Measuring, Cutting, Sewing


(repeat)


Yes, today there was lots of measuring, cutting and sewing. Made for a very happy ME. :-)



My Joyful Packages (aka Flurry by Kate Spain for Moda) quilt is officially a flimsy. And, guess what???? I have some yardage that I believe will work perfectly as the packing. Seriously, wouldn't that make a very happy you? LOL




Made with Joy by Kate Spain for Moda




In 2008 I signed up for a beautiful Designer Mystery BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop. I diligently made the first six blocks and then stopped. Don't ask me why. Who knows why I do what I do. LOL Anyway, not long ago I decided it was time to locate the rest of the block kits and get busy. That finally happened today! Shocked??? It's OK, so am I. LOL



I immediately cut and pieced block #7 with happy results. :-) I was going to continue in that fashion and then decided I'd just cut the remaining five blocks.




Wheee doggies - tomorrow I'll be sitting at my machine piecing these beauties. :-)

I'm looking for a volunteer to come help me dig for the finishing kit - are you available - anyone?


LOL

I wish you a very pieceful day.

In Friendship!

WooHoo a finish!! Congrats to you. Good luck on your search, wish I could help. How fun would that be to get to visit and play with fabric.

I have the same Mystery BOM and did the very same thing. I re-started the blocks earlier this year until I made a mistake, in the cutting, which left me a little short of fabric for a block. So then I put it down again :-( I love the fabric, so maybe I will dig it out, once again, and try to finish making the blocks.

Cheryl said...

Love, love your FLURRY, and look at you go on your BOM...WOW!!! The Dots and I will hit the road and be there to help you find your finishing kit (or make a big old mess) :-)!!!

Carol said...

Looks good Darlene.

Lori said...

Beautiful quilt top Darlene!! I love the BOM fabric. I'm sure you'll have that top together in no time as well. Woo-Hoo!!

Cheryl said...

Joyful packages is so festive! Good luck with finishing your BOM...it will be festive too!

I think 2008 was the year of the missing mojo that you later found under the bathroom sink. And if I were just 2000 miles closer, I would love to come over and help!

Sue said...

Congrats on finishing your JOY quilt ! LOVE IT !

I really love the fabric you are using for your 2008 BOM. WHat a fun quilt to finish next

I absolutely love your cheerful Christmas packages and how great to have backing fabric that coordinates. The fabrics for your BOM quilt are just my style and it looks like the finished quilt will be beautiful with all the rich colors. It must feel really good to be so productive and accomplish so much this week. I can't wait to see the 2 quilts completely done.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

I'll be right over~ oh wait, it may take a few days. :-) You'll probably have found it by then, so next time! I would love to come and play with you! LOL Love your top and your blocks are wonderful. Have a happy weekend!

AnnieO said...

My daughter lives nearby--I could send her over :) Love your Flurry flimsy and yes, it is always good to have a backing fabric standing by! I have an unfinished BOM that needs a good long cutting session too. It is on my list...

Linda said...

I love your Christmas package quilt. I did one last year but it's not completed yet. I've got the center completed and decided to do the border differently. I think I've changed my mind after seeing yours. I'm going to pull it out this weekend and finish it this way too. Thanks for the inspiration. Have fun with your BOM!

Allie said...

Oh Darlene that's cute! Good job girl! I'd love to come help you find your finishing kit for the other one - not sure I could find my way out of my own sewing room though, lol!

Monica said...

That is one cute quilt top! I made a quilt like that but with I think it was a Sandy Gervais pattern. Mine's not near as cute as your's...hrmph.

Sinta Renee said...

Oh! I love seeing what you have going on here! You will have your BOM done by Christmas at this speed! And presents ta'boot!

Vicky said...

Let's see. If I leave right now, I'll be there in time for breakfast! :)

Sherry said...

Your Joyful Packages flimsy looks awesome - what a fun quilt. That BOM is going to be just gorgeous. You've been busy - you go girl! :) Thanks for sharing.

Wendy said...

The gift boxes is fantastic, it's worth repeating. Good luck with finishing your BOM.

I have such a connection with you that it sometimes freaks me out, - in a good way. I made those presents last summer. They are my UFO challenge for September so I got them out last weekend and got the whole top done in 2 days. Yours looks amazing. I think you sent your energy my way. Let me know what to work on next!
