Quilt along blocks 4

Here are my first two color combinations. I don't like the layout of this block, it basically used flying geese, (but as half square triangles). If you look closely this is almost the same pattern as I posted last week. I liked that better with triangles.And here are all 8 blocks I have finished so far!!

Another quilt a long ;)

I LOVE IT!! I found another quilt a long ;) here is the link it's a jelly roll quilt a long, but I am just going to use fabric from my stash, I think that I am going to put this with the second quilt a long I am doing, cause that won't have a lot of blocks either.I think I could have made better choices about what went in the middle. . .but we will see how it looks in the end ;)

I also spent Thursday night sewing. I was working on some maverick stars from this site
This is Pepé helping me ;)
And here is a close up of one of the blocks.

More sewing this weekend!

I have spent almost all of today sewing. Later comes the grading :(

Today I made:
a reusable bag
a head wrap for after the shower (no pictures of that)
block 3 of the quilt a long

So here are your pictures!Here is block 3 for the quilt swap!This is the reusable bag I made
It has nice lining, and it could technically be turned inside out!

The head wrap is for use after a shower. My host daughter has one, I thought it was pretty cool, and I had a small towel that I don't really use (too big for the kitchen too small for the bathroom) so the only part I had to sew was the top, because I used the edges of the towel.

I also got some work done on my next string x quilt, or my blocks for them!

Quilt along 2. . .

After finding the pinwheel sampler quilt a long, I decided to google quilt a long, to see what else I could find.

I found one and I decided to start it. . .So I will have quite a few different blocks started ;) But I am going to try to keep them very organized!

Here is a picture of the block I made tonight:I like this block! And the fabric, they are both from my stash. . .I am working on destashing as much as possible, especially since I have quite a bit of fabric that is just a little bit (less than a half a yard) left!
