Clearing the shelves

I looked at my shelves this weekend and found a few projects already cut, just waiting to be sewn together. So I dusted them off and got to work.  I had a bit of "unquilting" to do this weekend, two days worth.  Not the most fun.  When I needed a break I picked up some of these little pieces and started making them into bigger pieces.  LOL looks like I needed a few breaks.  Do you know how hard it is to take out stitches with invisible thread????  That stuff is hard to see!
sorry about the bad picture, it actually is a bit brighter and cheerier, just 2.5 in squares sewn into 16 patch.  1.5 in strip all the way around and more 2.5 in squares.  Great size for a toddler
ahh tumblers, love them, just need to finish the borders on this one
Fraternal twin tumblers, girls above. Boy's waiting to be sewing together.  
HHST is together.  I'm not thrilled with it, not even sure I like it.  I'll see if quilting helps it. I wanted to do the just throw it together, I love how they look.  But I can just throw it together.  So I took the HSTs and sewed them all together the same way.  I don't think that helped.  Ehh, maybe I should just stick with a bit more control. This may get cut up into dog beds if I don't like it after quilting.  I just dunno about this one.
HHST - I dunno
Check out all the linky parties on the side bar  - lot of inspiration out there.

  2. Your quilts are wonderful. And don't cut the HST up into dog beds! It's a great quilt and your quilting will make it sing. I have one here that I do not like, but will donate it when I am finished with it. Someone will like it! :)

  4. I like the HHST! Those solids look great with the detailed quilting that you're getting so good at doing. My 2.5" square bin is about to overflow. Your framed patches have given me an idea! (The frames add a nice visual diversion.)

  5. Lol, my sewing table feels like that too, abandoned projects just waiting to be unearthed:). I like all your bright projects. I hop you do like I Dunno when it's quilted, it is modern and interesting

  6. Love your tumblers and the 2.5" simple layout with the multicolour is gorgeous. I like the greens in your HST! Interested to see how it changes with quilting.

  7. Great to see what you've been doing - your quilts are looking good - quilts out of nothing (scraps) are always fun! Your HHST looks great from here - quilting can really change a quilt so you may love it after you've done that!

  10. Your quilts are good. Don't cut them up for doggy beds. With your quilting they will be beautiful and lots of little ones would love their own bright, cheery quilt to cuddle with.

  11. I'm sorry about your two days of picking out quilting threads. I've done that before...no fun at all. I do like your three other projects. Not tackled a tumbler project yet. Do you use a rotary cutter and template or a die machine to cut the shapes? Agree with Dar, add some fun quilting and make a child happy. Sandi

  13. Bright and fun projects. You scrappy 16 patches turned out beautifully. I really like your HST quilt. I agree with Dar, if you don't like it after quilting, it would be a nice donation quilt for a little boy.
