I hope you enjoyed Mother's Day!

A Kiss in Time, so far

This is the Kiss in Time quilt, so far. Next I need to cut fabrics and make the borders. I am really enjoying how this one is coming together.

It was a busy weekend, so little time to sew. I considered fabric for my new quilt alongs and I cut some of it up.

One inch strips of the Bella Solid fat quarter pack

These are one inch strips cut off my Bella Parade fat quarter set. I cut three strips of each colour for now. I decided that I am going to play with the quilt along ideas a bit and make a cousin or sister to the actual quilt (you can see that lovely quilt over on the sidebar). I am, for now, just going to make a whole lot of  slightly wonky and slightly improv log cabin blocks with these strips and then see how I am inspired to put them together.

Tiny log cabin blocks for the FQS Bella Solid QAL

If you look at the ruler on my sewing table (the bottom line is inches, top centimetres) you can see how little these are. Maybe I will make some of them larger, I'm not sure yet.

I have also been quilting, quilting my quilt as you go blocks. Some work projects are going to slow all quilting down for a while, good thing quilting is a journey, not a race.

Love the Kiss in Time. Those blocks are so tiny and look fabulous. I agree totally with your sentence, quilting is a journey not a race. I do not like racing on my quilts, I always make mistakes if I rush, and it takes all the fun out of it.
