A little sewing.. woohoo

I'm still trying to recover from a week watching the three grandkids but managed to squeeze in a little sewing last night.  I wanted to catch up on the Marvelous Monday Minis, which had been giving me so much grief!

Why would I have so much trouble making simple little 2" blocks?? Primarily because I had the wrong measurements!! UGH.  I think I made them each 3 times!  Finally got them done!







I've downloaded all the rest of the pictures from the Sisters Quilt show and will show you some now and the rest tomorrow or Tuesday.

This picture is an overview of one of the buildings.  It's actually where the Stitchin Post used to be years ago before they built their own building.  Unfortunately the quilts along the top railing are impossible to see from below.  It's so picturesque, though.  Doesn't it look like a building from the old wild west??


Here's a close up of the quilt in the middle.


Here are the Lori Holt Vintage Farm Girl.  They are very inspiring. So cute.  remember I'm doing my Triangle Gatherings from that fabric line (or similar manufacturers)...although after seeing these, I'm inspired to work on this quilt. 








Log cabins:




That's it for now.  More will follow!

  4. Those two log cabin quilts got my attention. Like them both. I saw a Kathy Schmitz panel online just a day or two ago. Wonder if it was what was used for the center of the blocks on the one quilt.
