Sewing and Organizing

I have been busy today, I even got the tree un-decorated.
While out town this morning I stopped at the store and I bought two of those great three drawer unit and sorted and got this cabinet neater. Still need to go through each basket to see what is really in them and put all the blocks inot the drawer units. It's a start though.

On one of the quilting site's I belong two we are doing a Christmas Quilt Along. We were to make two of the 6.5 inch Ribbon Star blocks to get us started for January. If you know me you know my quilt will be scrappy so here are my blocks ... made from my scrap basket.

and we are doing a Star BOM too ... for January we are doing this block but I got it wrong can you tell?? so I had to take it apart and redo it. It is corrected now, the points don't all go in the same direction now ... lol. If you'd like to play along with us I'll be posting my pictures monthly ... you can choose your fabrics and make them to suit you. I chose purples and creams to go with some other blocks I have made already.

until next time ... happy quilting

Your cabinet looks really nice. And I love your Christmas quilt along and Star BOMs. You have been quite busy the last couple the pineapple blocks-that one is at the top of my list. I've been making crumb blocks them!

Thanks for visiting my blog and looking at my Spiderweb quilt. I paid a visit to your blog too, and your quilting is great. I know you are going to finish your spiderweb quilt this year; I can see from your pictures that you have lots of great scraps! I see you have a crumb quilt that needs to be finished up. I pieced my crumb quilt ages ago, and it just needs to be quilted. Another UFO in the pile...LOL!
