Getting back to normal

With any luck, my house renovation interruptions will be on the decline so I can get back to normal sewing. I have not quilted in 2+ weeks. I've had limited piecing, but even that has been restricted due to distractions. Our house addition/renovation is set to get drywall on the walls next Tuesday, so I have the next 3 days to hopefully knock out a custom quilt.

In the mean time, here's a little progress on something I am puttering with. I have at least 4 blocks to redo because I used the wrong fabric. I assure you without the distractions, and having continuous quilting time, I will be much more focused. I have been unable to leave piecings out because of risk of sawdust, so they all go into bags at the end of any sewing session. It has been too easy to get mixed up on what fabrics go where.
Hope you have a warm & sunny Memorial day weekend-

I love it! Storm at sea is one of my favorites, and I really like the ribbon effect

that will be striking. I can't imagine getting anything done with pieces while construction was going on. Good for you!

Wow! Beautiful! Thats one tricky pattern! My mom started out making it as a quilt for someone...it turned into a table runner. Matching all the points was a pain!
