Making Progress

I've been busy....

I finished the third applique border of my Lori and Randy QAL from 2013.



I added my initials at the top.  Now I need to prep the applique for the final side and it will be ready to quilt.  My progress was slow but I am so happy with the way it turned out.


Next up is my Sugar Shack BOM.


Here are the first 5 blocks.  The colors are different for me but I am having fun with it.


Up next Pat Sloan's Globetrotting BOM.


The block on the right is May's block.  I am keeping this patriotic looking.


Next we have the Country Threads BOM.


Up to now we have been making 2 blocks a month with 2 different sizes.  This month we made just one block, the one that is bottom right.  This block is 24".  I have no clue how all these blocks are going to fit together.  But I like how they are looking.  I have used mostly scraps for this one.


And finally my Aurifil BOM.  I think I already showed you these blocks.


Again I am using colors out of my comfort zone.  I think I might redo the first block and add some red polka dots to it.

That's it for the first 4 days of May.  I'm hoping to get a lot done this week.  Next week we are going camping.  It is still cool and rains off and on but we can't wait to sit around a campfire.  I plan on prepping some applique blocks so I can get some hand work done and I have a ton of books on my Kindle.  Hopefully it will be a relaxing time.  Until then....it's sew, sew, sew.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Cinco deMayo.

Hugs, Cathy

You are moving right along on all those projects. The Lori sew-along piece is my favorite. Good prim style applique.
