Triangle Quilting

I just got back into town after a long weekend in NYC with my mom to celebrate her 70th Birthday! We had the most amazing time! It was such a special time and we only did the things we really wanted to do, like climb up to the crown of the Statue of Liberty and walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. We did some other things that we had been wanting to do, but the rest of the time we walked around the city, stopping to shop and eat where we wanted, and just enjoying the city and our time together.  I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m one of the lucky ones who has a really good relationship with their mom, it helps that she’s so awesome.  I know not everyone has what I do, so I’m very clear about what a blessing it is!

I left for the city with a bunch of WIP, and I need to post the top of my triangle quilt before the week has passed by.   Getting back into the swing of things always takes me a few days, but I’m pushing myself to get back at the sewing machine and start back on all those projects I have going!

The top is finished, and I need to start going on the back and making some binding!  I’m getting there!  Laundry first, my kids need some clean clothes, meals, and school…..then quilting!

I hope y’all are enjoying your Easter/Spring Break and enjoying the warmer weather and longer days!
And you know I’m hoping you’re Sewing Awesomeness!

WIP: Plugging Along

I’ve kind of gone from not having any projects going to having a whole bunch at the same time!  But, I am making progress.

This is the Sugar Block for March from Amy Gibson’s Sugar Block Club.  I love the blocks she has designed for the BOM.  I usually tend to stick with really modern prints or solids, but I’ve gone a whole different route with my fabric selection for this BOM and I love it.  I’m just going for a really scrappy look, and I’m thrilled so far!

This is my March block from the Hop, Skip and Jump BOM from Sew Lux.  This one is wrapping up soon and I’m looking forward to piecing the top and getting this one done. I’m thinking about gifting this one…..but not sure where it will go yet!

This little block is my block for Stash Bee.  Stash Bee is the first online Bee I’ve participated in and April is my month!  I chose this block below and can’t wait to see what everyone sends my way!  I love that by the end of April I’ll have enough of these blocks to make a whole quilt!  Love it!  If you want to make one of these, I have a tutorial over at Stash Bee!

Then, there’s this:

Yes, all my triangles are cut and I’m ready to start piecing the top for the Triangle Quilt Along over at the Sassy Quilter!  I love the fabric for this project and I’m excited to have this one pieced as well!  I’m going to have to get busy on this project as it will be finishing up quickly, by the end of April!

I added this top to the Lovely Year of Finishes yesterday, and I need to get the back pieced so I can get it basted, quilted and bound by the end of the month!

Maybe I’ve bitten off a little too much this month, especially since I’m going on a trip to NY with my mom in a few days!  We’re celebrating her 70th Birthday with a quick long weekend trip to NY next week!  We have all sorts of fun plans and have packed as much as we can into four days!  Of course, there will some stops at The City Quilter and Purl Soho….now you’re jealous!

I have a lot to do, but I’m working hard and having fun at the same time!  It’s so fun to be playing with fabric and sewing again!  Fun times!

Sew Awesomeness and enjoy every minute.

A Lovely Year of Finishes: April Project

I finally pieced the top of my 2013 Sugar Block of the Month quilt…..

Even though all of my blocks have been finished, I had put off piecing the top together because I had messed up!  My blocks were all different sizes.  Some of them were the right and same size, but there were about 4 or 5 that were huge.  I pieced these blocks on a different machine and didn’t measure for a 1/4 inch seam.  Duh.  So, they were larger than the rest and I didn’t want to redo them.

I decided to frame them all with solids then cut them all to the same size.  If you look, you can see that the frames are different sizes.  Some are much thinner than the others, but the blocks are all the same size now!

I wanted to make the quilt a little larger so I made the big star block for the middle and pieced everything around it!

Now I’m linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes so I can stay motivated to finish this up!  I need to piece the back, make some binding, baste it, quilt it and bind it up!  Finishing the top is only half the work!

I’m keeping busy working on several projects right now, and I’m loving having time to sew right now!  I’m getting as much done as I can because I know this time I have to sew ebbs and flows!  But right now, Sewing Awesomeness is a thing in my life right now!  Woo hoo!

I hope you all are having a lovely Spring and finding time to sew and finding time to be with family and friends!  Enjoy!
