on the cutting mat...

Happy Monday all.

Lately I've been a little lacking in the sewing department. My mum's been visiting, and it's been hard to get down to the basement to get any big projects done, but I've managed to plug away at some little things.

And some Bee blocks for FAITH circle of do.Good Stitches:

I have also started my next hexie project, with some late night stitching:

...and Project: Organize Crazy Sewing Space continues:

...I can't wait to finally be done with my sewing area and reveal :) It's been several weeks of short-bursts of decluttering and cleaning and sorting.

...and I thought I'd share the charity project we worked on at our last guild meeting for the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild. We were making baby quilts for the Lurie Children's Hospital NICU, and it was a lot of fun. We were all able to make several quilt tops at the March meeting (I thought I'd share a picture of one that my fellow Guilder Crafty Turtle and I worked on at the meeting)

We all had a lot of fun creating the quilts for an awesome cause.

  1. You've been very busy! I love the disappearing 4-patch! I made a baby quilt with that block a few months ago and I'm planning to use it again for my Hands 2 Help quilt. Yours looks fabulous.

  2. Wow, this is what you achieve, when you aren't able to sew much! I'm trying to cut triangles for my next quilt at the moment. But it's slow going. I'm looking forward to your sewing room reveal. It's always inspiring to see other sewing spaces!

  3. Have recently stumbled upon your blog - love your sense of color and liberated style. Could you possibly share the name of the blocks you're using in the quilt for Lurie's Children Hospital? Thanks in advance, Beth in AL
