Weekend projects

I managed to keep myself pretty busy this last weekend working on a few different projects...

quilted coasters
On Saturday morning, my husband declared that I needed to make some new coasters for game night that night. So I did! These are the same design I made for gifts over the holidays, but I thought I'd share a picture since I never manged to get any close-up ones of the others. The pattern is from the wonderful book, Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts, by Joelle Hoverson.

On Sunday, I completed work on the new Project Linus top I started last week at the PL workshop I attended. It's another one made from the Roll o' Evelyn challenge fabric (which I have a ton more of, so there will be still more projects to come!). I have ideas on how I want to quilt it so I'm even excited about getting it basted (but first, I need a back).

Paintbox Quilt Along fabrics all cut and ready to sew
Another item checked off the list: cutting all of my Paintbox Quilt Along fabrics. Now I'm ready to stitch up some blocks!

And then I finally started quilting the Maisy quilt for my son. Woo hoo! Hopefully, I'll be able to get the quilting done in the next couple days. I'd really like to have this ready to give to him on his birthday next week.

Phew! Listing it all out like this makes me feel like I accomplished a lot. Yay for productive weekends!


  1. You have done a lot, I love the coaster fabrics and seeing how much you can achieve in a weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing how the paintbox quilt looks.

  2. Whew! You have been busy. I like how you quilted the coasters. That Project Linus quilt is so sweet looking.

  3. You sure did have a productive weekend! Love the coasters. Excellent fabric. Project Linus is bright and happy and the Paintbox quilt looks like it is going to be a nice one. I wish I was half as productive!

  4. WHOO HOO! I managed to get two blocks sewed on Sunday, but Cooper's gotten sick, so I just keep walking by the sewing room hoping to get back in there. The blocks go together very quickly though, so I'm sure I can get eight more done this week. It seemed strange to be sewing again . . . felt a bit "like a virgin" :-) Can't wait to see the finished Maisy quilt!!

  5. You have been very busy! The coasters look great, you used the perfect fabric.

  6. Look at you go! I love how the PL quilt is turning out. I think that just might be the perfect use for that fabric. Can't wait to see how you quilt it!

  7. Wow! I'm so impressed with your productivity.
    It must be the "nesting" thing or is it too early for that?

  8. i absolutely adore the maisy fabric, can't wait to see it complete! :)
