Well I can check 2 of the quilts off my list now! I finished this baseball quilt and already gave it to the intended recipient. I got a squeal over it and my SIL even took it over to my FIL to show him too, she liked it so much. They are big baseball fans. I also got an email from my MIL who said my quilt was a real hit. Phew! For whatever reason I get kinda nervous when I design my own quilt with the recipient in mind. You just never know if they're going to like it and when you put that much effort in....I worry. Thankfully I was worried for nothing.

I am working on this mini quilt for the Modern She Made Swap 2. The them is "triangle" and I thought the compass needed more triangles so I made flying geese for the borders. I am hoping to get those sewn on along with corner pieces and then baste it today. I saw that my partner collects pin cushions, so as an extra, I'm going to try and whip one up for her. I have to mail it between the 15-19 and I'm thinking the 19th is probably going to be the date since I'm adding that pin cushion.

This weekend my LQG has it's monthly sew day. We decided to make a charity quilt for QuiltCon using extra blocks from their challenge. We are going to dedicate Saturday to working on that. I'll be sure to post about that soon!

I'm linking up!
