Welcome to Getting Caught Up Hello, I am Lisa and if you haven’t been here before welcome! I hope you decide to follow along on my sewing and quilting adventures! This maybe old news to some of you and I love you for it! Thank you for sticking with me throughout the years!
I post on Instagram  Intheboondocksdaily  But my blogging hasn’t  covered a lot of the items  I have made!
I am working on baby quilts this week for new babies!



I am trying like other bloggers  to get back in the habit of  blogging at least once a week!  Now on to getting caught up!


I finished this free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop Wave Your Flag Tablerunner
Fabrics: Patriotic ones I had in my stash  by Patric Loose,  I also used his Stars line  for the back and Binding Kona Cottons- Dark Blue, Aqua & Snow White Thread: Aurifil 50 Wt It is a patchwork pattern and beginner friendly!
with 4th of July coming up you have time to do this!

(Click link to find out about the sew along)

Once again these block where not difficult and fun to do! Home life was busy here so I completed my 15 blocks in two days.  The sew along has you make one block a day of each block!






I loved making the little boats! I thought of our Sailors days they said  “A red sky at night was a sailors delight!” The meaning being calm seas!


If you are on Instagram, I am @intheboondocks, (Please follow, I will follow back)   and the way to see everyones blocks Is in the Search section type in the tag #tricketsal  last I read there are 5,000 blocks!



I think the best part is seeing everyones differences  in how they interpret what color choices to use!
Lines 1 - 10




Well today starts week 3 the lines are over and it is onto Shapes!
Thank you for reading and following along!

Wild Babies 2017 BOM

Image
Janeen Van Nickerk of Quilt Art Designs @quiltartdesigns is an amazing foundation paper piecing (FPP) designer! She is one of the reasons I love FPP! Her "Wild Babies BOM for 2017", are gorgeous so far and I admit up front I may not yet have the experience to do the blocks justice but I am going to try! Maybe you should join me!Each month she releases a block for free for that month but after the month is up it will cost you a few bucks. Make sure follow her blog so you see the post each month when it is released! Quilt Art Designs: January Block of the Month Then go to her Shop on Craftsy Quilt Art Designs | Craftsy and download the pattern. Print it off and get busy! This is January's block, Koala Baby, that you might have to pay for it you don't get it before January 31, 2017! I downloaded my pattern and will work on getting caught up between my other obligations! First thing to do is find the fabrics in the right colors! I love that her patterns give you …
