It's that time again

 Time to share some more projects I've been working on.

1.  Monthly Mini.  I chose a Jan Patek pattern.  I made it just before Easter so I could hang it on the wall for Easter.

Isn't it cute.  I chose to use a gray print for the inner design.  Be sure to visit Wendy @ The Constant Quilter.

2.  April APQ UFO is a block of the month by Aunt Em called "September Sun".

I had 3 columns finished and needed two more columns.  I now need to find a backing fabric so I can get it quilted.

3.  Aviary BOM

I'm loving how this block turned out.  It is also the block in my header. 

4.   Prairie Flowers by Joe Morton.

This is a quilt I have been wanting to make for years.  I knew I had the book but couldn't find it.  I looked high and I looked low.  I finally found the book in my bedroom.  It was in a pile of books I wanted to read.

5.  This is a sneak peak of a quilt I am making for a Christmas gift.  In fact I am going to make 2 of them.  The top is finished.  From the picture below can you tell what it will be?

Call me crazy, but I love it.

Speaking of's the only way to describe our weather.  We went from 40 degree weather to 80 degrees the next day and then back to the 40's again.  The last couple of days have been in the 60's so I'm hoping Spring is finally here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

The Sun is Shining

 It's been so long since we've had sunny weather.  It is beautiful out.

I've been getting lots of sewing time in.

1.  Celebrating Mary Brown

I started this block last month.  It took some time to get all the little flowers finished.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.

I started a couple of new BOM's this month.

2.  Open Skies BOM by Connecting Threads

I love the blues in this quilt.

3.  Manchester by the Sea by Fig Tree Quilts.

I think this is going to be my favorite. 

4.  Autumn Frolic Month 7

I need to applique the owl's eyes.

5.  Sew Happy Quilt by Lori Holt.

These blocks are 4" and eventually will be the center of a couple of blocks.  

6.  Red and Green Quilt.

7.  This month's APQ UFO is #3.  That is my September Sun by Aunt Em.

I had 3 columns finish with 2 to go.  I'm pretty sure I can get the top finished this month and possibly quilted.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm getting ready to watch the Tiger game.  Hopefully I can finish my Aviary block 3 and if time allows, I have my April Mini prepped and ready to go.

Have a great day. 

Hugs, Cathy
