What I've been up to

I've been building Lego Storm Trooper transport ships for Alex who is currently obsessed with Legos and Star Wars

I've been knitting dishcloths. They are a great quick project to have on hand when you are watching TV or stuck sitting in a waiting room.

I've been making lots and lots of double pinwheel 1/4 blocks. I have had the Eleanor Burns Double Pinwheel Quilt book for quite a while and have never made one. Since getting back from Quilt Camp I have been quilting a lot more and after I finished Abbie's quilt I decided to finally make a double pinwheel quilt. I raided my bin of scraps and my precut 2 1/2" strips and 2 1/2'x4 1/2" bricks and my stash for all red, blue and tan fabrics. I am going to make 1/4 blocks until I either run out of fabric or get sick of making them and that is how big the quilt is going to be.
