We made it through the weekend and all the winter weather. Our area ended up with about 12″ of snow – not a lot compared to what other areas received, but a lot for us. It looks so pretty to see all that fluffy white snow outside. We were very lucky and didn’t have a power outage. Whoop! Seems like we lose our power if the wind just blows a little bit, so we were pretty excited. 🙂 I hope all of you are safe and warm!
I did a little sewing and made some progress on my blue & mustard project, but not as much as I would have liked. That’s because I spent a lot of time knitting and watching movies with hubby. Just chilling…. Oh, and that chocolate pie I posted on Instagram was delicious! If you missed it, I would love for you to follow me – @cookingupquilts
I did get the Bee block finished for Colleen and want to share it with you. I like this block so much. Colleen is the person who introduced me to Kona Prussian and I love her for it. Seriously. I don’t have a crush on this blue any more – I’m having a full-fledged love affair with it!
Look how that blue just POPS off the block! I can’t wait to see her finished quilt; it’s going to be gorgeous. The colors here look a bit brighter than they are in real life. That orange is a darker print and the yellow is, well, yellow-er. The block was so easy and fast to put together. If you want to make your own, you can find the tutorial for the Quatrefoil block here.
In the interest of keeping it real for everyone, I want to show you what I did yesterday.
I call this my twin geese. Duh….. I didn’t even know I did this until I started to press the seam. I guess it was time for a sewing break.
And look at this pretty sunrise. I took this pic last week sometime and forgot to share it. I love all the colors in that sky. If I could just translate that into a quilt….
This week I have a customer quilt to baste & quilt and then the rest of the week is mine. I have a new pattern I’m just about ready to publish and I am so excited to share that finish with you. I’m aiming for Friday, so stay tuned! I also want to finish the blue/mustard flimsy. There’s a lot going on here!
I’m generally just excited to be in my sewing room this week! How about you? I would love for you to share what you are working on and what you are crushing on – here’s how:
