Finals Equal

Not so final for me!
  I have been running around bus driving my oldest to and fro to school.  When did Finals mean half days all week?  I remember taking several in one day when I was in high school.  I wish I had more done in one week than I do!!!
Uh, I dating myself?  Am I becoming one of those "back in the day...." moms?

Magnetic Baby Food Jar Storage

I finally got all my buttons sorted, organized and off my center cutting island.  The jars, surprisingly, took a ton of room and we know us quilters/crafters need some serious elbow space.  To find out the process I explained HERE.  I don't think you will be disappointed at the difficulty they were to make.  I plan to do some more with particular...possibly my needles?

Do. Good Stitches Blocks
 This month, my group Imagine. do. Good Stitches quilter asked us to make two blocks. The Rolling Stone/Radiant Ring.  We were instructed to just go with it as long as we used yellow, orange, apple/lime green, aqua/teal, and white.

It was actually delightful to just focus on a block and not have to worry about the end result.  I think I am really going to enjoy this charity!

I especially liked that it didn't take a long time.  A nice afternoon project.  Easy to squeeze in from start to finish!
I hope my fabric selections and layouts are good enough!

 In Progress:

Retro Flowers QAL

I realized I was vastly running out of time.  So after cutting and piecing the curves, I worked on it Friday afternoon.


I have my work cut out for me!  This is slow going process because my die cuts are not the same measurements as the pattern.  

All I have to show for the work is 19 petals.  I decided to hold off on piecing the whole flower because I had an idea....
We shall see!

Zoo Animal Quilts for Twins
I have cut all of my fabrics.  I have my appliques ready to go.  
And I have pieced the inner row and the outer rows. 

Look familiar?  Yes...Just like my entry for the Quilt Blogger's Festival.  Nomination and voting is starting to happen.  I really need to finish looking at all the quilts!

 Now to piece the outer row, applique, and quilt.  
I have that "making progress" feeling.  Don't you love that feeling?

No Progress:
