There’s a bit of this and that happening around here. March was my month to design and quilt for the Grace circle of do. Good Stitches and I’ve been enjoying receiving my bee member’s blocks for the I Spy ABCs quilt. I’ve received a bunch of letter blocks since this photo was taken, but it’ll have to do.

Speaking of do. Good Stitches, April instructions for the Grace circle are out and I whipped up my blue star blocks. This was my first time paper piecing and I loved it. Well, I pretty much faced an epic fail on my first attempt. To be honest, these are my 2nd and 3rd blocks. Loved making them and am looking forward to more paper piecing in my future.

Also, I’m busy trying to finish up the Ocean Friends quilt, which was an order from Japan. I like to think of it in an improv sort of way. There’s no pattern and it’s just play by play. In this photo, the jellyfish and angelfish are WAY out of proportion. Since, I’ve down sized the angelfish and gave her an eyeball. Ha! Also, turned that massive “spaceship” jellyfish into 2 smaller ones. It’s a lot better now.

Still working on the larger Crown Royal quilt, which is another order for TipToeTango quilts. The top is made from crown royal bags and Kona in medium grey. The fabric for the back of the quilt hasn’t arrived at Hawthorne Threads just yet. Once it does, I’ll be able to finish. As simple as it is, I think the quilting will add some interest and I’m planning on a great finish.

Last, but not least, I still need to bind my Double Disappearing 9 Patch quilt for my bed. Yes, occasionally I get to keep something I made. What a concept. Ha!

That’s quite a bit more WIPs than usual. Wouldn’t you know, I have more quilt orders that I haven’t started on too. It’s a busy time in my sewing room for sure.
p.s. my apologizes for iphone pics, but sometimes that’s all i remember to do.
