Not a lot to report but have been keeping out of mischief! LOL  I finished putting borders on a 
log cabin quilt center that my daughter Brenda pieced. Also pieced a back for it and currently loading the quilt on the frame. Hope to quilt and bind it this week.

Brends's log cabin quilt
Since the weather has not been cooperating -- Snow, Snow, Snow---- I couldn't open windows and start airing out the house after a long winter. Soooo -- I decided the stash is so far out of control and started to purge some of the old fabrics. These fabrics have been cut into patient bags for the Coborn's Cancer Center. The scraps left after cutting the bags are being cut into usable sizes for future quilts. So far I have completed another 10 bags, three are in process and approximately another 50 bags cut out. Each bag uses approximately 1/3 yard of fabric. You know what --- It hasn't appeared to even make a dent in the stash.  <Grin>  Guess I will be sewing for many years. Too many years working in a quilt shop surrounded by all those wonderful fabrics did it to me!!  LOL That is my story and I am sticking with it.

Stack of cut out Patient Bags
On Sew-Sew Monday, Maureen brought her Bulls Eye quilt top.  What a great quilt!

Mary brought a star quilt top she has completed. What a fun quilt.

Connie has a quilt started with a block using four pinwheels with a nine-patch surrounded by sashing. It will be absolutely smashing.

I'll end with what it looks like out my window on March 31st.  Spring will come!!!!  <Grin>

Hugs to all and make sure you hop over to Patchwork Times and see what others are doing.

Hugs, Beth


  1. Your stack of bags cut out look like fabulous fabrics! But the arctic north is pretty forbidding, hope you get some thawing soon. The log cabin is really pretty and that's second generation of quilting, YEAY!!!

    1. Both of my daughters have sewn quilts, as well as, other crafts/sewing, just not a lot due to busy careers. Would be nice if we had more time together. The snow may start to go in the next few days but there is so much it is going to take a while. Suppose to get up to 50 tomorrow. Yeah!!!!! I just may have to add some civil war fabrics, thanks to your wonderful link!! LOL
