Grandmother's Choice Block of the Week Progress

Progress??  Well it is slow and steady...like the turtle....

Several weeks ago, I spent some time in the sewing room (unlike this weekend) and I was able to get several more blocks in the Grandmother's Choice Block of the Week complete.  Can I get a Whoop! Whoop!

You may recall that I had a tough time with Block 2.  Yes, it was definitely a struggle challenge disaster from which I recovered...finally I got it to work.

So, to recap...here is Block 2 and 1.  Block 2 looks harmless enough, right?  Well, trust me...it isn't!!


Block 2 is finished and on to Grandmother's Choice BOW 3 Union Square Red Rebellion.  This one was much easier although I was a little worried when I started to work on it.  A little gun shy after Block 2 I suspect.


Next up...Grandmother's Choice BOW 4 Kansas Sunflower.  Well this one caused a few choice words I have to say...but at least I cut it out only once...unlike Block 2 which required three cuts.  I don't love the center and I may go back and redo that  part but considering the difficulty of the block...I may not!  :)


And then there was Grandmother's Choice BOW 5  New Jersey Suffrage Pioneer.  This one was pretty easy...thankfully.  


Here are the first five all together...whoohoo...only 44 more to go! :)


I have a couple more complete but I think I will save those for a later post.  

For some reason...while I have had more opportunities to sew (this weekend being an exception) I haven't had much opportunity to post.  And let's face it...the sewing is the best part...RIGHT!?

So besides the Grandmother's Choice BOW...what am I doing???

Well, I am working on putting my Craftsy BOM blocks together into a quilt top. I have the two Studio Stitch $5 BOM Quilts that I am staying current with...thankfully!  Plus I have a couple more quilts in the works that I would love to get complete by the end of the year (HA...even I am laughing at that!).  I am also working on my knitting...which has kind of become a sort of mini passion for me. If I can only manage to stop tearing out my stitches.  I will definitely have to share some of my progress.  

Hopefully, I can spend more time in the Quilt Room this week than I did the past one...one hour would make me a winner!  :)

I would love to hear what you are working on!  Please share...

Until then...

~~Quilt Much!!!
