More on this quilt top here.  I'm about to get started on piecing the back of this together, and hopefully get it quilted soon!

In Progress


ABC Sampler progress

Pardon the crappy lighting here, I snapped this with my iPhone last night, but I've been making slow but steady progress on this little guy.  It is my go to hand progect when on the go, or vegging in front of  the TV.  While I really like how this is progressing, I already have visions of doing this again using the crewel yarn and possibly some different colors...

4x5 Modern Quilting Bee

4x5 bee block possibility

I started playing around with some block ideas for this round of the 4x5 bee, and made up a paper pieced test block of some flying geese in my colors.  I think I like it, but I'm not sold.  I may try it again with the angles a little more severe, I think it looks like I just sewed it together crooked, haha.
