Snow in Eugene Oregon is not a good thing. It has been almost a week since the snow storm, and we still have school closures and bad roads. What about snow plows you ask? I heard there are one or two running around the city but I sure haven't seen any signs of them. It's pretty crazy!
The good news is I have just chosen to stay home and keep warm.
Lots of time spent in the sewing room!
I quilted up my Churn Dash quilt. I used Amy Smart's Easy Churn Dash pattern for sewing up the blocks. My finished quilt measures 50" x 60" and I added some smaller scale blocks for some additional interest. I decided to quilt a simple meandering feather in a cream colored thread so the quilting really doesn't show.
As my goal was to make this quilt entirely from my stash, I ended up piecing in some prints on the back.
You would have thought this quilt made a dent in my 30's fabric but I still have quite a pile of them left.
Not wanting to put them back in my stash, I decided to cut a bunch of strips and make up these fun log cabin blocks. I need to find some background fabrics so I can finish up the top.
I think there are 30 12.5" blocks all finished up.
The biggest project I have been working on has been the kitchen remodel. I am happy to say all the construction is finally finished. (WooHoo!!)
Now I just need to sew up some curtains, paint some furniture, finish up some wall art, make potholders and recover some chairs. (sigh)
Hopefully Santa brings me some new dishes because all of my old ones went to Goodwill and I am almost out of paper plates!
If you are wondering, the cabinets came from Ikea (purchased sight unseen) and I am really happy with them. They worked great for my 1940's home where nothing is level.
Hope all of you are staying warm and getting all those handmade gifts finished up. I finished up my last one this morning and will be sharing pictures after Christmas.
