Some weeks are better than others

Well, !@#$@!.  I really, really wanted to get my blocks together for the quilt top on the Avalon jelly roll project.  But, as it happens, I haven’t had a chance this week to sew for more than 15 minutes at a time.  Some days, the most progress I could muster is pressing newly attached strips on perhaps 10 blocks.  That’s it.  Like 5 minutes or less.

I’m soooo close too!  I just have to attach the last strip to my 36 blocks and then cut the setting triangles and I can start my assembly. 

As soon as I have that done, I have my eye to jump in on the STARBURST sew along hosted by Happy Quilting.  I ordered a fat 8th of Posy fabric by Aneela Hooey for Moda fabrics (along with four Bella solids that FQS pairs up with collection), and I think it will be adorable!!  The bottom fabric swatch is what I will use for the background.  CUTE! 

 

 

I also want to ‘whip up’ a little item from Sinta Borland’s (of Pink Pincushion) fabric grouping that Fat Quarter Shop is featuring this month as a Blogger’s Choice.  Aren’t these fabrics together great?  More on that later though when I actually get started on it…

Hope you are able to squeeze more time into sewing this week than I am!

Thanks for stopping by!
