I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post. Time just flies by, doesn't it? Especially when you keep busy! I have been quilting like crazy, and always, I can't show all the pictures...but I can show some of them!
First is a Quilt of Valor made by my local quilting group...we meet weekly, and once a month we work on these QOV blocks. I really do like this string design.
One of the ladies in our group will add the binding...and then it will be donated to the local QOV chapter.
I quilted two charity quilts that I'll take to retreat in May, where they will be donated to a local crisis pregnancy center. This first one is a "Quick Strippie," and the pattern can be found on MaryQuilts.com. I love it!
The second quilt was the purple disappearing 4 patch I made a couple months ago....both quilts still need binding.
Seems I'm working with purple a lot lately! Last week, I assembled this "Chinese Coins" quilt...it's another pattern from MaryQuilts.com! It will be a gift for a new baby in the family. It's made from leftover fabrics from the Easy Street quilt, plus a few purple charms left from a recent charm swap (that disappearing 4 patch also used those purple charms!). I had a few strips left over, so I made a matching totebag for the mom-to-be. :)
It's now quilted and also awaiting binding....
Believe it or not, I also spent a week in New Mexico with my hubby last week. He attended a week-long class and I tagged along and had a long relaxing week reading, quilt shop exploring, and embroidery! I finished this snowman embroidery that a shared a few months ago...now it needs the piece blocks and it will really be finished.
Here is just a fun picture of hubby and I at a local furniture store...we thought this big chair was funny. I like that I look so small. :P
