It's been an exciting week

It's only Wednesday and so far it's been a great week. I got to see my extended family this weekend and I won a $500 gift certificate to my LQS, Patched Works. YIPPEE!! I'm still a little bit in shock.

I've also been working on a challenge for my chapter of the MQG. It's coming right along, things are starting to fall into place, it'll all be official very soon. Super exciting.

Made good progress on this baby quilt. I'm currently putting the binding on. Thanks for all the encouragement about my quilting last week. As you all predicted, the quilting looks just fine on the back. I did quite a bit of quilting too, I used all the white space for some geometric straight line quilting. I really love how it turned out, I am going to use some of this quilting for a quilt that I'm going to keep. Can't wait to show you when it's all washed, otherwise you have to look at all my chalk lines.



I'm up to another swap, I'm doing the Picture Perfect Polaroid Block swap so I've been fussy cutting 2.5" squares. I agreed to 30 and cut 5 extra for the hostess and 11 for me. Should be fun.

 

Coming up maybe some bee blocks and then I'm working on a top secret project. Doing a little pattern testing and I've picked out some awesome fabric. Eventually you'll get to see that.

I'm linking up!
