Homespun Tornado

I've been attempting to work on the Lincoln quilt blocks, but having to dig out my boxes, look through for a few blocks,  put boxes away, make blocks... was not being efficient. I thought I'd just get all of the blocks cut out! That was my Sunday project. 

 I've got blocks cut out to make 36 sixteen patches. 
 Here a stack...
 There a stack...
 Everywhere a stack stack!


A quilter never wastes, right?! I even found these in my box! Yes, I cut a strip!!
And the stacks await my arrival this week to start cutting for the sawtooth stars. Then I will organize them and have my "normal" messy room back.

Have a lovely Monday!

  3. Love the orange boxers. You will always remember that was what that block was made from each time you view the quilt.

  4. Thanks for showing your sewing room like it really looks. Pristine sewing rooms are inspiring but they only look like that if they are not being used. I love the blocks pinned up on the walls. Your room looks just as it should! Love your plaid stars, I have had that pattern for years but not gotten to it. Will continue to save my homespuns. Love the orange checked boxers, too fun!

  6. Your sewing room looks like mine - everywhere a stack, stack. LOL I've never worked with homespuns. They look so cozy because of the warm colors.

  7. Oh, been there, done that! A quilter does what they have to do to achieve the end in mind, even if that means a fabric explosion all over the room!
    Fun to get a glimpse of your sewing space. :)

  8. I really like this quilt and plan to make several for my sons & nephews. I have homespun fabric from the 90's, not to mention all the shirts I've cut up & saved over the last 30 years. I think all my 20 something boys will like this type of quilt. I'm anxious to see yours finished. You have some great colors in the blocks!

  11. That will be a beautiful quilt, love using homespuns and scraps.
    I do like the idea of prepping all the blocks and putting them in a box, then I have it ready for when I work on it.

  12. I can totally relate to the 'tornado' process. It just happens sometimes. But the reward will be worth it! Love those homespuns.

  13. That tornado process is what keeps me from sewing far too often.

  14. those boxers cracked me up !

  15. I know that kind of tornado! lol..... The boxers remind me of the 3 or 4 XXL scrub shirts that are in my stash waiting to be cut up and used for something one of these days.

  16. Creativity is not a tidy process! If that's true then I'm really really creative! Lol!

  17. A woman with a clean sewing room never accomplishes anything!

  18. Thanks for the glimpse of your real sewing area. It looks a lot like mine does. Too often the photos you see look like a magazine layout - all color coordinated and everything in it's place - not realistic at all. It's fun working with re-purposed plaids. I made one quilt for my nephew and now his brother wants one.

  19. Would love to be doing this one! I have a huge trunk full of homespun too. I love the wide back you got & I also love how you pieced the blues one! Lots of sew sewing going on! Always beautiful. I feel better now, because my sewing room looks just like yours! 😂 Your blocks look awesome by the way!

  20. This is the only type of tornado I would be willing to participate in! You are an inspiration dear Lori.
