Sit n stitch April 29

Pieces of my bowties, I have been working on these a lot, so they are kind of slowing down (since I don't have as many.  I want to count them up, but I know I am no where near being done!

I sewed some HST for my pinwheels for my quilt I am calling scraptacular.

And 16 patches to go with the pinwheels.


And this is what I decided to use for the border of my Celtic Solstice quilt.  I cannot WAIT to show pictures of it!! But it's too big for me (and I want a nice picture!) So when my husband gets home Thursday I will make him hold it!

I am linking up to work in progress Wednesday.

Celtic solstice


I got the top done!! Well minus the borders.  I am not sure what I will do for borders.  I am thinking about a thinner green border, then a wider purple border.

Sit n stitch

This isn't the exact picture from last night, but it's what I was working on. I need a LOT more square blocks.

I came home and Minnie was ready to play!

I sewed at home, while skyping with my husband last night. I'm working on sewing the Celtic solstice rows into a top, and borders for it. 

I decided to do a smaller layout, and add more borders to get the desired size.

Sit n stitch

Every Tuesday for the past few weeks I have been going to a local quilt shop that does a sit n stitch every Tuesday.  These are my pictures from *last* Tuesday, things have been kind of crazy I haven't had time to write about what I've done!

I love having the table that my mother in law gave me! It makes things SO handy!

I brought Celtic Solstice to work on! it's flying now that I am only putting blocks together into rows!! I was going to do 7 x 9 layout, but those blocks took SO much work, I am just doing 5 x 7 and I will add borders as necessary to make it big enough.

Block Swap Adventure

 I ended up having two partners for the month of March.  Sam  was my partner.  She had a few blocks to choose from.  I chose this one: 

And this is the kitty she sent me. I don't feel like the colors are true to what she sent.  It's a gorgeous purple!

 Swaps for April have already been sent out, but you can still sign up!!!!

My partner for the month was Alida.  She sent me this little kitty:

And she gave me a few choices, and one was a snails trail, so of course I picked that one!!

April partners have been sent out, but you can still sign up for May!

Goals check in

1. Post in my blog 7 times a month.  Well March I posted 14 times!! woohoo!! Hopefully April I can keep it up (school will keep me busy, and I am starting a part time job).  But I plan on going to sit n stitch at the local quilt shop!

2. Finish 2 quilts on my home machine that are not just straight stitching. I think I might change this one to finish 10 quilts this year.  Which I think is EXTREMELY doable since I will hopefully have a long arm to rent soon!

3. Finish 5 UFOs.  Haven't started on that.  Let's see which 5 should I do? Scott's tee shirt quilt, my UNI quilt, my "quillow" (I'm not sure how great it will look as a quillow), my Sudoku quilt.  That's 4.  I will have to look through my UFO box.  I have 2 others, that really just need to be quilted that I see more as a project in progress.
