    What do you do when you're not allowed to stand?

    Did the stack & whack yesterday using a Bethany Reynolds fabric. The scrappy I made last week from the new American Patchwork & Quilting Supplement. Since I'm not weight bearing right now, they will have to wait to get quilted.

    Are you saying you have made two quilt tops in two weeks? Wow, congratulations. I love scrappy quilts. Hope you get to 'standing' soon.
    Enjoy the day, Chickadee_42us

    Both are so pretty. I especially love the scrapy one.

    Very pretty tops! Sorry you are under the weather and hope you can get your beauties quilted soon. I love Stack & whack, OBW and kaleidoscope patterns. I've been wanting to try the cute wine glass coasters from her site.

    Sorry to hear you cannot stand; hoping you will heal/recover quickly and painlessly!! Your quilts are beautiful! Love them both, but lean toward the scrappy as I have several "in progress."

    I've never done a stack and whack. It looks hard. Very hard. Very pretty, too. Love the scrappy second quilt also. Very pretty. Great job!!!!

    I don't do S+W but really like the variety of sizes and shapes in this one. And I LOVE the scrappy. What beautiful colors! Being less than 100% is challenging but if there is a will - there's a way. I cross stitched left handed when my right wrist was in a cast and drew up lots of new ideas.

    I love the star quilt - just made a dashboard cover intended for a classic VW Beetle, only to discover the classic VW Beetles don't have dashboards! Oh well, it can be a back seat cover, or a table runner or a dashboard cover for another car. Pics to come shortly as I made two, but one was done with the Rising Star pattern shown in your star quilt, with a beetle fabric fussy-cut in the center to showcase the car. Turned out very cute!

    If you can do all this sitting, I can only imagine what you do normally! Both are really pretty quilts.
    Live and let live!

    Both so pretty. I love scrappy, what a great setting and what a wonderful job you did with the lights and darks to make it show up so well

    I'm awestruck. Hope you're on the mend and up and around in no time. Very productive way to spend the time laid up.
