It's (Green) Saturday!

It's Saturday again? So soon? Does the week get away from you, too? That time thing is really something difficult for me. It's always later than I think. I guess that means I'm having fun. But these past two weeks have been anything but fun. (I'm having troubles with my Sciatica - you know the kind. Been to the Doctor and the X-ray unit... taking meds for pain. Just not like me.)

Then there is the indecision. I have again changed my mind about the Grandgirl wedding quilt. I've just not liked the previous two.

#1 seemed too dark...

#2 seemed too disjointed
I just couldn't seem to get a rhythm in my head.
#3 is pleasing me! I've enjoyed making the blocks so far, and so long as I keep having good results from my meds, I'll be able to cut and sew on it. It's a Disappearing 4 Patch, quite easy, but a lot of cutting... which is usually bad for my back. I think it'll be worth it in the end. It seems a joyful quilt, to me anyway. So my heart is in it. (Can you see it there?)

Some close-ups of my favorite blocks - above has some greens in it. (One of my favorite fabric pieces.)  There are other green blocks cut.

Love this floral. Sorry to the Grandson-in-law to be, but your quilt will have flowers.
Sew I'm back on track, I think, and starting over... making UFOs all over the place... singing, We Will, We Will Rock You! (Did I tell you I'm on meds?)
Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Soscrappy, if they'll have me.


  1. The disappearing four patch is so nice. It says all the comforts of home. I quite like #1 and it didn't look too dark to me but you have to be happy with it. Would your #1 blocks work as a border for #3? Or are they just not the right size?

  2. Hope you feel better soon. No fun being in pain. Love that first block the best!!!!

  3. Disappearing four patch is going to be pretty. But you know me, I absolutely love the first one.

  4. Disappearing 4 patches are one of my favorite blocks. I love the fabrics in yours,

  5. Sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well. Hopefully the new meds will keep you feeling well enough to sew. Nice combination of darks and lights in the D4P quilt.

  6. I hope that sciatica resolves soon. That can really put a crimp in every day activities and enjoyment.

    I’ve liked all the version of the wedding quilt but this one is my favourite. Keep it up!

  7. So sorry to hear you are having that back pain! It can really lay you low for sure! I love your disappearing 4-patch--the colors are really fresh looking! Feel better soon...hugs, julierose

  8. Love your header quilt and the disappearing 4 patch too!

  9. The one you think is too dark? I love. I made one similar but layer it out differently.
    No matter the direction you go, I am sure it will be loved and appreciated!
