We DID find a car to replace my Mazda so I can cross that off my list. I love our new Pilot and can't wait to take it on a trip!
I finished binding the two quilts for Ava. Unfortunately I didn't have enough blocks for two quilts made from purple wonky star blocks but I had just enough to make one. As it turned out, I liked all the blocks that were turned in better together than I did separately so it all worked out in the end. For the second quilt, I made a strip quilt from my stash and here's a sneak peak:
Which will be bound in this:
Here's a picture of the purple wonky star blocks before I pieced them:
I will post some more pictures once I upload them from my camera. Both quilts are on their way to Pennsylvania to meet Ava.
Do. Good Stitches is off to a great start this month. I designed a Chartreuse and Raspberry Spiderweb quilt and some of the girls have already started making blocks:
We had a nice weekend down at the lake with family to celebrate our 1st Anniversary. Most of our family members were there with us and that was really special. I took a bunch of photos but these are my favorites.
|My nieces and nephews. We got to babysit the girls last weekend and had a blast at the park and nearby festival.|
Hollie selected for her commissioned wonky star quilt. It's such a perfect fabric for binding and I love the color. When Hollie returned to her LQS to get some more for herself she bought an extra yard for me. Isn't she sweet?!
Matt's sister graduated in May from Appalachian State University:
That about wraps up all the updates I have for now. I still need to catch up on May and June do. Good Stitches blocks, A Dozen Quilters May and June Pillow Case Dresses (already sewn, just need to take pictures), do. Good Sitches Wonky Cross Quilt, update everyone on my exact cuts for the Lap size quilt in the Marshmallow Brochette QAL, and hopefully get another Inspired post out to you all.
I can't believe it's already June 8th. Where did May go?
