How can this be?
Time is just flying by way too fast this year.
Where have I been? I attended the Grand Rapids AQS Quilt Show over a week ago.
I took my featherweight to keep me busy in my room as I didn't have a roommate this year. I used the above post card for my paper piecing. Yes....I was working on my Hearts and Hands ...again.

I have a charity quilt on it now that is varying sized strips and I am trying out different quilting designs in each of those strips. I had to stop tonight as I was running out of different ideas for the next few stripes.
Oh well, something will come up.

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...
