Quilt or die

It’s been driving me crazy, but I haven’t been able to get in the sewing studio for almost two weeks. On Saturday, after running errands with Dave, I told him on Sunday he was to leave me alone. I was going to spend the whole day sewing.

And I did.

I got several things done. I’ll share one today, and the rest I’ll space out in other posts. Who knows when I’ll be able to get back into the studio.

First up was catching up on the Sewcialites quilt-a-long

Yeah… I went and joined another one. Well, I should say Burton joined… because it was one of his facebook friends that encourage us to do so.

The quilt-a-long is only three blocks in so far, but we were already two blocks behind.

We are using a fat quarter bundle called Catmosphere, with a few things from the stash added in. The block on the left was a little fiddly and time consuming, but the one on the right went together easy peasy.

Here it is with the first block in the quilt-a-long. And as you can see, Burton has a little apprentice. Lemmy is getting along swimmingly with Burton now, and he was thrilled to join in on the sewing session.

Friday we will get another block… and hopefully we won’t have to wait another two weeks to make it.

    Lucky you! I told The Mister the same thing and all it got me was a guilt trip. At least this Sunday there is an football game that starts at 9;30 am. That ought to buy me some time.

  2. That bottom square is really pretty —–well, ALL of them are, but that one is my favorite.

    Lemmy has such a cute face. Burton has some competition in the cutest cat contest. (In that one, a KITTEN will ALWAYS win.)

  3. Happy to see that Lemmy is acclimating well and that He and Burton are getting along. The blocks look great in your fabric selections. The flower block does look fiddly.
