This weekend my husband and I started cutting up some of his old shirts. The plan is to use the fabric for a quilt using Bonnie Hunter's design Bricks and Stepping-Stones. I think this design will be great with the fabric we have. He really needs a warm quilt in this cold weather. I am now cutting the 'bricks' for this quilt, and I hope I will be finished cutting tomorrow.
Last week spring seemed to be coming, but during the weekend it started snowing again. I am definitely ready for spring, lets hope it comes soon! In the mean time I will be indoors cutting and sewing bricks and stepping-stones.
Here is a picture of how the quilt could look like (borrowed from Bonnie's website):

Spring seems to have come early this year, rain and relatively warm temperatures are dominating.Where I am living, though, we have had so much snow that it will take quite some time before spring flowers will emerge. But, we are heading towards summer!

Crazy Old Ladies Quilts and figured out I had to enter. I decided I had to create a block of my own, and I have named it 'Sunset Squares'.The block measures 12.5" square, finished size 12". Now I'll have to figure out where to use this block.

Today I can show my secret quilt, since the receiver will not see it until tomorrow, on Valentine's day! I found the design in !Sew We Quilt! , and I made my version of it during the weekend. It was a fine little project, and fun to make as an in-between quilt.

I have just started organizing my leftovers/stash, cutting them into strips and sorting them into ziploc-bags. Then the strips will be ready for future projects. It just takes time cutting, when I rather would be more creative. But, one has to do some groundwork before the house can be built! Back to work...

I have been taking a break after finishing two quilts in two weeks. Plans for new quilts are made, the BOM 'Stitched by me' by Lynette Anderson is purchased, and I went to my first local quilt guild meeting last night. There are so many nice projects to be made!
