Inspired by Artquiltmaker

After reading artquiltmaker's blog this week I was inspired too push myself, quilting-wise. Here is a run down of  what I accomplished since Monday:

Strips cut for the 2 1/2 x 12 1/2 pieces for the scrapitude mystery quilt

5 1/4 squares (64) cut for mystery quilt

32 mystery quilt two patches sewn  -  sorry, no pictures.

Blocks Birthday Blooms block of the month (2013) quilt together, border and binding fabric chosen and purchased

Shoo Butterfly blocks finished


Trial  "Grandma's Star" nifty nine patch block of the month completed

Blocks for donation quilt complete.

Went to my first mini-group meeting Thursday. We made a Sawtooth Star and a Friendship Star using a technique that keeps all the pieces parts together while sewing. Pretty neat!

All in all a productive week.

I also raked leaves and vacumned half the house!

That is quite a list for one week! I am glad you are joining Scrapitude, Mary. I have done two! Once the initial fabric is cut, the pieces go together quickly and give great satisfaction!

You've been very busy (please don't look at my house...)! My favorite is the Grandma's Star. Great fabrics and colors! You'll like Scrapitude once the cutting is done!

You work on such a variety of projects. I enjoy seeing the different blocks as you go along. So you're doing scrapitude too. We're all cheering each other along, so here's yours: go Mary! scrapitude is quite an adventure.
