Friday night was sewing with Heidi night. I went to my son's house first and had supper with them and played with the grans for awhile. Then, I came home and sewed up some more Cosmetic Bags for community service...I made 10 bags last night and made block 2 of the Jelly Roll Sampler. I got up this morning and sewed up ten more cosmetic bags...I would have made more but I ran out of zippers again. I have more fabric but will have to get some zippers before I can continue. I'm going to try to make 50 bags. So far, I've made 30. These are quick and easy to make and are so appreciated by the ladies we give them to.
Block 2 of the Jelly Roll Sampler: I'm so loving these colors!
Today, I made one block for our friendship exchange for my small group. We normally only make one block a month but this month we have 2 blocks, so I will make that one later tonight. It's a 12 1/2" star block and I have to decide what star I want to make. I'm still deciding. Here's the one I finished.
This is called Jacob's Ladder Variation.
Do you remember I told you about a 4 patch exchange I was involved in, and showed you the 10 - 5 1/2" blocks I had made..here's the pic of those.
Here are the blocks I exchanged those for and I have sewn them together. I am making at least 10 of these per month to exchange, maybe more...This quilt looks really cute and is a great way to use up scraps. I have a picture somewhere of the quilt. When I find it, I'll post it.
Anyway, so far, that's what I've done. I'll try to sew a little tonight too but wanted to show you what I did today while it was rainy and cold outside. It's supposed to snow. Imagine, this is the first day of spring. I'm ready for some warm weather! Til next time....
