Cornerstones done and pieced border added! from Pamela Quilts

I was really happy and relieved to get the cornerstones done today for the Brothers and Sisters quilt.  Of course, there was a bit of unsewing to do as I found one more upside down unit, but the corner units were sewn on without too much drama!

I was a little nervous about whether I had done my math correctly - it seems like I've had plenty of issues with these borders and I wouldn't have been surprised if they had been the wrong size!  I did a bit of a happy dance when they pinned on perfectly!  No ...

Progress on Brothers and Sisters from Pamela Quilts

There is a finish in my sights on this project!  I managed to cut 6 of the pink pieces wrong, then had to re-cut them, but I persevered and now the top and bottom orders are pieced!

Now I just need to piece the cornerstones and I can sew these babies onto the quilt - then just one more solid border and the top is ready to go.

Also I gave a customer at the quilt shop a great tip today.  She was trying to arrange some fabrics in order from light to dark.
I showed her how to use her ...

Friday Fun... from Pamela Quilts

Today I took a day to relax, since tomorrow I work all day at the quilt shop and I've been working hard all week!  I had so much fun making Jen's Color challenge block for January that I decided to get ahead of the game and get the block done for February right away.  Some lovely pinks from my Island Batik stash!

Then I made a pink ribbon block to mail to a friend  (more Island Batik fabric):

I also added the pieced side borders to the Brothers and Sisters quilt I am working on.  Those borders are ...

Organizing my quilting projects! from Pamela Quilts

Busy time in my sewing room right now!  I've been hard at work this week making twin quilts of my Twinkle Star design!  It's pretty fast making two of the same thing at the same time - and you get double the satisfaction at the end of sewing all your blocks:

Those two extra blocks are the beginnings of my Blockheads II quilt.  I am sooo far behind with my blocks, but I swear I am going to catch up...I don't know when, but I will!

I also did some machine quilting this week and got my ...

Monday Motivation from Pamela Quilts

I finished up my last wedding wedding project last night, so this week should be mostly quilting. Yay!

My design wall is so full, but what I really want to get going on in the Brothers and Sisters quilt.  I am halfway done with the blocks, and am ready to get the rest finished up.

The quote I picked to motivate me this week doesn't show up well on this busy block, but it says:

"Life is something like a remarkable, exciting puzzle.  It comes piece by piece in packages marked days."  John Powell

Don't you just love ...
