Time to check in

This may be my final check in for the quiltathon this weekend. I didn't get as much accomplished as I would have liked, but it sure felt good to do a bit of sewing. But, I am feeling a bit tired, so I think I am hanging it up for the day.

There were a few distractions along the way.

My daughter dropped by both days to work on her wedding invitations. Can't get upset about that- they should have been in the mail a couple weeks ago.

She did sort of take over my sewing space in the process. But, in her defense, I do have my own sewing room. And I chose to sew at the dining room table instead.

Still, I managed to complete all of the blocks I need for the quilt. Aren't they pretty?

Here's a better view of them in all their glory on my design wall. I like how this one is shaping up.

But I think I will wait to stitch them together. This one is going to take a lot of concentration getting all the blocks facing the correct direction. Plus there will be about a million seams to match up. Yuck!

Perhaps I will practice first with these extra blocks. I think this could be a cute little topper.

And hey, did you notice my new ironing board cover? I stole the idea from Lisa Boyer at Dorky Homemade Quilts. She posted hers a while back and I had been itching to cover mine ever since.

I love those blocks and the way you have them arranged on your design wall!
