    Sewing Weekend

    I have just had a lovely 4 day weekend at our fishing shack and got lots of sewing done as the weather was rather dismal outside.

    Most of my sewing at the lakes involves using scrap fabrics so Friday morning I turned out tubs of scraps onto the bed in my sewing room ready for the sewing to start. All of these quilts are foundation pieced.

    Friday I worked on adding more rows to this scrap quilt. (Pic 2)
    Saturday I started this little I Spy quilt and I am really pleased with the way it is turning out. (Pic 3 and 4) I now need to source some more I Spy pictures so I can add to this quilt.
    Sunday and Monday morning I did a heap more log cabin blocks for this scrappy quilt. (Pic 5)

    As you can see these projects are 'works in progress' and apart from the I Spy quilt which I brought home to finish, the others stay at the shack and will be worked on next trip (late July).

    I would dearly love to have a little scrappy quilt show next March at our shack - I have dreamed how I would set it up on the verandah just have to convince DH that it will work out just the way I see it in my dream.

    Wow! Every one of the quilts is wonderful. I especially like the way you put the I Spy quilt together.

    I like the I spy quilt the best, but they all are great. I don't remember ever seeing an I spy quilt before. Is it pretty easy? You sure kept your sewing machine humming every day, good luck to you, and your DH. It is always great to have a back up plan when you are on vacation, just in case it rains.

    I love scrappy quilts! You really accomplished a lot in your time at the cabin. It must have been a good feeling to have when you left after getting so much done (although I often think I should have accomplished more :-)

    How big are your I-Spy blocks? I may have some that I could send to you - RAOK - Random Act of Kindness.

    I like them all and I'm particularly impressed with the red & white one hanging on the wall. And of course I envy you your fishing cabin and the four days of rainy weather up in the woods.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    NikkiLu, I need the I Spy picture to be at least 4-1/2 inches x 4-1/2 inches. I would love to get some different fabrics to go into the quilt. PM me if you can help out.
