I have been trying to fit some sewing time in between feedings with Zerah. Early in the morning seems to be the best time to sew. Between 5 and 7 in the morning, right after she eats, she will lay down for a little while and nap. I am trying to catch up on my blocks for my quilting bees that I got behind on, and I am almost caught up.
Sonja. She is making a beach quilt and asked for blocks inspired by a beach house. She set up a wonderful inspiration gallery on flickr for all of us to be inspired by which was a great idea. I found many quilts that I want to make in the future as a result!
The block above is a glass of lemonade or some other frothy beachy beverage. I did some searching online and found this site which has free paper piecing patterns. I changed the lemonade a little and added the borders.
I couldn't resist making a bikini! The floral hawaiian print she sent just screamed bathing suit to me. I then added a couple borders to make it bigger and add some wonkiness to the mix.
I hope everyone is doing well out there! I am going to try to be on here more in the next couple of weeks, but we will see... it only took me 3 1/2 hours to write this one post. Zerah needed to eat, which took two hours today (I think she is going through a growth spurt:)), diaper change x3, and some smiling time. Have a good weekend!
