I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Been sewing

WooHoo!  I played hookey today and it felt great!  Okay, not completely.  I did some laundry, too. 

I quilted some on the Kaleidoscope quilt.  This is the back of the quilt so you can see the motif I'm using.  It's a high loft batting and extra long queen size.  It's fun, but stressing on any arm injuries.

Then, I sorted the 70s fabrics I have because I keep tripping over the box.  While doing that, I found some fantastic blue for the Spanish Steps quilt that I'm piecing together.  So, I had to cut those up, too.

I also decided to enter this month's Block Lotto at the last minute.  So, I really quickly made 4 blocks for that.  I hope I win.  I've got plans for the blocks already.  If I don't win, then I'll just have to make more blocks.

And while we're on the topic of fabric, look what I bought while on my trip to Pennsylvania!  I have no idea what to do with the heron, but I just had to have it!

And now my arm is tight and sore, so I won't be quilting for a few days.

Great fabrics! Looks like you had fun. I like your asterisk blocks too!

The quiltung looks great too, but take it easy on the arm - said as I sit here icing my shoulder. Guess I exercised too vigorously last night. *looking sheepish*
