My Sewing Machine has been humming

This is what I have been up to for the last few days. I have been keeping my nose to the grindstone. I started this quilt to far back that I cant even remember. It was for one of my daughters for graduation from college, I think. My memory is a little fuzzy. But any way I found a block called Oklahoma twister and I designed a queen size quilt using 20 inch blocks. Well I have the blocks together but need to iron and square up and that is where I have lost steam. I started cleaning my sewing room again, not a good sign. That usually means I am procrastinating but it does make for a clean room. Barb is giving me a hard time as I type about not getting the ironing done. That entails standing and by this time of day my feet are killing me, well not really but they do hurt. I guess I could iron sitting down but my ironing board is on the back of my door because I dont have room to put a big one up. So there, I have an excuse, all be it not a good one. I am going to go iron now. Maybe by the weekend I will have the whole top put together. That would be one more project closer to completion. Cant wait.


  1. Good more almost done....and just love it, what kind of border are you going to use?

  2. WOW!! LOVE that block!! I don't (and won't) use whites...afraid the threads will be an issue. Tell that Barb lady to be nice or we'll hijack her next mailing that contains candy. That should get her attention!

  3. Mom said she thought that quilt was for Christine and the pineapple one is for Jennifer. The square is pretty

  4. Hi! I like the blocks!
    Why don't you move your iron and ironing board in front of the TV, iron while your favorite show or movie is on?
    Would help to take away the dullness of ironing, and the length of time to get it done.
    I've ironed a block at the beginning and end of something else I was ironing, that helps to take the drudgery away too!
    Take care, Leslie

  5. That is a great pattern. Yep...I would say that cleaning is procrastination. Now fabric shopping would have been another excuse.

  6. That block is amazing. It is going to be quite pretty!
