SCRAPPY ROUNDABOUT from Kwilty Pleasures

I was cleaning up my sewing room and came across this 
scrappy book full of wonderful patterns.
And when I say...I was cleaning up...
that was summer 2021!

I found a pattern called Roundabout...that uses 2 1/2 x 5" pieces.
That means, to me, get into my charm stash
and scraps and get something made.
Sometimes I just need a simple and fast make!
(Fast is this was all decided in 2021
and its now 2022)

I have over 70 "hoarded" charm packs!

How about this incredible find!

And Tiddly Winks may have been ...

UFO INSANITY! from Kwilty Pleasures

I thought I was doing sew good!
I had finished 3 UFOs in 3 Weeks!
I had started these patterns all last fall!
Then they waited...

A quilt top from this pattern was finished July 2021!
I just didn't have the courage to applique the very large 
SWELL SANTA onto it!

And this pattern was cut and partially sewn.

I am working on posts for these 3 finishes but
in the meantime...I forgot all about these 3 projects.

I need a small Christmas Charley Harper
wall hanging for my guest bedroom.

I have no idea what these summer ...

FLAIRING CHARM PATTERN from Kwilty Pleasures

Because I always have more projects started than I realize...
I didn't disappoint myself while at the beach.
I took a fun pattern along called "FLAIR'
 and thought I could work on this if I have time.
It uses 4 charm packs and background fabrics
cut into charm sizes of 5"

Of course I had enough charm packs,
actually CHRISTMAS charm packs.
The Christmas Card, Eat Drink and be Ugly,
The Cookie Exchange and Mistletoe.

I cut lots of scrappy low volume 5" squares.

What I didn't realize was...the pattern instructions
were to lay the skinny strips ...

A WALK IN THE WOODS from Kwilty Pleasures

I had a fun time sewing at this beach in April.
My Instagram friend, Cory, who lives in Alabama,
 and I decided to do a sewcial distance project apart/together. 
We opened it to others as a sewalong...and a few
people began it and some finished it. 

I have had the 'free'  TYPE IT pattern by Zen Chic on my radar
for awhile and its a jelly roll quilt.
I didn't want anything that would take too much time...
cause THE BEACH!

I found a Jelly roll by Aneela Hoey in my stash.
"A Walk in The Woods ...

STARGAZER TESTER! from Kwilty Pleasures

I feel very lucky to be a pattern tester for
Frannie B Quilt Company.
Corrine Wells comes up with some great designs.
The mission is taking designs of fabric and blocks 
from traditional colors and style into modern beauties.

Stargazer had me working my testing skills to the limit!

I always make test blocks as part of my testing process.
 These Charley Harper stars will become units in another project.

I soon found out there were LOTS of flying geese.
That's not sew bad, but the instructions made them
one at a time....brutal.
Of course, that was the ...

FIRST 2022 FINISH 4-PATCH SLICE from Kwilty Pleasures

One of the sewcial distance quilts Kim Hensley and I sewed in 2021
was making a fun 4-Patch Slice quilt.
I  finished it as my first 2022 project!
Sometimes we begin, get the top done and then it’s timing
to get the quilts quilted and bound.

I used Wonder fabric line by Kate and Birdie
and it was perfect for a baby quilt.
The pattern I selected was by Inspiring Creations.
I like the different layouts she offered
and the wider insert strips.

Kim used some of her Bonnie & Camile fabrics.

I loved the way my baby quilt turned ...

FRIENDS WHO CUT LOOSE! from Kwilty Pleasures

Who would have ever imagined that in January, 2022
we would still be dealing with the damn corona virus
 and all the ugly heads that have mutated.

I could go on a rant right now...
but that won't help get shots into arms.

Sew, I will talk about how I deal with the insanity.
Sewing has saved me and this
"CUT LOOSE" pattern along with my sewcial distance partner,
 Kim Hensley, gives me focus and goals to meet for a beautiful finish!

This quilt is our 7th sewcial distance sewing
"apart/together" since April, 2020 

I had a great ...

2022 IS HERE! from Kwilty Pleasures

Happy New Year to all my followers.
After 10 years of blogging...I am still here
and sew are you.  Thank you for hanging in with me.
I often think about throwing in the blog towel,
but I still enjoy it...even if it has fallen from favor
in the social media world. 

I guess I still have more to say!

How can it be 2022 already.
2021 has been almost as bad as 2020 with COVID still
busting our chops.  BUT  fully vaccinated makes me feel
much safer and sew much wiser!

I do have lots of new projects ...
