    After a week of hardly any sewing I got to work on one today. Got all the pieces cut for the next quilt and layed out to sew. It's all HSTs except for the large background pieces. I have a list of what to pair up and how many like "make two of 1+1", etc.

    Having a drink of iced tea, it's 97 degrees here! Then load a full bobbin and go to town.

    Whew! All of the HST are sewn, cut, and some have been ironed. That's it for tonight before I get any stiffer than I am. :wink:

    You're a machine! So organised and neat, and your colour choices are awesome.

    I sooooo want to be adopted by you! ;-)

    It helps me to start out a project by cleaning up the leavings from the last one, getting tools and supplies organized again, and clearing off my work spaces. There aren't distractions of some other fabric getting in the way, moving things out of my way, or not having room to work.

    My daughter said she didn't want to go back either and she wouldn't if her daughter didn't have to be back in school. Do you babysit? :lol:

    This is the center piece. The fabric looks a little muddy all together so I'm really glad that it's for a man!

    My youngest is 7, but the oldest will be "legal" to babysit in January next year. We're counting the days! LOL

    The colours are awesome.... think "masculine" rather than muddy! ;-)

    Yes, it's the Indigo, Pewter, and Honey collection by Judie Rothermel. The pattern is HSTs but comes out looking like a Broken Star.

    I just love the new Viking machine Speed piecing is even faster when I have it set at needle up. After I sew a pair and stop, it has the needle up and the foot down. I tap the pedal (while picking up the next pair and making sure they are aligned) and it goes to needle down, foot up. I put the next pair in and start sewing again. No reaching for the presser foot lever. I prefer it this way rather than the needle down position because I don't like the presser foot lifting every time I stop.

    Sometimes muddy is the right thing to do even when you're a lady. :lol:

    Not much to show yet. Just a mountain, or a few hills at least, of ironing to do. The pattern directions are really nice. Along with colored and numbered pictures of the sections it has the entire quilt layed out by the sections and the fabrics numbered 1 thru 5 and B for the background.
