Playing Catch-Up

I have been spending a lot of time in the sewing room the last few days.  From trying to organize my sewing room and making fabric bins, to catching up on blocks and starting a few new projects, I have been busy.  Below are a few things I have been working on.

This is a little doggie quilt I made for a friend's new puppy.  It was so easy and I love the way it turned out.  I used 1 yard each of 3 different fabrics and I Free Motion Quilted it!  It was so much fun and only took a few  hours from start to finish.

I finished up my Valentine Mini Quilt and got it put up.  (and only 4 days into the month.....)

These are pictures of a Caddy I made.  It has loops for holding things I use at my macine often, a large weighted bean bag (aquarium rock bag) pincushion and a removable thread catcher for easy emptying.  I love it and wish I had made it long ago.

This is the 1st block from the Block-A-Palooza.  I am so happy with the fabric I chose for this project and can't wait to see how the other blocks turn out.  I am using Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane.  I love this line of fabric.

And here are the fabric bins I have been working on.  I covered some dollar store collapsable bins with white muslin and a colorful fabric strip to represent what color is in the bin.  There are several more, but I couldn't get them all in the photo.  These are on a shelf above my sewing table.  Once I get organized, I will post photos of my sewing room.  Right now it is in a terrible state of chaos. 

Happy Quilting ;)
