Spice of Life

005

This is my design wall this weekend.  They say variety is the spice of life…well I have a lot of variety.  1. I’m always working on my Florabunda applique blocks…(and someday I will actually finish them.)  2. I started making my “Cold Wind Blows” baskets.  I decided to shrink the pattern by half and make a little quilt.  3. My bow tie leaders & enders blocks are multiplying quickly.  I finish a few with every one of my 4. Jacob’s Ladder quilt blocks. 

Speaking of which…

I only have 7 more blocks to go to finish my design.  Very scrappy isn’t it?  You should see my much lighter scrap bins.  I still have some rearranging to do on this quilt and then decide on a border. 

Besides a little sewing today, I also helped Mr. Sunshine install new outside light fixtures and made applesauce from our apple tree. 

Our house smelled so wonderful!

A lot of beutiful projects. I have my basket blocks too in a box, but you now gave me an idea to reduce the size. Maybe I start all over again :)

Great things happening at your place! I just love your Jacob's Ladder. Definitely a quilt in my future. I ventured over to peek at your DJ blocks (since I've got one going) - you've got a nice collection.

All your projects are wonderful....I loved your beginnings and enders idea.
I want to do a Klosje quilt....If you get it all ready and do them as a begin and end it's like your not really doing a quilt. LOL

Wonderful projects......I really like the idea about the leaders and enders...I was thinking about doing a Klosje quilt. That would be a fun way of doing it. It's like not making one at all...LOL

I was also wondering are you doing your Dear Jane quilt by hand or machine?

Had to comment on your bow ties and jacobs ladder blocks. I also have those two as works in progress. Mine are scrappy too.
Love all your projects!

I love your scrappy Jacob's Ladder! I would love to make one...one of these days!

Like all your projects but I love your Jacob's ladder blocks. And they are like a free quilt since they are your scraps.

My eyes were immediately drawn to the Floribunda blocks. You can tell what is my favorite on your design wall.

Looks like you have lots of fun projects on the go. I love having more than one project too -- sometimes you just need them for different reasons.

Marina said...

Fantastic projects you have!!

Lovely!!! Did you save me some apple sauce? :)

Lynda said...

A scrappy girl after my own heart! I love all your projects, but especially the scrap quilt. I've worked out that it is a 9 patch. What size did you make the components?
