I've got a kajillion projects started, ufo's out the kazoo and yet, I started a little quilt top but I had to do it. It kind of just happened.....
I cleaned up my sewing room this week. My hubby is out of town so I had plenty of time to stay in my room into the wee hours of the morning. It kind of makes it hard to get up in the morning for work but I just pretend like I'm awake at my desk. I'm pretty sure the boss didn't notice. lol
So, while cleaning I fould a little charm pack that I bought from Cozy Cottage at Road to CA. It was pretty and flowery so I put it up on the design wall and just fiddled with it, moving fabrics around until I liked them. It was only around 35 charms so the top wasn't very big. Maybe baby quilt size. I decided if I put it on point, I could make it just a tiny bit bigger. Also on the design wall were two rows of 30's charms for a charity quilt.
I finished sorting and cleaning on Tuesday night. Wednesday night I sewed the 30's charms together and finished the little charity top. I had found some other 10" fabric squares that were leftover from a backing so I sewed those together too. Now I just have to quilt these and I think I'll donate them to CHOC hospital, where my daughter works.
Okay, so now....... I felt like I couldn't function in my sewing room. It was too clean. LOL I should've pulled fabric out of the closet and thrown it on the floor so I could work! :o) I thought I would start working on the Storm at Sea quilt that I worked on at the retreat so I could get that quilted and mark it off my ufo list. But, I needed to put it on the design wall. The floral charms were still there and I knew if I took them down, it would take me too long to get them all "right" again. So I pulled out a white dot tone on tone fabric and put the top together. The good news is went together quick and it looks cute. Guess I better get back over to Cozy Cottage and see if they have a coordinating print for a border!!
All that for this little tiny quilt. It measures 33 x 45 so it definitely needs a border. Oh, and the bad news is it's 1:25 a.m. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
It's my FAVORITE time of the year!!
