Another Fine Mess....

I almost began by saying that there wasn't much happening on Moose Bay--the truth is that there is way too much happening and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed!
Earlier this month, Craftsy had a brief opportunity to purchase an all access pass for the month of October. The pass allows me to download and watch as many classes as I want, but they will not be accessible after the 31st unless I buy them. Needless to say, I have been doing some binge watching. And a little sewing. These strip sets are for Edyta Sitar's Scrappy Quilting class--I only need to make 16 more of them--yeesh...
Friday I picked up this cute book "Little Gatherings"--chock full of adorable small quilts by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings. 

It's a small book and nicely bound to lay flat--love that!
It sounds like Colorz Quilt Shop is going to use this book for a club next year--should be lots of fun.

I am still plugging away on my Stars in the Garden--these are the last hexagons to be basted and sewn together, so I am very close to assembling everything to complete the little quilt.
I'll be working on these during the mysterious Indian Summers on PBS tonight-after the wartime drama Home Fires.

  1. Oh, I love your Stars in the Garden. What a fantastic design! I've been watching as many Craftsy videos as I can, too. Just started the Edyta video. Isn't she fun? She was the guest speaker/teacher at the first guild meeting I attended nearly 4 years ago. Wonderful teacher.

  7. I wouldn't say it sounds like slow sewing. It looks like you've got it in high gear.

  9. I have one of Edyta's books and have bookmarked a couple of quilts for a possible future project. She does a lot with strip sets and makes fabulous quilts. Now I'm wondering what you will be making!

    Those little hexies are the cutest.

  10. I got the same Craftsy deal - and have also been binge watching classes. Besides the quilt classes, I've been doing knitting (brioche stitch!) and cooking (Macarons! Beurre Blanc! Chile Rellenos!) Isn't learning fun?
    And Edyta is a treasure!

  11. Curious to see what you will be creating with those strip sets.
    I want to get my hands on that Little Gatherings book. Almost ordered it, then thought I'd check a shop in the neighboring valley first, and I have failed to follow through.
    That is a beautiful hexie star you are creating--and I am so jealous that you are almost ready to assemble the parts for your little quilt! : )

  14. Oh, yummy is the word, you've got so many on the go now, it might be several days before you look up from your work and post more. Happy quilting Karen, I'm finding you on Pinterest!
