A little bit of sewing

Bom Well I can't say my enthusiam for sewing is back completely, but I did a little sewing this weekend, and I thank everyone for their suggestions of things I could do to spark my interest again.

I did get a new collection of fat quarters and I have a new quilt project cooking in my brain, but I need some background fabric before I can begin cutting it out.

In the meantime, I made the first two blocks of the Designer Mystery BOM from Fat Quarter Shop, using Moda's Peace on Earth fabrics.  The August block should be arriving any day, and I also started work on a Mary Engelbreit BOM that I signed up for in April when I visited In Between Stitches with Nicole.

Oh and I did sneak in a few hours at the APNQ quilt show in Seattle last Friday.  The show was very inspiring - the quilts featured are a real work of art, nothing I could ever hope to accomplish with my ordinary quilts!


  1. You'll get there! Good start!

  2. Tell us more about that Mary Englebreit BOM... :D

  3. I'm sure you will get inspired again...working a little at a time just keeps you going. I know just what you mean about the art quilts. You stated it very well...I too am an ordinary quilter. However, there are moments of pure genius (unfortunately, not frequently!). LOL. Hang in there!

  4. Maybe I will get caught up with the Designer BOM this weekend. I have received only two blocks so far. I like what I see in your picture!!

  5. Lisa, they are beautiful!! I really need to get started on mine. Block 3 came the other day and I haven't made any of them yet. (sigh) School is almost to start and then things might settle down a little bit.

  6. "...nothing you could hope to accomplish with your ORDINARY quilts!" Well sure. Send those dern Ordinaries here! LeeHaven will take 'em in.
