This week has been more productive for quilting than most weeks of late, although nowhere near what I would like to get done. It is such a balancing act, isn't it? Trying to squeeze in time for the things we love, like quilting, around the things we need to do like go to work, cooking, laundry, etc. I am so fortunate to have a sweet husband who takes care of the main portion of the household chores like grocery shopping, he is better about keeping the house clean than I am, and most nights he has dinner going before I get home. I am a very lucky woman!
Anyway, back to this week's quilting. I finished up another string block for the Scrap Club quilt. This time it was a pinwheel block.
The majority of my quilting time this week was spent on the Storm at Sea quilt. I am trying to get all the different units made so I can start putting the parts together. There is still plenty to do, but I have been able to check a couple of items off the list. For the first time in several years, I was able to spend most of Saturday, National Quilting Day, doing just that--quilting! I must have been at the sewing machine or ironing board for about 7 hours, my idea of a perfect day! I wish I could do that more often.
Here is a collection of most of the completed parts for the Storm at Sea quilt. I will try to get a photo with these up on the design wall for Monday's post. I still need to make more of the diamond units and the small square-in-a-squares.
Here are the numbers for this week:
