Sow Along 4-6

I was able to cut another 3 blocks and get them sewn up in little bits of time here and there over the last couple of days. These are the second set of three blocks which can be found here at Randy's blog.
They are Autumn Tints, Box and Calico Puzzle. They were really easy to piece and Randy's directions were wonderful.

I would have shown all six together but the upload is not working for me right now. Maybe with the next batch.

I was also able to finish the hand quilting on one of the quilt square along blocks (March) and have started on the second one that I have ready to go from February. I hope to get this month's block cut out today and maybe a little bit of sewing done on it. Since I am planning to do the remaining three on the pattern.... I am going to start with the easiest one today so I'll have it ready for hand quilting this weekend. I'm finding that if I have it hanging around in the living room I can get a lot done on it while watching the kids a bit during the day. One length of thread worked on here and there.... and you get a done project very quickly. I am starting to feel more comfortable with the hand quilting (I am too lazy to mark anything so it is all done free hand) and think once I get caught up on these blocks I'll pull out the fireworks quilt from last year's July rainbow challenge and work on getting that quilted. Here is a picture of the fireworks top from last year.

Sounds like you are making a lots of good progress in your moments of stolen time. Having something ready to go always seems to be the key.

I agree that having everything prepped and ready makes it a lot easier to work on a project during small moments of time. Working on a hand project in bits and pieces really does add up.
