Before my blog break, I signed up to participate in Bumble Bean’s 15 Minutes of Play scrap swap. My swap partner is Emily and here are the fun scraps I received. It’s actually not a good picture because I snapped it in the dark this morning. I went through all the pieces and there’s not one I already have…..they are all different!
We are to make a a block from made fabric using the scraps. That’s on my agenda for this weekend! Woo Hoo.
I had a birthday recently and my wonderful DH gave me an AAQI Priority quilt…..not only a Priority quilt but one he bid on and won in the February auction! Here it is on my office wall along with a piece I bought from Laura Wasolowski and another Priority quilt by Ann Scott. They make me smile every time I look up at them 🙂
I am the proud owner of another of Kristen Shields’ Priority quilts……titled Dandy Lion. Isn’t it grand?
Here’s my design wall which is getting crowded with all the Grandmother’s Choice blocks 🙂
I finished up the alternate first Saturday block where I made yet another fabric substitution 😉
My long arm Sophie & I bonded this weekend and I finished quilting our guild’s QOV string quilt. I quilted pretty densely as I hope this quilt gets lots of use and therefore lots of washes. I did loops and randomly placed stars….none of which show up well in the photo.
I’m happy that one of my recent Priority quilts has sold 🙂 I had a draft blog post I’d forgotten about that said these two quilts had been added to the Quilt for Sale page.
Summer Traveling #12,978 is still available here
Beach Living # 12,979 has sold 🙂

I made a replacement block #25 – The Carrie Nation Quilt from the Grandmother’s Choice BOTW.
Compare that to the first one I made:
I’m happier with the new block 🙂
Btw, my two Priority quilts, 12,978 and 12,979 are up for sale at AAQI.
Ami Simms is ceasing AAQI activities as of 12/31/2013 and is asking for a big sprint to the finish. Amazing that Ami will have raised over $1 million dollars. You can read about it here. The February Priority Quilt auction is currently underway and there are some terrific quilts, including 4 from Martha Wolfersberger, one of which is Twinklers
I have two Priority Quilts waiting assignment, #12,978 & 12,979. These are commercial embroidered pieces from a shirt I snagged at Goodwill. I hand quilted them and bound them with a flange.
