Mid-May . . . Already?

21 days of sewing fun !!!

We are more than half way through this challenge!! I hope everyone participating feels as productive with this challenge as I do. It has been very rewarding to have this much time at the sewing machine. I did the math and it's only 9.5 hours total, but I feel so accomplished. When I don't sew I feel like I've deprived myself of something very important.

Susan at DesertSky Quilting alerted us of a freebie at the same time I discovered it. I spent my Friday morning at the library downloading the patterns.

Here's your link to Bear Creek Quiling's BOM for 2017. This company is wonderful because the patterns are all still free without any posted deadlines or expiration. Not sure if previous years are still available, but it appears they have a new BOM every year.

My 30 minutes of sewing time was spent putting the rest of the sashings on the Redwork quilt

I get more excited with each step of this project.

And to round out the day

progress was made on the Easter block.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity and productivity.

I can see why you are getting more and more excited about the red and white quilt - it's getting more and more finished! Wow, almost finished with the Easter word, too. You are a faster stitcher than I am, that's for sure! And I suspect you are spending more than 30 minutes a day, too. LOL Great progress, congratulations! I do like the Blockheads blocks.

I like the applique patterns in the Blockheads, but no time! Your Redwork quilt is really coming along, I can't wait to see it all finished. Your Easter stitching is lovely!
