Straightening up Saturday and working on red fabrics/scraps.

Today, I couldn't decide what I wanted to work on. As most of you know, I am not short of any projects to work on or finish up, but I just couldn't decide what to work on. And, I just wasn't motivated. Maybe, it was just too early...I don't know but it just wasn't happening.  So, I decided to straighten up my sewing room and get a little bit organized.  I straightened up and threw away and finally decided on what to work on.  I had a block I wanted to do so I pulled it out and completed it.  It was alot of was an easy block. I pulled out my pigma pen and my light box and wrote on this one too.  I'm going to include this one in my quilt from Amy's BOM last year...This came as a kit and was supposed to be a wallhanging but I decided to use it with my quilt.  Here's the block that I did:

Isn't this great?  I think it will look good in the quilt....

I pulled out another of my projects and I completed these little blocks.  These are all 6 inch blocks and will go in my 30's Sampler quilt....

3 down and about 18 more to go....These are so cute.  This is my first 30's quilt sampler I have ever done.  I'm really liking this quilt.   I have about 6 Applique blocks to do but I'm not looking forward to those!   Finally, I pulled out this last little quilt and finished it.  I started quilting it last night after I found out Angela was doing red fabrics this month.  This has been laying around for awhile. It was a class sample a few years back.  I quilted it very simply and bound it today.  It is now finished!  Woo hoo, an actual all the way finished quilt.... I know it's small but that counts too, right? 

I pulled out my red scraps and looked for little projects to do.  I don't have alot of red.  I think I'll see what I can finish quickly then onto bigger sure is a good feeling to have an actual finish. 
I'm going out of the house now for dinner. It will be the first time in a few days that I've been able to leave the house.   I tried yesterday but fell on the driveway....I'm so sore today, I can't hardly move around but other than that, I'm great.  Now, off to dinner with the family. Have a wonderful Saturday.

Your red quilt looks good! I think it is the nicest red project I have seen so far from all the red Rainbow Scrap projects. Good thing you had a head start on it.
