Week 16 of Project 52 is also complete! 

 These bag are so much fun to make.  I bet I could kit up a bunch more, but for now I'm going to concentrate on Project 52.

Week 27 Of Project 52

Week 27 of Project 52 is complete!  It's the "So Easy"Twist" Bag pattern.. 

I love the focus fabric.  I did gift this bag to a friend who has a greenhouse and has a table at a local Farmer's Market.

Week 21 Of Project 52

Week 21 of Project 52 has reached the finished line.  The bindings are all sewn down and they are done!  The pattern is called "Through the Looking Glass" by It's Sew Emma.

So exciting to have these 2 projects done even though they counted as only one.  

I did a little more cleaning out.  I came across these old Stretch and Sew patterns of my mother's.  She was such an amazing seamstress!  I thought I might try to use one of these patterns one day,  but I just don't enjoy making clothes like I use to.  I'd rather make quilts.  My sister feels the same way about making clothes, so off to the Guild garage sale they will go.

 Hello!  I'm back from my little catch up break.  I wish I could say I completed tons of projects, but most of what I have been doing has been outside.  My garden is looking great and the flowering bushes have been beautiful.

Crab Apple tree

Flowering Quince 

Vinca and daffodils

Daffodil.  (a little dirty from the rain)

Sewing will resume and projects will be completed!

Gardening Time

 Gardening time is starting up in my little area of the world.  And because of that, Project 52 is going to have to slow up.  I'm so far behind on my projects anyway, ack!  So for the next week or so I will be working on UFOs of my UFOs.  LOL

I have a couple of quilts to get pin basted and quilted.  I have a couple of quilts needing backings.  And a couple of quilts needing bindings.  They need to get to the finish line.  So that's my goal this week, get some of those Project 52 projects done!

In addition, flower beds need weeding and mulching.  Spring is here!

Nine Patch

The Nine Patch is further along.  Yesterday I pulled out my bin of Homespun fabrics and cut some 12.5 inch solid blocks.  Then, using the design floor, I figure out how to set the nine patch blocks with the solid blocks.  It's all ready to sew!  YEA!

I showed this one to you a couple of posts ago, but didn't really give much information about it.  I found the center panel a couple of years ago and used the pattern "Sidelights".  You can find the pattern here

I also have located some backing fabric in my stash and hope to get it pin basted soon.

Week 28 Of Project 52

 Week 28 of Project 52 will be some nine patch blocks I have made out of leftovers of Homespun fabrics.  I started making these nine patches with the leftovers when I was making rag quilts.  Plus I found some rag quilt blocks that were made and ready to be sewn together.  

In the box there are also some 12.5 inch solid squares as I was thinking of alternating a solid with a nine patch block.  So that's this week's Project 52.
