Not a lot of sewing going on here lately

I have finished the painting on my garage and it looks so much better. It has left me with not much to show project wise, though. I have been slowly working on a scrappy mystery quilt (very slowly), but can't post that yet, so I haven't been posting much. I'm getting back in the swing now, hopefully!

I have two 24" metal quilt blocks. One I won in the Red and White Challenge on QuiltShopGal's blog (it's red!), and the other my friend, Pat, gave me. One will go on the peak on the front, which faces the front. The other will go on the side that faces the house. I put the one that Pat gave me on an existing nail on the side that faces the house  to see if I like it there. I can see this one when I'm in my sewing/TV/computer room, so I think I'd like the one from Pat here to remind me of her kindness. I think it is positioned pretty well between the windows, what do you think? Up? Down? Perfect? I will post pictures of the other one when I get it hung.

Some pictures from monthly classes. They are going well, and always lots of fun!

You might remember the start to Elsie's Log Cabin Star...she finshed it a few weeks ago and took it to the local shop for their show and tell. I can't wait to see it in person!

I'm trying to get caught up on sewing and other quilty stuff now, so I plan to get back to a better blogging routine! Thanks for sticking with me!

Your blocks are beautiful, as your metal barn block too! What a great view from your sewing room.

Your metal barn block is in the place I would have put it. Looks good. My house is stone so I can't hang one.

Pat's barn quilt looks great. Perfect the way you have it. You'll be sewing up a storm soon. Colder weather is coming son and you won't be able to go outside.

How lucky are you to have received two metal quilt blocks--looks great and it's so nice that you can see it while you are sewing!
