A Bit of Progress

I have, apparently, been doing some quilty things, just not blogging about them, so here is a little bit of an update.

The 2012 FQS Designer Mystery BOM finally (almost 6 weeks, which is very unusual when I send them out through our local shop, but I hear the quilter was ill so it’s all good. Mostly. I don’t have pictures yet, but the quilting does not go all the way to the edge on two sides. Now, I know that it’s a big pattern and wouldn’t fit in those areas, but I would have gone off the edge if I’d been doing it. Oh, well, the texture looks awesome for this quilt and I do love it. I have made the binding and will attach it sometime soon.

I also picked up the next block(s) for the Saturday Sampler. It’s the teal block and there are two of them, so I got the free one and paid $5 for the second one. I will start working on putting those together soon.

First, however, I am trying to complete the cutting for Surrounded by Scraps. I need to complete the cutting before I can actually do clue 2. I’m getting close. There will be a very scrappy background.

I did, however, make two blocks this weekend for Quilts for Cure. Here they are:

I also had a bit of fun with my hair. The second picture is from an angle that looks icky to me and makes me look dorkier than I think I normally look, but it was taken by my hairdresser and her focus was the hair, so…

And, even though, Valentine’s Day is officially over, I thought I’d share this picture from outside our local pet shop:

I’m thinking the dog might need something more than thumbs, but what do I know?

Quilt on!

    I am confused about this sentence “The 2012 FQS Designer Mystery BOM finally (almost 6 weeks, which is very unusual when I send them out through our local shop, but I hear the quilter was ill so it’s all good.” Is it done?

    Love the hearts.

      The quilting is done. I just need to do the whole binding thing. Usually when I take my quilts to the LQS to send to one of their quilters they are back within three weeks – actually usually only one.
