Getting Ready For Sewing Along Today

Early in the day I like to organize my sewing plans with my morning coffee. 

I was laying out my next batik blocks for my hubby when he wandered through 
with his morning cup, so I asked him for his input.
We played with the cut pieces and this is what he chose.
It is nice to be making a quilt with my hubby,
Usually he just says something like "you do well" when I ask his opinion
and leaves me to my own quilty designing.
Because this quilt is for him, he has been more proactive in the choices.
I like it.
We need to make more quilts together ... :) 

I also laid out my fabric choices for today's block for the
I like this block because I can showcase one of the beautiful curio bell jars.
Most of the blocks call for smaller pieces. 

Tomorrow instructions for Block 2 in the
will be released. 
I saw that it is a Nine Patch Block in the Fat Quarter Shop Livestream today
so I am already thinking of fabric possibilities.
Tomorrow morning I will still be deciding on this one.

Since I am a "Stay At Home Quilter" and do not sew with a guild,
my hubby and my online friends are my sewing circle.
I am happy my daughter, who lives over a thousand miles away, has also
joined my online sewing circle.

I really enjoy sharing and sewing with others.

So Sew-Alongs are my way of sharing and caring with other quilters.

What sew alongs are you participating in right now?

I am always looking for more quilty friends. 


Evening Update:

Day 45 ~ Block 45 Done!
Only 28 more blocks to go on the batik quilt.

Have a happy quilty night... :-)

  1. I am not doing any quilting...AGAIN!!! We are planning a move. I hadn't even gotten completely settled into my sewing loft! The new place has five bedrooms, one of which was and will be a sewing room! I will have a dedicated office!! And of course, my bedroom, one for our roommate who we are taking with us and then my daughter's room. Beside the house there are 8+ acres, a barn with room for five stalls, an insulated shop with a loft, a round pen and lots of yards for all the dogs (7 of them between us), an actual chicken coop, and trees on part of the property. So yeah...I'm moving!!!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a kind word! :-)
