Another WIP.....

While there has been a lot of 

S...L....O.....W....... sewing here lately,

I have needed some 'instant gratification' 

(of the fabric sort) at the sewing machine!

After borrowing this book from my library 

earlier in the year....


 I decided I'd use my stash of 

chocolate and raspberry 

fabric to make these....

Constructed as an "S"...


or a "2"

or a "5"?


or my initials!

I have been playing with a layout....


Not sure how this is working yet...

It may need some sashing?

And on a side note...

I'd love your vote in the Scrap Quilt section 


My quilt is at the start....


has been nominated in the Viewer's Choice section!

Please vote for her too!

Happy sewing!

  17. Very cool quilt blocks! I love that idea--just needed to have some time with the cloth and the piecing. I wrote down all the things I wanted to finish up this summer, and told my husband I felt bored by everyone of them (not that I don't like them--just that they've been hanging around too long!). So I completely understand this idea!
