More time for piecing...

Hmm, I seem to be getting a bit more time for piecing lately. I know it's from me changing up my daily schedule and I'm liking the productivity!

I usually have some progress on my handwork...and that goes for this week, also. I have finished this block for my Simple Folk...

I wish I hadn't fallen so far behind on  Simple Folk, which was the Sarah Fielke BOM for 2018. Especially since the first installment for 2019's BOM  is being released in the next 24 hours.

I also sat down after work yesterday for a coffee break and some hand-piecing on this week's block for the Hand-Pieced QAL....

I am happy with block #2 of the Harry Potter QAL hosted by Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts. This block is Hermione. It's not too late to join in on this one!

(note to self....clean the lens on the camera so as to get clearer photos)

I've been working at my Border Creek Mystery. I think this will be a bright quilt!

I've been dabbling with some Dear Jane blocks. This one has been on my bucket list for a very long time, but I've always struggled with tiny blocks. I think I'm ready (really????)...and now is a good time, as there is a sewalong beginning in mid-February on Instagram, so there would be motivation and accountability (really????).

Here is the block on the design wall so you can get an idea of "scale"...

Now it's time for a bit of an abashed confession...I seem to have two more "starts" looming in my near future. I'll go into that at a later time.

For now, it's time to make the long commute to the longarm. Believe me, on a frigid day like today, I'm even more thankful to be able to stay indoors. 

Stay warm, stay safe!! xo

Today I am linking up with Susan at Quilt Fabrication for Midweek-Makers.


  1. Wow! DJ is so tiny compared to the other blocks on your design wall! Great looking blocks. Lots to keep you busy and out of trouble!

  2. The bird looks so good in the fabrics you used.

  3. Lots of pretties on the design wall!
