Spring Sewing Party

UPDATE: 10:30 PM

Well this was the progress this afternoon. I got some of the pieces for my Fairy Dust Quilt done. I got a little flustered with the paper piecing and decided to clean the sewing room. I'm glad I got going early this morning and got a few other things done sewing wise. I'm also glad that I did a little cleaning as well everything looks so nice and clean. I also received a call from my mom and she asked us over for dinner. How could I say no to dinner with my mom & dad. Until next time.


Well as of 1:00 PM I've managed to finish the "Verna" Quilt I was making. I finished the borders and but the applique on. After it's quilted I have some Ric Rac to put in the white of the border. The pattern is Liliana by Crazy Old Ladies.
I've also finished the First block for the Pinwheel Sampler over at P.S. I Quilt.


Up next is to make Block three of my Fairy Dust Quilt. I've also got a few half Square triangles to make. Back to the machine.



Well I'm trying something new. I've decided to join in on the "Spring Sewing Party" hosted by Kelly and Joan at Charming Chatter. I'm hoping to work on a few of my Fairy Dust Blocks that I've have for a few years. I also would like to finish my quilt made with "Verna" fabrics. I've got things lined up and ready to go. I'm excited about doing this. So until tomorrow.

Today is the first time I have seen the "Verna" fabric and it is popping up on several blogs. I must have had my head in the sand.

Everything looks wonderful, but especially your verna quilt! I love the white border to break the busyness of the verna material. It's just the perfect touch and your appliques are darling! Great job!
