A Busy Week!!

OK, I am sewwww in love!!
In love with Granny Squares!
So addictive!!! Soooo lovely!!
I’ve been working on them all week longggg!!
I got 26 blocks from my new Marmalade jelly roll.
I used 20 of them for my quilt top, which I hope to start quilting tomorrow!!  Woo hoo!!
And the other 6 became this!!
My new table runner!!
Which I did the hand sewing of the binding on during bee yesterday!!  I didn’t put a label on it, as I might want to use it on the reverse side as I love the old garden print I used from my stash!
Look at this snack table spread at bee yesterday!!
Check out this amazing sewing room!!! It has it’s own zipcode!!
It belongs to my dear bee friend, Linda!!  Lucky girl!!
It has a fireplace!!  OMG!!!  Love it!!
Soooo, what are you working on this weekend???


  1. Beautiful granny squares, Polly! I'm sure they will make a gorgeous quilt. The runner looks great!
    I'm hoping to work on a little quilt for my 1-year old. Hopefully, she'll take a long nap tomorrow!

  2. Love the squares and table runner Polly. I am working on a scrappy nine patch quilt top that will be for my oldest and the borders for my raggedy Ann quilt. It has been nice spending time in my sewing room.


  3. I love the granny squares too. They are sew awesome. I am going to start my squares next week. I had to get some white fabric first. I love your top and the table runner is wonderful.

  4. You have been making the most of it Polly!!! Love your granny squares, great table runner, all just too lovely, well done!!!!

  5. Love your blocks and your table runner! I get the feeling that you love retirement...giggle! Enjoy the rest of the day!

  6. Your granny squares are adorable! Looking forward to seeing how you quilt this one. Looks like retirement is going very well!

  7. Love your Great Grannies, I have finished nine blocks but ran out of Kona. Think mine will be made into a baby quilt. Love the Great Grannies, so much fun to make.

  8. Well, Polly... looks like retirement is agreeing with you just fine. I love your Granny squares. Can't wait to get started on my Granny squares... just need to catch up on a few other things!

  11. Hi Polly,
    love the new quilt top and the table runner. I am working on a quilted cover for my desk chair at school. Following the directions that you put on your blog.
    Sweeney and Lucy wanted me to be sure to say hi to Yogi.
    PS I would love to see more pictures of your friends quilting studio

  12. Okay, I agree with those blocks. I may be behind on this, but where is the pattern. I think I am in love.......gotta make some. And that room. Every gals (sewing) gal anyway, gotta have. It is beautiful. Thanks for sharing, I await to hear where is the pattern!!!!

  13. Love those blocks! I have not made them yet. At least, not quilting. I make them in yarn. And I am getting the itch to do them in a quilt!!! So pretty. I love the runner!!! And what a fabulous sewing room, indeed!!! Isn't it wonderful to be a part of a group of like minded women to share our craft?!!

  14. wow you have been busy!! those squares look great

  15. Polly I love those granny squares and can hardly wait to make some. That's on my agenda for August. :) blessings, marlene

  16. So pretty. I love your grannies!

  17. Those blocks and the finished runner are just gorgeous. Such wonderful eye candies! I've signed up but haven't finished a block yet!

  18. Love your Granny Squares and it's so wonderful that you got a quilt and a table runner out of your jelly roll. What an awesome sewing room!

  19. Our new home in Mn has a very small living room. One day we'll have to build a large famiy room on, its just too small for five growing kids. Perhaps then I can make it into my sewing room!! Until then, I'll be stuck with a corner again!

  20. I love all of your granny squares Polly... I can't believe that you got all of those done and a table runner ta' boot! Your Seasons Series on the stand are really sweet too!


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
