Oops, I did it again…

I was so proud of myself, getting my quilting projects back in order…. but then… something happened…

As I mentioned yesterday,  I spent Saturday afternoon with Mom. You see, Relic had a vet appointment that morning (just vaccinations – no worries), and since the vet was right around the corner from her house, I told her I’d get Dave to drop me off afterwards. Mom’s been trying to get her sewing room closet under control for a while, and sometimes it helps to have a helping hand.

But when I got there, Mom told me she hadn’t had a chance to get bins for organization yet, so we decided to have a sewing day instead. Luckily, I’d brought some fabric with me. I’d just bought a new  batik charm pack and was excited to show her.


You see, back when I made my brother the Deep Sea Star quilt, I’d pulled all the blue and teal out of it to make stars. I was left with a pile of autumny batiks, and when I saw this charm pack on Craftsy, I knew it would pair well with the leftovers.

I was planning on making a small Disappearing Nine-Patch with them. While Mom worked away on her sewing project…


(a new top for Dad’s Argo), I sat at a machine beside her (a definite advantage of her vintage machine collection!) and started assembling the nine patches.


After a couple hours of sewing, she had the Argo top done, and I had all my nine patches together and ready for cutting


I absolutely love the colours, and how well all these beautiful batiks look together. I think it’s going to look even more amazing once it gets all chopped up and reassembled.

Of course, that’s going to have to wait until I get at least one of my other quilt tops together. I had a good excuse for starting this one… but I can’t let things get out of hand!

  1. It’s beautiful Valerie! I love the progression of the project, being left with the autumnal colors after you pulled out the teals and finding the complimentary charm pack! I am a huge fan of batik! It’s really lovely and what a great way to spend the day with Mom!
