What I've been working on

As promised, here are some of the things I've worked on recently.

Tracy's block for the Coast 2 Coast Block Party. She wanted blocks inspired by the Story People artwork. So this is my Queen. I embroidered her eyes and mouth and the clouds. And then I set down my needle and cannot find it for the life of me... luckily my bare feet haven't found it either!

Ellen's blocks for the C2C Bee too. She wanted "inside-out" blocks. I used Little Miss Shabby's tutorial for the second block and created my own design for the first.

I learned to be careful when working on a block in progress and removing cat hair with a lint roller...


And here's the front of my mom's birthday quilt I started last summer. I've had the quilt front done since August (of last year!) but was scared to quilt it since it is the largest quilt I've ever made. Mom volunteered to take it to a long-arm quilter so I gave it to her yesterday.
