I Think I've Been Bitten ~

Yes, it's the inspiration bug that bit me. 

  ~ Photo borrowed from Tina's blog ~

I thought and thought about Tina's "Low Volume, Bright Hopes" block until I just had to try it. 

 Sophie added the information that explained the how to's (thank you, Sophie!) 


I think it became an obsession (you know what I mean, don't you?) to try this one because I was so busy with school stuff (report cards again) that I could never find the time to just sit down and try it.

  Easter break began on Good Friday before I could be sitting at the sewing machine.
I'm trying to show the 80 blocks in a stack, but I already had begun to sew....
looking down on the stack

one strip

then, another ~

 now, 4 rows!

There are now 2 flimsy tops, ready for the next baby gift needed ~

But, Wait! Lookie what hooked me in now:

Isn't it sweet?!? I think I need to try this one, also. Keep the inspiration bugs coming, I am enjoying this!

Happy Easter ~

Easter Blessings to all! God shares His love to us in so many ways.

Vintage Topper for Kathy's Piano

The top is finished, I love it! Kathy does, too, I'm so glad.

 I took these photos at school, 

 ~ the pieced backing ~

and decided to share with you folks some of the paper rainbow mosaics we created this past week, 

celebrating March, Spring and St. Patrick's Day~

 ~ Washed and crinkly ~

Happy quilting!

National Quilting Day

Today is National, or maybe we should call it, International Quilting Day.



 I'm celebrating the right way!

...Are You??



Happy quilting!                I'm joining in at SewCalGal's Virtual Sew-cial today ~

Monday Progress, Or, Sewing in Spite of Daylight Saving Time ~



Shucks, I didn't get to go to my quilt class tonight, bummer.

But, I did get to make some blocks for Block Lotto this month (I feel like a slacker, it has been several months since I last participated!).

Look how the "design wall" filled out this weekend! There are 5 rows of the "wiggly whimsy" together, but not assembled...

...or would you say, the rows are assembled, but not sewn together? 
Are we all confused, lol

 If you are confused, maybe its because of suffering from the time change. 

Oh, I really miss the sleep that one stolen hour brings! I think it is silly how much it affects some of us, but the kids came into class draggin', grumpy, tired, and complaining...or maybe that was just me :-}

Cute question was, "Mrs. Davis, just what did they do with the hour they took away?"


Oh well, in a week or so, we will all be back into the swing of things, right? 
Until then, keep sewing!
