Quilting, Not So Much

2.gifA rainy day, but I get to sew and quilt!!!

Wearing multiple hats this week, I have been working longer than normal hours.  So, hence not so much quilting this past week. Well this is what I have accomplished this week.

My progress on "Boxy Stars" is coming along. I got this pattern from Bonnie Hunter's (BH) website. It is listed here under the free patterns tab. I am adding the sashing and corner stones. I have even sewn a few completed rows together. My focus this weekend is on completing this top! I am soooo close, it should not difficult to do. 

My goal for this weekend is to load my "String Geese" quilt top. I made this top using men's shirts purchased from Goodwill.  This pattern can also be found on BH's website. It is made using long strips. A nice, simple no brainer top.

I am continuing to work on my hexies, one more to add to my stack. Just so you know, I haven't had the energy to do any stitching while waiting for the light. Not even to work on them at lunchtime. I have been working through lunch or at a meeting the entire week.

My previous post about the charity quilt that came home with me in February for me to complete....well, I received a phone call thanking me for my participation. I was told that they like to personally thank each person that sends in a quilt. I was also given a website to see where my quilt went. I was a little surprised that I was called

Last but not least, I am continuing to cut my 1 1/2" squares for the swap. I am about halfway there!

I hope everyone enjoys this special weekend, however you may celebrate it!!!

Until next time.........
