I thought I would sleep late Saturday since Carmen wasn't here to wake me up but another grandchild, Trent had an early soccer game. We went to watch him play soccer (well, he ran around on the field more than he played) along with all the other 4 year olds learning to play! It was fun to watch. My husband and I had some errands to run and we ran around all day. I didn't get any sewing in at all yesterday but I did have fun and rested too.
I got up early and sewed this morning and now I'm going to sew a little bit more too. I did finish putting the binding on my scrappy half square triangle quilt earlier in the week and wanted to show you that one. I worked on this one all last year as a leader/ender project and finished putting it together and gave it to my friend to quilt for me. I got it back and finally put the binding on to call this one a finish. This is the second one I've made like this. The first one was made a long time ago, maybe 8-10 years at least, with my small quilting group. We made it as a swap quilt. I made mine and gave it away. I saw the pattern in my files last year and decided I would remake it for me. I started making these randomly and just throwing them in a box when I got through with one and they started piling up...it's fun to see a project come to life after you haven't really been "working" on it.. That's why I like the Leader/Ender method. You work on a project and don't really even work at it until you have alot of pieces to put together. I have two more Leader/Ender projects in the works now and I'm not sure how big they'll be... This one is on my Get It Done Challenge list for April, so I can mark one off my list!
I also wanted to show you my blocks I finished this morning and Friday night....This month is green for the Rainbow scrap challenge and I pulled out some green scraps to work with. I made my Boxed in Block for this month and the others are The Carolina Chain blocks I've been doing all year.
I made 20 blocks Friday night and then two more blocks this morning along with the Boxed in Block. Now, I'm sewing on my Civil War quilt and later today, I've got a binding to sew too for slow stitch Sunday.
One last thing, don't forget to go to the post below and leave a comment if you haven't already. I'm giving away books for the Giving Quilt and the drawing is today. You have until 6:00, Central Time and then I'm going to draw.
