Up all night!!

 OK!  So I had insomnia...and decided that maybe God intended for me to be up and finish this quilt!! Just to put a positive spin on this...I finished the last three blocks, and just need to figure out the sashing or how to put it all together in some fashion.
 A closer shot of the blocks, about 6AM this morning...so it is quite dark.  This was inspired by a quilt seen on Quilting by the River.
Happy Valentine's Day!  This is my offering for Valentine's Day, for this year.  NO hearts in sight...but lots of pinks!




Have a wonderful day, each of you!!!

What a fresh, Spring-like quilt you are creating! Would brighten even the middle of the night. Makes me grin. :)
There are hearts in sight at my house--and some of them were made by you.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

I love both of those quilts--and if one can't sleep--one might as well be creative, is what I say--great job--
enjoy, di

❤️ the flower blocks! I hope you can sneak in a nap this afternoon.

The flowers on the string blocks is a delightful idea.
I had a case of insomnia earlier this week but did not get up and do something useful like you. I think the new medication I took is what caused it.

Oh Julie! So sorry about your insomnia! I have to do very quiet work when I can’t sleep—my family complains as our big poodle puppy (1+ year) gets excited and noisy if he hears me! Ha! Pretty, pretty flower blocks and you’ve framed them up so beautifully! Sleep well!

Making the most of your lack of sleep has put some speed in your projects!

Looks like you have a dozen roses for valentines day.

Oh, so pretty - insomnia happens occasionally but I still cannot get out of bed to be creative! Good job! Elaine Adair

I’m so glad I don’t have trouble sleeping! It’s one of my favorite things to do! (But don’t tell anyone!)

Why do so many women of a certain age have insomnia? It's so annoying! I have never gotten up to sew though.
Fun blocks and what a cute little quilt for V Day.

Sounds like you sewed your way through the night and came up with lovely blocks! The Valentine's Day quilt is sweet!

I like those flower blocks. I've never been a 'hearts' or 'pink' gal.

Barb said...

Sometimes I can't sleep either....I usually just read. Love love the flower quilt..

Kaja said...

I often can't sleep, but I've never thought to get up and sew. It is obviously a productive way for you to work and has resulted in lovely blocks.

The way I see it, if you can't sleep you might as well get up and get something done. That is my motto. I have found that as I have aged I need less sleep.

I love this quilt!
