More distractions of the quilty kind

Hello everyone!  I'd like to welcome Tracee, a big thank you for joining!

I did a little work on my Cool Blues quilt yesterday, and things were going along pretty smoothly until I broke my rotary cutter...yup, that's right, I broke the sucker. I was cutting some of my white fabric when the cutter seized...there was no moving that blade, no way, no how.  Looks like I'm making a trip to my favourite quilt store today. ;-)  So, no updates on the Cool Blues quilt as I had hoped, but, I did find a few more unfinished projects that I missed yesterday.

I had all but forgotten about these blocks I had made this summer, the fabric is from Robyn Pandolph's Canadian Cottage series.

The blocks are made from two packs of charm squares - easy peasy.
I bought two jelly rolls recently, with plans to make a log cabin type quilt.

Here's a better shot - isn't this fabric yummy?

I found this in my orphan block pile.
Decided it needed a little something - done before the rotary cutter gave up the ghost.
That's better, now I have four blocks to play with.

Here's an update on my small triangle block, it's getting bigger, but it's slooooow going.  The blocks are 1.5 inches.

A little scrappy 'fabric' ready to be cut.

See you tomorrow!


  1. Wow! Quilting is one thing I'd like to do more of. I really don't have much experience other than tying a few quilts.

    Did you get snow this weekend? We did here in Edmonton. In fact, it is still snowing a bit.

  2. Good morning Mary! Thankyou for the warm welcome. Your blog is lovely. I just love the Robyn Pandolph's fabrics they are so me, I can't wait to see the finished product.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
