I really did a lot of sewing this week, but I can't show it to you because it was on a secret project.  If you want to see it you will have to go here.   

Last year, when we were in New Hampshire, I went to Keepsake Quilting and bought a charm pack of purple squares.  Then, I didn't know what I was going to do with them.  A couple months ago Pat Sloan issued a challenge for using HSTs.  The lightbulb went on and while we were on our trip to Oregon, I made HSTs with the purple. I'm going to make a table runner out of these.

Monday night was my quilters' guild meeting and I won a door prize!  I won 2 yards of this cute flannel fabric.  I wonder what I'll do with it?

Besides working on my secret project, I got started on my little basket BOM blocks.  I am a month behind, so I have 24 little baskets to appliqué!  I also made more strip blocks for a donation quilt.  But, the secret project was my main concern and I feel better now.  If you need permission to visit my secret project blog, let me know and I will send you an invitation.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. What a fun use for the fun purple charms! I'm sure you'll also put that lovely flannel to good use. I remember sheets for my doll bed that my grandmother made out of fun flannel prints.

  2. Love the purple HSTs! They will make a lovely runner--and with that chevron look, it is so up-to-date! : )
    That is a cute flannel you won--lots of possibilities!

  3. Oh, I love purples! And this looks like the perfect way to use those charms...

    Congrats on winning cute flannel! I'm sure you'll think up something to use it for...

  4. The HST look so pretty in that design. I'm sure you will make something lovely for your grandchildren with the pretty flannel.

  5. Don't you just love all the different things you can do with half squares? You've chosen a very interesting pattern. I'm sure you'll find a purpose for the flannel too. ---"Love"

  6. Love the purple HST. And of course chevrons are still everywhere.
