Some Blocks, A Forgotten Project, and I WON...

First the blocks.

These are the May blocks for Country Threads BOM.  

A Forgotten Project.

I had mentioned a while ago I was commissioned to make a memory quilt.  The quilt is made up of leaf blocks and log cabin blocks with a photo in the center.  I started working on the leaf blocks a while ago and then got busy with other projects.  I even forgot to put it on my to do list.  Over the weekend I got the photos for the log cabin blocks so I really need to get my butt in gear and get it done.  This and a dozen other projects.  Autumn is the favorite season of the girl this quilt is being made for.  I hope she likes it.

And now for I WON.

As you know every month I link up with Carrie at "A Passion for Applique" for UFO Busting.  I have been getting a lot of older projects finished by doing so.
Each month you pick 3 UFO's you want to finish.  You need to get at least one finished.  You get a chance to win a nice prize.  Well guess what????  I won for the month of April.  I won a pattern, 2 FQ and $20 gift certificate from The Raspberry Rabbits.

Here is the fabric and pattern....

  The above 2 patterns are what I picked from Michelle's shop.  They both work up to 12" x 12" and will be perfect for my standing quilt holder.  The squirrels are just a pattern.  The Christmas tree is a kit.

I purchased this package of Autumn color wool felt to use for the Squirrel block.

And Michelle sent me this as a gift.

A piece of gray wool felt, a pen, 2 pieces of Dove Raspberry Chocolate (it was delicious) and a wonderful card.  You really need to check out her patterns.

Well, my eyes are blood shot and I have a headache.  I'm proofing a pattern for a friend.  She is so talented.  So I'm taking some pain pills, starting dinner, and then doing nothing for the rest of the evening.

Wishing you a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

The maple leaf memory quilt makes me think of fall. Too soon for that but I do love the colors.
