Just a Whim




Happy Wednesday! I've been slowly but steadily working on my hexagon stocking and have all but the last row attached. And while I should probably be limiting my sewing time right now...



For some reason I decided to start a new quilt. On a whim. Last night. When I should have been cleaning or starting food preparation for the big meal tomorrow. I've been wanting to make Camille's "Vintage Holiday" quilt for a long time now, and it occurred to me last evening that I might be able to make it with my Sew Cherry scraps. So off I went, gathering fabrics and cutting blocks.



At first I was just going to make one block, you know, to see how it went. But it went fast so I decided to make three.


 
And then I decided to make four more. Okay...well everything quilt related is put away now (except for the hexies which are in a basket in the family room for whenever I get a minute to sit down)! I'll be doing everything today I probably should have done yesterday! I'm looking forward to family arriving this evening and to the big meal tomorrow.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by...Happy Thanksgiving if you are here in the U.S.! And Happy Wednesday to everyone!

I like how your vintage holiday quilt is coming along. I have only 2 blocks made of it, so mine may just turn into a table runner:) Good luck with your quilt. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Love them all and I know how that goes. It's like my kids used to say "one more Minute Mom". Enjoy your holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I know how it is when you just need to start a new project. The blocks are really cute. Of course, I'm still loving your hexies!

Sherri, I don't blame you for starting those adorable blocks, and the fabric is perfect. My new sewing room is calling to me (Really Loud) because I just finished setting it up yesterday. I worked on one BOM block last night, just to see if it was as comfortable sewing in there as I thought it would be, well, it was even better than I expected. Ah well, my pies and rolls are also calling to me and they must have priority, no way I can do them all tomorrow AND get the turkey in the oven in time. Soooo...Have a most blessed Thanksgiving with your family and loved ones. Thank you for your delightful blog. I don't comment often, but today, I just had to. Big Hugs...

I love your Vintage Holiday blocks. I *just bought this pattern-- it came in the mail early this week, and I think I may have to spend Friday with this pattern and a bunch of leftover Flurry fabric I recently found. :)
Thanks for sharing your Cherry version~
