quiet.. me ?

I just realized it's been awhile since I posted that I had planned to put in some pictures of the Warm Wishes quilt I am doing.. The top picture is the finished quilt top (unquilted as of yet.) The colors are forest green, deep aubergine, burgundy and beige, which don't show up all that well in the photo. In the lower picture you can see the basic blocks that comprise the quilt. It's all in how you turn the stripped blocks around the focus fabric to create the 'frame'.
I also am working on the Debbie Mumm 2007 Block of the month quilt and have one block left to do. I used very bright fabrics in an attempt to step out of my 'comfort zone' this time.

Here's a photo of the partial layout.

Haven't felt much like sewing in the past few weeks but hopefully this week I can get back to business again. I cleaned and organized the space and will do some before and after shots in my next blog entry. Spring has finally arrived and we are having rain and chilly weather so it should in theory be good sewing weather, but at present my bones are wanting to sit and be pampered.. so I am being quite lazy!
