Wow Nicole I am impressed with all of your piecing and homeschooling as well!
I have been watching the laundry basket mystery but didn’t jump in but it sure was tempting. Carries house pattern is calling me and ai am also working on blockheads 3. I am fortunate to have customer quilts to work on and am also home for the duration. I sure am thankful for my quilting!
In Ontario Canada where I am only essential business is allowed open so no salons open here either...


I love the Laundry Basket project, but I don't feel like making a large project. Can you share what other sew-alongs you are working on?

There are only sew many hours in a day, and the sewing of knowledge is great work. Four hours of one on one time is probably close to as effective as a full day of school, possibly more since you can more quickly see when things are not being grasped. What a gift for you to invest that time in Eva.

I am going to miss my hairdresser too! Thankfully, I just saw her last week, but a hat might be in my future too. Lol
Your blocks look great! I could never get those done in a day.

LIfe goes on doesn't it. I wake up every morning and the first thing I do is say a silent prayer that no one I know is sick or gets sick. I am quilting and sewing and listening to the news. I am also taking an outside walk everyday. Don't know how much longer that will be allowed. I am glad to hear things are OK with you. BE well and be safe!



My hairdresser is closed too and I joked to my husband that it means we will soon see just how gray my hair is. He looked startled and it turns out he was not aware I had been coloring my hair (I've been doing it for about 6 years). Apparently he didn't notice that it was taking 3 hours every time I went for a "hair cut."


Homeschooling is something Eva will always remember about your time together. One day in the future, she'll tell her children & grandchildren about her time spent learning at home with you. The 'new' fabric adds interest without over-powering the blocks. It's nice that you're getting some time to work on your quilt along projects, too. Stay well!

I’m using the same red and tan combo! Great minds think alike :). Mine is very scrappy, using some from a fat quarter collection and also pulling from scraps and stash. There is so. much.fabric in my storage that I need to use up! Enjoy your stitching time. Did you see the correction I’m cutting for the Block 5? Your granddaughter is such a cutie.


4 hrs a day sound pretty productive to me. my hair is a mess but it is out of my control.
