A Little of This and A Little of That

Here in Michigan we are really getting mid to late October weather.  I am not turning on the furnace yet, it is too soon.  I just need to keep moving to keep things warm.

Here are a few things I’ve been working on:

My September Queen’s block choice, Blossom Heart Quilts – Bee Hive Checker block.  It really worked up quick, even when I had to tear it apart because I had the lower right HST the wrong way.  But it is now done and in the mail.



I’m moving along rather nicely on my September OMG of making one block a day for #bluerkblocks.  As of yesterday I have 24 completed.  Not bad for the first week.


For those of you that have read much of my posts, I don’t normally have more than one project going at a time.  But this month is not the norm.  Here is a Christmas quilt I started and hope to have finished this month too.  I am repeating my last Christmas quilt, Cookie Exchange pattern.  This will be Quilt #41, since I started quilting two years ago.

But wait, let’s add another new quilt into the pile.  Project Jelly Roll Day next Saturday, September 16.  I have a few jelly rolls:

Now I just need to decide on a pattern and pick a roll.

Are you sewing on Jelly Roll day?  What pattern are you using?  Which jelly roll are you picking?


I am linking up with a few friends today:

    Your #bluerkblocks looks fabulous -and I love that Christmas fabric! Also love that yummy stack of jelly rolls! I’m glad you mentioned Project Jelly Roll – I have several JR’s languishing on a shelf, I should go grab one and choose a pattern so I’m ready to go on the day.

    Love that Bee Hive Checker Block. Thanks for the link. So many interesting ways to lay them out! What final Christmas fabrics, too. I get tired of red and green.
