A little of this and a little of that

This weekend I only finished one thing, but I worked on several different things, here is what my sewing room looked like this weekend.
At the ironing board the second "Fat Quarter Quilt", I finished this one on Sunday.  Just didn't get a photo of the finished product.

The design wall, a Crazy Eight Quilt, I call "Java".

The basket is the "Green Piece Stuff", in the plastic tote are the curtain fabrics.

The sewing machine with a line of things waiting to be sewn.

The "Civil War Chronicles" block is first in line and block 1 of "Green Piece" is second in line. 

Here is the completed CWC block for January, I hope to be able to keep up with this one and try to get "caught up" on the Civil War Tribute quilt this year.

This is what the completed CWC quilt will look like, January's block is the center block it measures 16 x 16, the finished quilt will be 108 x 108.

I will try to take a photo of the completed Fat Quarter Quilt later today.  I also repaired a pair of jeans for youngest son's girlfriend.  I spent most of the day hand quilting and stitching the binding on the Fat Quarter Quilt and when that was finished I continued to work on the wool applique blocks for Green Piece, while watching the Patriots lose their chance at the Super Bowl :0( 

Well gotta get going, I need to work on paperwork this week and maybe I will sneak in some sewing!
