A few Works in Progress…

I haven’t blogged in a while, but it is because I’ve been busy making these:

Scrappy string quilt blocks

and cutting them into these:

arranging them into these:

And soon, I’ll be sewing it into a quilt.

Isn’t it bright?  Like the circus.  Is that a good thing?  Well, even it if is crazy looking, it works because this one is going to be mine 🙂

I’ve also been working on a few of these:

To put into one of these:

To donate to the PTA for a fundraiser auction.  It is almost done.  I’ll hopefully have pictures by Monday.  I was inspired by this quilt from crazy mom quilts, but instead of choosing the white thread, I went along with the brown thread.  I hope I made the right choice.

Both quilts are twin.  The string quilt is going to be 9 blocks by 12 blocks (total of 108 8.5×8.5 inch blocks).  I found the tutorial here by film in the fridge.  Here is her final product.  Isn’t it beautiful.

And, if you are looking for a manly quilt, go to me? a mom? It is very similar to a string quilt, only with less sewing and more exact measuring.  She is currently having a quilt-a-long and is also having a giveaway.

Well, off to bed.  Hope to have one of these done soon, since the auction is on FRIDAY!!!
