It just arrived this afternoon and was in the kitchen when I got home from work. This is the kit that I won as a blog giveaway fromVicky and Penny over at http://www.laquilter.blogspot.com/.
Upon opening it, this is what I saw.
There is almost 25 yards of fabric in there. How lucky can one gal get?!!! Thank you again Vicky and Penny.
Now to decide when I will get to this big project. I have so many UFO's calling my name. Maybe if I can get a few of them out of the way, I won't feel so guilty starting a new one.

.......at least with this one boring and very green block.
Well, I shouldn't dwell on the fact that I found this block to be "not so exciting" as I am sure it will fit in well with the whole scheme of things, but I am glad to be moving on to block #5 that was just posted. over at Sentimental Stitches.
Just to refresh your memories, Gay over at Sentimental Stitches is duplicating these patterns from an antique quilt that she has ; and I am taking the liberty of not making it in the colors of the original quilt, but making it in a "controlled", scrappy, red and green.
Well, now I can look forward to making a little more happy (something with red) block; and it's a basket block to boot, too! I love baskets!

Am I dating myself with that? or do kids still say those little rhymes? Of course I changed out potato for pineapple, but that is what came to mind as I was working on my next block for Beyond the Cherry Trees Album Quilt.

I needed a kick start this weekend. I have been such a slug. It must be the cold weather and wanting to come home from work and just hibernate. Well, I got a bunch of motivation from friends and it got me going on finishing my third block for "Beyond the Cherry Trees Album Quilt".
I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
One more day before the end of the year and I was hoping to get just one more quilt finished for 2017. I got this pattern from a b...

This quilt came about when I was going through my stash (trying to destash, actually) and I came across a layer cake. I did some research...
