Lazy Sunday on a Lazy Sunday

Remember the stash box I posted about recently?  There were these little tags in there that you use to mark your blocks when you have your layout and help keep everything in order when you go to the sewing machine.  I pinned these tags in the upper left hand corner of each block.  I have tried other tips about how to stack them etc but I invariably sewed the wrong edges together.  These tags solved that problem.  I googled Quilt Dance and found the set for sale for $10.  I think they are worth it.

This is an old photo of my Lazy Sunday quilt top.  It is a Bonnie Hunter pattern and I am lucky enough to live close to the Plano quilt shop where she taught it as a New Years mystery.  It is now in one of her books.  More Adventures with Leaders and Enders if I'm not mistaken.  I now have these rows all sewn together and just finished the sashing rows.  I will start sewing some of these together today and begin working on the pieced borders.  I will at least get the strips I need cut so that I can work on the sub cutting and sewing as I go.

Hope you are getting to sew today and enjoying a lazy Sunday.

I know what you mean, I have to label rows also or get mixed up

I made my own tags, very similar design and they are great to keep things in order. Good to see you sewing more quilts and the Big Bag looked great as well.

Pretty quilt! I do the same thing with sticky notes ( and pin them on ) it sure makes life easier!
