Polka-Dotted Goals this week!


Click here to find my GYB/Give-Away post.

Well, that pile of scraps is all gone and now these made-fabric fat quarters 
have been turned into..

  ...some pinwheels! Don't they look fun coordinated with the polka-dots! What I love just as much is all this fabric was from my stash!! I now have a dozen pinwheels all ready for some after school sewing this week. My first goal for the week is to get these sewn into a flimsy by Friday. (Oh I think I'm starting to feel better!!)

My other goal is to get this bundle of dots below cut into 70-2 1/2" x 20" strips for a class I'm taking on the 18th called Metro Rings. (And since we are off to see our kids and grandson next weekend, I need to get them cut and ready.) I've never done curved piecing so am really looking forward to this class. Plus, I'm going with a friend, so that always makes it fun!
I want to close by saying THANK YOU to everyone for your well wishes and support while I went through and continue to recover from my Gallbladder Surgery. (Gotta' love this virtual quilting guild blogging has created for us!!) I'm back to work today, but WILL be taking it slow. I tell ya, it sure feels good to be eating again and getting back into routine though. Phew!

I am loving your scrappy pinwheels. I just bought the quick curve ruler, so some curved piecing is in my future s well.

I bet you are tired after your first day back at work. Have a nice cup of tea and put your feet up. :) or a a nice glass of wine, better yet!

Val! I loved this post so much that I came back to look again and I saw my comment from the other day did not post! I have no idea what happened. I will try again. I am glad you starting to get up and around. I am so in love with you made fat quarters. I just may have to "borrow" that idea! Take it easy! Hugs, Jane

Another lovely post filled with oodles and oodles of bright, happy colour. Your scrap quilt is amazing. Those scrap fat quarters are a delight. Glad to see you are feeling better. I hope your first day back with the kiddos was a good one.

Cathy said...

I really like all of your vibrant colors, and the pinwheels look great!

Michele said...

Love the dots and your Metro Rings is going to look great with those fabrics. I'm going to look at their rulers and patterns when I get to MQX this year. I'm so glad that you are feeling better. It will take some time before you can eat everything you used to without some things bothering you but eventually you will forget that the thing is even gone.

Kate said...

The pinwheel blocks are so bright. Glad you felt well enough to play in the sewing room some. Hope the work week didn't tire you out too much.
