Getting There!

I am slowly chipping away at my UFO pile. I was able to get all of my "An Angel Story" blocks put together. I went to 2 shops this afternoon to try to find a coordinating border fabric but had zero luck. I need to make the trek to Orange County for a quick shop hop to try my luck there. I made strips of different widths to attempt as many string quilt blocks I can get for the backing.
I was able to get another Wool block done during the week. I think I have four more left. :)
I wasted two precious hours of quilting time trying to get my Nearly Insane block of the week done. I ended up with a pile of scraps in the trash. I called Uncle and made an easier block and called it a day.
I was a good girl and stayed away from the Road to California show this weekend. I really don't need anymore projects or ideas. I will eagerly anticipate the Long Beach show this June.

That is an awesome quilt! I love, love, LOVE the angels.... you did an amazing job!! Are you going to quilt it? on the long arm that you took classes for? Inquiring minds!!

Your wool blocks are coming right along - you'll be done with that one before you know it!

Love the insane substitute... they don't all need to be so intricate, in my humble 2-cents opinion!

Wishing you a safe week commuting in the rains...don't wash away!!

Angel Story is just beautiful!!! Congrats on another UFO finish (or near finish... it still counts, I think!). :) Your other blocks are lovely as well. I can't believe you're nearly done with the wool ones. You seem to be blowing through that quilt!

I admire your restraint in avoiding temptation at the quilt show. I don't know that I could be that strong.

I love your Angel's story quilt.

I really can't wait to see your Nearly Insane quilt. It will be truly yours with the special blocks you're creating.
