Long weekend of sewing

I have had a wonderful long weekend, the weather was beautiful, my children were busy and I got lots of sewing done. On Saturday afternoon I started cutting and making these 4 patch blocks. They soon became part of some strips.

By today I had got this much of the quilt done. Its a Schnibbles quilt that I have made bigger so its going to be a lap size. This is such a fun quilt to work on. I hope to have it finished by the end of the week.


This afternoon I photographed a few of my quilts to put in my quilt journal. This one I made in 2008. Its called Flower Bed by Bronwyn Hayes.



Here is my Journey of a Quilter designed by the very talented Leanne Beasley. I love her designs and I have a few new ones on my to do list.





Just a few quilts resting on the chair, I thought they made a nice photo all neatly folded. How did you spend your weekend? I hope you found some sewing time.

I love your Schnibbles quilt - I have one of her patterns but haven't made it yet. I did some sewing this weekend too. I'm working on a UFO that's a couple of years old. It's a small snowman wall hanging. blessings, marlene

Hello Colleen
Sorry I couldn't email you but you are a no reply blogger therefore it wouldn't let me. The pattern is from a Schnibbles book by Miss Rosie. I think thats the one you mean, the other one which has stitchery is flower bed by Red brolly.
