A little Under the Weather

Although I have been a little under the weather, I have managed a little bit of sewing. I told my hubby that he can tell I'm not feeling well when I don't have the energy to quilt!
So what have I accomplished?
I got my Milky Way QAL quilt sandwiched and the quilting started! Since there is quite a bit of negative space, I am
quilting a bit more densely than I usually do. 

I also finished 2 more sections of my Regatta quilt. 
It is hanging vertically on my design wall to save space but it will be horizontal with the dark blue section on the top.
I'm excited to see how the rest of my colors look. I'm following along over at Home Sewn By Us

I also made a few more blocks for my Temperature quilt. 
Each row will have 18 blocks across the quilt. The 1st row is complete but you can see how different the temperatures were for the 2nd row 
(these are Jan 19-24 temps.)
I'm quilting along with NeedledMom

My knitting & crochet club spent January making red baby hats for the "Little Hats/Big Hearts" project. We donated 60 hats for heart health awareness to a local hospital. 

I'm linking up to To Do Tuesday over at Stitch All The Things, FreeMotion by the River for Linky Tuesday, and Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework.


  1. I remember your temperature quilt. Such a clever idea that will look great when done. So fun.
    Take care and get well soon. You must be terribly ill if you can't quilt.

  2. That's a lot of hats!!! Love the colors of your Regatta quilt. The Milky Way QAL is just beautiful!

  3. Hi Dawn,
    I missed your update - I hope you are feeling much better by now! You are doing great on the Regatta. I think you are a row or two ahead of me . . . not that there is any pressure or anything. ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. I love all of your projects! That Milkyway quilt top is so pretty! Love how the Regatta quilt top is coming along. And so many hats; That's awesome! Thank you for linking up with To-Do Tuesday!


Sweet sentiments
