I stayed home from work this morning to catch up on some computer time with no interruptions. Of course, then I got distracted by sewing… Emails just aren’t as much fun. I decided to finish up some Puss in the Corner blocks I had been working on. I was able to get a copy of Fabulously Fast Quilts, Amy Smart‘s new book at Quilt Market. I really liked the blocks (and the super fast way Amy shows you how to put them together) from her Quick Puss in the Corner quilt. These were really fast to put together. I thought about making more blocks for a bigger quilt but that really crisp green is hard to find. Besides, I don’t make enough baby quilts. I have some friends who stock pile baby quilts for gifts and I always think, “I should do that!” Of course, then I end up forgetting and making a lap quilt. I started my blocks with..
I actually got a few hours to sew this week! I’m much more sane when I’m able to get some sewing time in. I’m also now finished with Season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer now.

I decided to add in some light blue as well to cool off the quilt. I really like the way it’s looking. I started with some of the older..
As if I needed to start another Work in Progress… The night before last I decided to start in on my Riley Blake Challenge quilt for our Modern Quilt Guild. I’ve been wanting to try a medallion quilt ever since I picked up Gwen Marston’s Liberated Medallion Quilts book. I’m using only Riley Blake Fabrics and solids. I’m pretty excited with how it is working out so far! I’m linking up with Work in Progress Wednesday before I run off to sew some more 😉 ~ Brenda
