Final project for the winter season

I finished a project for April while wintering and now, time to pack up all my sewing stuff and get it all ready for the heat of the summer.

I also made three bags for baked potatoes in the microwave... another UFO off my list!

Now, to get organized when I get to our summer home!

April in Arizona - hot, very, very hot!

We have had record breaking temperatures here in Arizona so I have been hiding somewhat in my sewing space though that is warm when I have to do a lot of pressing.

Last week, I got busy working on a row quilt, featuring blocks that are typical of the Pacific Northwest.  So far, this is what I have accomplished though am losing interest since paper piecing is NOT my favourite technique.

Today I was motivated to play with the 1600 inches quilt and made a quilt top which will be my Quilt of Valour project that I will demonstrate to those in the Fraser Valley who want to make and donate to this worthy cause.

Too warm in my sewing room for now but feel good that I got to play with this technique.  A quick and easy quilt though I would rename it the 3 bobbin quilt.  Took lots of thread but was made, from start to finish in 2½ hours.
