Spring Sewing Party

This looks like fun. And since I'd planned to spend the weekend at my sewing machine, it's a perfect fit for my schedule. Yippee!



12:20 update -- So far, I've finished machine stitching the border onto the little green quilt and the boys have helped me wind a bunch of bobbins.

5:30 update -- I tried to think of a spectacular new project to start this afternoon, but I got sucked in by the box of 2 1/2" squares and wound up piecing the blocks for a new little quilt instead. I'll get the blocks assembled a bit later, when the kiddos are in bed and I can concentrate on the layout.



I also got the binding cut and machine stitched onto the little floral chain quilt I finished yesterday, and one side hand stitched down. I'm hoping to get the rest of that done tonight, too. And maybe a set of five courthouse steps blocks... I'm all set for a late night quilting binge!

I love your blocks giving you opportunities to create a wonderful quilt.The contrast between white and the coloured fabric.

Great 9 patches and snowballs. I'm doing a quilt along using both of these blocks and they are so addicting.
