One Thing, One Week Cahllenge 1

OK, so I'm a day late, but it's been busy round here, I promise!  Back to the Challenge! 

So, like I said, I wanted to get my pinwheels blocks at least turned into a top.  I knew with all the other things going on here it would be too much to hope for a finished quilt.  How did I get on? 

patience....

perseverance...

and a little luck ....   thanks to the Teenage Diva being out most of the time  ...  :)


Not only did I manage to piece the top, I got it quilted too!  Phew, now that's a bonus!  AND.....

I've got the binding sewn on, I just need to sit and sew it down by hand on the back.  This is one happy bunny!   Thanks Amy!  This is 64" x 72", a reasonable sized quilt for sure.

For this week, I plan to get caught up on my Bees Knees Bee blocks (I have June and August to complete)  and I would also like to get caught up on the Moose on the Porch Jelly Roll Quilt along blocks.  I'm pretty far behind, like weeks!  I can't show you pics right now, because I haven't taken any, but I may get back to you on that score! 

So how did you get on?

Amy has a Mr Linky so you can see how everyone else has done, go take a look!  The button on the side bar should take you there. 




Happy Quilting!

Wow wow wow wow wow that is soooo beautiful. What do you quilt on - a sewing machine or a longarm? The quilt is fabulous but the quilting is really amazing.
