Another Block Done

I finished another block last night. This one is called the Hourglass. It used the same technique that I used in the last block. I'm moving right along through these. They are getting easier and I'm sewing faster.

New Block

I finished another block this evening. This one is called the Star and I think it is my favorite so far. I seem to be getting faster at getting these blocks cut out and stitched together. I am behind and would like to be caught up before too much longer.

New Block

I finished another block this evening. This one is the Pinwheel. It wasn't very hard to do.

My Quilt

I believe I had mentioned that I wasn't stitching and I'm not..... However, I am quilting. I found a block of the month online that I fell in love with and couldn't resist. It is 3 blocks a month for 5 months and July will be the last 3 blocks. I am sewing these by hand only because when I began I didn't have my sewing machines with me. I have them now but it's too late to sew by machine. The quilt is called "Amish With A Twist". The first block I completed is called Rail Fence. My second block is called Four-Patch. The third is Nine-Patch. The block I am currently working on is the Pinwheel. I have the triangles done but just need to put them together. I have alot of blocks left to do but am enjoying this so much!

Well, I realize that it has been over a year since I have even looked at this blog. Last time that I posted, I was pretty disgusted with myself for not stitching or blogging or doing anything. A lot has happened to me in a year..... I lost my job in May 2011. I know that sounds terrible but it actually worked to my advantage. I moved to New York to live with my boyfriend of 2 years now. I've been here almost a year. I'm not working.....haven't really needed to but I am getting bored and would like to find something, even if it's just part time. I'm still not stitching. Actually I have been quilting. I'm enjoying it very much and it's holding my interest more than stitching seems to right now. I will try and get pictures of the blocks I have completed and post them here. At least I feel like I am actually doing something creative and not just watching tv constantly. I don't know if anyone is still looking for updates on my blog or not. If you do, thank you for reading and hopefully I will have pictures to show in a day or so. If not, that's my own fault for not being more interesting. LOL
