Cutting Table

I've been a little slack with my blogging lately.  Can't say what I've been doing to take up the time though, I don't feel like I've done anything much for several days.  Clearly this isn't true though because I've managed to do all this cutting:

That is the puppy and dino quilts, as well as another baby quilt I dreamt up, plus two civil war blocks at the front.

This seems to be a bit of a pattern of mine at the moment, cut up several jobs as once, and then production-line them at the sewing machine.  I'll do as much sewing as I can with each piece before it has to go to the ironing board, do my ironing and then back to the sewing machine.

I've also been doing a lot of hand work, enjoying sitting in my big chair watching The Boo play on the playmat.  I've almost finished the current Retro Nine Patch, and just in time too since Lyn has announced that she'll be releasing this month's block early! 
And here is a sneak peak of a friend's birthday present I've been working on.  You'll have to wait a little while to see the whole thing though, I can't risk her seeing it!
Since taking the above photo off all my cutting out, I have finished the civil war blocks, bringing me back up to date, but I'll save that for another post.


  1. I've just noticed your latest Brackman BOW's on flickr!! Your quilt is going to have a very contemporary look! I like that someone has thought outside the square! There is another lady doing them in Japanese fabrics! They will all look just fabulous!!!

  2. I can't wait to see your friend's birthday present! Very intriguing!

  3. That's a lot of cutting! Good for you on doing it all at once, I think that's the easiest way. I get in a cutting mood, or a sewing mood, and it helps to get it out of my system, lol. Your sneak peek looks lovely!
