Some things I worked on this week

Ok, I have done some things this past week and I haven't showed them. My computer at work doesn't like to upload my pics to blogger anymore so I can't do it at lunch. I've been super busy this week and haven't taken the time to post....here's what I was talking about in my last post.  It's my Row by Row quilt and I finished doing the May or 5th row and added it in.  I redid the top row and took off the first pinwheel row and replaced it with the new one...I think it looks alot better.



See the blocks I took off. I changed my mind about the background color and went with white so this row of pinwheels just didn't work for me.  The pattern calls for a beige or off white background but I found this white fabric I loved and wanted to us it....I'm the only one doing white background and I'm glad I decided to use it.  Mine will be just a little different from everyone else's and I like that.  Who says we have to follow the rules?  Anyway, I like the way it's looking so far and this has been alot of fun. Only 4 more months to go on this little quilt and it will be finished. I can't wait to see how it's gonna look.



I made these two little blocks this week for the leaders of my quilting group.  I couldn't show them before now as the blocks were a surprise for them.  Everyone in our group made a heart block and gave to them.  Our party was Thursday night and it was alot of fun and the heart blocks were great.  I didn't take pics of all of the different blocks but I'll show you those when they put their quilts together.  Here's my blocks.  These were just simple little hearts with a few different stitches from my machine but I added some of my tatting around the blocks.  We were asked to do one in pastels and one in brighter colors....





Diane and Judy loved all of their blocks!

I did show the girls at Tatting on Tuesday night and they liked the blocks too.  I had done the tatting a while back and didn't have any purpose for it except to put it on something like a pillow or maybe a hankie so this worked out really well.  I have a little bit left and I'll make something else with the leftover lace.  I guess I could have put more tatting on it too but I ran out of time....

Love your Row by Row quilt... looking very nice!

Excellent use of your tatting around those hearts... no wonder the recipients were pleased!

The tatting around the hearts is so beautiful! You have such good ideas and make such sweet quilt blocks.

Great idea for the tatting. My daughter tats - maybe I could get her to make a few strips for me.
