We took a quick trip to the US this morning and I picked these up. Don't you love those little houses. I couldn't resist the pink flannel snowmen, too!
Oh yeah, I also got these...
in case I get hungry while I'm doing all this sewing!

I finally managed to get some sewing done including these cute little blocks! These were made with the leftover scraps from the two quilts I made with my Hoo's in the Forest FQ bundle. I've actually made 20 of these blocks and I'm in the process of sewing them together, but in my effort to blog at least once a week I thought I'd show some of them to you. I'm planning on backing this quilt with minkee. I haven't done any FMQ with minkee so this is going to be a bit of an experiment (hopefully succesful). Any tips on quilting with minkee would be appreciated!

I have so many projects and quilts in my head right now. I'm trying to be disciplined and finish one thing before I move on to the next, but it's HARD!! We're in the midst of a heatwave right now which is supposed to end mid-week. I'm hoping the cooler weather will increase my productivity. Time at the machine these past few weeks has been extremely spotty! It seems I go through periods when I finish at least one quilt a week, and other times when I spend more time organizing my fabric and staring at it!

This is the second quilt (so far) I've made with this fabric - I love this one, too! I think I have enough left to squeak one more out - fingers crossed! This one is headed to the shop.

I've hardly touched my sewing machine in the last few weeks. There's something about this time of the year - I just can't seem to get motivated. I have so many things I want to get started on and so many ideas. I pull fabric out and look at it and end up putting it away. I think what I need is a little inspiration!
