Made some more blocks today...Barrister's blocks!!

HI Y'all!

Here are the blocks I have made so far, for Randy's Sew Along.  It was very peaceful (pieceful) today...all these blocks were previously cut out and I all I had to do was tap my feet to the music and sew.  Relaxing, and that is good!  I find that my quilts are infused with whatever emotions I am experiencing at the time I am working on them.  Can you imagine what my "Braveheart" quilt must be like?  Or my "Twilight" quilt?  This one is full of fun and just plain relaxation....loving it!  thanks, Randy!  (who doesn't know me...probably doesn't know I am doing her blocks, but hey...it is a small world!)


Have a great day all!!

Hey, Janet O., of Rogue quilter fame...you are my winner of the pattern from last week...the raggedy quilt!  Hey Angie, of The Thread catcher fame!  You won the raggedy candle mat, and a candle to go with it for fall!  Let me know your addresses ladies...thank you for entering my little drawing.  Go and see these ladies blogs...they are phenomenal!


And more thanks are due...I want to thank each of you who so graciously lend me your wisdom and support and friendship whenever I ask your opinion, with helpful advice and critique!!  You mean the world to me...sincerely!

Congrat's to your giveaway winners.
Your Barrister's blocks look great -- neat, colorful, and best of all -- finished!!
I associate some of my quilts with music too. That's my favorite way to sew. Block out the rest of the world and enjoy the flow or the beat of the music. It's pure heaven, music + quilting.

It is good to hear that you are having a fun, relaxing time. I am finally back to some sewing today too. Feels good :-)

Your Barristers Sow-Along blocks are looking so good. I need to get the last batch made.
I won? How fun! I've never made a rag quilt, but I really like this one--and it's plaid, too. I have plenty of those. : )

Lovely blocks Julie! I wouldn't be so sure she doesn't know about you joining her sow a long:)

I have a tote bag that I take with me EVERYWHERE with my current hand quilting project in it. Waiting for the school bus, my lunch break at work, on the bleachers watching my kids' games and practices, road trips, board meetings for some of my civic involvement - you name it! I get a lot done that way. Your turtle quilt turned out very nicely!
