Several projects

I guess I am not the only one having a lot of projects going on.  You remember the two boxes from my previous post.  Where I decided to continue prepping This Goes With That hexagons with the red fabrics.  That was because I had other plans with the other box.


I am going to make a orange peel quilt using these fabrics.  They are a kind of out of my comfort sone, but I LOVE these fabrics.


So this week I have prepped a lot of orange peel blocks.  This will be another perfect #happytravellingproject for my trip to Shipshewana. Only 5 weeks until we are on the plane now. Hope I will meet a lot of blogging friends there.


Started to machinequilt my Red Home quilt this week. Decided that I had to do something with the pile of basted quilts.  Quilting a little now and then because my neck is not feeling so good at the moment. 


And Rusken really like to join me in the sewingroom.


And he loves the Red Home quilt.  So this is cat approved several times.


So when Rusken is sleeping on the Red Home quilt and I am not able to machinequilt on it, I’ve been handquilting on this little quilt.


We have already had several frost nights and it was cold this morning when I took photos of these cute snowmen.  This is blocks I gave Hanne for her adventcalendar last year and we were sewing it together.  But with all the Christmas preparations and then spring and summer came it was not finished.  Just three blocks done.


Today I have stitched and appliqued 4 blocks.  Hope to finish the last two blocks this weekend and then I can sew the quilt together.  Each little block is so fast to make, so why did I put it away last Christmas.

Tomorrow will be an exciting day together with ladies from my quiltgroup. Will tell you more later.

Saying for today:

I do like your orange peel pieces. I would be challenged too - those are not my colors, either. But they look great. I have visited Shipshewana - excellent that you will get to travel there. A couple of great fabric stores - although the finished quilts were very expensive. Enjoy!

Grethe said...

Mye spennende å lese i posten her! gøy å følge med deg, og god reise forresten, pass på at Rusken hardest bra uten deg :-)

Patti said...

Teehee! I just wrote a post about the very thing you mention in your post title! You are truly an inspiration to me. I sure hope your neck is feeling better soon. Seems like you had that problem last year too - or was it your shoulder? I love all your projects, and I think the orange peel will turn out beautifully!
