What I did this week

I am a science geek and wow I love this.  made of pure geeky awesomeness

so with that out of the way.  I have sewn a fair amount this week did I finish any project no.  I worked on the scriffly quilt for my new nephew.  I got about 3/4 of the way done with a baby quilt for a collage friend.  I would have finished it if I hadn't run out of the yellow fabric I was using for a border.  I got enough to do the inner border and the binding and should be able to finish the top tonight.  it is a super cute disappearing nine patch center with a twin in inner yellow border, an 2.5 inch pieced border and another yellow border and then pink border.  the quilt is super cute, and perfect for a baby girl. 

I, as usual, have way too many projects in progress.  and a couple weeks ago I discovered the pinwheel sampler quilt along at p.s. I quilt.  I fell in love with the project and of course they were already on block seven.  I took some time deciding what fabric I wanted to do it in.  and settled on midnight garden by maywood studios and white as my background fabric.  I also decided that this would be a hand project.  I am going to at least hand piece the top using english paper piecing.  I need a project I can carry with me and stuff and to keep my hands busy when we have friends over to play games on saturdays nights.  I am not a night person and have been known to crash out at 10pm while they keep going on the game for several more hours.  if I keep my hands busy  I can make it till the end with out falling asleep.  I got all of the pieces cut out for all of the blocks and I finished the the first block of block one. yesterday I started the first of block 5.  yeah I am doing them out of order but I reach into the big bag and grab a smaller ziplock bag to randomize the placement of the different pinwheels.  since when I finish one pinwheel I am going to sew it to the previous pinwheel, top assembly as I go.
