I'm Quilting!

I finally sat down and sewed today! I'm doing a Thangles Buck a Block from a lqs and needed to piece the latest one I picked up a week ago. It felt so good, I pieced the quilt together -- well, as far as I could anyway -- still have 3 more months to go on the BOM. I'm doing a Christmas fabric one -- the main print is green holly with berries on a white background. The sashings are green and cornerstones red and the 5" wide border will be a gorgeous red Christmasy paisley. It's only a small quilt though -- about 50 x 60, I think.

It feels good to finally start sewing again! I even cut out a Kansas Troubles pattern called Tulips All Around -- a 40" square quilt I want to use on my kitchen table. Hope to start working on it tomorrow.

Go, Joanne, go. Get that quilting mojo back and in the groove!

Sometimes time off is all we need to want to get re-started.

This is just great Joanne. I knew you'd start feeing better once you got going with something quilty. It's going to be a very nice Christmas quilt.

I like the different patterns in your BOM, they look all based on a 25 patch block, are they?

Love your Buck A Block quilt. Ours was all neutrals, and doesn't sing to me like yours does! Good job!

Good for you getting back to work. After being away from my quilting I find I'm not in the mood today.

I did a little freehand practice and unloaded the muslin from the longarm but don't seem to be in the mood to load the top I'm quilting next for my Mom.
