Good to see you again, Kelley and Kelley's puppy.  I like your purple quilt!  I posted a question in the gallery about your free blocks.

Quilt looks great Kelley. That's for the prompt to check there as I often forget about the gallery.

Love that name "Scrap Pot Pie"   We call ourselves the 'Alien Quilters'  because we all have several (and I use that term lightly) UFOs.

Anne, Your quilt is very pretty, Kelley, yours is lovely too.

I haven't quilted or machine pieced since I got back home.  I started appliqueing by hand on a table topper.  I didn't get very far though.  Hoping to get my energy back so I can continue with my sewing, I miss it lots.

Yes, I did work on a quilt today not as much as I would have liked but I did finish the long pieced sashing for the sides of the blocks. Now only to put the sashing on the bottom and top of the blocks.

Did some preliminary work on two quilts yesterday.  Made a sample block for a tumbling triangles block that had to be enlarged from 12.5" to 18.5" .  The finished quilt will be queensize and I wanted to make as few blocks as possible to get it to work.  Will need 16 blocks plus sashing with the larger size, so that's doable.  The other quilt is a baby quilt with various sized patches making up the background blocks for appliqued stars that have the birth information on them.  The patches will be scrappy in earth tones of sage, brown, tan and blue.  The alternate blocks will be one of the blue fabrics.  Now all I need is for my shipment of fabric to arrive from Hancock's of Paducah.

These both sound very pretty.  I love the earth tones.

I couldn't wait to start making a quilt for the Civil War fabric swap! I chose  the Fort Sumter block found over at Barbara Brackman's blog (http://civilwarquilts.blogspot.com/2011/04/15-fort-sumter.html) . I thought it would be a great block to showcase all the yummy fabrics in the swap. The center block will be from the swap fabric and all the other pieces will be from my stash. Since there's a lot of piecing I could do without having the swap fabrics yet, I went ahead and made the corner pieces. The "A" fabric is a teal blue with the "B" units a cream on white. When the blocks are put together there'll be a "chain" effect behind the central center units.  The "C" and "D" units will be scrappy, left over from the center units.  I hope it turns out as well as I envision it will be.

Yep, I cut fabric and did a few piecing. It is really thundering and lightning here today. I have to work at 9pm for about an hour but then I am off for the rest of the night. However, I do work during weekends from 10a-12p, 5-8p, and 830-1030pm,
