What's new???

I know, I promised some quilty pics and updates to be posted about a week ago. I'm terribly sorry, time is just flying by before I get a chance to post. Let's see if I can catch up on everything now...

First of all, I want to thank the ladies that sent me blocks for a quilt for a Union University Tornado victim. I have 5 blocks (and coordinating squares). Only 15 more to go...

We have a new online retailer carrying my patterns. I'm sure you are all familiar with the Fat Quarter Shop. If not, be sure to pay them a visit.

Also I've been using the wonderful Leaders and Enders method to work on the kit I got from Lazy Mazy's.

My church sewing guild has been working on a quilt to donate for an auction. The colors are so vibrant. It will be great to see how it looks when all put together.

I made a Bingo block for the next quilt guild meeting.

Here are two leaf blocks that will be used in one (or maybe two) quilts to be raffled off at our retreat in the fall.

I made some Wrapped Candy blocks for Melinda to make another adorable candy quilt.

Took a field trip to Arkansas last week to a quilt store that is closing down. I picked up some random goodies. Gentry came along and was so good. He also got a little sleepy on the ride up.

Hailey's quilt is coming along slowly, but surely. I can't show too much here as it is a surprise for her and she likes to check out my blog.

My new quilt/pattern has become the "turtle" in my life...slow and steady wins the race. I wanted to give you a very tiny sneak peek. I have altered the image just a bit though so that the final results will be a surprise. There are a lot of colors and fabrics in this quilt!

Tonight I need to work on a new QOYO block. It looks easy, just need to decide on the fabric choices and placement.

I know I've been working on more than that, but I honestly can't recall what all it may have been? This weekend will be the Farm & Gin show and I haven't made anything else for it, yet. And Friday night is one of the favorite church activities for hubby and I. It is the Low Country Boil and Hoedown. Now, we never dance, just watch the others. But the shrimp and other fixin's are just too wonderful to pass up.
