A Sewing Day

Handful of Scraps, Postage Stamp Quilt, Retro Air Ship Propeller’s

A lot got done yesterday.  It was a nice day again but I felt like sewing and making bread.  I started to work on the Propeller border but soon moved on to the bread and the pieces are still on the table where I left them – maybe cutting more today.  Here is where I left the look yesterday – I will make one more propeller block for the corners – seeing as I had three extra I thought I would use them in the border.  I didn’t feel like moving things out of the way so this is just roughly laid out on the floor to get an idea of what I was doing.


I finished the 2nd from the bottom row on this side of the row on Monday night and will continue to work little by little getting the Postage Stamp quilt done.


From the hoop over needs to be done on this row – getting closer to the end.  Linking up to Sew Fresh Quilts , Jo’s Country Junction and Quilt Fabrication today and My Quilt Infatuation.


Lower left section ready to attach to the body of Handful of Scraps – I have been working on this area for several days – didn’t happen over night.


The bread – recipe tomorrow if anyone is interested?  Honey Oatmeal Almond Bread. (not chopped nuts but almond flour for part of it)


(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    I’d love that recipe – do you grind the almonds into flour?
    I really like the “piano keys” border using neutrals and the corner blocks for your propeller quilt.

    Wow! You sure do have some gorgeous projects in the works! No, that EPP progress didn’t happen overnight, I’m sure!! I’m always in awe of big EPP projects, since I only tackle small ones 🙂 Beautiful!

    What a great border for your propeller quilt. Great progress on all your projects. I’m a lot more productive these days because of you. I just need to apply this same logic to my quilting of quilts too.

    Eye candy galore. Yay!

    I am interested in the bread recipe. I have been trying to use more or almond flour as it is low carb. I am hypo glycemic.

    I love a colorful quilt, and this is a real stunner, especially with the applique work. The hexies are gorgeous, too. One of these days, I’ll tackle my fear and give them a try…

    Love that latest border for Retro Air Ship Propeller, Karen! Adding the extra blocks at the corners really ties the border to the center of the quilt …. You always add great features to your quilts!
    Handful of Scraps is progressing and looking great…
    And you know I love seeing the Postage Stamp quilt any chance I get!
    Thanks for sharing the bread recipe….I am going to try it soon…

    Your propeller quilt looks fabulous. I’ve always wanted to make one but wonder about those curves. And I love, love, love your applique border on your postage stamp quilt. It is fabulous!

    My goodness, you were a busy bee today weren’t you? I couldn’t stop looking at all three of your quilts, they’re just so beautiful and really coming along. Love that neutral border with the extra Propellers in the corners. I love all the bright colors of all three, great work Karen, you are truly a inspiration to me.
