Playing with fabrics this weekend

I have been playing with fabrics this weekend, and it feels so good to finally back in my sewing room again! My neck has been hurting a lot lately, but I've felt a bit better the last couple of days, so I ignored the pain and pieced on :o) Nothing is better than some fabric therapy, right?

I finished 24 Haystack blocks and will use them for a couple of new table runners like the one I made earlier this summer. You can see it here.
 Since I started ironing the seams open (which is a technique I use for smaller blocks)  I've used a little glue to make the blocks lay flat by adding it at every point they meet.

This is how my block looks like before adding the glue:

This is how it looks after adding a little dot of glue:

Earlier this summer I started on the "Button up" quilt designed by Cluck Cluck Sew. I finished piecing these blocks, but I never got to iron the last two seams on them.... Well, I ironed the seams and added a dot of glue to make them lay flat :o) 14 more blocks to add to the other pile I finished!
I have a few more pieces cut for these blocks too, so I will try to finish up a few more next week.

I'm going to use the same fabrics for my Farmers Wife 1930s quilt when the Sew Along starts. Can't wait to get started, I know it will be so much fun! Are you joining us? 

Wish you all a great new and creative week!
Hugs,
Laila

I see beautiful blocks in beautiful colours, and the thing I like best about it is that you are having fun creating!

Jag måste få säga att jag blev så förtjust i de vackra tygerna som Du syr Dina block i. En riktig humörshöjare!
