Fun Times in the Sewing Room

I decided to head on over to the quilt shop yesterday morning.  Of course, I came home with more than just the white I went for ... I didn't get a photo of my haul ... I'll share a picture next time.

I was able to quickly piece two blocks.

Just about the time I thought this quilt would come together quickly and easily, block 3 gave me a lesson in humility. I had to unstitch and restitch the final seam twice before I could get the pieces to line up satisfactorily. I had just enough time to give the block a nice press before DH brought dinner in from the grill.  Oops!

Obviously I correctly pieced the right half ... but reverted to the color layout of blocks 2 and 3 when piecing the left half. :-o

Hopefully I'll be a little more alert tomorrow when I head back into the sewing room.

Here's my inspiration quilt:
I wish I could cite the source for this image.  I pinned this quite a while ago but the previous pinner pinned to the image rather than the original website ... I didn't realize it until just now when I wanted to give proper credit.  Don't you just love the secondary design created?  

hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!


  1. Ohhhh, I love blue and white too. This is going to be gorgeous! Are you using a special template to cut pieces? Hopefully you got the oops out of the way early and the rest will be smooth sailing. ~Jeanne

  2. love that quilt - and we all make those kinds of piecing mistakes don't we - I know I have it is a lovely quilt love the colors you chose.

  3. That is fabulous. I LOVE the secondary/"thirdary" of the circles and swirls.

  4. I am loving everything about this! The fabric choices and colors, and that pattern...I am curious how that block goes together. Most of the time anymore I can see how the pattern works, but not this one, lol. Don't we all hate those oops moments, lol. Have a good week-end Kathy!

  5. It is definitely a winner, Kathy! Beautiful!!
    Haven't we all made blocks like that at one time or another? For me it is more times than I would care to admit.
    Seriously, you brought home more from the fabric store than you had planned to buy? How in the world did that happen?!? *LOL*

  6. My favorite color combination! Pretty piecing too.

  7. I love it. That is going to be beautiful!

  8. Winding Ways is one of my favorite patterns. It has another name, but I can't think of it now. I am glad you finally made it to the quilt store in order to get your fabric fix.

  9. Love it Kathy! You are such an amazing quilter-I can only hope that one day I'll be as productive as you are, despite all the challenges you've faced.

  10. Love it and your work is perfection! So glad you are back to your quilting.

  11. That's a great pattern with a great secondary pattern. Yout centers are spot on!

  12. I hate it when that happens, which it just does, let's be honest! That is going to be one gorgeous quilt. I really like the fabrics you're showing going into it. I've been wanting to make one of these for a while now but it is FAR down the list.


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
