Switching it Up

I did manage to get one row sewn together before I got distracted again. And I do have all but four blocks partially sewn together. Well it is pretty hard to stay at it when I have seen so many versions of the quilt on the web and even a couple in the flesh (or cloth) I  should say. 
So a break was needed cleaning - shopping - the weekend - Table of Grace on Monday.  

We made Chicken Spaghetti and everyone really enjoyed it.  I used elements of the Pioneer Woman recipe and the chicken tetrazzini recipe our UMW use for our casserole sale.

We have a wonderful group of helpers.  One couple treats us to lunch from a local pizza place and another of our newer helpers brings a fabulous dessert.  Many hands makes light work and we have time to relax and enjoy each others company when our meal is in the ovens.  I was at the beach last month so it was good to catch up with friends.

Tuesday after TOG is rest and relax day. 
 I pulled out this project that had been tucked away before Thanksgiving.
To be truthful - I came across it when I was looking for something else.

I made a few more of the quarter circle segments.  I think I have enough for 12 blocks.
They will be 16 inch blocks - so that would make a 48 x 64 inch center.  

I visited a new (to me) quilt shop in Greenville with a friend last week. 

I found a blue floral that I liked in a color similar to a couple of small  pieces I had at home.
The border here is a leftover from a backing and that's all I have of it.

I have ordered another similar fabric online but my plan is to use various florals in the blue background.  
It is a scrap quilt after all.
Tomorrow is sewing  fun with C&S .

The weather has been so warm here that most of our winter has resembled early spring weather.
The lawn guy mowed this week.  And I'm the queue to get the yard cleaned up and new pine straw
