Yay for sewing

Yay!! I finally got to spend some time in my sewing room. Pickles is off on an adventure and having the time of his life, game rooms are involved, a boys dream. Snowflake and JBoy have been bonding over a really dumb game, uh, a game with crappy music.. Minecraft but they like it. My laundry is all done, so off to my room I went! So I’ve knocked out a few blocks.

I joined a quilt guild and they had a couple of blocks to do. The card trick block for a lottery quilt. The rules? Brights.. so off and running with that! I llooovvvvveee brights. Also a signature block, talk about easy peasy, it was all cut out so all I had to do with that one was sew it together.

I’m pretty happy with the way all the blocks came out. I think I’d like to make a whole quilt outta the card trick block. It was a fun little block to do. Thanks to Jenny at Missouri Star Quilting for the tutorial on that block.

I also decided to join a quilt challenge, like I don’t have enough on my design wall. But it looked intriguing. I’ve never done a medallion quilt before. So here goes.. the name of the challenge is, Choose Your Own Adventure Quilt Along and it’s run by Moda Bake Shop. They have path A or B, you choose which path you’d like to take. The new path A’s come out on Mondays and path B’s on Wednesdays. Along with what the call a Sunday Social. (Of course I’m behind, but there are no time cops … yet) I’ve only done (mostly) the medallion center, for that I chose path A, the Dresden Peak. Very cool, and I got to use my invisible thread, always a plus. Then I think I’ll go with path B for the boarder with the cornerstones. Then we’ll see from there.

The Mr. is planning another fishing trip, do y’all think he’ll take all the boys? Hmmm, the sewing I could do.

Till next time,
