Finally, some sewing!

Things have been hectic since before Easter so I feel like I am still catching up. There are still wedding plans being made for my daughter so that takes time away from the hobbies that I love but I "suppose" a wedding IS more important. LOL

Last night I swapped out some blocks that I had received from a swap on Backporch Friends. This is a great scrappy block. I mentioned it some time ago and you can read about it here or an older post here. The block directions are from a McCall's flyer that I get for their quilt magazine. It's called Scrappity Do Dah. These are some of my blocks on my design wall just put up next to each other. I don't know if I'll get these sewed together in the near future. More than likely, they'll go back in a baggie. I have some bridesmaid bags to make so I think they might need to go "in the bin" with so many other swapped blocks. :o(

This is the second time we did this swap so we could get enough blocks for a bigger quilt. The picture above is some of the first and second swap. I only sewed about 84 blocks this time around. Last time, I did 120. I should get a nice size quilt from them all.

Off to get a few more things done before bedtime. Where does the time go???

My 2 daughters are both married so I know the fun & excitement & craziness that goes into these events. Enjoy ~

Can't wait to see your daughters wedding pictures in the near future.
