This Weeks blocks

Well, I didn't make much progress this week. I was able to get in the to CW blocks for the week. The first one is a catch up block and the second one is this weeks blocks.
I finally finished the stitching on month 8 of "Baltimore Bunnies". I have had this block prepped and sitting next to my sewing chair for about a month now.
I managed 7 more klosjes on my lunch hours. I think I have enough fabric prepped for 1 more block so it is time to start prepping more. Fun. NOT!
I also went to sew with the girls at The Orange Quilt Bee today. This is my favorite shop within a 20 mile radius from my house. If I could only go to one shop in my area, and there are many to chose from, it would be there. I guess I should have taken pictures to show you why. ugh! They would have been blurry anyway. LOL!

Anyway, I worked on "Vintage Valentine" today with hopes of getting the top finished. The fussy cutting and my chatting with friends took too long and I wasn't able to get her done. All I have left is the outside mitered borders. YAY!!

I hope you all have a great week. I am driving out to Las Vegas tomorrow morning to spend time with family. I heard there are some nice quilt shops there so I am hoping to ditch the family for a few hours to explore.

All great projects Yvette. I know you are glad to have worked on the Vintage Valentine for a bit. I did not know the corners were mitered. Don't know if I could have handled that.

Your CW blocks look wonderful and your bunnies are beautiful.
Cutting is my least fave part of the quilt process too.
Hope you have a fabulous time in Vegas!

Happy hunting for patchwork shops!

Theresa said...

Beautiful CW blocks, I love the bunnies best of all though :)

Robin said...

The CW blocks are awesome (that top one especially speaks to me... I could see a whole quilt in that!) and look at those happy bunnies! Sigh... I'm with you on the whole block prep thing. Cutting is definitely NOT my favorite thing to do. It's right up there with basting.
