/remove furniture, it's another story.

I am reaffirming my pledge to not purchase any more fabric for the rest of the year. (Said after I placed an order today to use my expiring vouchers at Pink Castle fabrics. I couldn't let that deal go!) I am done with online fabric shopping. For real this time.

Now that I have my long desired design wall in place, it's on! I still have to figure out how to get more time to sew but that's another problem for another day. I'll share pics of my room later.

So, I also needed to make my BOM for my Stash Bee hive due in March. Since I didn't even have a place to sew for weeks, I was able to work on it last night and this morning. Finally.

I just made the deadline!

Here's my March BOM for hive #6:
Super Scrappy Sunny Day block
I love that I was able to chain piece each section as I went and whipped it together pretty quickly. This was a lot of fun to make for Melodee.

Hope you've been making a dent in your stash.
Enjoy your week!

City Sampler Blocks 9-24

Happy Sunday!

It's been a while since I've been able to post but I wanted to share more blocks that have been completed.

Tula Pink's City Sampler: 100 Modern Quilt Blocks

In my quest to make all 100 blocks, this book has kept me sane over the last few weeks. Since work and new responsibilities with the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild have taken up a lot of my waking hours, I cherish the times I've been able to take breaks to sew these 6.5 inch blocks.

I'm not giving titles to these blocks so I'll just list them by number.

As I add these blocks to my complete pile, I'm pretty excited about how they will look together. You'll have to check back in December to see the finished set.

Hope you are well. Best wishes for the week ahead.
