Since summer ended and I started spending three days a week with my wonderful granddaughter, I have had trouble getting into a regular studio routine. Once I think I have it, other things seem to interfere like work that pays, visiting family, and whatever pops up. Now, I am trying to establish a regular block of studio time. Today, I was happily working in my studio, and got quite a bit done.
I am making progress on my small quilt for my Quilters, Books, and Bindings group. I have added the stems, leaves, and started adding the flowers. I decided to put a border on it so I could bring a couple of flowers out further. At this point, it is all hand work waiting. I will do that in the evenings or while Bella is napping.
I also worked on my Christmas quilt. I couldn't resist adding the red and white as a border around the Virgin. I started making several more blocks to help this quilt grow. I am not sure how big I want it. I guess I will keep making fabric until I run out of the fabric I am using.
Speaking of making fabric - I made the flowers for the top quilt out of some of my favorite Kaffe fabrics in my stash. I decided to make some fabric using the left over pieces from the flowers. I liked it so much, I have decided to make enough to make all the BOMs at the 15 Minute Play site so I will have a sampler quilt done by December 1. I think I will pick up one of the blues for the background fabric in the blocks. I am pretty excited about it. I love the colors in these fabrics and I think they will make a fantastic quilt. I just have to make lots of fabric.
My new schedule will have me in my studio Friday through Monday most weeks. Those will be the days I post on the blog, as well. Next weekend will be another exception, however. I have my nephew's wedding and out of town family to spend time with. In the mean time, I plan on posting tomorrow and Monday.
Have a joy filled Sunday, everyone.
