Moving It Forward

This last week I spent a lot of time with my feet up.  My toe seems to be doing well, but my foot is still quite swollen.  So up the feet go.  While they were up I tore the paper off my stars and kites quilt.  Doing that reminded me of why I don't like paper piecing.  It's messy and takes to long to tear all that paper.
My Quilty Hug Sew In is Tuesday so I cut a bunch of half square triangles with my AccuQuilt Go (you can see my process here.) Next I made up these blocks.  I like to have a sample so when someone chooses a project box they know what they will be making.  
It is a little tricky to sew with my foot up, but I have practice.  Three knee surgeries will do that.  I have a little garbage can I put a project box on then I put a quilt on top of that so it's soft and prop my leg up.  Where there's a will there's a way.  I definitely have the will.  So pretty or  not I've found a way.
Now it's your turn to share your progress.  What have you been moving forward?  Link up and let us see. 


  1. where there is a will there is a way - one can always do some form of quilting when you are laid up - hope your foot heals soon

  2. I hope you heal quickly. No surgery then? That would be a very good thing.

  3. Oh your poor toe! Jut reading about it makes my toe hurt for you!! Heal fast!!!

  4. Em, you absolutely TOTALLY have the will -- you are the poster child of the Strong-Willed Quilter! I hope you're healed and have regained full "powers" soon. (I've been watching way too many superhero movies with my kids lately...)
