Busy Work Blocks

Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts recently shared a Pocket Patchwork/Busy Work pattern on her blog.  It was a six part sew along that will finish at only 15".  I had one block cut and set aside with every intention to participate, then had quilts coming in and other distractions such as my Schnibbles Summers Day aka Autumn Day from my previous post.

Recently Pam shared the finished quilt and proposed a giveaway of a fat eighth bundle of her newest line of fabric Heart of the Prairie.  If your up to the challenge of making your own Busy Work mini quilt check out details at her blog.  The deadline isn't until July 7th and all you need is a photo of your quilt top sent to her by that date.  SO....I found the bits from my first block and stitched a few more.  These are 6.5" unfinished.

May is a very busy month here in the hollow.  We have four graduations to attend (one was this past weekend, one this evening, one this coming Sat and one next Thurs).  Then I have in-laws who are coming for a visit in two short weeks.

In between quilting I've been piecing my Schnibbles Doc and will get to share that soon!  Other than that....busy times family wise.

These are gorgeous blocks, Mary. I love those fabrics.

I've seen this on her blog, but am so swamped right now, I hesitate to get started. But her new fabric line is so pretty. I can't wait for it to come out.

Have a fun-filled day. You sound very busy.

Beautiful blocks! I picked the fabrics for this project awhile ago, but haven't gotten to it yet. Now I have "my time" back to me and am ready to go any time soon! Thanks for the inspirations :)

So in June, you're planning nothing right! Just sitting on the front porch drinking iced tea and browsing the quilt mags. I love Pam's new fabric too:)

Your blocks are beautiful and inspiring! I 'need' more civil war fabrics :-) Can't wait to see the quilts made from these. I signed up to follow Pam's blog...surprised I haven't seen it before. Thanks for sharing the link.
And Congrats to all those happy graduates! Keep your strength up for all that yahooing :-)

Love your little blocks, Mary. I've been eyeing Pam's blog and contemplating whether to start it or not. Yours are certainly an incentive to get going!

Sheila said...

Adore the fabrics you picked. I'm trying to make myself do part 6, but I seem to be sewn out.

Lesley said...

Wow! You are one busy lady with all those graduations! Love your patchwork pocket...I'm ready to work on the border. It was a wonderful project to do!

Jo said...

Thanks for the links Mary...I went over and checked them out. I would love to SQUEEZE this little gem of a quilt in but...oh for more time.

I love your little blocks, Mary. So tempting to join, but I am staying strong (mostly because I have been so weak lately that I am overcommitted once again).
