Crumb Quilt and other updates

I took out the good ole Crumb Quilt again tonight to do some more free motion quilting. I was amazed how quick I got around the triangles tonight. I managed to get 3 sides quilted.

Tomorrow before I start my green scrappy quilt blocks for Scrap Saturday, I will finish the final side of triangles. All that is left to do is two large borders and bind it. Yipppeee!!! I can't wait to finish this quilt and put it on my bed!!! I have been working on this quilt on and off for the last 2 1/2 years now. The end is getting close!

Last night I finished quilting up the remaining Christmas place mats. The excess batting and backing are cut off and they are now ready for binding. I think I will work on that little project during our Wednesday night sewing group.

After taking a few days break on my green scraps, I will get started sewing the pieces to make the blocks. From what I am reading from the pattern, I have to make 48 blocks!!! Let the fun times begin!!!! Actually I'm looking forward to getting back to my green scraps again.

I have been quiet here in blogland the last few days, but I have been keeping myself busy with my sewing!!!! I plan to post again tomorrow evening to give you the updates of my Scrap Saturday.

Oooh BTW, for those of you who are involved in the Friday Night Sew In, or those of you interested in getting involved, the sign up is now available here.

I thought I would show you how William spends his time while Mommy is working in the kitchen.

He can turn my kitchen upside down in 2 seconds!!! Ahhh but that's okay. If it keeps him happy then that's the best thing of all!!! I've also realized we could save a heck of alot of money! So we won't be buying any more toys for Will!!! He prefers plastic containers and bowls and wire cooling racks instead!!! LOL

Quiltingly Yours

oh Will is so typical. I have great memories of the kids in the kitchen cupboards, bowls on their heads, wooden spoons in hand making a bit noise, but with big smiles on their faces. your crumb quilt is looking great.

You have a nice and inspirational blog!
Gosh, it is good that many of those pots and pans are tupperware and are empty when your boy is 'working' with you in the kitchen.

Love the beginnings of your quilt, but especially the picture of your little guy. He is adorable.

Adorable photo! My son was the same way...banging pots was his favorite thing!

Saucepans and wooden spoons were another of my boys favourites

How cute! When my children were little I had a cupboard of rubbermaid and tupperware containers that they knew they could always get in and play with.

Like those green pieces.
It is great that William can go exploring in safe cabinets. I had a place like that too.
