Finish it up Friday 4/26/13

Last week was a busy, busy week.  I don't even know where to start.  Last Monday, as you probably know by now, was the Boston Marathon.  Every spring my in-laws always come to New England to support my brother-in-law in this race.  Thankfully, he was done and out of harms way when the explosions finally happened.  Facebook is an amazing thing.  About 10 mins after I heard about the explosions and after a few frantic facebook stalking moments, my brother-in-law finally posted on facebook that he and everyone he was with was ok.  Phew.  My deepest sympathies to those that were hurt.  :(  
To Boston With Love

The Vancover Modern Quilt Guild has started a drive to collect handmade flags to support the citizens of Boston.  All the details can be found here.  I plan on making at least one to send down.  I am a member of a guild but just as a floater so I am going to send them directly to the person running this drive.  The address can be found in that blog entry.

Now for my news.  I got a lot done this week!  
I finished these blocks for Bonnie Hunter's mystery, Lazy Sunday, that's in quiltmaker.  I just have to finish a few more small blocks and I will be done part 2 and all caught up.  I mentioned that this quilt was going to be twin size in the presence of my 9 year old daughter and she promptly claimed it.  And more than likely will end up with it.  

I started cutting up some more fabric for the Bonnie Hunter workshop I am attending May 3rd.  I have carpal tunnel so when a quilt has lots of tiny pieces I have to cut a little at a time.  I have asked for an Accuquilt for my birthday/anniversary in June so hopefully my husband took the hint.  :)

Jingle Belle pieced block #2

This is pieced block #2 from the free block of the month over at One Piece at a Time.  My points on the yellow aren't great so I might have to fix that.  Its bugging me.  There were a lot of seams right there.

Jingle belles appliqué #2

And this is Applique Block #2 from the same BOM.  She is releasing the next block this weekend so I am all caught up on this block of the month too!  I wish I could be caught up on all my block of the month clubs. However, I am about 6 months behind of my Dear Jane and about 3 months behind on my Baltimore and Bali.  I want to enter my Baltimore and Bali in a quilt show next year so I better get going on that.  Its all hand applique so it will take a bit of time. 

Today I am linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts.


  1. Oh!! I love the bright colors of your Lazy Sunday project, and am super jealous that you're doing the Jingle Belles BOM. I have way too many BOMs going right now to start that one as well, so I'm carefully saving everything for a later date. :D Your blocks look fabulous. Thanks for sharing at TGIFF.

  2. You're amazing to be able to keep up with all those projects! Love the applique work!
