What I’m Working On…

I know I always say this but it’s been crazy this week and I haven’t had a lot of sewing time.

I got one quilt off the frame last week and bound.  I love it and can’t wait to show it to you  but I think you’re going to have to wait until it comes out in print.  It’s a current favorite of mine.

I can show you this….It’s the quilt I started using the Kim Diehl fabric.  I’m going with the philosophy that slow and steady wins the race with this one.


I have a quilt on the frame but that one I can’t show yet.  It’s made with Moda’s Rambling Rose fabric line.  It’s a jelly roll quilt.  After I was done with it I had lots of little scraps left over.  One night last week I woke up in the middle of the night unable to sleep.  As I laid in bed, I kept thinking about those scraps and an idea came to me.  I ended up going downstairs and sewing them together into a little quilt top.  Then I had a few even smaller scraps left over.  I sewed them up into this.  It’s going to be a strip that’s added to the backing.

Now every single piece of the jelly rolls is going to be used up!!

Do you ever wake up in the night and sew??  Typically I have never done that.  I had fun but the next day wasn’t so fun.

That’s what’s happening around here….

  1. Great little quilt you’ve made. Not sure my seams would be straight if I were to sew in the middle of the night lol. In any way, my son’s bedroom is too close by, I’d be stressed about waking him up. I did, once, cut a few fabric but shhhh! no one’s to know. ;^)

  2. Your “not getting much time to sew” sure is productive! If I lie in bed awake for more than 30 minutes I get up and sew-thankfully it’s not too often. Not much on TV in the middle of the night. We are empty nesters and my hubby is a good sleeper, so no fear of waking him up. My friends think I’m crazy! But no interruptions so it’s very productive. Usually work on something that doesn’t need much thinking!
