Yippeeeee, a finish (plus weekly stuff)

Here is my "Stars in the Garden" all finished. My mom already claimed it for her winter quilt.

Here are this weeks BOW's for my traditional Dear Jane.

This is block #1 of Nearly Insane. We are now officially a little over 25% done with this quilt.
I was able to do some major work today in my sewing room. I am about an hour away from finishing another UFO. I am hoping to get it done this Wednesday when my mini-spring break starts. I have vowed to bust at least 3 UFO's before I start anything else.

Wow Yvette, the Stars in the Garden quilt is fabulous, I can see why you mom claimed it. You know I think I liked making the tris in the DJ more than the regular blocks.

I too have the Nearly Insane book but felt they weren't insane enough and designed some truly insane blocks. Some day I'll actually try making them LOL.
