When Projects Collide

I had hoped to be able to blog about finishing Matt's quilt and get it off my WIPs list, but that wasn't to be. It's not that Matt's quilt isn't finished--it is--but I haven't been able to wash it yet. And it's really kind of ugly with the washable marker quilting lines all over it.

However, I do have a good Friday finish. The tile in the laundry room where the washer and dryer sit is done! As of today, they are back in place. It is this DIY tiling project that has kept me from washing Matt's quilt.


The laundry room isn't complete finished, but having the washer and dryer back is a important milestone. Now we're down to just one little spot where the sink sits. The sink is residing in the garage at the moment. (Naturally, Charley had to get into the picture, although he's pretending not to care.)



Here's the latest update on the New York Beauty blocks. This brings the total to 78.



I'll be linking up over at Amylouwho's for Sew and Tell Friday. And for the first time, I'm going to link up at Lit and Laundry for Finished for Friday. Wander over to these blogs and see what everyone else has been up to.

  2. The tiling looks great! You really did a beautiful job, and it's Charlie inspected and approved. I am marveling at your NYB blocks and the cool fabric involved. Are those scissors and skulls!? Awesome. Also, the block 2nd from top left, the fabric in the inner quarter circle--love it.

  9. Great to have your laundry room done, we are 'helpless' when work is in progress, aren't we. :))
    Your NYB blocks are gorgeous! Love the colors (fabrics) you are using. I haven't done more than 2 blocks... Want to finish a Christmas tree skirt before I continue on other projects...
    Have a great weekend!

  20. Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for your kind words on my Yucca Whimsy - it was a fun quilt to make despite the fact that I had to make 135 circles for the applique, hahaha.
