Attention deficit sewing

Thursday morning I didn't have to work, so I spent some time playing with fabric. I just couldn't decide what to work on first.  What a surprise, huh?  First up was my 4.25" signature block to send to Temecula Quilt Co. for their 10th anniversary project.  It's kind of fun to think that my little block will end up in a quilt in California with blocks from all over the country or world.
Second project was getting one side border #2 onto the panel quilt. Now that I see the photo, I'm thinking those 9-patch sections would benefit from an occasional black square too.  And that lighter yellow block is too light for the rest.  I may need to do some thinking on those 9-patches before making any more.  
And the final thing was cutting the pieces for 4 pillowcases for donations. I have a whole stack of fabric on a shelf that I've separated to use specifically for pillowcases. And that spot needs to be cleaned up so there is room for more.  I also found 2 Spider-Man pillowcase kits that I remember buying to make for the grandsons.

  1. You made good use of your morning. I debated about making a Anniversary cake block. It is fun to think your block will be in the anniversary commemoration quilt.

    The panel quilt is progressing nicely. If you add a small black frame around the nine-patches, you won't need to add black to them and it may make them pop a bit more, too.

    Happy sewing!
