THIS AND THAT.......

 Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday is a simple blog post featuring a photo which conveys a message that speaks for itself without using words.


 Anyone doing the See ya Later Alligator  Blog Hop?  Which is about something to do with traveling.  Yesterday I cut my pattern pieces and started assembling them.  Here's a peek at what I'm doing.

My brother-in-law has a girlfriend, she is from Hawaii.  She recently went to Hawaii to visit her folks.  While she was there she got me some fabric...and I can't wait to jump in and use them.  Any suggestions on what to do with these....I'm stumped at this time...so any help would be appreciated.


I'll be working on my Pink Baskets tonight.  I need to cut some 6 1/2" muslin blocks.  And cut out some purple baskets.  Also some more checked green for the strips.  So that should keep me busy.....and when I get tired of that, I'll work on my tr.....for See Ya Later Alligator. 

And I'll be working on my tr.....for Friday Night With Friends....so hop over and join in.  That's is for today.....have a great....

QUILTY STUFF.........

 As I've been feeling really crappy this week, there hasn't been too much quilting going on here. I have a To-Do Box of projects I"m working on.....so when the mood strikes me I can pull something out and start working on it.

 But I did start putting my pink and purple baskets together.  I've got 2 rows done.  These were done with some scrap Pink and Purple I had.  I'm hoping I have enough to make a small quilt.

And I put a few stitches in my Hand Picked block for my Hand Picked Quilt.  This quilt is a lot of scraps I have of odds and ends fabrics.  With a few new colors I've added.  And there are some orange ones I can use for my Rainbow Scrap I'm working on.


Do any of you, keep a Quilt Diary or calendar!  I have both...my calendar I use to write what I've worked on for that day.  This is July's calendar.  As you can see each day is full.  I've also left empty squares for notes about anything to do with what I'm working on.

I've also got a  list of fabrics I need to pull and a list of blocks I need to make.  So I guess I better get busy and start cutting fabric.  Have a wonderful...

1.  Tye Red Work Quilt

2. More Pink and Purple Baskets

3. Work on Hand Picked. 

The Red Work Quilt is still in the hoop waiting to be tied.  I worked on other "stuff" this week.  

I also got some Pink and Purple baskets done.  And I cut and pinned my center for my basket quilt  It's going to have flowers in it....I'm going to try something new for this...make some crocheted flowers along with fabric.  I may even slip in a fake flower.

 

And I got more blocks cut for my Hand Picked Quilt.  Now all I need to do is get my light box out and trace the patterns on them.

 This is the pattern I need to trace onto the squares.  These are only 4 1/2" squares
