this & that

This past week, the trio were off from school for Spring Break, so it feels like I didn't get much done, but looking at the photos, I guess I did get a few things done... :o)

First off, I made siggie blocks for the Dear Jane Signature Block Swap - 62 blocks, which I mailed off yesterday morning, and then the number changed to 64/65, so I have 5 more ready to mail off tomorrow... A few extra, just in case! HA!


This is a block from the *Granny's Star* quilt that I am making for my friend, Sharon. (No blog - she is the one I did the Beachfront Cottage quilt for, that was all hand-quilted.) She bought the kit for this one, but it will just be tied, not quilted, per her request... I am enjoying the 1930s fabrics... :o) These are large blocks - 16". I just have to put the blocks into rows, add borders and some applique on the borders... :o) I will post more pics as I make more progress... :o)

And last, but *CERTAINLY* not least... :o))) I got back Anna and Elizabeth's birthday quilts back from Carol. I am trading piecing a couple of kits for her, and she is quilting the trio's birthday quilts. I will tell you, I think I am the one that is getting the better end of this deal! I got the binding added to Anna's quilt, so here are the final pictures:




The quilting is just gorgeous - I know Anna will love it! Pink thread, too! What more could a girl ask for! :o) Be sure to click on the pictures, to get a better view! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Carol! I hope to have the binding put on Elizabeth's quilt later this week, or maybe this weekend... Watch this space for pictures... :o)

Hope you all are having a good week, so far!

Anna's quilt is absolutely breathtaking! She's going to love it. I love the 30's block too. I like 30's fabrics. You're doing a great job too, they look like they take a lot of piecing.
