Would you believe I actually have a May finish? I got my green and cream quilt back from the quilter, and put the binding on Saturday. I worked on it every minute I had and finished it in one day. Sunday morning I washed and dried it, and it is now clean and soft and crinkly. I love it! Thank you to all the ladies in the swap for the beautiful blocks. I still have to put the label on it, and I want to list the names of all who contributed to it.
Finishing up a quilt made with swap blocks makes me really want to finish up another one. I'm still working on the D9P from the fall, but I have to admit I haven't worked very hard on it. It still has a long way to go, and I'm trying to get a little bit done each day. As I promised, I'm not going to bore you with another picture of it until it's done.
I finally started working on the blocks that I got from the Red White and Blue No Sew Swap. As usual, I made a mistake on the very first one, and had to find another fabric to add to the block. I have a lot, and I do mean a lot, of 4" red fabric squares, but of course, none that really matched what was already in the block. I messed up one of the half square triangles, and it was way too small. Since the middle square was the same, I substituted a blue star fabric. I think it looks okay, and at least it keeps all the corners the same.
Also, look at the beautiful block I got from a monthly swap I'm in. The colors will go just perfectly with the other blocks I gotten in this swap. Thank you Ellen.

Welcome to my blog. As you can see from my WIP list, my interests are varied, but unfortunately, keep me sitting still to complete them. I am retired, and enjoying all the freedom it brings. My hubby and I enjoy travel, especially cruises, and you can count on seeing pictures of our travels here on occasion. So, I hope you enjoy what I put here, as much as I enjoy my visits to your blog.
