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".
It's been busy around here lately. There are four quilts that needed sleeves and labels as I will be entering them into our local qu...
