New sewing projects

I have been keeping busy in the sewing room. It will have to be cleaned soon. I really make a mess doing projects. We got the carpets cleaned in the living room and computer room. Good job done. The steps are left. Maybe tomorrow we will get them done.
 I really like to make these table toppers.I have 2 more ready to set together.

 This is the first block in a BOM.http://country-threads-chicken-scratch.com/?p=3073
 These stacks are odds and ends I cut in 1 1/2 inches strips and sewed them together.Cut them into blocks and they are ready to make a quilt.I need more so as I finish projects I will add the the pile.
This last one is a doll quilt I made. I just wanted to sew something again so started with scraps. I also wanted to try tying a quilt. That is hard on fingers. I'll use floss the next time not yarn.
Hope everyone has a good next week. Stay warm. Spring is on the way. j

making a quilt

After Christmas and the new year I needed to sew.Something ---anything so I started sewing 5 inch sq's, from mother in law's stash, into pinwheels. I intended on making just a small quilt but it turned into a queen size. I used what I had. I did have to buy batting and am ready to put it together.I will tie this one.


I had a few of the side blocks left over so I made a doll quilt.Working out of my comfort zone.Don't do much with pink.

 The birds are loving the Christmas tree. It is fun to watch them. I have had a couple of sparrows with a lot of white feathers.I've not seen that before.They love to throw the seed out of the new big feeder onto the ground.
Have a great week j
