back to your regularly scheduled program

We're going to pretend it hasn't been a month.

Okay?

Okay.  ;)

You guys are the best.

Lots in the works right now...first off, I finished up my sister's birthday quilt.

Cheryl's 30th Birthday Quilt


The block is from 99 Modern Blocks.  I omitted the border and joined them all together.  The fabric is Fig Tree Quilts Butterscotch and Roses.

Thirty blocks for her thirtieth birthday.  I delivered it to her last weekend when I went up to New York.  Very well received!

I also finished up another block for the Modern 99 Bee.

Modern 99 Bee Block for Robin


Love this one...it's in the running for my month.  I have May, so I need to decide soon!  Any other suggestions?

Lastly, I finished up my mini quilt for the Name Game Swap.  My partner hasn't received it yet, so I've got the name covered up, but this is it...

I started out with some scrappy strips, including selvages...and an idea I sketched out.

Name Game Swap Peek


Here's the top completed...I changed it up a bit as I worked on it.

And here it's done...

Love this.  Seriously love.  It's going to be hard to let go.  I hope my partner likes it as well!

Other things in the works...some socks (almost done!), a shawl, goodies for the BMQG - bee blocks, a round robin, a pincushion - yikes...I need to get to work!

Luckily I've finally relented and become addicted to this...
