Starts and a sort of Finish

This week, I got nothing completed. Unless you count getting mostly caught up on my home office stuff!  You know, filing, shredding, reorganizing for the new year!

I did work on 30 Blocks in 30 Days at Carla's blog, Creatin' in the Sticks. I mostly did one block each day according to her tutorials, but I did not read that she was presenting them in column order for layout. I just did my own thing for a week using the RSC 18 colors as my choices. Then I "woke up" and decided maybe I should have a plan. I liked the Rainbow layout, so I printed her EQ photo and put the blocks on my design wall to sort of replicate her color layout.

The blocks have now been taken down and placed in a project box. I have my CiL blocks to do for this time, my OMG for May to get done, the RSC18 = Pink slab blocks to do. So these will have to wait. I have no real plan for them, but they were so fun to work at every day!. When I put them into a flimsy top with borders, I'll post again.

I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts, Finish It Up Friday 
and Busy Hands Quilts, Finish or Not Friday.

Stay Busy and Stay Happy


  1. Getting caught up on home office stuff is a huge accomplishment! That's a chore I continue to put off, while knowing that if I just got it done I would enjoy my quilting time so much more!!!

  2. Great job catching up with business! Now, you've been doing quite a bit of sewing, too, with all those blocks from the QAL. I love the rainbow look!

  3. Well done on organizing! That is quite an achievement :) Love all your blocks up there together..xx

  4. Hi Judy,
    I really enjoyed the 30 blocks hop, and yours look so nice on your design wall. I had to giggle at 'get on the stick'. That sounds familiar to me as well - something mom would have said, or maybe dad. I see your plus sign inspiration - that one was one of my initial inspirations as well. Then Sandra's pushed me over the edge - too many times seeing it made the temptation too hard to resist.

  5. It’s difficult sometimes to keep up with all the housework and still find time to quilt, too, but we take it any way we can get it, right? I LOVE the 30 blocks project you are working on! That is going to be one beautiful quilt!!!
