Happy Friday!

I have been working up a couple of tutorials to share, but I wanted you to see the Mid Century Modern Bee block I finished for Stephanie!

I love Flying Geese and every time I work with them it makes me want to do more! But due to my sleepy Benadryl brain, I had to use the seam ripper a couple of times.

See that lower right hand corner there...yup...that one I did a couple of times and I still need to fix it. It should be within the seam allowance, but I will fix it before I send it off!

Also,I have been working on a couple of Gardenvale Stars blocks. Occasionally, I sew with a group of friends and some have expressed an interest in working on a Jen Kingwell quilt. 

So I thought I would make a few blocks and figure out a schedule...super bright, right? The block that is...
Too much? I kind of like it busy and bright.

I need to make a few more...

Have a great weekend! Yay Weekend!

 We finally have Spring in Ohio! It will probably last about 5 minutes and then we will be into the heat of Summer...ugh! Can you tell how excited I am for Summer? I really need to live where it is about 65 degrees for the better part of the year. Any ideas?

Stitching Away!

Where does the time go? 
The beginning of April has been filled with a good deal of sewing and a lot of dodging the flu!

I have continued to work on my hexie project...

And the 'January blocks'...

Excuse the lighting...Ohio has had very few cloudless days lately!

And I picked up a neglected top.  

I thought I would quilt this quirky little improv Bow-tie...but I need more batting...and so it waits..again :)

I love this little quilt and the pops of color! I think some organic straight line quilting might be just perfect. Now to get that batting!

I also changed the comment section on my blog so that I can reply within the comment section. I haven't decided yet if I like the change, but I noticed that some comments aren't sent to my email. I think it has something to do with Google plus...not sure. If anyone has had a similar experience or you know another option I would love to hear!
 happy thursday!
