Lessons From Mama - Block #4

Month four from "Lessons from Mama" is complete! I picked my kit up yesterday, and made the block this morning. These are not difficult blocks, and I'm so glad to be completing these, in a timely fashion, as I get them. In the past, when I've participated in BOM programs, I would procrastinate on getting started, only to have the blocks pile up and become overwhelming. This is why last year's Thimbleberries Big Quilt BOM is still sitting on the floor in my sewing room, incomplete. I am working on it, and plan to have it completed by year's end.

For the Love of ME

...Mary Engelbreit, that is! This is one of my UFO's (not on the challenge list), and it is now a quilt top! This is just a panel that I put several borders on, and paper pieced the little pinwheel corner stones. Quilting to come soon, as I hope to give this as a gift to a friend.

Yesterday, my local quilt shop hosted a "Quilter's Rumble" at a local community center. This was an all day event for those of us who are Super Bowl widows or non-football enthusiasts. It was a time to sew on any project you wanted and share in some good fellowship. So, I brought my ME fabrics that I purchased several years ago, and started on my top. I finished up the last border this morning.
