Sewing Again!

I started sewing again!

It's been over two weeks since I've had the time or motivation to sew. I know. It's a terrible feeling.

My apologies to my quilting bee partners for being late with the June and July blocks. I finished the wonky log cabin for Autumn's June kit.

I have to confess, I'm not a big fan of making wonky log cabin blocks. I always afraid I'm going to turn the block the wrong direction and sew the next log onto the wrong side. But this one was fun. Maybe because it was Holiday fabrics. Maybe because I pretended I didn't have anything else going on so I was able to focus and let loose. I am happy with how this one turned out, so I hope Autumn likes it too.

Next, I am gearing up to make Doris' cyclone block for July.

I've never tried paper piecing before, so I am going to use the tutorial Doris provided and this tutorial for reference.

Once I'm caught up on everyone else's bee blocks, I am planning to get my fabrics ready to mail for my August kit. I'm going to request string blocks for a fall quilt, using these fabrics.

Sure feels good to be in the sewing seat again!


  1. Oh, I'm excited for your block, I love the Belle fabrics and string blocks are fun to make!

  2. PS - I forgot to say thank you to Autumn for the adorable Christmas ornament! So fun to receive an ornament in July. And now I'm looking forward to trying more wonky log cabin blocks too, since I got over my nervousness!

  3. Terri,
    I was wondering if when you started quilting if you found yourself buying lots of great fabrics and then wondering how to put them all together? Any advice?

  4. You are so welcome and thank YOU for putting together that block. Darling!
