Rainy Weekend Stuff


We've had a storm front stalled over the area for 3 days. Rain in the lower elevations and snow (SNOW!) in the mountains. Staying indoors resulted in lots of prep work:
  • Made up two kits of this pattern from the Moda Bake Shop. As luck would have it I have twenty-four 30's reproduction FQ given to me so I was able to cut out 2 kits and I hope there is enough left for a pieced binding. Isn't that just the cutest pattern? Love the prairie points.
  • EQ7 Upgrade arrived on Friday and got installed. I'm sad because there's been no time to play with it.
  • Finished up another applique block in the Hugs and Kisses BOM but need to take a photo. But I am still two blocks behind and did not get any more prepped.
  • While I was cutting kits, I cut two more for donation baby quilts using some panels.
  • And then remembered two more panels in the stash and dug them out. I cut one more kit this morning from one panel and the other panel went into the garage sale items. It was of a rainbow trout that could be either made into a fish shaped pillow or appliqued onto something else.


  1. Wow, sounds like you got so much done! Lots of pieces cut out...let the piecing begin. Send some of your rain, please??

  2. Your rainy days now, sounds like my rainy days last week.
    That Pinwheel quilt design is really cute, can't wait to see which fabrics you choose.

  3. Clearly your "get busy" cells got 'watered' with that weather. We had 1 1/2 days of sun (Sat & Sun) but now the grey is back. Alas! You inspire me to get busy.

  4. It looks like you've made the best of it with getting so many wonderful projects ready. The pinwheels quilt is cute.

  5. Make hay while the sun shines - make quilty projects when it rains! Heee!
    Don't send us rain, we are water logged here.

  6. Now you're ready to sit and sew and sew and sew.

  7. we're wet too, 6-8" in the last week. Lots of flooding. But, at least we aren't dried up and brown.

  8. Wow, I love the pattern, the colors look so fresh, and the size looks like something I could undertake.
