Feeling Lucky!

You know those Facebook posts where you are asked to leave a comment and maybe you'll be the winner of whatever prize is offered? I left a comment on the Fat Quarter post from Quilt Market and ended up winning a gorgeous bundle of Primitive Gatherings' fat quarters! They are almost too pretty to take apart.

More Farm Girl Vintage blocks...

And the Circa 2016 blocks from last Friday are done, also.

Pulled out a UFO from last summer that was the sew along for Temecula Quilts called Summer Sampler. I was a little over halfway done, but now it is ready for borders.

Slow Stitching Some Binding

General Jack is now complete! I finished the hand stitching for the binding today while watching the Tigers win their ballgame. It measures 44 inches square.

More Circa 2016 blocks from Friday.

And some Farm Girl Vintage blocks.

Mid May

The May Sleep At Home Retreat at The Cottage was last week. The machines were humming as we worked on various projects. First on my list was the latest Whatnots quilt called "Bountiful". This is one of my favorites of Kim Diehl's patterns.

Needed to keep up to date with the Circa 2016 blocks, so those were next.

Connie and I are making extra Farm Girl Vintage blocks for our QCU quilts. Last week I made the pumpkin and the tea kettle.

Yesterday I started the hand stitching for the binding on my General Jack quilt.

I probably did only half a dozen stitches when I got this helper on my lap.

Caught Up

Today I finished the two little Circa 2016 blocks from the April 22 post at Temecula Quilts. I am now up to date (until Friday).

I've also been working on the cross stitch pattern from my last post. Here is a picture of the pattern cover.

I'm using 18 count Aida so my sampler design will be about 10 inches square when finished.

Slow Stitching Sunday

I dug out another old UFO to work on the other day. This is a cross stitch piece by Linda Meyers based on the Jane Stickle quilt. Still lots of stitches left to do in this one. Linking up with Kathy at Slow Stitching Sunday.

More blocks for Farm Girl Vintage and Temecula's Circa 2016 quilts, too.

 Canning Jars
 Corn and Tomatoes
Milk can and Cherries

Still need to catch up with last week's Circa 2016 blocks. Loving these!
