A little sewing is better than none

Hello everyone!  Thought I'd show you some of the progress I'm making on two of my projects:  the Cool Blues & my charm square stars. 

I spent this past Wednesday over at my friend Sue's house and we did some quilting, as we usually do...she has been a godsend during the renovation.  She welcomes me into her home, provides a wonderful lunch and I bring the eclairs...mmmh, I think I'm getting the better deal!!  I managed to make all of the hourglass blocks I need for my Cool Blues quilt and made one more block on my charm square stars project...here's the link for the pattern, in case you missed it last time...

Enjoy!

I tested out the pattern, using Dilly Dally fabric from Me & My Sister Designs and some white Kona solid...I really liked the results.
 
Two more squares and six to go.  I only have two charm square packages and cannot find another in any of the quilt stores in town...so I'm making a smaller version instead.
 
Here are a few of the blue and white blocks made for my Cool Blues quilt. 

This has been sitting in my sewing room for a few months and it's time to git'er done...this is my second PhD project and I would love to finish it by the end of the month!

  1. Both projects are very pretty! I'd say you've done well considering your house is in chaos. Good luck with the completions...
