Time to Clean Up

First off, the block I made for KarrieLynne in the Fresh Modern Bee.  She asked for a 16.5" sampler type block using HST's.  Since I was on a roll with the paper pieced flying geese, I decided to make another one.  I learned another lesson.  Drawing out a block on graph paper and thinking it looks good, does NOT guarantee a stunning finished block.  I had huge misgivings, but now that the block is finished, I think it looks good.

She is using Make Life... by Sweetwater.  And I just happened to be making a quilt with a charm pack of this sweet fabric when her package arrived.  Hopefully I'll have a finished quilt to add to my shop soon.

Yesterday evening I said "Enough"  to my messy sewing room.

Amazing what half an hour with a bright yellow payloader can do for a room!

Can you tell that I don't sew alone?

I'm thinking that this cleanup might produce a small giveaway in the near future.


  1. That block with the flying geese and the pinwheel center is amazing! I have some charm packs in that line. What to do...what to do?

  2. I have a little one spending time in my room too when I sew. She has her own little table where she colors and gets playdough all over the carpet. lol

  3. I think that block IS stunning! Nicely done!

  4. Ooooo you've totally changed my mind about flying geese, that block looks amazing!
