florabunda again from Making A Lather

Warning: this project is not anywhere on my goal list for the year. I was just straightening the project area.
Last week I shared florabunda quilt, and wanted to decide if I should finish the blocks and put it away for awhile, or just put it away. I had pieces cut, and, I was at least 4 blocks short of a quilt. While I was counting and figuring, my head said - all the pieces are cut, just...... sew a few.
Next thing I know, I have 52. Well, that doesn't make a layout for a quilt. If I cut ...

florabunda from Making A Lather

It has been awhile since I have had this project out to work on making progress. Since it had been so long, I was planning to send it to the project closet and ufo official status. But, I wanted to see where I stand and maybe make notes.



I have 44 blocks finished and need at least 48, but, I have more cut. I'm afraid if I put it away, I won't remember how I want to make the quilt. Florabunda is a free pattern on quiltville.

this and that from Making A Lather

It was a long weekend, I have been slowly cleaning for company and Thanksgiving. Not my favorite thing to do. So, I do it very slowly with as many distractions as I can find. I did dig the Christmas tree out of storage. So far it looks a little pathetic.
I made another sand castle block. This quilt is in the book string frenzy. I started it here and here and here.


...and 2 more florabunda blocks. This is a free quilt at quiltville- more here.



 ...and another row of basket blocks. more here

this and that from Making A Lather

I had one of those sewing mornings, that I just couldn't figure out what to sew. I was in a funky mood and everything sounded blah. So I pulled out some oldies that are basically leader ender, until, I decide what else to do with them.
I used a bloc loc template set to make a few of the these blocks.



I sewed a few tumblers together.


I made 3 shoofly blocks.


And for added measure, I sewed two florabunda blocks.


And, then, I felt so much better.
