Sewing Orphan Blocks...

In an attempt to help my guild out, I decided to take home some "orphan blocks" that were brought to my quilt guilds meeting last Wednesday.  Trying to challenage myself to get outside of my comfort zone , and do more for my guild.  These are the blocks on the design floor at the meeting.

Elfrieda and I put these together on this design floor.
Loved the pink & purple, sampler in my future.  Now I'm not so sure. That center medallion is so "stretchy", and I am trying to get added on sashing's to relieve some of that.  All the while crossing my fingers that it will work.  Who ever ends up quilting this does not want all that "ripple" to try to quilt.  

Deciding that the 12 1/2 inch blocks could go as corner squares, (thank you Cappy) I came home and put these on my design wall.

Before any sewing
So, some sewing has been done, and hopefully I can get it together.  I have some orphan blocks of my own that I think might help out too.  So let the sewing help me to make a beautiful quilt top for October Quilt Bingo.

Hope to have some progress pictures later this week.  In the mean time, Happy Piecing.

Getting a thing or two finished.

Not a whole lot, but small, and easy are sometime enough...

Quilt as you go Potholder 
I signed up for a Craftsy class, (Quilt as you go) and will now try something I have never tried, but wanted to try.  Could this be a Guild Challenge? (Not a Potholder)!  Maybe something a "Little more challenging"!  LOL!

Love my Manimal
This Faux Fur, blanket was the June Special called "Love your Manimal" by My Lazy Daisy.  So Easy kit, front and back sewn together leaving an 8inch open, turn rightside out, sew opening closed, edge stitch around whole blanket, FINISHED!  EASY = ENOUGH!

Daisy is just about ready
Oreganata Ruffled Tea Towel complete kit #50013-C $19.95 is around Daisy's neck, and Oreganata Mini Apron #50021-C $32.95 around her waist.  Daisy and I will be at "Summer Sunday Funday" at Fish Head Cantina 4802 Benson Ave., Arbutus, MD 21227 from 2PM - 6PM tomorrow June, 23...Hope to see you all too!

I'm getting things done today

Today I finally made it down to my sewing room.  The intention was to finish the "Baby Girl" quilt, and find the pattern for a table topper that I have made a couple times in the past.  Where oh where has my little pattern gone, oh, where oh where can it be?  So while the embroidery machine was quilting away, I was looking, looking for the pattern. It's now after 6PM, and said pattern is still missing.

Quilting in the Hoop (I love your Brother Embroiderey)
So while I was searching for that pattern, I found some orphan blocks.  I'm not even sure when these were made.  Now I  have to find the magazine I found this pattern in... 

Orphan Blocks unearthed...
So back to the old sewing machine, and a little mindless sewing while the quilt is being quilted.  Dinner, lovingly perpared by my man while sewing and searching for patterns.  I complete 6 strip peiced blocks, and quilting on the "Baby Mallory" quilt.  

Found Orphan Blocks, and 6 strip blocks on the left.

So now dinner is complete, watching National's in the top of the 11th.  Minnesota just got a run 4-3 with 2 outs.  LETS GO NAT'S!!!

Happy piecing as much as you can, (Now that Summertime is here).
