Put your foot down #122

Put your foot down is a weekly linky party to share your fiber arts WIP’s and finishes, and hopefully make new friends along the way. Welcome, I invite you to stop in every Thursday and share your projects.

To answer the above question, not much. Tuesday night I rushed to finish clue #4 for the Flower Patch Mystery SAL. Oh I do not like rushing and I do not like being under that kind of pressure. But all is good and..,

The reason for my last minute block.

New fabric storage. Everything that could be carried or rolled out of my sewing room was. What couldn’t was shuffled around. I’m still uncertain about the layout I have now, only time will tell. Once it’s no longer a mess I will share photos.

Look at these awesome tropical birds by DONNALEEQ.

Not sure that they are officially tropical, we just don’t see many colorful birds like this in the mid-west.

…and how about those flying geese, I mean Highland Cow from Stories from the Sewing Room. You can also see blocks 2 and 3 from the Flower Patch SAL in her post.

November is a blog hop month with Island Batik. You know what that means right? Lots of giveaways, new projects with spring 2021 fabric that will begin shipping to quilt shops in December. Tip: I did notice a few of the new collections on the MSQ website the other day.

Watch for the hop schedule in the next couple of days as it begins on Monday. I’m so excited!

The collection I received is Celestials designed by Kathy Engle. Here is a sneak peak.

  1. You were rushing block four as I was rushing block three! Yours looks a lot better than mine. Can’t wait to see the full sewing room reveal. Thanks for sharing my cow quilt.

  2. I’m excited to know about the Storm at Sea blog hop! I’ve had a pattern and the fabric to make one for several years, but haven’t gotten up the courage to make it. Is there a chance it will be paper pieced? (Fingers crossed!)

    1. Awe, sorry no. I have the SAS die from AccuQuilt though I have made one paper pieced. Honestly, if you can swing the price of the die it makes it all go much faster than paper piecing. Seriously!
