So I saw that a lot of quilters were making this Wonky quilt block and I had to try it out.  I did not read the directions like I should have and after cutting all the fabric I notice that my both sides of fabric were to be facing the same way.  Needless to say I have only enough to do 2 smaller lap quilts instead of 1 large quilt.  Boy this makes me mad but no one to blame but myself.  I will have 2 very cute lap quilts to give as baby present and my niece who just had a baby will get the first one.

This quilt I saw a picture of back on this site and I feel in love with it and had to make one of my own.  I'm not sure why I wanted to make such a dark quilt but it really did get my interest. 

Here is a quilt I started 4 years ago one weekend I was at my sister in laws house for a weekend sewing retreat. I finally decided that I would finish it for my boss who is adopting a 6 year old from Russia.  I have a total of 63 blocks to make.  These are the ones I made 4 years ago.  I am about 3/4 of the way thru making the other 60 and it will be so nice to have this quilt made and in the hands of someone that will love it.

You've been busy! I have been sort of out of the blogging world of late, too much going on, but now that school is out I hope to start making the rounds again!
