I was able to get some sewing done over the weekend which was good news since I have to travel for work this week.  That really cuts into the sewing time but flying gives me lots of reading time!

First up, made my first bee block for the MMQG.  I was happy how it turned out.  It will be fun to see every one's blocks.  My month is March and have a plan so that is good.

Then I worked on my monthly blocks for Moda club at my LQS.  We really only need to make one but we get patterns for three blocks each month and this month I made all three.  We'll see how it goes each month and if I like all the blocks.  I don't really have a plan for the quilt and just thought I would see what fabrics I pulled and liked together.  I am really liking grey and want to find some more good navy's to go in it as well. So far everything has been pulled from my stash.  Here are the three blocks:

I am really trying to do my scrap vomit as my leader and ender project.  I really have a hard time but did manage to get one more block done in between all my blocks.

I also was able to get the quilting started on the Summerville quilt.  I am using the dogwood quilting from Oh Fransson's blog. I am liking it.  I did mess up on lining them up but know once I was it no one will know.   I am hoping to finish it next weekend.

No progress:

1.  Easy street
2.  Civil war sampler
3.  Journal covers for gifts

Want to make the triple zipper pouch yet too!  I am going to the quilts sew day next week so I should be able to make one or more!

Happy sewing!

Linking up at Plum and June.


  1. I like what I see of your Summerville quilt. I'm anxious to try that dogwood quilting, too, but am so new to FMQ that I'm a little nervous. I can see where you've been in the left of your photo and it looks like you're doing beautifully!

  2. Pretty quilt blocks! I particularly like the MMQG bee block ... your fabric choice and placement really adds a lot to the block design ... thanks for sharing on the Monday Link up and for stopping by my blog and leaving a lovely comment ... :) Pat

  3. I love the look of the dogwood quilting but I am so bad at FMQ. I really must try it again sometime.

  4. I love the bottom quilt! Those Summerville fabrics have been calling my name for months; I suppose I should buy some before they're gone.

  5. You sure are busy for someone who has little time for sewing! Nice blocks. Love the vomit.
