Time Flies

 Especially when you are busy.  I was hoping to post earlier.  I didn't realize the date.  Better late than never.

We have had the craziest weather.  Cold, snow, rain, warm and cold again.  Yesterday it was cold.  The temp was in the 20's.  Today it is in the 50's.  The sun is shining and the sky is blue. I'm hoping the weather is going to stay right where it is so I can start walking again.

Meanwhile in my basement sewing room I've been busy.

1.  My APQ UFO is Home For The Holidays.  It is a BOM from Connecting Threads and ran for 6 months.  I got the first 3 months done.  

These are the last 3 rows.  I need to add a strip of fabric between each row, then I need to add an inner border.  The next border is made up of squares of the fabric used in the blocks.  And finally add the final border of black fabric.  I hope I can finish this one this month.

2.  I started a quilt last month for one of my daughters who is having surgery.  It was supposed to finished by the sixth of this month but they delayed it till May. 

It was made using batiks.  I have all the blocks sewn together.  I need to add an inner border and outer border then quilt it.

3.  Red and Green Blocks.  I'm trying to make 2 blocks a month.

Here are this month's blocks.

And above are all the blocks I have made so far.

4.  Autumn Frolic from Fig Tree Quilts.

Each month the blocks get sweeter.  I love the gathering basket and the mushrooms.

5.  Be My Neighbor.  I decided to work on this quilt Pat Sloan is hosting.

This is block one.

I continue to work on this month Aviary block.  Hopefully I will be finished in a day or two so I can show you the block.

I hope you are enjoying some good weather and that Winter has finally left us.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy
