I've had to slow down on my sewing time this week.  Hubby had surgery (hernia repair) on Monday morning and I had to do nurse duty.  They sure have changed the after care immediately after surgery these days.  We had to check into the hospital at 6:00 am and he went to surgery around 7:15.  By 10:00am we were in the car heading home!  We both felt like he just had a drive thru repair.  lol

I didn't get back to my CherryLime Mash until Friday late morning.  I did manage to get all my star blocks finished so then I started sewing the blocks in rows.
And....I quickly found out that this quilt needs my constant concentration to make sure all block pieces are oriented the correct way.
It didn't take long to frog my mistake.

So I'm heading back to sew.... You can head over to Judy's Design Wall Monday to see what some of the other quilters have been up to.

(edit)  O M Gosh!  Thank you Eden!!  I didn't see that so I'm sure glad I posted this pic.  How can a person look and look and look at a quilt and not see a mistake.  But just sew that baby together and BOOM.... there it is!  Well now I'm off to frog and resew
Thanks for stopping by....Linda


  1. I hope hubby is feeling better. I love the pink, green, and black combo... been thinking about what I want to do with mine when I get around to working on it.


  2. Yours looks a lot like mine. I used pink, green and purple. Yours is looking wonderful and you'll love it when you're done. Just keep plugging away!

  3. The quilt is looking great and I hope by now Don is feeling much better.

  4. I love your colors, everything is coming together nicely! I agree with this one needing constant attention, I've had to frog several times myself. I will be triple checking before stitching on my next steps!
    Hope DH recovers quickly.

  5. Hey, I love those colors together! Is that black or chocolate brown? I think you did great... there is only one out of whack that I see and its on the edge! Great quilt.

  6. Your mystery quilt is looking great! Hope you get a little time to sew this week and your husband continues to recover quickly.

  7. Sure hope your husband feels better soon. Drive-thru repair - how TRUE!!

    Your Cherry Lime Mash is looking GREAT!! I especially like the border - ;))

    As a side note - I generally sew my quilts together in "chunks" rather than rows - I'll show you when I get there - but it helps me keep things "going the right way". In the meantime - take a look - see what I mean -

  8. LOVE the Pinks and greens! I hope you already found it but you have TWO strings going the wrong direction in the lower right corner.

  9. I had to go back and look to find the misoriented blocks. I really like your colorway.

  10. I agree this baby needs lots'o concentration putting it together. But I have to say I LOVE the alternate outer border. Wish I would have seen that before I finished. Looks great

  11. I really love the colors in this quilt. I'm filing it back in my brain for a future color combo :0)

    I hope your hubby is a good patient and heals quickly!!


  12. I love the color combo too! Hope your husband is feeling better and you have lots of time to work on it soon!

  13. Your quilt is looking great, Linda. I hope hubby is doing well by now. It's true now that you practically have to have a major transplant for surgery to not be a drive-through event. (Slight exaggeration, but only slight) :-)


I try to always reply back to anyone that takes their precious time to comment on my blog so I sure hope you have your email enabled.
