New Projects

OK.... so the month of May flew by before I knew it! There weren't a whole lot of sewing or computer time happenings, but I am determined to get back on my schedule... especially back to posting and visiting the blog community again.

Oh how I missed visiting everyone's blog for my daily quilty inspirations. What have y'all been up to? Once I get caught up with some more posts, I will visit yall again. For now, tell me what project or projects you've been working on in the comment.


Do you remember this photo of goodies that I posted back in December in this post?

See those 2-1/2" strip rolls and the Jelly Stars pattern by Fig Tree Quilts?

Whatever free time I had in May, I worked on this Jelly Stars quilt.




.... got the 4 blocks done a couple of weeks ago....



.... and this morning... got the sashings in. The plan is to cut the borders for this before heading out to work. Then sew those borders on tomorrow morning before work again. So that's the plan.... we'll see how I'll do. LOL



Another project I'm working on is using this layer cake.... you will have to wait and see what I had in mind. ;-)

I picked this up in the sale bin at the shop a couple weeks ago when I had another Cathedral Window class. Wouldn't you know it.... I forgot to bring my camera that day. :(

Well... I'm off to cutting those borders and then to work. Have a great day... er... afternoon/evening! :)

Your jelly stars are amazing. It is fun to imagine the possibilities from 2.5 inch strips.

Another fabulous quilt! I have been working on my sail boat baby quilt. I have 3 blocks done so far. Hope to get all 12 blocks done by month end.

I was not too keen on the Jelly rolls so far, but those stars are tempting!
