More Progress...

Today was a much better day...at least for me. :) I'm sure Andrew would not agree with that, he is soooo sore. The day after is so much worse, that is when the soreness sets in. He still still finding bumps and bruises everywhere, but he will be fine, thank God. This evening, Hunter crashed on his bicycle and skinned his little arm. Nothing major but he needed loved on too. :)I did get some sewing done late last night (I couldn't sleep) and today. I'm working on a customer quilt too. I'll post a photo of it tomorrow. I think she said it was called "Happy Hour" I'll have to look at the paperwork to make sure, anyway it is cute.

I worked on more log cabin blocks last night. I now have 50 of them and I still haven't decided on a setting for it yet. I'll decide on that later, right now I just want to get all of the blocks made. As I was sewing my log cabin blocks, I decided to play around with a pattern that I've had for a while. It is called Everlasting Wreaths. I got it at Laundry Basket Quilts and it is by Edyta Sitar, she has beautiful patterns. I'm thinking that I will just leave this by my machine and that way I can make one or two while I am working on something else.

After I get several more blocks made I will switch the blocks around so that I don't have the same fabrics so close in the quilt. I just wanted to show you how it was looking so far.
I mentioned the other day that I was thinking about using my Courthouse Steps on my bed. I put it on there to see how well it would fit.
I like it on there pretty good. Now I can't wait to get my walls and bed painted and it quilted!! It was a little long but I just tucked it up under the pillows sorta like a bedspread. I would rather have a quilt that is too big than not big enough. That's all that I have for today! Hopefully tomorrow I will have more quilty stuff to show you!!!

Poor Andrew (and Hunter) hope they both feel better soon!
That is a beautiful quilt! It looks so pretty layed out on your bed!

I know it will take a few days for the boys to feel better but time does heal. Glad Hunter wasn't hurt worse!

Your Everlasting Wreath blocks are similar to the Pineapple blocks. I have 60 of those made; need 120 for the entire quilt top, and then a border. I use really tiny scraps; the blocks are six inches square. Sometimes I find something in the wastebasket that can be used. Wow! I'm stingy!

Love the wreath blocks what a wonderful design and your courthouse steps look great on the bed.

Holy Buckets! You've been busy! Just when I thought I was going to get Edyta's Eldon and Mountain Top patterns, you showed what her Everlasting Wreath pattern looks like. Now I don't know which one to try. Maybe that doesn't matter, tho, since I don't have near enuf scraps. I have been working on a pineapple block and have 11 blocks done and need 9 more. Glad to hear your boys are OK.

Happy Quilting!

I JUST LOVE ALL OF YOUR SCRAP QUILTS!! Did I say that emphatically enough? : )

Thank God Andrew is ok. What a horrible thing to happen.

Your courthouse steps are fantastic! I love your new blocks too.

Love the new quilt you are working on. Now, I just want to see what you end up doing with that big pile of quilts you showed the other day!

Of course, I love your log cabin blocks - you are getting a nice stack built up. And...I made the Everlasting Wreath quilt several years ago and am FINALLY hand quilting it now. The blocks were so fun to make, but I did not enjoy piecing it all together!

Poor Boys...glad they're healing well.
The wreaths pattern is really neat. Can't wait to see it finished. I like her Hay Bales pattern too. Neat website for patterns.
Your courthouse steps looks good on your bed. What color are you doing the walls?
