Slight Progress

I am making slow progress in putting together the 2 Nearly Insane-ish quilts. I have 1/2 done on each. If I were going to make another, (no, I'm not that crazy) I would put the rows together as I made them. I am hoping to get the two tops together next weekend and then square them up. Then the final decision on the borders has to be made. The block below is May's calendar redwork BOM from my local quilt shop.
The next block is a UFO I pulled from the bin. It is January's Tisket a Tasket BOM. I re-did it in wool. Complete with wonky handle. It wouldn't be a block made by me without a little wonkiness. :)
The next 2 blocks are the final blocks for the "Polka Dot Girls". All I need is time to put the block together and add it to the rest. Can someone spare time????

Last but not least is April's Catalicious BOM. It is the same as block #7 on Polka Dot Girls so there was a little deja vu working on it.
I hope everyone has a safe, happy, healthy week. I also hope everyone has time to work on things. If anyone can spare some please send it my way.

All your blocks look great! I just started stitching on the garden gate stitchery for the PDGs last night. I told you you'd beat me! LOL

Looks like you are making the most of the time you do have Yvette. Your NI'ish quilt is looking sooooo divine. I can't wait to see what you decide for borders.

All of your other projects are very well done...even the little wonky handle :o)

Oh isn't that Tisket Tasket block cute! Loving it! Can't wait to see what borders you pick for the insanes... I'm crossing fingers for that rick-rack looking one - but I'm sure anything will set off those stunning blocks!

Time.... Yeah, if you find a source, let me know. I hear sleep is overrated, but my body doesn't believe it! Have a great week!!

Yvette, you are indeed crazy if you can say at any given time that you've only "made a little progress"! Could you be ANY more productive? LOL

These are awesome, as always!

Girlfriend, you're on a ROLL - and I'm not talking "rolls of fat"...LOL I have enough of those for us both....ROFLOL (YES - ROLLING on the floor....)

You've been a busy girl, love your NIQ and all the blocks you're working on. Great Job!! Looks like your using your time wisely and getting more quilting done than me.

Robin said...

You never sit idle, do you? :) So many lovely blocks... I'm always in awe of all of the gorgeous stitcheries you do. And the NI tops are looking AMAZING. Wow!

Yvette, thank you so much for leaving me a comment on my blog a few days ago. I really appreciate you taking the time but what I'm most excited about is *your* blog. Wow! As soon as I read the title of your blog I knew I'd love it and I certainly do. Your work is gorgeous and I'm so pleased to see someone who has more than just a couple of projects on the go at once. (grin) I seem to be SO addicted to BOMs at the moment. I have 3 on the go and keep looking at others (sigh) I'm hopeless. Not only that, I'm in the planning stages of Aunt Millie's Garden and Dear Jane. If I'm sick, I don't really want any cure. ;o)

Hi Yvette, does your local quilt shop make the redwork BOM available on line?
