A Few Things I've Been Working On...

This is the latest EQ7 BOM.  I worked on it after I did my last post.  After I made it I put all the blocks from this BOM on the design wall.

I really like how these blocks are looking.  Can't wait to finish this one.

The latest Barbara Brackman CV BOW.  I was going to try an easier way but I really liked the way the stripes looked.

I was asked to show all my Floribunda blocks that I finished.  13 all together.  You know it is funny how they look so different in person than they do in a picture. 

Today I played around and did a border on my Follow Your Bliss Quilt-a-Long.  I was going to make log cabin blocks but really didn't want to do paper piecing for this.  I like how this one works.   I'm working on this with Sarah Vee @ Sew Joy (a link is on my side bar).

The heat has been terrible here.  Then last night we had rain, today we had rain, and now it is cooler but still high humidity.  Hope it is comfortable where ever you may be.

Just heard that my Nephew Nate who is stationed in Germany with his wife Ashley and adorable son Talin are expecting there second son.  Now I can start the baby quilt.

So as always, I wish you a quilty day.

Hugs, Cathy

Go Detroit Tigers!!!!

You have so many things in the works (I guess we all do, but I only have 2 that I am currently sewing on).
Your EQ7 BOMs are beautiful. I love the fabrics and all of the blocks are very visually pleasing.
Thanks for showing all of your Floribunda blocks together. I had the same reaction when I took a photo of mine. You are really moving along on it.
Fun stuff! Thanks for sharing it all.

Everything is so great. Lots of eye candy here today.

Looks like we will see a baby quilt soon from you. Fun!

I am loving the look of your EQ blocks, and the stripes on your second block are amazing...good job! Everything you do is wonderful, I think I need to come take piecing lessons from you.

Try to stay cool - the humidity has been just awful, hasn't it?

Love your BOM. Interesting background. I really like it. Your "Only 1 girl" wallhanging is so cute. At first I thought it said "angel". That would work too! Very cute.
