It has been very hectic around here for the last several days. We started a remodel of our half bath and have had workers going in and out. In the middle of it all I started teaching beginning quilting at Pink Castle Fabrics and then promptly came down with a nasty virus. While the men are finishing up the bathroom today, I thought I'd hide out upstairs and show you what I've been working on lately. The first picture is one block from a quilt I started almost a year and a half ago. I put it away because quite frankly, I was a bit intimidated by it. It takes 400 HST's, 500 3 1/2" squares to make it. This block measures 18 1/2" unfinished. I have 24 more to make. I'm bound and determined to get it done. The pattern is "Country Road" from the book, "Weekend" by Blackbird Designs. The fabric is Blueberry Crumb Cake from Blackbird Designs also. I think it will be quite stunning when it's finished. It is a gift for my SIL (that she knows about). The second quilt top is a recent finish. It was a custom order from a family member who is going to have a little one soon. The fabric is Raggedy Ann and Andy from Daisy Kingdom. The pattern is "Tagged" from the book, "Growing Up Modern" by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew. This is a twin size and great for showcasing novelty prints. I continue to knit away for a swap I'm involved in on IG, made much more enjoyable by the new yarn bowl I purchased. Be sure to visit me on IG as I tend to post more pictures there when I'm unable to blog. The weather here continues to be cold, snowy or rainy and quite dreary. I hope you have sunshine wherever you are!
