In the Groove

It's been feeling real good to do some sewing. I don't feel like I am getting very far though. But since there is no hurry that's ok. I have about half the blocks done for my latest. I'm only showing what fits on the wall at Studio 3 here. I'm going to need a name for this thing. Any suggestions?

I also dug into my drawer of Civil War prints. OOhhhh that felt good. No concrete plans yet but they're formulating.

I've also finalized plans for our next raffle quilt. I will share the plans later but for now I'll just say it will be blue and cream and use this star pattern. I had the gals at Studio 3 try out my directions. I've chosen this star cause the way I make 'em the points float so we can trim the blocks to all the same size if needed. And since as many as a dozen ladies may make the stars there's a good chance we will need to do some trimming

Tomorrow is quilting at church. Our local nursing home has asked us for muffs for the residents hands. We love the idea. Basically all we need to do is make a little quilt lined with fleece and sew it into a tube. Okay, just not in that order.  I wouldn't be surprised if we make a few extra for ourselves!

Time to join the linky party at Judy's. Guess I will be blogging for a while.

Very nice. I have gotten stuck on one bock designs and need to broaden my horizon.

Love your latest! I may have to make it. Would you share or let us know where your group got the pattern for the cuffs. My church group would like to make some also. Thanks for sharing!

Your blue/grey quilt is beautiful. I'm not sure why but it makes me think of gem stones, though not sure what kind....

I like your stars, too. What a good idea to having them floating so they can be trimmed.

Did you finish that quilt yet, and given it a name? if not I've got a suggestion, the Blue and the Gray. This is fun reading your blog backwards!
