Weekend

20 comments
How was your weekend? I had high sewing hopes for my weekend after a very stressful and long week. However, my hopes weren't exactly realized. But that is okay. I've got a new week ahead, after all.
My Pam Kitty Morning came from Fat Quarter Shop so I was excited to get going on my last couple sets of blocks for my row by row quilt and I hoped to even start sashing over the weekend. But I was slightly derailed. Friday night Shelbie, Whitney and I went to my neighbor Laura's for a pie making class. It was very enlightening and helpful (also delicious). I have never made a good pie crust. Ever. I hope to change that during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. No. I didn't make this pie above, Laura did. It is a caramel banana cream.
Allison came to stay for a couple days. Of course that was a happy derail. Shelbie made Allison this super cute sweater and cap with her very talented knitting needles. The sticky candy face is courtesy left over Halloween candy. She looks pretty happy with herself.
I did manage a bit of sewing on Saturday. I cut out the 1.5" strips for my log cabin blocks in my row by row quilt. Can you just see that it doesn't matter what the block design is used, the PKM fabric is incredibly cute?
I used the strawberries for the center block. I couldn't be happier with how they are coming together. Unfortunately this is all I got done. But I love it.

I had been chasing a cold all week last week and it finally hit Friday. It really slowed me down over the weekend and hit hard on Sunday. I hope it doesn't last long. I just loving using this fabric too much to let a cold get me down.

love you choice of fabrics -- they are really cute! i have seen them being used on several other blogs. what is this row-by-row pattern that you are talking about? is it a pattern that one can buy? i have tried so hard to learn how to knit -- i just can't seem to get a hang of it. i do know how to crochet (sort of). the cap and sweater are so nicely done, and what a stunning model!

Bummer for the cold, but yay for the sewing. The log cabins look wonderful. And Allison is getting to be so grown up and beautiful! Love her knit ensemble, too.

That little Allison looks like pure joy. And so do those pkm blocks! LOVE.

oh my, your log cabin blocks are beautiful! I just finished piecing 2 pink and purple log cabin quilt tops (for 2 new baby girls that will be arriving early in 2012). I love the colors in your blocks. I don't know why I haven't made log cabin blocks before, but now it seems like that's all I want to make! You can see the pink and purple ones on my blog, smalltownquilter.blogspot.com

Allison looks so cute in her sweater & cap. Shelbie did a great job! I didn't get much sewing done last week either, spent a few days down in Branson, MO...wonderful time! Your log cabin blocks look wonderful. I'm loving that PKM fabric. Thanks for sharing.

Nedra said...

Look how big Allison is getting. I think she looks just like YOU! Does anyone tell you that in the family?
I hope you are feeling better soon.

Nanci said...

Happiness is a cute sticky kid! She is very lovely in her sweater, hand made too!
great fabric choices from you as usual.

Allison seems to be blissfully happy... there is never anything like too much candy ;-) Your row by row blocks are getting more and more cuter. Love the fussy cut Strawberries in the center. Delicious pie!
