Sewing a little

Today went quickly! Breakfast, the traditional Easter egg hunt, and a little sewing took all morning. Church filled the afternoon and a headache has filled my evening. I'm just about to head off to bed again now, but thought I would share the quilt I am working on at the moment with you.

It is a very old work in progress that I decided to finish. (One of my goals for the year is to get some old projects finished or recycled!) I bought this fabric years and years ago at the patchwork apple. I think I went straight home and sewed the nine patches and then it just sat. I have been putting them together (it should be a flimsy tomorrow sometime) and then I will spray baste it and quilt it. There you go. A goal for this week!

Yay for getting things ticked off the list. I hate things half done and starting on something new, I'd rather get one project finished at a time so that I can move on and forget about it. I've got a half one quilt top from last October, I feel like I should get that one done very soon but there's temptation to work on new stuff.

I recognize your fabrics...yes, they were the ones I used to make a patch-work jacket for my Mom 6 or 7 years ago...LOL...I still love those fabrics! I dug out the leftovers from my stash and am using them in my 'A Quilters Journey" by Leanne Beasley. I am putting a big dent in my 'stash' with this quilt...after all it has been a journey!
I am looking forward to seeing your finished quilt.
I do hope your headache is gone too, and that you were able to enjoy your Easter weekend.

Those florals are lovely. I am glad you dusted it off and decided to finish it.

Are you going to the Quilt Convention this weekend?
