Binge Sewing!

I have been home a little less than a week now, all by myself...hubbie will come home sometime this week...and have been doing nothing but hanging out in my sewing room.
That's right...no cooking, no cleaning and no laundry!
I do shower and get dressed each day, but usually not until late in the morning. 
Needless to say, I have gotten a few things done.
'Autumn Pinwheels'
by Primitive Gatherings
I worked 2 days at TOWQS and just could not help but buy a NEW project.
Lots of stitching to do now on the wool vines and leaves!
Thank you, Lisa, for the inspiration temptation.

Pieced the center of 'Idaho Lily' for the Kim Diehl Simple Whatnots Club.
Next, prep the applique and make the 76 half square triangles that are 1" finished.

I made two blocks for a new Mystery Sampler quilt with a spring theme.
Here is a sneak peak:

There is one downside to binge sewing...you just might have an OOPS!
I spotted some "leftover" strips sitting on the ironing board from the first little KD quilt and thought...why not make a small quilt out the them.
As I was cutting into the 6th strip, I noted that they were all nicely cut into 1 7/8" wide strips.
OOPS, they were the strips for the scrappy binding.
Oh well, I had some other scraps to replace them with and now I have this cute 12" x 12" quilt to start my one day, small quilt collage.

Hope you are having fun times in your sewing room, but without the OOPS.

These quilts are awesome! Love the PG Autumn Leaves one! I got a good chuckle from the oops! lol! It all worked out well though. Great job on the whatnots quilt... i did not have an lqs that offered it, so I am getting it shipped to me... so glad whatnots is offered through mail now! :-)

I like the applique vine border on the pinwheel quilt. An added bonus to the pinwheel design and in my kind of colors.

That is some power sewing! I love all your projects and am chuckling about your oops - glad I'm not the only one who does those things! Isn't it nice to be home alone now and then and be able to just sew!?

So many wonderful projects! I love them all! How fun to just spend time quilting and not have to worry about anything else for a few days!

The "oops" moments make us think and change direction a little. I am sure that all the great artists had oops moments that resulted in the masterpieces that we admire today. You are on the right track.

Binge sewing! Love the sound of it! Also love the result of your oops.

I love sewing that way...even with the oops! Love your projects.
